Mocha, Leather, and a Bar Mitzvah

Hi/lo dress in mocha with leather details

Just a quick hello today! I am currently in Philadelphia for my cousin’s Bar Mitzvah! I’m so excited to get to catch up with my family members, who I don’t see nearly enough. We just got back from a dinner of delicious Chinese food and now I’m pretty ready to crash out. I’m a terrible procrastinator when it comes to packing, and I had such a hard time picking out what to bring along this trip. I spend most the night worrying about being cold, but not wanting to actually bring cold weather clothes. So far, I think I’ve done okay.

I took these photos right after I got this dress, when I was still unsure if I should keep it (you can still see the tag in the last photo). I loved the fit and the leather detailing on this dress, but the color looked a little off when trying it on in the store. Looking at it in real lights the mocha color looks so much better! This will be the third Bar Mitzvah we’ve had out here so I chose some more practical shoes for walking around. Last year we walked the hilly two miles from the hotel to the synagogue, so this time I’m prepared. Philly is so beautiful, I hope to spend some time capturing the beauty of its buildings.

    I always wear something simple and a skirt. Lovely dress btw!

    • Simple is the way to go, but I usually think in functionally simple. I loved that this was all one piece, but still had a lot of interesting details!
      Thanks so much for reading!
