Parade Bound

by Amanda Bedgood

Mardi Gras mambo worthy

Looking casual, cute and comfy is the great trifecta of Mardi Grass parade dressing. And we've rounded up three looks that will keep you cute enough for all those pics and flexible enough to snatch beads mid-air.

Shoe La La has a bevy of cute comfy shoes (don't fear the hidden wedge sneakers) including these little metallic booties they paired with purple pants and uber trendy little headband. Just add a cross body bag.

As comfy as a t-shirt but with a little bit of bling, we are crushing on the elbow-patch tops over at Herringstone's. Just how to throw in some sequins (so very Mardi Gras) while pulling off something casual.

The gals at Vanessa V. have been stocking the store with a bevy of printed pants (many of which have just a bit of stretch) and these wildly colored ones are perfect for the parade route. And bonus - they'll be what everyone is wearing when temps warm with little tanks.
