The second you step foot in New Orleans, Louisiana, you are immediately engulfed in a wave of culture. It is a place that touches all of your senses. Detailed and colorful buildings line the streets. Various aromas of delicious food float through the air. Music from the street performers and nearby restaurants linger in your ears. And an overall sense of movement is present at every moment. I am in love with this city. There are so many hidden treasures to find, and stories to learn. 

During my trip to New Orleans, I went to this restaurant called Pere Antoine. I've been there once before, and I actually got the same thing as I did last time because I just loved it so much! I ordered red beans and rice with cajun sausage. Definitely recommend it if you decide to stop by there for a bite. Speaking of food, I also went to Cafe Du Monde where they have fresh beignets, which are sort of like doughnuts that are covered in loads of powdered sugar. Super messy but WORTH IT! I'm proud of myself for keeping my navy blue dress surprisingly free from any powdered sugar! Aside from the navy blue lace up dress that I purchased from Forever 21, I wore some strappy sandals from Target, a Sagittarius constellation necklace from Charming Charlie, a black leather cross body bag from Charlotte Russe, and some blue reflective sunglasses also from Forever 21.

Other than eating, my family and I pretty much just walked up and down as many streets as we could to explore all the cute shops they had. I put together a video of our adventures, so if you're curious and want to see a bit more of what we did, then definitely check it out! Hope you enjoy and have a fabulous day!

XO, Lauren
