New Orleans has long been a favorite travel destination of mine; between the culture, architecture and food it’s unlike most places I travel to (see beachy hangout). If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat then you may have already caught on that I was supposed to be going to NOLA last Monday but postponed my trip due to the weather.
The weather is still iffy/spotty; there’s definitely still rain in the forecast but it’s Spring and that’s kind of to be expected, right? If you’ve never been to New Orleans in the Spring, think Miami minus the beach. It’s very humid and muggy with scattered showers and then sunshine. Dressing in lightweight clothing is imperative, a nice sundress or romper will be key. For the most part everyone is dressed fairly casual but you do come across the sporadic seersucker suited gentleman accompanying his southern belle donned in the sweetest ladylike getup. Like I said though, very sporadic.
I hope this packing guide helps you prepare for a trip to New Orleans!
Do you have any upcoming travel plans?
