The Window Shopper goes to NOLA

collage of looks

Hi lovely luvvies. My name is Payton and I am The Window Shopper. I am thrilled to contribute to #fashionfriday in Darcy’s absence. She and I have collaborated several times but I’ve never actually had the pleasure of posting on Hello Luvvy directly…until today!

At this moment, I am in New Orleans for the wedding celebration of a very dear friend. We met in college at Tulane and she’s one of those effortlessly cool people that everyone wants to be around. NOLA is her very favorite place to be and she just moved back, so it’s sure to be quite the affair.

Every time my hubby & I go to New Orleans, we inevitably try to pack in gobs of activities in a short time. This time is no different, probably more hectic than usual! There are four events surrounding the wedding weekend that I will be attending. Believe it or not, I’m not the best packer. I tend to bring way too much and regret all of my choices upon arrival. Since I knew that this post would coincide with the NOLA getaway/wedding, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to nail down outfit plans beforehand. {What a novel idea!}

So, luvvies, just for you (and for the sanity of my sweet husband) I have laid out exactly what I will be wearing at each of the parties – from the shoes to the accessories to the toppers. I found that I actually enjoy being prepared!
