New Orleans Packing :: Lusting Over...

So I am headed to the great state of Louisiana early tomorrow morning and I couldn't be more excited.  Louisiana is one of my favorite states, especially Baton Rouge and New Orleans.  I come back 10 pounds bigger because the food is so great and in such a good mood because everyone is insanely nice.  Whenever I head to New Orleans I wish I had a closet full of DVF.  Don't ask me why but I think the prints, colors, and bodies would be perfect for roaming Bourbon and Magazine Street.  Someday I will go there and wear the fabulous dresses I envision the wind blowing through, but for now I will wear my maxi dresses and dream.

This is what I would wear on my Louisiana adventure if my bank account would allow...

A girl can dream can't she?

I am going to take as many pictures as possible for the short and busy time I'm there and try to convince the rest of the world why New Orleans is one of my favorite places on earth...

Pillow Me Preppy

Anyone who knows me knows I love anything preppy, an anchor, a boat shoe, a crab, a good lighthouse, you get the drift.  When I found these pillows on Kain Kain's Etsy page I did a little gasp.  How horrible!!! There are way to many options... how on earth do you expect me to decide? I don't have enough pillow space in my apartment for these! Could I cover my dining room chairs with them maybe?  {No but I'm serious, would that weird?} Who knows what I will do but she has an amazing array!
Don't worry, if you aren't a self proclaim lover of all things preppy she has more that aren't! They are all around $22, she even has placemats!  I better hurry before Summer's over and it would be weird to have a sailboat pillow on my couch...

Steals & Deals

Finally, I think my outfit for Saturdays 80's bash is complete.  I am going to save the blog for after the party as I think a lot of you are going to pee your pants when you see my shirt {I said this last night and for some reason it seems the most fitting phrase to describe it's awesomeness}.

While out last night finding finishing touches for my outfit I also found this ring.  From Forever 21......

The best part? She was $2.80!!  I couldn't find her online so you will have to venture to a store. I know... it sounds horrible but if you go Tuesday evening it's not that bad.

Here are some others I think I am going to add to my collection of cheap, turn your finger green rings...

The best part is they are all less then $5.... I am going to need a new jewelry box.   I thought I was too old for Forever 21 but I guess I'm not.... oops.

Excitement :: iPhone Cover

Ok, so I haven't done it yet and I am sure my friends are REALLY sick of hearing me say "Maybe this week I'll get an iPhone?" Considering I have said it for the last 6 weeks... but really I feel it, this is the week!  I told someone the other day that the most exciting part was picking which cute case I am going to get.  I don't know how I'll decide but then I realized I can get A LOT of them and match them to my outfits! {insert your eye roll here}. Don't worry, I'm pretty sure she rolled her eyes too, or just gave me a weird look and laughed at me like she usually does when I say ridiculous things.

Well, in preparation for the big event {shhh don't tell the Blackberry, she'll get moody}, I am in a deep search for the perfect first case.

Here are the front runners... what do you think?

I can't decide.  I also need a laptop case too... Kate Spade has matching ones.  Ugh... decisions decisions... More then one is a must!

What I Wore :: Pink Pleats

I have been in Atlanta now for what feels like forever.  Did I move into the Westin downtown? I think so...  I started off on a good outfit foot though.  This is what I wore to market on Thursday, my packing has failed me and it's only gone down hill from there, luckily I wear samples most days.  A girl I work with told me I looked like Blair from Atlantic-Pacific this day so obvi I had to document the look.  I immediately told her she was my favorite person in the entire world for saying that... it may have freaked her out a bit.

Anyway, I finally had a coworker take a picture of me wearing my new favorite pleated pink skirt from Line & Dot.  I love that it's long enough to wear with my new extremely tall wedges too.  

Please excuse the bad background.  My one stipulation was that we had to go where no one could see her taking my picture.  That meant the back hallway of the showrooms that is not the most pleasing thing to look at.  I also told her she had to hurry so no one would question our sanity, which is why these are the only 2 pictures. You get the idea though.

I have been dreaming about these ladies for a good month now.  I finally pulled the trigger and can't stop wearing them.

Finally back to Dallas tomorrow night, just in time to catch up on the Bachelorette before finishing my last 4 days of work after an 18 day stretch finally comes to an end.
