Another amazing few days travelling across the Southern states of the USA. This week I've hit up New Mexico, Texas and Louisiana. I love how each state has its own vibe with different cultures, history and incredible food. 
I travelled on the infamous Route 66 near Sante Fe, New Mexico, visited the Carlsbad Caverns and had a wonderful time exploring the city.
Next, for the 4th of July, we hit up San Antonio, Texas. The city is situated on the banks of the San Antonio river and has been one of my favourite places I've visited so far. The day was ended by watching an impressive display of fireworks and the celebrations in Hemisfair Park. Being in the USA for the 4th was unforgettable!
Along with living in shorts and strappy tops, I've brought out my favourite vintage maxi dress a couple of times on the trip. I did an outfit post in it last summer here
 and I feel like it is a staple summer piece that I'll be wearing for many years to come. I wore the maxi to go on a swamp tour near New Orleans which was so much fun. We saw an amazing variety of wildlife (great alligator pic right?!) and had a tour of the area. New Orleans is an awesome place to visit and I spent the rest of my time there shopping, eating good food and enjoying the 4th of July holiday weekend.
I can't blog without mentioning the great moment for British tennis that took place yesterday with Andy Murray winning Wimbledon. A lot of you might not know but I've been playing tennis since I could practically hold a racket and used to represent my county - so I'm a huge tennis fan. I would have without a doubt been watching in the crowds at Wimbledon over the past week if I hadn't been in the USA. Congrats Andy!!!!
