I love jumpsuits, rompers, and dresses all for the same reason...they are so easy. Instant outfit, instant style. Even if you aren't the most stylish person, the no fuss of throwing on a one piece look makes anyone and everyone an instant fashionista. 

What are you feelings on jumpsuits? Love them or hate them???

New Orleans: Part Two

dress (similar): H&M/tights: H&M/ booties: Chelsea Crew Black Label/purse: H&M

Truth be told, I'm kind of obsessed with this dress. Yes, I know I look more like Wednesday Addams than a Southern Belle...but I'm from NYC, so deal with it.  :-)

Here is a final roundup of some my favorite shots while on our New Orleans trip. Enjoy!

My husband was horsing around...and so were the horses...

One thing that really won over my heart in New Orleans was the bright and bold colors. Blue shutters, purple doors, hot pink front stoops...and even this gate door that was covered in bottle caps! So charming and quirky...I love it.

And I'm not one for nature (at all), but these trees were amazingly beautiful!

All in all we had a nice trip...saw a lot. If you followed along on my Instagram you got to see even more shots from our adventure. It was so good to get out of NYC for a little...but we're glad to be back. 

Now...where to next???

New Orleans Babydoll

So this past weekend Chris and I went on a little mini-getaway to New Orleans. Neither of us had ever been there, so this was a fun little adventure for the both of us. 

We spent the extra long weekend walking around the town, snapping photos of the amazing architecture, looking at art, and eating beignets at Cafe Du Monde ( yes, they really were all they were cracked up to be). They were definitely not on the endo diet I have been on...but I couldn't resist!

dress: Esley/ballet flats: H&M/bracelets: vintage

I'm sure if you look closely in these photos you can see my goosebumps. Don't get me wrong, it was a pretty decent weekend (and way warmer and dryer than NYC's weather)...but this day it did not get quite as warm as what they were calling for. As soon as we ate our beignets and drank our cafe au laits we went back to the hotel so I could grab my coat, tights, and booties. I'm such a wimp!

I love this new dress I picked up at one of the best boutiques in my neighborhood called Pema New York. Don't you just love the little snowflake design? It's my new favorite babydoll dress in my closet.

The architecture was so pretty. Around every street corner there was an even prettier house and more ornate iron work on the balconies. So lovely.
