My trip is over, but I now get to go through all the photos I took while in New Orleans and share them with you all! Prepare yourselves for many colored walls, haha! I really loved how brightly colored all the buildings are… and took full advantage of this for outfit photos.

These photos were from our very first day in New Orleans. (The photos with the church in the background are from Jackson Square.) We got in around 11 a.m. and were surprised at the lack of people in the streets. We would later figure out, this was because everyone was still sleeping. Haha. I wore dresses and skirts for the entire trip – it was much warmer than the weather we were used to, but boy was it windy! (See photo below. I don’t think I could’ve made a more derpy face if I had tried, haha.)

I don’t even want to think about how many people may have seen my undies, thanks to the wind! But wearing this dress was worth it…it’s so cute! This one is another from my favorite little boutique, Lilee Fashion (in Australia). I’ve featured this boutique many times, because I love their dresses! This one looks, fits and feels just like one of Closet’s skater dresses (a.k.a ModCloth’s Luck be a Lady dresses) but Lilee Fashion’s prices are almost half of what Closet & ModCloth are charging.

And just a reminder of how shopping with Lilee Fashion works (if you don’t happen to live near Brisbane!), just click here (this is their Facebook page) and comment on the photo of the dress you want. You’ll then be given the size, price, shipping info, etc. And you can pay via PayPal. 🙂

I included this photo, not because I particularly like it, but because it’s the only photo I have of myself on Bourbon Street. This is the street everyone thinks of when they think of New Orleans…but boy, it just wasn’t my scene! While my husband was taking photos of me a guy jumped in front of him and put his rear end up to the camera, and then there were guys on the balcony to my side shouting for me to “show my boobs.” Good grief! (Does my face look like I’m ready to kill someone? Haha.) I’ll be putting together a little travel post for Friday of all the fun things we did…there’s a lot more to New Orleans than Bourbon Street! 🙂

Has anyone else checked out Lilee Fashion’s dresses? And has anyone else been to New Orleans? What were your thoughts on Bourbon Street? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I took one look at that dress in my blog feed and I said to myself, “Closet London!” so that is funny you said it is very like theirs! Youlook so pretty in this (including the Derpy face- adorable!) I adore Closet London so much- I have about 14 of their dresses as there used to be an outlet for them near my school. It closed about 2 months ago as the owners were retiring and I was so sad. I always used to go in there on the way to my orchestra rehearsal in London and buy a dress. And the number of people I bought them for as presents! Now I have to buy them full price- boooo!!!xx

    1. Haha, you have to love Closet London! And thank you so much! Again, you are far too kind, Kezzie! 🙂 If you are at all interested in Lilee Fashion’s dresses – she does ship to the UK too. 🙂 (Much cheaper than full price Closet dresses.)

  2. These photos are gorgeous! And that is too funny about the wind and Bourbon St. It sounds like you had a fun time! And I love that dress! I haven’t heard of Lilee fashions, but I’ll have to check out the site.

  3. Lovely dress. You look a complete dream in it! I’m gonna check them out.
    I don’t know, but I don’t really think Bourbon st would be my cup of tea either. I don’t drink at all, so really there wouldn’t be much to do there I think… I understand that you would be disappointed.
    You looked fab though!
    Hope you’re having a great weekend.
    Much love,

    1. Thank you, Mona! You’ll love Lilee Fashion! 🙂 Yeah, if you don’t drink, there’s not too much else going with Bourbon St. But there is plenty of other things to experience in the city! I hope you’re having a great weekend too!

  4. This is the perfect outfit for exploring! It’s such a fun bright dress to wear during Spring time. Hahaha omg that was me in my recent post when it was super windy and I was basically flashing everyone too:p. Too funny


    1. Thank you so much, Ela! Haha! Glad I’m not the only one who was having wardrobe malfunctions! 😛

  5. Yay travel photos!! That dress is stunning. These pictures make me want to go back to New Orleans! I definitely didn’t like Bourbon street either!

  6. Yay, pictures from your trip! New Orleans definitely looks like a fun place to visit. Lol, Bourbon Street doesn’t really sound like my kind of scene either. Oh well, the brightly colored walls will make up for it haha! This dress is beautiful on you and it does remind me of the Closet ones, which have always been a favorite of mine. Can’t wait to see more pictures!


    1. Thank you so much, Amanda! Haha is there anything better than a brightly colored wall? 😉 More photos coming soon! 🙂

    1. Thank you, Lori! I should’ve asked you for recommendations before we left! I forgot you were not there long ago. 🙂

  7. That’s such a cute dress, love the floral prints on it. I’m glad you enjoyed your trip.


  8. Beautiful dress! Looks like you had fun! I didn’t notice your face was mad, but I wouldn’t blame you. I guess that jerk was already partying!

    1. Thank you so much, Laurie! And oh yes, there were plenty of people partying very early! And we had a good time too! 🙂
