Touring Avery Island

I lived in Louisiana for five years and my husband was born and raised there. It is safe to say I have hit almost all of the touristy spots around the “boot” during my life as a Louisianan. For whatever reason, however, I never toured Avery Island, home to the world’s most renowned hot sauce, TABASCOยฎ! That’s right, the fiery red topping you can always count on to give your food a kick is made, bottled, and shipped to over 180 countries worldwide on this very island.

But there is more to Avery Island than the TABASCOยฎ factory…a tour of Jungle Gardens is a MUST! The 170 acre semitropical landscape exemplifies nature at its finest. Ride along the bayou admiring the Spanish Moss, bamboo, and live alligators. Stop and enjoy the blooming Azaleas, then make your way up the path to a shrine, housing an ancient Buddha. A setting like this calls for one thing: Blog Pics!

How does a California girl dress for a day in the swamp? In lightweight clothing, of course! Living in San Francisco, for the past three years, has turned me into a fair weather snob. It is safe to say that my tolerance for heat and humidity is nonexistent. As demonstrated here and here, I dressed for the tropics, during my Louisiana tour.

I decked out in another two-piece set, but this time, a skirt and top combo from Current Clothing. This look is a knock-off of the popular label, Faithful The Brand. Constructed out of a cotton and gauze blend, this pair was perfect for the swamp-like conditions. I styled the look with a boho tassel necklace, my go-to gladiator sandals, and a black floppy hat. Prepared for the sun to go down, I carried a black fringe jacket just in case.

Add Avery Island to your itinerary during your next trip to Louisiana. In the meantime, shop this outfit at Current Clothing, or text (415-980-4772) to order. A special thanks to my bff, sister, and part-time photographer, Ava Trimble, for capturing the moment.

      It is all so picturesque. No wonder there were so many photographers there with their clients!

      Aw thanks Shell! It is definitely fun shooting on location but a little bit hard to balance the work and fun! I felt like I needed a vacation from my vacation after shooting about 12 look in just a few days. Hope you enjoyed your time off. ๐Ÿ™‚
