Road trip fashion, riding in style but comfort.
Vacation has been amazing and off to a great start. We had a blast in Tallahassee and New Orleans. Now off to Houston today then Ft. Worth Monday to the rental property for the week. Wanted to quickly post some of my outfits. A few I picked for the comfort of riding long hours in the car and others for exploring New Orleans, which was very hot and then dinner for Hubby's birthday.
Next week will do my best to post my blog post I did about South Florida swim suit designers and hot swim wear for this summer since it is swim week in South Florida, also will have some other posts about some shops and brands I am rep'ing for now. Excited to be a Silver Jeans ambassador along with collabing with BohemianVibeBoutique. I have posted here and on IG links for both. Going to have an entire post dedicated to both with products, reviews and links.
Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend and enjoy my photos, going to throw in a few I snapped on my phone of the trip.
At FSU campus // Tallahassee Florida
Everfitte // Friday I'm in love tee // Buckle shorts and fringe silver necklace from Tillys.
Passing through Mississippi on our way to New Orleans, LA.
Trying to snap a shot of the welcome to Louisiana sign while hubby was driving 65-70 on the highway. Not bad lol.

\\ New Orlean's photos //
New Orleans, LA known for this amazing signature dish, Jambalaya with chicken and sausage.
Mardi Gras masks, and of course beads are huge in every souvenior store.
\\ Beware when traveling with kids in the souvenir stores lots of adult novelty items //
\\ New Orlean's street car or trolley //
\\ We stayed at the amazing Loews hotel in the French quarter across from Harrah's casino //
New addition to my large graphic tee and tank collection // Rolling Stones // It's only rock n' roll// graphic tank with distressed torn look. Found at the original Peaches.
Modeling my new FSU gear I grabbed and stocked up on in Tallahassee which I wore around the hotel Friday night. Here have on a maroone sports bra with logo, white racer back thin tank, and the yoga pants I got at the Tallahassee Walmart. Managed to get several tanks, sports bras, tees, PJ bottoms, yoga pants, flip flops, head band and socks. Exciting for this huge college football fanatic, go Noles.
Even though I live in Florida they don't sell a lot of FSU in south Florida thanks to UM. Happy to have gotten to visit, been years since we have driven to a game there and I love all my new goodies just in time for football season. Excitedly football season is only weeks away. Yay!
Light weight romper and knit vest with fringe detail. // www.maurices.com // you can find my romper, vest and Lacey Ryan jewelry. Wearing a triple layer Lacey Ryan necklace and bracelets.
Bad color and lighting but wanted to capture my new rose gold ombré using Pravana dye and Olaplex treatment to protect and help reverse damage while preventing damage. Amazing product.
\\ Cafe Du Monde • Beignets • LA //
Must have if in New Orleans, LA. These amazing fried dough and powdered sugar treats are amazing. Way better than funnel cake. Make sure you go to Cafe Du Monde because there are a few knock off spots that just are not the same
\\ Cafe Du Monde Beignets //
New Orleans, LA
Only had one of my suitcases in New Orleans and didn't have my dresses then the one dress I had out to wear forgot the bra I wear with it, because it's very see through light material, was in my other bag also. Had to scramble but luckily found this Top and maxi from Forever21. Carrying my JCrew, madewell black bag
Last of all on our way to Texas, hit traffic seams to be some construction and lane closures. Luckily I wore this comfy // Epic Weekend tank with feather graphic //
Paired with a comfy elastic waist, with pockets, maxi skirt in coral. My favorite jewlery pieces on my neck, wearing my rhinestone encrusted feather charm from eBay and my raw citrine stone mounted with a silver hook and chain. The citrine necklace is by one of my favorite jewelry designers and Etsy shops, @AdamRabittjewelry on IG and I have in my favorite shops links on my side bar for full desk top version of my blog.
My little one got me this cute VooDoo doll in New Orleans. I got her the mom protector one and she got me the guardian angel one. Hopefully this will help protect me from negative vibes. I am more of a spiritual person than religious, I was raised Christian but don't go to church but have strong spiritual beliefs, I am ALL about good karma, energy, positivity and vibes. Just how I have always been. Much like a hippie or even like the island people. Due to my health and losing my dad to leukemia I know how short and precious life is. After you loose one of your parents, you really have this new outlook on how short life can be we are not guaranteed how long we have and our time could be over at any moment, I make sure I am content with my decisions and how I have treated others. Which I am.
Have a great Sunday and praying this traffic let's up. Can't wait to see Texas.
