How lucky am I to have a lovely and talented friend like Emma who's willing to indulge me and document my little Rochester adventures? I've been meaning to post these photos (many of which were taken by Emma) for quite a while now, but it's been hard to muster up the energy to edit them. That might sound silly, but it really does require energy and concentration, both of which I'm usually lacking after a long day. But since I'm headed off to New Orleans with Ashley today(!!!), I thought it was the perfect time to debut this fantastic NOLA-themed dress from Trashy Diva.

This was actually my first Annette dress after purchasing one years ago and returning it (which I now regret because it's now a highly coveted design). As you all know, I love a good novelty print... but I was initially worried that this might be a little much. I actually ended up loving it in person and also love that the skirt provides a bit more *poof* than most of Trashy Diva's designs. My one regret with this dress is that I didn't size up. It zips, but it's definitely a bit tighter than I'd like. (I guess one option would be to lose a bit of my own *poof*, which I'm trying to do anyway.) Lesson learned: if you're between sizes, keep in mind that cotton voile doesn't provide stretch when ordering!

I'm so excited to go on this vacation with Ashley and I can't wait to do lots of shopping – mostly at TD! We're both eager to try on styles we're usually too afraid to try out when we order online. Basically, we planned our entire trip around shopping and food. If you want to live vicariously, keep an eye on our Instagram feeds! I'm sure we'll be updating throughout our time in NOLA.
