poncho + beanie obsession

I’m sharing the details from a little getaway that the hubby and I had back in the beginning of December. We stayed at the International House Hotel in New Orleans. If you are ever in the area, this hotel is a wonderful choice for your home away from home getaway. We love the location and design of this hotel {two pictures below are captured in the foyer area}. I’m kind of picky about hotels and about restaurants. So bratty.. I know, but I blame it on my hubby who always likes to surprise me with the best of the best.

We also dined at a fabulous restaurant called Josephine Estelle. Y’all, I fell in love with the decor, the architetural design, the atmosphere and of course, the divine food. We ordered so much food that I can’t remember exactly what we ate, BUT it was magnificent. It’s Italian cuisine with the flavors of the American south. You must try it out when you visit Nola.

Onto my obsession with beanies, I would rock them everyday with zero regrets if our weather wasn’t so crazy here. They make me feel like a kid again.. and they are fabulous on dirty hair days. That’s really why I love hats #ikidnot. My exact beanie was a gift from my bestie last year. But, I found some very similar options for ya.

  • Oh I love it! I would so be in a poncho everyday in winter if I lived somewhere it was cold. It’s like walking outside in a cozy blanket, only socially acceptable 😉
