The deets: Madewell overalls (similar, other ones I love, fancy ass version); J.Crew tee; Ray-Ban sunnies; Knox Thomas Designs necklace; Rag & Bone booties; Kate Spade bag.
I wore these overalls to one of my besties mini's first birthday party. I figured if you can't wear them to a children's event, when the heck can you? But to be honest, I have broken them out waaaay more times than I assumed I would! They are super comfortable and easy. They make any day feel like Sunday at the farmers market. I have my eye on this short version so I can continue my overall obsession into the summer. Everyone should get a pair, they help you stay in touch with your playful side! I love that this particular pair is flared, I feel like a chick from That 70's Show.

Okay not a "sunnie" sale per se, but Shopbop IS having their buy more save more event (use code GOBIG) which I think is a good time to invest in some staples since they don't ever usually go on sale like, EVER. Here are a few of my absolute work horses. Also this sunglasses box was a very good find on Amazon, under $17 (here).

If I were a cat, my trip to New Orleans would have definitely shaved off a couple of my nine lives. It was unquestionably one of my all time favorite trips/cities. We didn't plan it, but it was the beginning of Mardi Gras when we went which may have been a contributing factor. NOLA was fully decked in it's best purple, gold, and green attire. The food was delicious, the people were gregarious and fun, the weather was pleasant, the bourbon flowed like water, and the music was top notch. What else can you really ask for? Aside from the awful hangover I would do it all again..and AGAIN! Below are the places I personally made it to and loved in case you found yourself here on a google search.
Cafe du Monde (beignets)
Pat O'Brien's (hurricane's)
Voodoo Authentica (voodoo magic)
Ticklers Dueling Piano Bar (debouchery and live music)
Airboat Adventures Swamp Tour (GATORS)
Blue Nile (music)
Dat Dog (late night gator hot-dogs)
Cat's Meow (karaoke)

The deets: SAM coat; UO tee; Madewell jeans; Knox Thomas Designs necklace; Baublebar earrings; MIA OTK boots; Alexander Wang pouch (similar, similar).
I never thought I would be someone who could rock over-the-knee boots. They seem like a thing reserved for the cooler, thinner, edgier women out there. Although hesitant, after a couple years of passing on the trend I decided to go for it when I read some reviews on these boots from other women who were curvier like me as my main concern was fitting them over my "American thighs." I was shocked to find they not only did they fit over but they fit over my jeans too! So any curvier women out there you should definitely buy these OTK boots. They aren't expensive and frankly aren't the MOST high quality but they get the job done. It was exciting to get to participate in the trend. I wore this out to Barrel & Bushel for a girls dinner a few weekends ago which was also something I would recommend. Super yummy! I had my bestie (and jewelry designer), Truly, snap some photos of my look before we left.
