Today we’re arriving in New Orleans and while I’ve already had the chance to visit the city (the pictures above left are from my first trip a couple of years ago) it will be the boy’s first visit there and I’m thrilled to get to experience it with him this time.  Between the architecture, history, and general prohibition vibe (where else can you sip absinthe at 9 am?) it’s a place completely unique to itself.  I’ve packed a mauve lace shift dress to recreate the Daisy Buchanan (a la Carey Mulligan) look above.  Stay tuned for more from NoLa and be sure to follow me on instagram for updates along the way!

Tomorrow morning we’ll be headed the way of the Mississippi, from Nashville down to New Orleans.  Here’s a little playlist to match the mood.  And how good are those campaign shots from the latest Scotch & Soda Collection?  Rockabilly done right.

Listen here!

I’ve been excited for the chance to stop in Nashville for months now.  Aside from being a country music fan, the city just seems to exude such an easy confidence.  When packing, I stuck closely to the 3 Nashville classics: Denim, Leather and Boots.  Luckily all three happen to be huge for Fall, so whether or not you get the chance to swing through Music City, I think the above would apply.  For the office, go understated and streamlined (just a touch of leather will do here).  For the weekend, go lived in and comfortable (those Madewell fringe booties had me at hello).  And for a night out, go all out in a flirty mix of prints.  Cover up on top so that your legs can do the talking, and of course – be sure to choose boots that were made for walking (I couldn’t help myself…).  

(Denim: Theory Office; J.Crew Night Out; AE Weekend)
(Leather: Ann Taylor Office; NastyGal Night Out; Urban Outfitters Weekend)
(Boots: Aldo Office; Shoemint Night Out; Madewell Weekend)
