Oui Oui Paris: June 14th, 2012

Event: Dinner in Chicago

Outfit: Dress: The Limited; Belt: JCrew Factory; Sandals: Guess via DSW; Earrings: Urban Outfitters; Bracelets: gifts from Firenze, etc; Bag: gift, B&N

This does seem to be my go-to summer dress, three years running. I pretty much just couldn’t wait to bust out the neon belt again, plus the temperatures were looking high, and this dress is good for travel. Annnnnnnd OUTFIT.

I’ve been looking forward to this night ever since Laura offered up her apartment’s rooftop for a night of eating & Paris planning. Haley’s words were so fitting: This will be like an episode of Sex and the City:  Four twentysomethings plan their summer trip to Paris on the rooftop of a Chicago high-rise.  (Who are we?!)

And so it was. Laura made DELICIOUS food (salad, gourmet mac ‘n’ cheese) and we brought quite a few bottles o’ vino with us up to the rooftop for a dinner during which we felt more and more confident that we’ll have a wonderful week in Paris. Our priorities all seem to be right in line (champagne in the Tour Eiffel, minimal museum visits, flea markets, lots of cafes/people watching/croissants, a couple day trips), and we’re comfortable separating during the day as needed. Can’t wait for Euro Trip 2012! Only 2 of us are single on this trip, so it’s clearly not a requirement, but it does feel like a silver-lining moment for me; wasn’t really picturing 11 days with girlfriends in Europe as a newlywed. Embracing great experiences with wonderful people.
