Hey y'all! For today's post I'm throwing it back to a coupe weeks ago during Art For Art's Sake - an event held the first Saturday of October in New Orleans that takes place throughout the Warehouse Arts District and all along Magazine St. 

Art galleries, various boutiques, and shops along Magazine stay open late and usually serve food/drinks and offer shopping specials. Think of it as a giant block party. This year was my first time going and I really enjoyed it! The weather was absolutely perfect and I brought my Dad and sister/blog photographer along with me. Way too much fun.

The first stop was one of my favorite accessory boutiques, Trendz.  My friend/owner Jenny and her Mom track down the trendiest and fashion-forward items to feature in their store and everything is very reasonably priced. I'm (obviously) a hopeless addict. My most recent purchase was the gorgeous fringe purse I'm wearing in the pic above. After that we headed to a few art galleries and a really cool antique shop I'd been dying to check out, Right before we walked in I spotted Bryan Cranston walking by with his wife!! I didn't get a picture with him but but it was so cool! 

I can't wait til next year! In the mean time, I'll be enjoying this fantastic fall weather.

I'm obsessed with these jeans. Anyone who knows me knows that I can't resist a great looking pair of skinny jeans. (especially ones with fantastic details) I love the unexpected amount of edge they add to an outfit. For this look I styled them with a basic loose-fitting white tank, this gorgeous bib-necklace, and beige ankle boots.  I'm really loving statement accessories this Fall! 

Sorry for the lack of posts recently, this little blog is undergoing some site changes (shhh!) Stay tuned! xo
