Dress UpI'll Follow You Anywhere

So I already published the BIGGEST NOLA GUIDE EVER, but believe it or not, there are still a few more posts to come. One of the restaurants in my guide was so special that I figured it was owed an entire post of its own.

Pastel people, meet Brennan’s, one of the pinkest and prettiest places I’ve ever been! I noticed the cotton-candy pink exterior on our first walk through the French Quarter on day one, and without even glancing at the menu I knew we had to go in – it was love at first sight!

A few days later we returned for brunch and explored the space itself, a wonderful collection of whimsical rooms filled with my favourite shades of green, pink and peach. There were hand-painted oyster dishes on the walls, glass lined with drawings of tropical birds, gorgeous tiled tables and a courtyard complete with pink flowers and a turtle fountain! It seemed never ending as I explored room to room, and even the bath room was what dreams are made of.

In my star spangled romper and pink sunnies I couldn’t have felt more at home, and if you love pink, you’ll fit right in too!

Unless you’ve been living in a colourless hole without Instagram for the past couple years you’ve likely seen photos taken at “That Pink Wall”. Honestly I’m not sure how I’ve missed this expansive structure in past visits, but this time around we saw it from a mile away.

Funnily enough, the wall lived up to its popular reputation- we were flanked by bloggers and photographers on either side doing exactly what we were, and it was pretty fun to watch other people work. Now if only we could get someone to paint an entire building hot pink here in Toronto… See you there?

The new year is all about new traditions, so we thought it was about time to introduce some fun new ideas here at RAOP. We fall for countless products and pieces over the course of a year, but some really stand out above and beyond others. Whether it be a beautifully handcrafted, locally-made backpack, or crazy glittery rings that match every manicure, we can’t help but pick favourites, and to bring 2015 to an end we decided it would be fun to get all of them together in one “best of 2015” styled lookbook.

Ladies, gentleman, kittens, and everyone in between- we give you our 2015 RAOP picks!
