on instagram lately / 14

feb16-instaa short & sweet post today – last month in new orleans and there was still so much to do… at the same time so busy organizing, packing, and making sure the move runs smoothly (for the sake of tantrums). will be taking it easy these following weeks, i might’ve learned a few things from our last move. also, julia is more aware of what is going on, so hopefully that’ll help. will miss nola and the friendliest people we met during these last few months. we had a short stay but new orleans is indeed a very special city and will always have a place in our hearts.

ps – i’ll be sharing a few pictures from our last days in the city, in the mean time click here for all new orleans posts so far.

krewe du optic / new orleans

krewe-du-optic-by-myseastory-2during our last weeks in new orleans we tried to soak up as much time as we could around town, that meant juggling ‘julia time’ with ‘me time’ :) and it meant fitting in a little bit of local shopping too!

so on our way to some exploring we made a pit stop at krewe du optic – a new orleans based eyewear company that i found about through instagram.

amongst quaint streets and colorful verandas the store has a real clean look, with a little coffee shop by merchant and a back yard, it almost felt like a little oasis in the heart of the french quarter.


needless to say i loved most of them, so hard to chose!! i’m usually indecisive, and in regards to eyewear almost always go for brown frames – but hannah was super friendly and helpful in picking out a new pair of sunnies that would be original and different yet still a little traditional – like the ones julia’s wearing below?krewe-du-optic-by-myseastory-1
