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

 ::Nightmares pass through the holes and out of the window. The good dreams are trapped in the web, and then slide down the feathers to the sleeping person::

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

ON THE STEPS OF THE ART MUSEUM

I was asked recently to put together a little guide to Philly- all of my favorite places to eat, drink & do (which I will be publishing here very soon)- including pictures of me in front of my favorite Philly landmark. I chose the Philadelphia Art Museum- specifically, it’s front steps, which are of course iconic for those scenes in ‘Rocky.’ The Art Museum is my favorite landmark for a couple of reasons –  1) the art inside (so many good impressionists), and 2) the view from the top of the steps (I missed the mark on a picture of that for sure), which is of the whole city looking down Ben Franklin Parkway to City Hall.  You can’t miss a trip here if you ever visit Philly (and you should! Come hang with me!). My outfit is an ode to classic East Coast Prep – which seemed appropriate- with my own twist of course (I don’t think anyone would ever call me ‘preppy’ but I do have an appreciation for the classics). Nautical Stripes in a cool slouchy silhouette and a structured Navy fluted skirt. Classic tortoise shell sunglasses and a red lip finish off the a-little-Americana look.

The sunshine is out and this weekend is looking to be in the 80s! I’m a plannin a day trip to the beach! Gotta get some vitamin D and get my toes in the ocean!
