What I Wore Wednesday Honeymoon Edition!

So it's a sad day.
In light our successful thus far
{Link Up Challenge #2 tomorrow - see prompt at bottom}
I was super amped to do a 
What I Wore as a Savvy Business Woman Edition,
but alas,
since that full time job is non-existent in these parts
{but the "mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy" career is in full swing},
I have not one photo of me looking all sexy and knowledgeable in a pencil skirt and heels.

So then I thought, 
Okay, Nicole, there's got to be at least ONE picture in here somewhere...what about all those formal meetings you attended while in sorority?
But still, none.

The good news is that all that meandering forced me to go through my honeymoon pictures once again, because I love them, and I decided to show those babies.
{Also, I was particularly horrible at taking pictures this week, even though I got dressed in those jeans What?! I swear!}
{Are we sick of hearing about the jeans?}

Let's get rollin'.
{Ahh, to get dolled up}

This was the night we thought we were going wine tasting, but instead, got lost in Paris.
Not a bad problem to have, eh?

Dress: Forever 21 - old as all old

Tights: reminiscent of the ole' dance days

Heels: Love D

{The catacombs!}

Okay, I have a confession to make.
I was hungover.
In Paris.
I know, I know....I should be burned at the stake.
But the good news was, this picture was taken post-hangover remedies, so I felt slightly better.

Shirt: Forever 21

Purse: Christmas present from my sister

Jeans: H&M

{The alleged culprit for said hangover}

There I was the night before the catacombs day, which also just so happened to be the "Notre Dame" AND "The Louvre" day.
I know, kill me.
But guess what?
I had a good time with my man that night, and was stoked to have hailed a MERCEDES as a cab home.
So all in all, no feeling bad about that beer those beers.
Just some minor guilt about feeling like poop while staring at the Mona Lisa.
Oh well! At least it was memorable!

Dress: Target maternity {no, I wasn't pregnant. I had no idea I had even bought a maternity dress until I was actually pregnant with Carter, and I looked at the tag and it said "Mossimo Mommy." Weird, huh?}

Beer: delish.

{Ahh, my favorite day}

LOVED this day.
Biking through the Palais de Versailles.

Shirt: given to me by my sister

Leggings: Forever 21

{Our let's not make any plans day}

This was our last day in Paris before heading to Belgium, and it was lovely.
There were no plans on the itinerary, just my man and I perusing through the streets.
We bought a full-on, legitimate picnic basket during said perusing.
Random? Yes. Something we'll keep forever? Definitely.

Shirt: old as all old {I want to say Hollister, but that really categorizes me as an I can still wear my teenage clothes type of woman}

Shorts: TJ Maxx

Shoes: Love D

Scarf: bought in Paris

 {I know, I know}

Okay, I'm having another beer and posing at that same creepy angle, but here's a significantly better picture of that scarf.

{Maria von Trapp!}

Here we were in Brugge, the most picturesque little village one may ever hope to come across.
It was such a sunny, happy, lovely place, that I decided that it deserved a bright yellow, let's-meet-grand-mama-for-scones type dress.
So that's what I did, and it was great.

Dress: JC Pennys? {One of those random finds}

So there you have it!

I'll be linking up here
pleated poppy
