At Encircled, our designs are built for both travel + life.

However, we love travel and want to encourage women to wander, explore and learn. Last year, we introduced a series called the Traveling Cardi.  This year, we continue the series by focusing on Travel Muses.

Women who love the travel, and traverse the world with their Chrysalis Cardis in tow. These are the wanderlusters. The adventurers. And we are sharing their stories.

Our first Travel Muse who we will follow for the next few weeks is Kirsten.

 

In the words of Kirsten on her journey to New Orleans,

Have you been to New Orleans? If you answered no… you NEED to put it on your list!

I recently went for my first time… during Mardis Gras!

I didn’t know what to expect and to be honest, I thought it might actually be a bit too crazy for my liking.

I WAS DEAD WRONG! It is now one of my favorite cities in America.

It is dripping with culture and I took part in the Mardi Gras festivities with my friends who live there, so I got a local experience not a touristy one.

And yes… I did head to Bourbon Street and the French Quarter and while it was great (and pretty nuts!) , I spent most my time there outside of this area and was continually blown away by this incredible city.

I did go to Café du Monde though for the beignets… which were pretty amazing.New Orleans Travel Essentials. Encircled creates versatile minimalist clothes with the everyday traveler in mind. Each piece is Made in Canada, out of sustainable, and eco friendly materials.

It was a cold night… and I wore my Chrysalis Cardi… needless to say I left with powdered sugar all over it!

Well worth it though! And New Orleans… I will definitely be back!
