Easter is the unofficial official start of spring party season, meaning it’s our time to finally shed heavy layers for a light and airy wardrobe! So, let’s get our fun and sophisticated fashion out of our closets! Ready, set, go…!
Everything in New Orleans is a good idea. Bijou temple-type cottages and lyric cathedrals side by side. Houses and mansions, structures of wild grace. Italianate, Gothic, Romanesque, Greek Revival standing in a long line in the rain. Roman Catholic art. Sweeping front porches, turrets, cast-iron balconies, colonnades- 30-foot columns, gloriously beautiful- double pitched roofs, all the architecture of the whole wide world and it doesn’t move.
– Bob Dylan, Chronicles, Vol. 1, 2004
Hello from New Orleans! I have completely fallen in love with this city! New Orleans is unlike any city I have been in the States. Its cultural diversity is woven into the food, the music, the architecture , etc. It really is a sensory experience! I cannot help but be in awe as I am walking through the streets of the French Quarter…it all inspires me so much!
PS: Be sure to visit again this week for more outfit, architecture, and food pictures that showcase New Orleans’ beauty.
As always, thanks much for reading & have a lovely day!

May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day. May songbirds serenade you every step along the way. May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that’s always blue. And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.

Happy Fri-Yay, lovelies! I’m loving this peachy, half-sleeve coat from Choies. It’s so versatile, and just so perfect for spring – wouldn’t you agree? I’ve paired mine with a pair of skinny, ripped denim (lately I’ve been obsessing over ripped denim if you haven’t noticed), and my “it” handbag for this season: My hot pink handbag from Kate Spade. I found it at Marshalls when I decided to pay them a visit during my lunch break from work. As always, I strolled around the store while sipping on my coffee, and there she was…A bright pink beauty – just sitting there all by herself – literally just waiting for me to pick her up, and so I did. Isn’t she a beauty?
Also, I’m SO excited to share a sneak peek of my Tassel Bead Bracelet Collection coming out June 1st, 2015 with YOU! Each bead bracelet is handmade by me, and even comes with little “Made With Love” tags. I cannot wait to share more designs from my Tassel Bead Bracelet Collection with you within the next couple of weeks – but until then mark your calendars for June 1st, 2015!
As always, thanks much for reading & have a wonderful weekend!

Now back to eShakti…
eShakti is known for their customizations to make sure that all of their clothes fit you perfectly. You send in your measurements and preferences, etc. et voila! Your customized clothing item will arrive at your door! I just love them because this company calls on all women of all shapes and sizes since they will design any piece to your specific measurements. You can even alter necklines and sleeve types to fit your liking.
I’m wearing their Stretch Twill Ankle Pants which are so perfect for work, and since Spring has officially arrived in Chicago I added some pastel colors to my outfit.
As always, thanks much for reading & have a fabulous weekend!
