our first night in new orleans was amazing. our flight landed forty minutes early and we were able to hop in a cab, change at the hotel and head straight out on the town. we stopped in maison bourbon for a few drinks and some great jazz, had dinner at a pub on bourbon street and then headed to the vampire weekend show in louis armstrong park. so far, i completely love this place. everything is vibrant and the architecture blows my mind around every corner. i think jeb is ready for me to remove the camera from in front of my face.
we took these photos outside on our insane balcony that overlooks a gorgeous street in the french quarter. i wanted to wear something bright and fun for our first night (and lightweight due to the 90 degree weather.) i borrowed a few things from jill before we left, as my own summer wardrobe did not offer a whole lot of excitement after a full season of wear. this silk dress was perfect and i love the lace detailing on the back. it was perfect for shimmying my way down bourbon street while drinking a foot tall hurricane. (note: brooke and hurricanes do not agree. both jeb and i felt ill almost immediately after sucking those things down. but we're in nola, so no option there!)
i plan on trying to post twice daily while i am here. typically a 'wiley wears' post followed by a post of pictures of all the beautiful things here later in the day.
happy columbus day!
