The Big Easy

July 7, 2019


I’m still here in New Orleans and this trip has been nothing short of amazing. This city is quickly becoming one of my favorites and being a part of Essence Festival just makes it that much more special. There’s something about coming together as a community to celebrate one another that is unexplainable. I have had so many laughs, so many “hey girl hey’s”, and of course, so much good food.

Aside from the festival, my favorite thing about this city is for sure the architecture. There’s nothing like it. So many 100+ year old buildings with original features just make walking around so dreamy. So many beautiful colors, bright shutters, and picturesque balconies.

So this outfit just blended right in with this colorful city. The humidity here is at an all time high so I wanted to keep things breathable and flowy. This kimono was perfect to add a pop of color with ease.

Check out the outfit details below and follow along the rest of my trip on Instagram!
