Earlier this week, vacation kicked off right with a day in New Orleans before road tripping over to the beach. It was my first time to the French Quarter, so we had an authentic lunch of a muffaletta and a Pimm’s Cup right where it originated. I jazzed up breezy basics with layered gold jewelry and a lace up sandal. At the beach, we’ve fallen into a relaxing routine of strolling for morning coffee, heading to the beach and finishing the days at the beautifully designed pool. Alys Beach has me now!
