OOTD: Mardi Gras 2023

Today is officially the last day of Mardi Gras season. Even though I wasn’t able to visit New Orleans this year to celebrate, I had the opportunity to ritualize this occasion. Every season I, of course, make a King cake to share with my friends and family. (See my King cake recipe here). Other years, I have made some other Mardi Gras treats as well as thrown a party.

Mardi Gras season not only represents a time to eat good food and thoroughly rejoice, it also represents the beginning of Lent season. Lent season is a time of reflection and sacrifice prior to Resurrection Sunday. This year since I’m still in recovery from my surgery I decided to keep it low key but fashionable. I still haven’t decided on what I’m giving up this Lent season, but I’m definitely not sacrificing fashion.

See what I wore for Mardi Gras below.
