Normally, I don’t get to say this (and mean it), but Happy Tuesday!!
This Florida girl loves all things New Orleans and that, of course, includes my favorite holiday, Mardi Gras! Take one last day to enjoy your favorite snacks and treats, like King Cake (yum), before Lent starts.
My love for the Crescent City all started five years ago when my mom and I went to New Orleans for my 21st birthday weekend. Everything about the city spoke to me: the history, the music, the architecture, and the food!! Since then, I’ve been visiting the city two or threes a year, taking any chance I can get for a trip. Each time, it becomes harder and harder to leave. Who knows, eventually, I may just stay there.
Mardi Gras is a day to celebrate! AKA, the perfect excuse to wear your brightest and happiest colors. I opted for this Lilly Pulitzer Elsa Top. This particular patterns, Dripping in Jewels, is a perfect match for all the beads and goodies thrown your way. I wore it to Mardi Gras a few years ago and got showered with compliments. Even though this print isn’t current, any Lilly print would be fitting. I’ve linked some of my favorite prints that will make you feel right at home in New Orleans. Be sure to check them out!
How do y’all celebrate Mardi Gras? Even though there’s no wrong way to celebrate, enjoy some cake on me.
