On this past Sunday, I embarked on a 3-week journey to the great city of Los Angeles! To say I was super excited is an understatement. I must admit, so far there hasn’t been anything about this city that I do not like. The people have been awesome, sightseeing has been fun, and the food has been surprisingly amazing. It’s weird, there is something about LA’s vibe that is very reminiscent of NOLA’s. Seriously. The two cities oddly have a lot of things in common.

Since I knew I was heading to LA, I wanted the essence of this photoshoot to combine the beauty of NOLA and the carefree attitude of LA. Robert Charles, New Orleans-Based designer, truly understood that vision. Much like the city of Los Angeles, this flowy ensemble gives off such a bohemian vibe. Yet the background of this photoshoot is one of New Orleans most famed and serene areas.

I must say, I am truly enjoying exploring this beautiful city. I’m looking forward to taking in all of the eclectic culture LA has to offer. I know this trip will be one for the books, and I can not wait to tell you guys all about it.

Be sure to continue to visit DEVandtheCITY to stay updated on all of my LA adventures!
