Last month when I went to Tokyo to model in the Girls Award fashion show, I added on an extra three days to visit my bff in Hong Kong. She’s been living there for more than two years now and I hadn’t made it over to see her, so I knew this time I needed to go. It’s funny how with great friends you can go without seeing them for months and months, but when you get together you just go right back to where you left off. She was taking me around to all the incredible Hong Kong shops like Joyce and Lane Crawford and I totally fell in love with these Valentino lace-up sandals, but I’m just not at a point right now where I can justify spending $1,400 on sandals that might go out with the season. When I spotted a pair at Zara that were a similar look, I pounced (actually, it took me at least 20 minutes to get them on in the store while my friend patiently helped me to lace them up). I plan to wear them all summer long with summer dresses and flowy skirts for an edgy take on the boho look.

Today I’m off to a barre class with my sister then I’m going to plan a fun date night for Saturday since Holden and I are both free on the same night which doesn’t happen very often lately on weekends. Any ideas?
