Fashionable Frolic- A fun day at Longue Vue Gardens

The weather in southern Louisiana has been so lovely that we practically had to hold an outdoor event for our last Southern Fashion Bloggers meetup.  We couldn’t have asked for better weather and my only regret was not packing a picnic lunch!

Having grown up in Louisiana I’m no stranger to historic homes. Ever since I was a kid I’ve been touring grand old mansions, stately antebellum plantations and other buildings with historical interest. The best part of living in the South are all of the beautiful remnants of such amazing architecture.

Beautiful flowers everywhere

Longue Vue is located in Old Metairie, a quick 10 minute drive from New Orleans depending on where y’at.  It is definitely worth the short drive and a lovely, relaxing way to spend a few hours or an entire day.
