NOLA

If you’ve been following along on insta, you’ll know that I just returned from a birthday celebration in the Big Easy! It was the perfect getaway amid the holiday season, and was full of Southern entertainment and hospitality. See below a full guide of some of my favorite spots and the looks I sported around town:
