Classic Striped Style for NOLA

One of my great loves in life...traveling. Work, personal or a mix of the two always reinvigorate me and provide such cool experiences along the way. I've been able to travel for work a fair amount this year and I'm always thankful when I look back at the new experiences, stories and people I've encountered on my trips––and who can resist a good photo op? Especially in NOLA.

I've always wanted to go to New Orleans, and recently had the opportunity to check out the city during a work trip. The history, culture and heat factors were definitely something I was prepared for, what I wasn't prepared for is the fuzzy hair I would see as a result. But hey, you win some, you lose some. One thing I was winning at was packing. I managed to pack clothing that suited the swamp-like heat and humidity, and still allowed me to be comfortable throughout the day.

I was able to snap this outfit as we were waiting to eat at The Ruby Slipper (which was super tasty by the way) and I was loving how lightweight the entire look was. The flowy top from Forever 21 and the fun skirt I snagged on Poshmark really helped to combat the humidity.

I'm not sure how many of you shop on sites like Poshmark, eBay and Tradesy, but I've purchased some of my favorite pieces on these sites for a fraction of the cost. I'm all about maximizing my shopping budget so online retailers, coupon codes and deals are my best friend.
