When did I do the day four outfit of the day? A month ago? Come, on. Well, late is better than never, I suppose.
To remind you all, I am taking on my Paris trip bit by bit, starting with outfit posts, then moving to all around general stuff, and finishing with tips for traveling with toddlers. Knowing my rate of success, I will get around to the "tips for traveling with toddlers" post on our anniversary of actually traveling to Paris. LOL.
Okay, to re-cap...here is outfit Day One...outfit Day Two...outfit Day Three...outfit Day Four.
And outfit Day Five.
Top: J. Crew Suzannah Liberty Print Blouse, Size medium. This was a sample from 2007, although it is similar to the blouse that they sold in the fall of that same year, this one has slight differences in construction from the retail version. I am glad I went with the medium as this was cut a bit closer, and as timing had it, I needed the extra room in the waist. :) Go, baby belly!
Vest: J. Crew Jackie top, size small. Do you all buy the Jackie tops only to use as vests? I never wear mine on their own, I far prefer them with button-downs.
Skirt: Gap Maternity, size 8. This is way too big and by the end of the day, it looked like I was wearing a skirt four sizes too big for me. (This puppy stretches. To say the least.)
Tights: Walmart George Brand. I wear my George Brand control top tights constantly and they have not ever let me down, I have had the above pair for over three years. Get thee to a Walmart for some $5.50 tights if you need some good ones. Whilst in Mississippi, I bought the local store out of their Size Cs...I bought them in brown marl, black knit herringbone, grey marl, and a couple of opaque pairs.
Shoes: J. Crew Collection Lula Snakeskin Ballet Flats. The love. These aren't awesome for walking but they are certainly good enough if you don't go all crazy and wear them for a six mile trek. I only did about four that day, so my tootsies survived.
CW is in a mix of Boden, Target, and some boutique-y brand.
in-depth review of it at True Crew Love.
The background is the Eiffel Tower. We have more shots from that day, but I will publish those in the general "look at how awesome Paris can be" photos post.
Both of my kids LOVED the Eiffel Tower and now, whenever they see a photo or film of it, shout really loudly, "look MOMMA...the Eiffel Tower!!!"
Top: J. Crew Tissue Turtleneck, Size Medium. From a while ago and I still wear it, all the time. Great versatile basic.
Skirt: J. Crew Collection Floral Long Swing Skirt, Size 8. It's my header skirt! :) Cannot even think about wearing this one now...waist is way too tiny to fit over my baby belly now. It barely did up that night for that matter.
Shoes: Clarks Artisan aka "most comfortable black heels ever," size 9.5. Bought them for nada at the local Rugged Wearhouse.
Necklace: J. Crew Double Strand Frog Necklace. Also a perennial favorite from the Paris Catalog. I double looped it for a different look...I quite like it like that...
Well I guess that's it for now. Hope your Friday is great. :)
