Travel Series – Austin and New Orleans in May

Hi there! Hope everyone’s summer is off to a good start. Other than Memorial Day weekend, Chicago has been a little chilly. Hoping for a warm up here soon!

I spent Cinco de Mayo in Austin with my best friend since childhood, April, and then traveled down to New Orleans for a wedding the following weekend. Both so much fun!

Friday night we headed to Punch Bowl Social for some bowling and games. I dressed down this romper with a denim jacket and my favorite converse sneakers. I love taking rompers for weekend trips. One piece items are the best way to save space and this romper is very versatile. I have it in the navy, but want it in a second color!

I’m wearing it in this cute pic of April and me, but you can’t see much!

On Cinco de Mayo April and I headed out for a nice brunch together. Mexican food of course! Or Tex Mex anyway… I wore this American Eagle crochet dress that is one of my faves. Dress it up for a night out with some heels, or down with a pair of flat sandals. Wearing a medium in the dress.

Saturday and Sunday were spent by the pool in my two favorite one-pieces and cover-up

I headed down to New Orleans just in time to make the pre-wedding party. It was a casual event at an outdoor spot, so much fun, pictured here with my friend, Anna. Once again, a romper was an easy way to go. Unfortunately, this one is sold out, but I’ve linked to some similar options. These wedges have become my summer go-to!

For the daytime on Saturday, I wore this knit dress that is so comfy, flattering, and affordable. Comes in multiple colors, I have it in the navy stripe and the pink!

For the wedding in the evening I of course rented a dress from Rent the Runway – and I absolutely loved this one! I was able to get the earrings and bracelet with my unlimited membership as well.

The wedding was beautiful, the bride looked gorgeous, and we got to be part of the parade from the wedding location to the reception. So fun and danced all night! These shoes were very comfy and the heel height was just perfect. Currently on sale for $75!

Here I am with the groom in the middle, we call him “Friend Nick”, and my male BFF, “Irish Nick”. There is also a “Neighbor Nick” and “Firefighter Nick” in our circle of friends – so you can understand the need for the prefixes!

Sunday, Irish Nick and I set out on a NOLA adventure that ended up with us changing our flights to come home Monday morning instead of Sunday night – we were having too much fun! Once again wore a romper, because you know, one piece. Basically I made it through the weekend with 4 items and 3 pairs of shoes – not bad! This romper is sold out, but I’ve linked to some other great casual options.
