The Road Trip to Nola

Silver mirror aviators
Ignore the momentary poker face. Here’s photos of our 3,000 mile round trip to down south.

The leather jacket, indian skirt, t-shirt and bangle are finds during the trip.
Mirror aviators are Ray Ban and white minnetonka boots are All Saints (similars by Ash, Shoebuy or Free People)

What a trip! We’ve never done a road trip to New Orleans before. The only down side was the flat tire moment which resulted in a 6 hour wait for a newly ordered wheel leaving us stuck in Walmart for an entire day. I also wish that we had stayed for the weekend since there were so many hotels in downtown New Orleans that I would have loved to visit. I’m sure we’ll make a weekend of it next time we visit. There was so much to do that it was pretty hard to cram all of the activities in one day!

Road trips are so much fun, but you need to make sure that your car is up to the job! One of my friends just got an amazing vehicle for her next road trip after checking out some of the used cars from Conklin Cars. You could take a look too if you are due an upgrade.

Outside of that it was fascinating to see how America lives outside of New York: the food, the houses, just everything. I tell you what though, generally speaking it’s a hell of a lot cheaper and more spacious.

ps. Thanks to everyone for the recommendations on where to visit. Shout out to the reader who suggested Asheville. It’s as pretty as you had told me.
