We took the trolly from St. Charles to the quarter which was our main mode of transportation.  I wore an oversized white shirt with black denim shorts (found in New Orleans) and the Birks. The shirt has been with me for over a year now.  I re-stock on it or a baggy version of it since it goes with anything and packs down to nothing in the suitcase.  The Birks are basically outdoor slippers which I think we all owned at some point (ok not all of us but I did making them a familiar/practical sandal while here). 
We had brunch that day and spent about three hours checking out the local art, taking in the music, sight seeing blah blah. Read: We were trying to work off the brunch food baby which is pretty pointless since dinner later was just as calorific.

    You look beautiful, and I’m so glad to see that New Orleans has come back. Such a gorgeous city.
    Your hair is terrific. May I ask what you use to keep your edges (hairline) so smooth?

      Thank you lovely! I just got my hair relaxed about a week before the trip so that’s probably why its like that although my hair line looks like this normally too. I use a tiny flat iron to straighten from the roots and then just tuck it behind my ear. Hope that helps?

    I love the monochrome look. I’m such a black and white girl though i’m trying to get more into color. Those birkenstock keep calling my name cause they look so darn comfortable!

    • Karen says:

      OMG they are!! Feels like flip flops but not as errr bad as flip flops. I want to wear more colour this summer too. REALLY bright colour.
