Sunday in New Orleans

After a rather lazy morning and breakfast in bed we spent the afternoon wandering around the beautiful French Quarter, dipping in and out of shops and taking endless photos DSCN0090 DSCN0147 DSCN0095 DSCN0096 DSCN0100 Being a lover of all things chilli, I couldn’t resist popping in here. DSCN0101 DSCN0102 DSCN0103 DSCN0104 DSCN0105 DSCN0106 There are lovely antique shops dotted around and I totally fell in love with these, they’re ship decanters, designed to hold the bottles in place on the high seas. Not that I spend much time at sea but I think I’m going to have to get my paws on a set all the same.DSCN0098 DSCN0107 I was also quite a fan of this table and chairs but decided it would be fairly tricky to fit inside my suitcase. Ah well, maybe one day when I have that French château to furnish…. DSCN0113DSCN0108 DSCN0109 My shoes are from here: http://www.russellandbromley.co.uk/dress-flats/charming/invt/122567

Clutch was a birthday pressie from here: http://www.whistles.com/women/accessories/bags/medium-shiny-croc-clutch.html?dwvar_medium-shiny-croc-clutch_color=White#start=1

Dress from next but I can’t seem to find it online anymore so here’s an alternative: http://www.asos.com/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=3825168

I love the mix of people here, everyone is totally free to be themselves, check out this dapper gent.

DSCN0112 One of the things I adored as we ambled around were the seemingly endless balconies overflowing with flowers, it’s my absolute dream to have one like this one day. Imagine spending your mornings curled up in the sun with a cup of tea, surrounded by tumbling flowers. Absolute heaven. DSCN0141 DSCN0139 DSCN0133 DSCN0126 I have a bit of a thing for architecture, I can spend days wandering around cities dreaming what it would be like to live in each place and of the people that already do. I love history and always get drawn to old buildings, intrigued by the stories they could tell. DSCN0135 DSCN0143 DSCN0127 DSCN0121 DSCN0142 DSCN0140

 

On our walk back to the hotel we came across these guys playing in a square. They were such great musicians and the atmosphere was amazing, so entirely New Orleans and the perfect end to the afternoon.
