CUPCAKIN' / Bright yellow, metallic purple and geometric printed circle skirt

It was Rufus's birthday yesterday! My little Jack Russell Terrier (or Terror...) turned nine human years old but he is still chock full of energy as if he is still a puppy. We bought him a doggy cake and let him go at it and go at it he did; he devoured the cake so fast! Love the little guy to pieces.

Inspired by cupcakes, candy, and painted eggs, I combined bright colors and a printed circle skirt to create a "sweet" outfit. The mixture of yellow, blues, and purples remind me of a bowl of candy (like those found when you walk into a restaurant or the lollipops that the dentist offers you after an appointment, the irony!) while the silhouette of the outfit reminds me of an upside down cupcake. This was an outfit quite suited for the Easter Holiday that just past. Did you have a good Easter by the way?

Instead of introducing another color into the outfit and trying to avoid being too matchy-matchy, I went with neutral grey flats to tie the outfit together. Flats with any outfits tend to make an outfit casual and since the materials of the skirt and top are more casual, I wanted shoes that give that vibe. The silver metallic leather cap toe and heel pulled the belt and bag together (because of the crisp silver on both pieces). I was always under the assumption that metallic cap-toe shoes, whether heels or flats or boots, were made with an actual metal piece so I was pleasantly surprised to find that these are actually leather with a metallic finish! Makes for a much more comfortable pair of shoes!

It seems that there has been lots of doggy birthdays during the end of march and so far this month (according to Facebook, Instagram, and twitter), did you celebrate your furbaby's birthday as well? If so, give them a big hug and doggy kiss for me! Have a wonderful Tuesday and take care.
