Outfit of the Week - Crayons & Europe

Have you ever dressed like a box of crayons? I have. This past weekend. To go eat German food. Makes sense, right? Actually, I blame my outfit on blogging. If it weren't for being inspired by all the other bloggers out there I would definitely just have worn blue jeans with this top. So thanks, guys.

Also, this is quite off topic, but Eric and I are traveling to Europe this summer (Paris, London, Dublin) and I would love any advice! Any travel tips, must-sees, must-eats, etc. Lay it on me!

Top: Loft Outlet (similar
Jeans: NY&CO (similar)
Oxfords: Dolce Vita (via TJ Maxx)
Bracelets: H&M

  1. Ash when you are in Paris go to the Rodan museum. I hated Paris, but this one museum redeemed the whole city for me. Enjoy!

    1. You definitely need to try it! I can't say I'm a huge fan - it's pretty "meat and potatoes," but it's definitely good to try!

  19. Oh gosh.. I LOVE THIS OUTFIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Head over heels, in love!

    As for travel recommendations, I'll ask my aunt! She lives in Paris! ;) Lucky, I know!

    I went once... To Paris and London.

    But it was almost ten years ago and my memory is fuzzy.

    Obviously, going to London, you have to go to at least ONE pub.
    I recommend getting tomato soup ;) Mmmmmmm....
    I know it sounds basic, but from what I remember, it was the best tomato soup ever.

    As for crepes... And chocolates in Paris. That's a gimmie.

    And the Louvre is worth the trip! I'm not a huge artist junkie, but it is so breath taking!

    I'll be back with a list! ;)

  26. So fun that you are planning a European getaway! Here are a few recs

    Paris: Angelina's (http://www.angelina-paris.fr/en/) - it's very close to the Louve and it has the.best.hot.chocolate! The recommendation is via Ashley Ford's sister. It's a little pricey, but you get a lot for what you pay. We also loved the Musee d'Orsay, walking around Notre Dame area and Sainte-Chapelle. Really you can't go wrong with the top sights. Worth stopping at a crepe stand (or 2 or 3) as well.

    London: London is just so wonderful. It's worth visiting Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London (although it's kind of expensive, but still worth a look), the British Museum, Hyde Park (you can rent bikes at different places in the park and drop them off at other bike stands for just a pound or so), and the British Library (there is a room on the first floor that has tons of manuscripts - everything from Jane Austen to the Beatles to the Lindisfarne Gospels). Soho is a great area to find something to eat. Oxford street is nice for shopping, but they are mostly chain stores and it's very busy. You can easily walk between Big Ben, Trafalgar's Square & Buckingham Palace. When you get there I would recommend getting an Oyster card to take the tube otherwise getting single tickets is really expensive. Even just walking around is really nice.

    Dublin: We didn't stay long in Dublin but we really liked the Guinness Storehouse and walking around the parks.

    Sorry, that's probably too much :) Hope you have a great time! When are you going to be in London?

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
