Wow. What a great trip to New Orleans! We were only there overnight Friday night, but honestly, it was enough. I was impressed with the city (it had been more than 15 years since I was there) and besides accidentally having to walk a block or two on bourbon street, I found it to be clean and everything very “orderly” LOL.
The food was amazing, our hotel was great, and the wedding was so beautiful. I don’t really know the bride or groom, the groom is a friend of my husband’s from high school, so I felt a tiny bit out of place there, but another friend of my husband’s from high school was there with his wife, 19-month old, and his parents, whom I really enjoy spending time with, so it was a little easier to bear. (I’m an extreme introvert IRL…)
The groom is a professional musician in nolo so the music was really fun. They had a string quartet playing during the wedding that played Led Zeppelin while the groomsmen and bridesmaids walked down the aisle and Queen for the bride. How cool is that?? The ceremony was a bit irreverent, but sweet, which seemed in keeping with the style of both the bride and the groom.
I wore my black JP dress and Virginia Johnson shawl and was totally comfortable. Oh, and the Naot pixie sandals were AMAZING. We didn’t walk to the venue but decided to walk back because it was only just over a mile, and I had no problems in the sandals. I was shocked actually, because I thought for sure I’d get a blister or some rubbing somewhere, but no, nothing. And Leo liked them. BONUS 🙂
I really have to work on my airplane outfits though, and might have to pack just a little less light to do it. Both flights I was so cold. I wore jeans, a t-shirt, Organic by John Patrick potato sweater, James Perse jacket and my shawl like a blanket. For shoes, I wore my Nike sneakers with smartwool socks, and my TOES FROZE. My legs were cold, my arms were cold, everything was just COLD. Where are my hot flashes when I need them???
In the name of packing light (lighter than I really need to, honestly), I am usually very spare about what I bring, and if I’m not going to wear it/use it at my destination, it never makes the cut. I am going to rethink that for my next plane trip. I don’t have another airplane trip planned until August – we’re going to Charleston for our anniversary 🙂 – so I have time. Thank goodness. I was so uncomfortable and stressed out on the plane. Literally, being cold is the ONLY thing I pack to try and avoid. I pour so much attention into it and have so much anxiety surrounding it. And then I get cold anyway. Ha.
Are you as strict with your packing as I am? How do you avoid being cold on the plane? or are you one of the lucky ones who just doesn’t get as cold??
