Double Denim Days

Are there rules to the 'Canadian tuxedo'? Some say it’s simple: don’t wear it. Denim on denim is tacky. Some say it should be the same wash of denim, which I generally agree with. Well, today I followed neither of those rules, and I’d say I’m still satisfied--I guess there’s something to be said about “rules” in fashion?

Birthday Trip Photo Diary Pt 2: New Orleans • 05/02-05/10

It should come as no surprise that my favorite part of my birthday trip was visiting New Orleans. This was my first time there which was a little intimidating, but...it made turning 24 all the more special.

I'm a huge lover of food and more importantly getting to try new food--who isn't? So I made a point of bookmarking and consuming some standout spots. Lunch at Lil Dizzy's Cafe in historic Tremé, beignets at Café Du Monde, shrimp po'boys! Plus all the wild activity and tourist traps I and my best friend Nailah could get ourselves into.

(Like for example...the swamp tour? Home of maaany alligators? Yeah. Did that.)

Birthday Trip Photo Diary Pt 1: Atlanta • 05/02-05/10

Happy belated birthday to me!
This year I wanted to do something special to me--travel. It's been a minute since I've had an extended travel vacation so I was ready-ready. I decided to make this a double trip: first Atlanta then New Orleans. I've been to Atlanta quite a few times now; I actually spent my 21st birthday there in 2016, too. So I was excited to go back and especially to attend the Shaky Knees Festival. Some of my favorite bands, from The Dandy Warhols to Tears For Fears to Tame Impala, played over a three day span in Atlanta's Central Park. Tame Impala closed on the final night of the festival, with mesmerizing visuals and true-to-recording sound quality.

Nothing beat getting to see some of my favorite musicians, visiting family, and of course that warm weather.
