New Orleans is fabulous, guys! I’m having a blast! And don’t worry these photos are not from The Big Easy…it’s much greener there, haha. I took these in Wisconsin just before I left. (And a reminder, you can see photos from my trip on Instagram.)

And I’m sorry, I know this dress has been featured on my blog a ton already. However, I love, love, love it! And can you ever have too much of a good thing? (I even brought it with me for my trip because it doesn’t wrinkle – perfect for traveling!) This dress was from my very first time participating in ModCloth’s Stylish Surprise, and it was my favorite stylish surprise to date. I can style this dress for any season/occasion – it’s awesome and so comfy!

Now that it’s warming up and brighter colors are entering my wardrobe, it was time to break out my Jump From Paper Bag again! I haven’t used it since last summer but this is easily one of my favorite accessories. It is such a fun conversation starter! People can’t believe it’s real even when they’re holding it, haha. Unfortunately, this exact purse is no longer available (it was limited edition last year), but Jump From Paper has so many cool backpacks and purses to choose from!

Also, I have to say, I’ve been wearing this LipSense lipstick non-stop. It’s so awesome! And this color goes perfectly with all my spring outfits and I like the way it makes my skin look. (Is it just me, or do certain lipsticks make your skin look better?) I also realized in my lipstick post I never mentioned what color I was wearing. (Doh!) It’s the Blue Red color. 🙂

I also promise I’ll have a post up on Wednesday with some photos from New Orleans… it will probably be a little later in the day than normal, though. (Our flight gets back pretty late on Tuesday.) 🙂

What are some of your favorite accessories that are great conversation starters? And is there anything in your wardrobe that you wear entirely too often? Let me know in the comments!

  1. You look so beautiful in this green dress! You paired it perfectly with this coral cardigan. That bag super unique too. I wear my favorite black heels and boots a lot.


  2. I love this dress! What an awesome stylish surprise!
    And I think the whole outfit is very springy – lovely.
    Much love,

  3. I love this outfit! That bag is amazing!! And the dress is gorgeous. I would wear that piece often as well, it looks so versatile! I tend to wear turtlenecks a lot, actually so much that I have a few of the same one, haha. I hope you are having a fun time in New Orleans!

    1. Thank you so much, Lili! Turtlenecks are something I need more of! New Orleans was a blast! 🙂

  4. You can wear this dress as much as you want! It looks fantastic on you and I love the color scheme. That bag always has me doing a double take haha. It doesn’t look real, but upon second glance you see that it is. I hope you’re having a wonderful time on your New Orleans trip!


    1. Aw, thank you so much, Amanda! Haha – I still can’t get over this bag either. 😉 And thank you – New Orleans was a blast!
