February means it’s officially Mardi Gras month, so Haute Off the Rack and I wanted to throw a Mardi Gras morning breakfast like no other! (King cake and coffee is definitely the breakfast of champions in my humble opinion.) We are sharing the cutest Mardi Gras coffee mugs and gold foil tees while even re-wearing some holiday sparkle! See how in today’s full post!

Mardi Gras is one of those times where you can let conventional outfits fly out the window. When you’re out on the parade route, you will see people wearing ALL types of crazy things, so I find it totally acceptable to wear something fun like sequins. This was ultimately my chance to re-wear a pair of black sequin leggings from the holidays, and they were perfect with my new baseball tee from Simply Chic!

This tee designed by Rachael Hansil features gold script “Laissez les bon temps rouler” meaning “let the good times roll!” The shirts are only $20 and can be ordered or picked up from either the Bossier or Mandeville store locations. They were selling super fast, so you will need to call Simply Chic to see if they have sizes still in stock at either store! Jenn wore her Elizabeth Chronicles tee that says “I’m on the King Cake Diet.” (If only that were a real thing.) You can see the other Mardi Gras tee designs available on their online shop!

But the party doesn’t stop here! You will notice the cutest little car cart in the background of our photos that holds all or our ingredients for the perfect Mardi Gras Bloody Mary. That post will be coming up later this week!

    Summer party ideas for your special event planning decor can be fast, easy and inexpensive. Instead of using a tea-light with your glass votive, drop a Cymbidium orchid in the glass instead. Or place an orchid weighted down with water and colored glass beads in a small glass vase.
