Magazine Street happens to be one of my new favorite places in New Orleans. Not only is the Whole Foods there (which I gravitate towards for each meal!), but there is a treasure trove of local shops. I visited Buffalo Exchange, Lili (a great little vintage dress boutique), a couple mid-century modern antique stores, and just a few local decor shops. This all happened on my run I took after work and was able to pop into each store for a break from the afternoon heat!
Next, I hopped the street car down to the French Quarter to take in the atmosphere and people of New Orleans. This was my first adventure on a street car and I can’t imagine riding the car when it’s much hotter (it was 90 today)! Though it was a beautiful stroll down to Canal St., the lack of circulating air resulted in a bit of nausea and made me wish I had hopped a cab. Yuck. Despite this, I was able to get a few pictures of the French Quarter and the River Market. So Enjoy!
