November in New Orleans

New Orleans street signs

Thought I’d share a few photos from our trip to New Orleans last week for my friend’s wedding!

We stayed on a quiet street in the French Quarter.

New Orleans french quarter

Street musicians hanging out in Jacksons square.

New Orleans homes

The beautiful wood work from one of countless pretty residential homes.

White oxfords

 Me clowning around on Canal Street in an Asos dress and brogues from Kurt Geiger.

New Orleans brunch

I took a photo of a friend’s pancake stuffed with bananas. He smothered it in maple syrup.  This was his second dish at the table and by the way he looks like a tooth pick.

New Orleans balconies

The intricate wrought iron work seen everywhere.


This photo to me symbolizes the jazz music culture and life in the city. 

New Orleans

Throughout the Quarter at street intersections you see the street names written on tiles on the pavement.  My shoes are from a vintage shop in Brooklyn.  You can see better photos of them here

French Toast

Shared french toast. My first breakfast when we arrived.

New Orleans jazz

This is one of my fave shots that I took.  As Michael passed him he said to the man: “You are looking sharp!”  The man replied: “Every day.”

Rebecca Minkoff bag

I bought this lemon coat and black velvet dress at a local vintage shop in the Quarter.  I walked out of the shop (The Revival Outpost) wearing them both as soon as they were paid for.  Wearing a yellow/tan Rebbeca Minkoff bag was purely coincidental.  You can get the bag here in black and white or here in pink. I removed the straps and wore it as a clutch for the wedding. 

Port of Call New Orleans

This is Michael’s fave spot to eat a loaded jacket potato: Port of Call on Esplanade.  I took this shot of  him offering some of it to my mate Paula. I loved the light coming from the window here. 

New Orleans mansions

After lunch we continued down Esplanade. We saw this stunning mansion which had this beautiful dog standing at the top of the stairs outside a large open front door. It just reinforced that this is actually someone’s home.

Lucky sod.

You can follow me on Instagram to see more photos taken while I was there.
