Last week I found myself in New Orleans, smack dab in the middle of the week, on the coldest day ever. Not really the coldest day ever, but every time I stepped foot outside it certainly felt like it.
I was excited originally for the cold weather because even though I am a southern girl I always enjoy the cold when it makes it way down south. It means an opportunity to wear coats, and scarves, and gloves, and all other good things.
I had planned out my outfit. New red shoes with my warmest coat. My lovely purple coat. And layers. Lots of layers underneath.
I woke up on the morning of the New Orleans day with a cold. Blerg. For some reason I feel like that needs to be said for this post. Taking these pictures was a wee bit ridiculous because I was being a wee bit ridiculous.
Aside for my general awkwardness in these pictures, I really do love this outfit. I have always enjoyed the color combination of red and purple and I especially love it here with the texture and print element thrown in.
Also, I am taking suggestions on how to un-awkwardly grow out bangs.
