April in Paris



Why I've Been MIA:
Hey, y'all!  I've had a hectic week or so.  If you follow me on Instagram (that's always where I make announcements first in the event of me going MIA), you know some of what's been happening!  A lot of mundane things I haven't announced, like my Internet going out and tripod breaking, but I've also had last minute company, a sprained wrist due to a Just Shair roller skating incident/party (#klutzalert!), and last night I had a scary and freak episode with my beagle where I had to rush her to emergency vet. She's currently tired but seemingly on the mend-phew...I thought she was going to die in my arms so I'm counting my lucky stars!!  

Anyway, this post will be quick as possible as an attempt get back into the blogging groove...

About the Outfit
I'm wearing the Pinup Girl Clothing Jenny skirt in the Paris print.  I found it on eBay almost two years ago, which was lucky because right after I bought it the PUG site put it on sale and it sold out FAST.  So many people missed out on this special number that PUG very recently brought the skirt back (and it's dress version) in their comeback series, #proposedpug.  (Edit: I'm unclear if they already brought it back and it sold out or if they're bringing it back ASAP and currently just have it on the site for waiting list purposes.  Sorry for any confusion!)  This was one of the only ones that I've fully understood them bringing back, as it really is a special print!

Outfit Details:
I decided to pair this outfit with mostly blue for a monochrome look with some pink and coral accessories.  
Sunglasses- Forever 21
Tank- Old Navy
Bag- Kate Spade 
Shoes- G by Guess
Music Time!
This blog post was named for a Louis Armstrong + Ella Fitzgerald song, "April in Paris."  Paris skirt in April equals a no brainer for a name like this!  Plus, who doesn't love Louis Armstrong & Ella Fitzgerald!?  Can't go wrong with the classics!



I've recently added two pages to this blog, one that catalogues posts named after songs and another that catalogues all of the concert stories.  Click the links on to see for yourself!  Happy Friday!

  1. Whew, you've had a totally bonkers time of it recently! I'm so thankful that your pup is all right, and we will definitely have to talk wrist rehabbing soon.

    In outfit-related news: this is SO cute and I'm even more excited for the Paris print rerelease now! I'm really loving the combination of that incredible print and the hot pink bag!

  19. Wow! So sorry to hear about the string of misfortunes your way! I'm so glad to hear that it looks like your pup is going to be alright! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you! I'm also sorry to hear about your sprained wrist! I hope it heals soon! I love this skirt and this whole outfit on you! This print is such a great print. I've had the dress version on my radar since you announced a while about PUG doing some reissues! I'm 95% sure it hasn't popped back up again and it being on the website as sold out just means it's still in the works ;) Also LOVE the title for this post. Meant to be! :D

  21. I'm sorry you've had a hectic time. But at least you look a million dollars! You are so cute in this outfit. I love the colours. And I just got my first Jenny skirt from PUG (the orange one), so I totally understand the love for it!
    Hope things will get a bit less hectic for you. Take care.
    Much love,

  29. I'm so happy that your dog is okay! I know the feeling, my cat has asthma and when he had his first episode, I was hysterical and so scared, they are our babies after all! I'm also sorry to hear that you have sprained wrist, oh man. I think it was wise taking a break from blogging because typing would definitely put more strain on it, preventing it from healing faster. As for your outfit, I LOVE that skirt, the fit, the print, everything about it is perfect! I also love that Kate Spade purse, too! Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you have a wonderful day!

  34. Hello, dear! Yes, I have come to your blog before and didn't find new post, so I knew you were busy and would come next week, but I gave it a try again and now I see that it was more than being busy, it was a lot - the wrist (hope you are better now) and your dog! That is so scary, thankfully she is fine now, tired but fine! This outfit is super lovely - the Paris print skirt, so good you were able to buy it, so beautiful! And the shoes and top are great as well, match perfectly! As usual, you look very beautiful and I hope you have a nice rest of the week and weekend, too, without any scary moments! Only luck!
