There is nothing I love more than planning our itineraries for our trips but I have found that when I plan TOO much I have these expectations for the day and I end up not having as much fun so this time I have been trying to have a rough idea of what we will do and whatever happens, happens. It has been much more fun for me that way. Especially now that Atticus is SO active (like I am talking full on monkey status, NEVER stops moving or causing destruction ha!) we have to cut out a few hours of the day specifically for him to just run and be as crazy as he wants and get all that energy out otherwise he gets too restless. In these pics we had a pretty chill day and just wandered Paris, did some shopping, saw the Arch de Triumph, ate crepes, and then someone we know in Paris came and did Atticus duty after we put him to bed so that David and I could go on a date night 🙂
I wore this Erdem dress from Neiman Marcus which is not maternity but happens to work perfectly with a bump. I absolutely love this dress so much! I wore it with a red lip and since this dress is definitely a statement piece I wore a cardigan over it for some of the day to make it more casual. The neutral flats I am wearing from Neiman Marcus also help to keep it more simple. A lot of you have noted that you wish you could pull off statement pieces more and I think adding a simple piece in the mix (like my cardigan) definitely helps to tone down the look and you can ease into the whole statement wearing. I also think it is fun to add a statement lip! Even if Atticus ends up smearing it 90 times in a day, I love a good red lip and as of late even more paired with some specs!
More statement pieces from Neiman Marcus that I love…..
