I recently took a trip to New Orleans for one of my best friend's weddings, and (oh my!) I adore that city! We flew into Dallas, hopped in my parents' motorhome, and went on a road trip adventure to New Orleans. On the way, we stopped at Caddo Lake for a few nights - but we'll get to that in another post!

Once we arrived in New Orleans, the first thing on our to-do list was to see the Tree of Life. This knobby and droopy oak tree is absolutely massive and believed to be 100 to 500 years old! I just love how mysterious and beautiful it is, especially when lit with the last light of the setting sun. I definitely recommend visiting the tree and the park it's in (Audubon Park). 

To compliment the tree's mystery, I wanted to go with an elegant and romantic look - so I wore that stunning cobalt blue dress from Haute Rogue and shiny jewels by Eliza Designs LA. Not gonna lie, I felt like a princess in this shoot! The breeze was blowing both the dress and my hair just right, the temperature was a perfect-70-degrees, and I was surrounded by beauty. I don't think the conditions could have been any better - but I guess that's what Spring brings in the bayou!
