Vacation Style Round Up

So, I basically planned my outfits for my trip to New Orleans and Destin waaaay in advance. I had to find the perfect pieces for the trip or else I would've been stuck wearing leggings and t-shirts like every other basic chick. ( I can be super basic) I know I typically tag my photos with the brands but sometimes it's difficult to really pinpoint where I got each single piece from - so I'm creating this post to help source each item to make it easier for you to buy.
French Quarter
The first outfit I shared was the day we visited the French quarter. I knew it would be a lot of walking and it would more than likely be HOT. I opted for something casual as well as comfortable for the stroll. The shirt I purchased from our local Forever 21 (duh) I think I paid maybe 19.00 for it? It was soo comfortable and light weight. I loved the bell sleeves- it seemed to make casual not so casual. The shorts...the day before we left- I ran around the mall like a mad woman trying on shorts from every store to try and find the perfect pair. I finally settled on the pair shown from H&M- I think they were 25.00? Talk about comfort... they are high waisted but didn't ride up - probably my favorite pair of shorts I own. The sandals are from Zara- I saw these online and because they are velvet- I knew I had to have them. These were not only cute but also functional and seemed to go with everything. My bag- this is my dream bag from Zara that I asked someone to buy me in an earlier post... and Chris ended up buying it for me because I was so obsessed and honestly- I don't own that many bags... just shoes...
Garden District
For the Garden District- I knew I wanted to take a blog post photo so I wanted something colorful that reminded me of vacation and that I could wear over and over again- in comes this romper from Zara. It's like a mullet...the front is a dress while the back is considerably a romper. I love the detail with the side cutouts and the ruffles on the shoulders. This is one of my favorite go-tos from here on out. I wore this look with the same sandals from Zara for comfort- however it would look killer with my chunky heels. I also carried my Zara bag with this look.

This was actually our last day in New Orleans and I knew I would be spending the next 4 hours in the car so I opted for something super comfortable. Of course I'm wearing the same shorts from H&M but also this striped top from Forever21- I loved how light and airy this top was and it was super comfortable! Also paired with same sandals and bag- see, they go with EVERYTHING!

Dinner in Destin
So before heading home- Chris and I wanted to stop in Destin to hang out around the beautiful beaches there. We weren't ready for reality yet. I saved this number for this occasion as it truly reminds me of vacation style. I purchased this dress/romper at Marshalls a few months back- although I'm certain they still have this in stock in some stores. It's actually a hidden romper but I love the slits and the peek-a-boo affect that it gives. It's casual but super elegant at the same time. You could pair this with heels or flats- I opted for my lace up heels from Forever21- by the way which are super comfortable to walk in- they took on 2 miles in New Orleans... I paired this look with a cute little clutch that I purchased while volunteering at our local Junior League Thrift Shop- I paid 1.00...what a steal!

Beach Day
So the last look of vacation was the beach day. We had 4 more hours of driving until we finally arrived back in Gainesville- so I opted for comfy. I bought this tank a few months back from Target in the "Who What Wear" collection. I love this top- you can mix it up -layer it or wear it as is. I paired it with my highrise H&M shorts, Zara bag and my sandals from Saks- these are the Saks brand but I bought them last summer. 

If you have any questions about any of my other outfits- reach out to me! I'm always happy to spill my secrets of where I shop! You can always shop directly at the store to see if the items are actually in stock- sometimes they aren't always available online.(PS this is not paid- I just really love finding pretty clothes and sharing them with you! )
