Crescent City Blues

Happy belated Turkey Day! We spent our day with family and friends in the Big Easy! Here are a few pictures of what we wore and a little street fashion we saw along the way. We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Check out the pictures and enjoy!



Tamra wore BCBGeneration dress, H & M scarf and jean jacket, and Jessica Simpson black leather boots.

I wore Urban Outfitters floral skirt, Old Navy t-shirt, lace cardigan from Target, and Vince Camuto boots.


These two lovely ladies were taking the streets 20's style. They each wore hand crafted hats embellished with feathers and flowers. Very creative and chic!


Christmas in November!

It seems every year Christmas comes earlier and earlier. Why is it that people seem to skip over Thanksgiving and go from Halloween to Christmas? As we arrived in New Orleans this year, we were pleasantly surprised to be greeted with the most amazing Christmas d├ęcor at The Roosevelt Hotel. The lobby was covered in lights, crystal, and red and green ornaments!! It really did put me in the holiday mood. The elegance of the entire hotel really put Tamra and I in super redecoration mode and now we cannot wait to get home and do a little redecorating and put up a little holiday cheer! Take a look at the pictures and see if it inspires you…
