Attending Essence Festival has become an annual tradition for me.
It’s great food, fun, and fellowship. There is so much to do within those three days. So you have to be ready to be mobile and chic.
There is a lot of walking. You may stroll through the convention center to be empowered, down Canal St. to people watch, or through the French Quarters to experience the essence of New Orleans. Regardless of what you do, you have to be adorable doing it.
When I pack for Essence; I like to pack light weight fabrics, cool clothing, and flat shoes because New Orleans is blazing hot in July. The flat shoes are for comfort due to all of the walking I know I will be doing. This look is a perfect example of me being chic in the streets. My sister by love owns a www.tresorcacheboutique.com
I purchased this cute white shoulder less top and distressed denim jeans from her for under $100. My sunglasses are from Clark Atlanta University’s book store for $14.99. I was in line paying for my daughter’s books for school and spotted these cute sunnies. My shoes were purchased on sale for $149.00 from Tory Burch. My crossbody handbag is from Louis Vuitton. It was the perfect 36th birthday gift.
