Happy Monday guys! Here’s my third and final outfit post of what I wore in New Orleans – a super simple high neck dress with a huge punch of color!
Like I mentioned in my previous posts, New Orleans was very hot and humid. I CANNOT imagine layering or wearing jeans in this kind of weather. So a dress is definitely a must! This high neck dress was great for New Orleans since it was flowy and effortless. However, I realized that polyester, which is what this dress is made of, isn’t ideal for humidity (it sticks to you more), but the looseness was helpful. When traveling here during the summer, I would highly recommend going with pieces that are loose fitting and made of cotton (since it absorbs more sweat).
For reference, I’m wearing an XS in this high neck dress and it fits true to size. I also love that it’s a bright red color. My boyfriend certainly couldn’t miss me wherever we went! Bonus: This dress is currently on sale for less than $30 via Nordstrom! Since this dress is almost sold out, I’m linking other similar high neck dress options here and here (and of course below)!
I wore this outfit while we explored the Bywater District, which is down the Mississippi River from the French Quarter. Although it’s much less frequented than the French Quarter, it’s something you shouldn’t miss! Bywater is an artsy and vibrant area filled with endless colorful homes. We drove around (it was too hot to walk hehe) and spotted some of the coolest colored looking homes like in these photos or check out this Instagram post here. The Joint is also nearby if you’re looking to try some Southern barbeque!
