My husband and I have the tradition of visiting my family on the Gulf Coast for Independence Day. Dating back to 2014, it was the first time my then-boyfriend, now-husband met my parents. It is a holiday that I always look forward to and I am fairly certain that he does too.
We always have a few items on our agenda when we visit and most of them revolve around spending time around the pool and making the perfect margarita. (PSA: purchase your avocados a week prior to ensure ripeness for the inevitable guacamole.) Aside from the pool and the margs, roast beef po-boys from Pirate’s Cove, the Abita Brewery, and New Orleans (in general) are on the to-do list.
Judging by today’s accessories, I might be especially looking forward to our visit this year, particularly our New Orleans day. My sunglasses and necklace both came from NOLA-based companies. Growing up on the Gulf Coast, I did not see the influx of design-based companies coming. I don’t hate it!
