DOPE

{Gap denim jacket, DOPE tee c/o Style Lately (similar style), Larsen Gray pencil skirt, Zara pumps, Kenneth Cole necklace, 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli}


When you have "nothing to wear" you don your cheekiest tee and do it up- a la zippered pencil skirt, sleek pumps and a chunky gold necklace to modernize the entire look. This happened to be the night before my birthday and my parents took my husband, my sister and I out for Burmese food and then to watch Motown- a musical- which was fantastic! 

My sister and I have the very same birthday, two years apart, but still crazy right? Growing up it was never easy sharing this day with her: wearing identical dresses you mother made, having two birthday songs sung, but worst of all was having your 2nd birthday hijacked from you because your mother went into labor with your future sibling. But these days I appreciate this coincidence more than ever, I guess that's what happens when you become an adult. It was so nice to be able to celebrate with everyone, including said sibling (who was nice enough to take these pics!) on quite the momentous occasion, it was in a word- dope.
