Slow Down

white denim overalls


silver mirror aviators

Dungarees: Thrift/second hand shop bought last year (saw these by Topshop River Island or Free People).  Slip ons: Kurt Geiger (try these KG’s on sale ,  Vans, plains by Vince or these Torys).  Shades: Ray Ban.  Leather bag: Madewell (similar by Marie Turnor on sale).  Bangle: House of Harlow (similar by Bing Bang)

You know when you come back from being away and you have a crap load of clothes, letters, photos (still) and general crap to sort out? That’s me right now.

I feel so chilled from the road trip that it’s spilling over into my return where I have no interest in sorting through anything – I am though slowly.  Looking at these pictures sums up the feeling.

This was at the B & B we stayed at on St Charles in New Orleans (getting flash backs to this porch shot in 2010). The fact that most homes have porches and balconies with chairs to laze around still impresses me and it’s everywhere you go.

  11. Body Shaper says:

    You look amazing in these photos. Love your style and outfits. Can you tell me which is the best body sharper on the market?


  12. says:

    Hi Karen! Love your outfit and Love that you don’t use high heels 🙂 Its really cool how you manage to pop up all your outfits without heels! I also stopped wearing them after knee injury

  13. Karen says:

    Dominique W – yea I heard how bad it still is. So depressing….

    Sean and Laura – the B&B address is 4125 St Charles – have a look!

    Steph B Moore – the tshirt is an old random find from Old Navy I think? I remember thinking what the heck is something like this doing there? it reads Southern across the top and underneath has words about New Orleans.

    Lavenderloafers – holy….. okaaaay. wow that’s a huge statement to make but thank you!!

    Karen, i ofetn read you blog but am always perplexed at the fact that it doesn’t really show any minorities except for yourself. Your street style pictures… just the whole shebang. Is there a reason, or do you just not mix in certian circles?

  15. Karen says:

    Anon – maybe you’ll be surprised then by what I’ve shot in New Orleans….

  16. Ashley Taylor says:

    Love this setting. You always have great photos

    xo Ashley

    I love this post Karen. One of the reason why we got a house with a veranda like that is for the fact that you can chill in the evenings and of course while enjoying a cold one. You look fabulous with your overalls and sneakers. What a great look!! If you ever decide to visit North Carolina (perhaps Asheville) let me know.

    In love with those slip-ons. The vans are a great alternative too!
