Vacation Wears: NOLA 2015

New orleansNew orleans New orleans  New orleans   I am considering this a special edition of our "Work Wears" feature. This is random, but I thought it might be fun to share some of (well, most of) the outfits I wore on our four day trip to New Orleans earlier this month. 

At the airportThis is not only what I wore to the airport on our way there, I was also wearing this for our open house ceremony when we donated our Habitat for Humanity project house. It transitioned well since it was a pretty laid back event. It felt so good to finish up that project, and then later that afternoon jump on a plane with my husband for a short vacation. Such a fun day!

Maxi skirtI love a long, flowing maxi skirt, and this one I've had for years and just love! It's a vintage skirt that has a matching top (although I chose to wear it with a different top here). I've been thinking about using this skirt as a pattern to make another maxi the same size and fit. It's on my list of sewing-projects-that-might-be-above-my-skill-level-but-I'm-doing-it-anyway. Ha!

Black jumperOn the day we took a culinary bike tour of New Orleans, I opted to wear a jumper. It made getting on and off a bike much easier. I wish I had taken a picture of the back of this jumper because it's quite low and I chose to wear a black bra that has an interesting pattern with it. I feel like one of the keys to the whole show-your-bra with your outfit is to make it feel super intentional. 🙂

Denim dressThis was an outfit I wore just for the evening after the bike tour. I love this denim dress although this is only the second time I've gotten to wear it. It's vintage and originally went all the way to my ankles which made it feel heavy and sort of stiff. I decided to hem it a little shorter, and I'm SO glad I did. I also love the back tie detail—perfect summer dress.
