I’ve been frantically typing, typing, typing to finish last minute edits on Nightingale all week, which means I’ve been skipping all the fun afternoon activities (Paris Sewer Museum, anyone?) and only emerge from my apartment for meals. Bug is going to do a post for me later this week on Le Grand Metro Ride, the Sewer Museum, and the Notre Dame bell tower, but until then all I’ve got is an outfit post.
Today’s look was inspired by this pin on Pintrest:
This is what I pulled together from my closet. Pretty close, right?
Belt: Banana Republic
Necklace: Banana Republic
Leggings: Wolford Velvet de Luxe 50 in Admiral
8:30am – Roll out of bed
10am – Tidy up house, take a shower, mess around online after Bug and the boys leave for Notre Dame.
11am – Start trying to write the Nightingale dedication and acknowledgement pages.
11:30am – Stare out window, make new playlist, read the news.
12:15pm – Bug and the boys arrive home, frozen and hungry.
12:30pm – Head out to lunch. Tried a Japanese place near our apartment. Super good. Must find the name.
2pm- Drop boys off at home. Bug and I stroll down the street and do a little shopping.
3pm – Return home while Bug does the grocery shopping. Get the boys started on their Anne Frank reports. The Colonel decides he’s going to draw pictures of Napoleon getting “beat by the Russian Team,” followed shortly by, “Marie Antoinette being guillotined.” Consider if this means I’m raising a sociopath. Decide he’s just a fan of history.
4pm -5:30pm – Bug and I try to nail down where we’re going next week. The East Coast is becoming more and more likely, although London is still in the running.
6:30pm – A home cooked dinner, prepared in our mini-kitchen by Bug. Steak haché for two boys, rostisserie chicken for the adults, and a falafel sandwich from the corner shop for Pudge.
8pm – Bedtime for the boys.
Rest of the evening – probably drinks across the street then a movie at home.
And just because I think he’s adorable, here’s The Colonel. He’s taken to dressing French and insists on wearing scarves, button-up shirts and “fancy” clothes.
