Summer Skirt at Chi Lin

Leather Jacket: BLANKNYC  |  Top: Topshop (sold out, similar here)  |  Skirt: Abercrombie & Fitch (sold out, similar here and here)  |  Shoes: Adidas  |  Earrings: Kendra Scott  |  Bag: Coach (old, similar here)

I shot this look that works for summer when I was in Hong Kong in February.  I'm loving that jean skirts are making a major comeback and landed up adding two to my closet (this one with embroidery and then another without it).  The great thing about jean skirts is that they go with so many things and are a nice change from jean shorts in the summer.  I paired mine with a simple tshirt and my favorite sneakers for an easy and effortless look.  While it's a little too warm for a jacket now it's a nice thing to grab on a cooler summer night to have in case you get chilly.

This look is especially great for all the summer exploring and traveling you might be doing.  It's both comfortable and stylish so you can walk around and take in your surroundings without having to make any sacrifices.  I know I'll definitely be making a few trips into New York City this summer and will probably wear this look at least once for that exact reason!

Lucy Turns One!

On June 7th my sweet puppy, Lucy, that I adopted in September turned one!  Of course for such a big occasion we had to celebrate.  I got her the cutest dog cake from Amelie's Bark Shop in South Philadelphia and it came out even better then I ever could've imagined.  If you're looking for a custom dog cake (she even does ones with dog portraits on them!) or any other bakery style dog treats then you absolutely have check out Amelie's.

For Lucy's big day we went to two dog parks, showered her with dog treats, gave her a new toy, and sang her "Happy Birthday" with her cake.  She definitely had a day filled with fun and love, which she so deserves.  Last, but not least, I had to do a little photoshoot to commemorate the occasion!  I landed up getting two hats because one came late, but I took pictures with both because I'm extra like that.  Here I've put together all her super cute 1st Birthday pictures (she's the best little dog model!) and also a few pictures of her amazing cake.

Do you celebrate your pet's birthday?
