TRAVEL || NEW ORLEANS FOODIES

Let’s eat! New Orleans, Louisiana, is known for their authentic Cajun seafood cuisine. From touristy must haves to local favorites, here are a few places you have to try out when you visit!

CAFE DU MONDE || This is for sure the most visited restaurant in the city. The line is alwayyyysss a block long due to it’s coveted beignets, but these sugary fried fritters are worth the wait! This staple cafe is easy to find as it is located by the popular French Quarter.

FRENCH MARKET || The French Market has a lot going on. Venders are set up everywhere for lots of souvenir shopping. Definitely go around lunch time so you can get some seafood straight out of the coast! Food vendors line the edge so take a walk to explore your options and pick what you’re craving. They have tables set up for you to sit at and the market is covered, so you are set to chow down even if it’s pouring down!

BAYOU BEER GARDEN || When the weather is nice and you want to sit outside, the Bayou Beer Garden is a nice, chill spot to go. We went to watch football games and eat lunch. You really need to order the Famous BBG Disco Fries while you are there! I’m talking french fries, gooey melted cheddar cheese, and savory roast beef debris gravy. Oh and you’ll want to bring a friend to split them with!

THE TCHOUP YARD || This was probably my favorite place from our last trip to Nola because it’s vibe is definitely in my comfort zone. They have a restaurant with glass garage door walls that they can raise if weather permits. A large gravel area is set up outside with umbrellaed tables, TVs everywhere to watch sports, and corn hole boards- not to mention it’s dog friendly!! When you go, you HAVE to get the totchos with Mexican chorizo. It is basically tater tot loaded nachos! *insert heart eyed emoji* They are so good that I’ve tried to replicate them at home. It tasted good but just wasn’t the same. I need to go back!

GRIS GRIS: Date night at Gris Gris, please and thank you! This two story restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating is aesthetically pleasing to the eyes and won’t break the bank. When you walk in, you see the beautiful open kitchen with pots and pans hanging above. I’m really glad we got to see the plates being prepared because that’s how we picked what we ordered. Everything looked so good and tasted even better!

Happy eating!

This hoodie comes in grey and white. The distressed look adds interest and sass- especially when paired it with sneakers and white shorts. Alabama summers make for hot temps outside and cool temps indoors. This is the perfect combo for running in and out of shops. Running errands never looked so cute!

| shop this top |

My favorite thing about this top is its appropriate for anywhere you go. You can dress it up or down. Not to mention, you can wear a “normal” bra! The lattice sleeves are a fun and interesting detail. The material is SO soft and it comes in three colors.

Mad for plaid. Your new favorite shift dress is here! I styled it with some chunky black heels but it will also be adorable in colder weather with black tights and booties. It gives off an Alabama vs Georgia game day vibe for all you college gals out there! Side note: I know I’m showing a lot of leg (#TallGirlProblems) but it will be a great length for people of normal heights, ha!

Blue and white stripes are very popular! This top brightens the day and makes you want to go to the beach. The ruffled collar adds a unique pop of flare. Short hair or an up-do is perfect for showing off the collar. White jeans are a must to really complete the look!

My favorite style is off the shoulder! I love showing off the collar bone. It makes me feel feminine! This top is made of very comfy, soft, stretchy fabric. The elastic makes for a custom fit that won’t fall down. This top also comes in weathered grey.

Say hello to this grey cross body tank. This is one of those pieces you want to have in your closet because it is good for stylish dressing on the go. I’m all about the soft and stretchy material for comfort. The inverted V front is perfect for pairing with high-waisted jeans! This top also comes in black.

Happy Shopping!

FASHION || BLUSH CRUSH

I’ve never liked the color pink so it pains me to say… I have a BLUSH CRUSH & just in time for Valentines!

I’m crazy about knits with this cold weather- and velvets too. All about that comfort! A blush top or cardigan on Valentines will not disappoint. You can also add some fun accessories like heart shaped sunnies or blush sneaks! Hope these blushing beauties inspire your Valentines/Galentines outfit! xoxo
