This post is about my BFF - the first man I ever loved: My Daddio.

My Dad came into the city to see our new loft before we ate lunch downtown. We

walked to Rooster

, did some shopping at

Left Bank Books

and then hung out at our place where my sister tried to walk in my platform booties and failed.

This amazing Yin & Yang skirt was a gift from my Dad, so I thought it appropriate for the day (not to mention totally on-point). I thought it came from Thailand, but none of us could remember if it were really from Korea or Japan instead. My Dad always brought us gifts after his travels and this skirt (to which I own a matching crop top) is a personal favorite. It also may or may not be making a

duet appearance at NYFW

this September.

My sister Lauren snagged my camera and captured a few moments I really love. The

tee and chain are both from Clr-Mnstr Downtown St. Louis.

If you haven't been to

Rooster

, their crepes should top your list for

STL brunch

. Various other menu items are just as good: I highly recommend the

B.E.L.T. with guacamole

.

Dad snagged a couple books (on me) at

Left Bank Downtown

, including a hardcover motorcycle coffee table book to add to his collection.

Really just can't get over how perfect this skirt is! Although, my significant other thinks it looks like I'm headed to Hawaii. For real. He said that.

I love my Dad - and my Mom too. It was great being able to spend the day with them, and I hope it happens often this Summer.
