What to wear in New Orleans // Southern Belle Aesthetic

Why I DO declare!

Hi cuties! How's your week going?

As you can tell, I'm trying to pop in here a little more often with updates and posts. I loved writing the last blog about New Orleans (I wrote most of it on the plane ride back!), and I just wanted to share with my favorite look for the trip!

So as you can tell from my last post, I fell hard for New Orleans during our recent trip. And when I was thinking about what to wear there, my first instinct was to conjure up some super femme, southern belle vibes. This gorgeous floral dress from Shein was literally perfect!

When I saw this dress, I knew I had to wear it in New Orleans. It was exactly what I was looking for. The pink floral pattern, lace collar and ruffled hem were totally the feel I was going for.

Not only that, but I can't tell you the number of compliments I received while wearing this dress!

First of all... that cashier at Cafe Beignet legit thought I was Zooey Deschanel. 😱😱 Like what?!  When I was ordering, she kept staring at me, then finally asked me if I was her. I mean... I don't seriously think I look like Zooey except for the dark hair + bangs. Still, it was one of the most flattering moments of my life.

Dear Cafe Beignet cashier girl... just know if you're out there you totally made my whole entire month 💓


Next thing.... And I really don't mean this in a braggy way ... but as I was walking down the street, several strangers kept stopping me to compliment me. One guy was walking past- and he stopped, smiled, and said all Southern gentlemanly "Well, you sure do look nice today, miss." 😍 Another group of guys bowed down and declared me 'Queen of the Sidewalk.'

And my ego grew 10 sizes that day 😂

Haha, okay.. Now I'm officially done basking in the memory of all those compliments. But I really do think that when you're wearing something you're confident in, it shines out of you and people notice!

Anyway, hope you're having a lovely week friends! What are you up to?
