WHAT I WORE: A Day in Louisiana

Thursday, May 26, 2011





Ensemble
Blazer: Old Navy
Bowtop: H&M
Belt: New York & Company
Pants: New York & Company
Earrings: Aldo Accessories
Black Pumps: Connie (Famous Footwear)

So on Monday when I was supposed to fly from Pittsburgh back home to Houston, I had to make a last minute detour to New Orleans for a critical business meeting. Needless to say traveling with a week and half worth of luggage for 3 flights on Monday was a pain in the butt, and I knew I wouldn't have anytime to change from the time I got off my flight on Monday in Nola till the meeting. So bright and early Monday morning at 3:30 am I put this outfit on, and didn't change out of it until 9pm when I finally got back to Houston! It was a long day...

Ok back to the outfit. I really loved the colors of this outfit. The top and the Blazer are new purchases bought while I was up North. Though from different stores, I knew immediately that I wanted to wear them together. I've had no luck finding reasonably priced bright colored blazers that fit me well, so now I just buy other interesting color blazers, and I loved this one. I probably would have wore a light toned shoe, but my nude pumps I had to ship home to Houston so that my checked bag wasn't overweight, and all I had were black pumps...oh well...the next time! It was also very windy for these pictures, so don't mind my crazy hair!

  2. The outfit is absolutely darling! I wish I had the courage to wear white pants because I am quite fascinated by them. I am also jealous that that ON jacket worked on you. I tried it on and the fit was so strange on me :-)

  7. @Economy of Style I would like to have a more fitted pair, these are a little too big for me, and I usually use them for casual wear, but last minute business trips! Yea this blazer does a slight weird thing in the arms, but I loved it too much to say no! HAHA

    I've never been in Louisiana, never been in Houston as well. I have travelled the US a lot but never had the chance to go to these places but hopefully next year I'll do that!
