MY GUIDE TO PHILLY

Recently I was asked to create a Summer Style and Hot Spot guide to Philly for Glam Media’s latest app. I’ve been in Philly now for just 1 year and 8 months (crazy right? feels like it has been so much longer!), which hardly makes me an expert on the city – but I have found a handful of gems (shops! restaurants! bars!) that I really love and frequent often (and take all of my visitors to) and it was fun to create this guide to share them with all of you. See below for my shoppable guide – and download the free iphone and ipad app here to see Style Guides for cities all across the U.S. by fashionable blogging gals.

DREAMCATCHER

DREAMCATCHER 2 DREAMCATCHER 7 DREAMCATHER 15

 As I always say – I love a good dreamcatcher. Always have . You have to keep the bad spirits out of your dreams at night and bring in a little *magic* to your space. I recently put up this dreamy lacy one with an amethyst, my birthstone, over my bed to bring me sweet dreams. I got it at a flea market here in Philly and it’s by Sultana Maria, but the best ones are really Electric Love. My antler head? Also a Philly flea market score – he’s a real Pennsylvania Buck. I’m posting this as I am about to crawl into that bed of mine, and face and conquer another Monday tomorrow….sighhh xo

A SUMMER UNIFORM

SUMMER UNIFORM 04 TEVAS 11 TEVAS 01 TEVAS 7 James Perse tee // DIY Vintage Denim skirt (a great new one here) // Ray Ban Wayfarers // Annabel Ingall Large Tote bag // Teva sandals : Teva Universal in White & Teva Original Thong in Teal/Coral

I had a moment as I was pulling into work yesterday morning: the windows rolled down listening to Lana Del Rey’s new album, I got out of the car and walked into the building in 80 degree weather at 9am in this outfit, and I thought, wow it’s summer. Summertime is here. It’s almost hard for me to believe after that endless winter. And don’t tell the future me in approx one weeks time when I really can’t deal with the humidity, but it feels amazing. There’s something great about experiencing summer on the East Coast where its 85 – 95 degrees everyday for 3 months, from sun rise to sun set, like clockwork. I really haven’t experienced that before, ever. And here we have what will surely be my summer uniform: my favorite easy tee, a throw on denim skirt, and my new favorite sandals – Tevas. For most people Tevas bring them back to the mid 90s – we all had them, I wore them with socks in middle school. And while I am totally not getting on board with the Birkenstock thing (I actually wore them not that long ago in the 2000s in college, and I get that they’re like all fashion right now (chic?) but I.Just.Can’t. do it again- mostly because everyone else apparently can and I have big feet). I was hesitant on the Teva thing too, but then I saw this, and then them here, and then this was really the topper on the cake, and all of a sudden, I wanted them. I think they’re pretty cute (right??!!), and they’re not Birkenstocks :-). So welcome Summer, I’m so ready for you. xx
