Mardi Gras Inspiration
Today's post is for one of my closest friends who is celebrating her first Mardi Gras as a New Orleans resident tomorrow. I have come to learn from her that there isn't just one night of celebration for this NOLA holiday; parades, festivities, and parties have been happening weeks before Fat Tuesday ever comes around. So in honor of her big night of fun or for anyone else having a Mardi Gras themed party tomorrow, I put together a style board of outfitting for the night. Sequin and sparkled purples, greens, and golds were naturally the colors to turn to for inspiration. I know how hot and muggy the nights can get there so short hemlines and loose tank tops were a must as well as flat shoes or sandals for all the walking you're going to be doing up and down the French Quarter. I also didn't forget to include the must have accessory of the night: beads, a mask, and a tote bag or a "throw bag" as the locals call it is a must, so you have a place to stash all stuff people throw to you from the floats.
