I am headed to New Orleans on Thursday with six of my girlfriends to celebrate my dirty 30! First things that comes to mind is 'What To Wear On Vacation?!" As someone who often procrastinates, I am proud of myself this time around because I started early. I have been slowing coveting pieces for vacation since mid-April.
I wanted to bring a chic outfit for a going out to a nice dinner but nothing that clings to the body since the weather is hot and humid. When I think of New Orleans, I think of colors. That’s why these super light weight pants is my best bet! The legs are super wide and flowy and the top tapers to a very form fitted finish but doesn't cling to the body. Plus, I am going to New Orleans for the food so I definitely wanted little extra space in my pants (#fatgirlproblems). Haha! I paired this off-the-shoulder ruffle crop top with it. Both runs true to size.
After traveling and living in many tropical countries, I can say that anything loose and flowy is the for the heat and humidity. The extreme humidity prevents swear from evaporating, so anything constricting will be like wrapped in cellophane.
The pants are long so you definitely want to wear some of platform shoes with it. I paired it with these comfortable platforms (runs small; order next size up). If you're not into those pants but love the print, good news that it comes in a dress, romper, and cover up!
I'm a chronic over-packer, yet I still feel as though I've forgotten something when I'm on vacation. I am defintely putting together a list this time so stay tune for my full packing guide!
