Love pastels for fall! The styling is so perfect.

Picnic at Night

























Oh yes, this really was a lovely day. Not only did the weather permit me to pull out my favorite vintage shirt in the history of the world, but it was nice enough to have a wonderful picnic outdoors with my friends Dylana, Kim, and Brian. We decided to skip out on all the fuss of rushing to happy hour and decided to create our own private one. I'd say it beat being in a stuffy restaurant exponentially. Plus, I was with the world's most awesome foodies (aka Brian and Kim) so of course they ensured that we didn't go hungry. We went to this awesome local Philly market place called Di Bruno Brothers and picked up a delicious cheese spread, fresh baguette, and olives and completed it with a bottle of wine. So began our picnic under the stars.



PS- a huge thanks to Kim for taking these photos with her stellar lens. I think I'm in love!

I'm really starting to look forward to fall. I can't wait to be able to start wearing layers, like in this awesome look.

Pre-Fall





















Okay so I will be the first to admit that I did not absolutely have to wear tights yesterday. But did

it make my day just a bit better? Yes of course! It was 60 degrees outside and super duper

windy, so I think it was totally acceptable pulling the tights out for this particular day. It

only made me that much more excited for fall which I can tell is creeping it's way into

Philly! Anyways, I received these booties last week and simply have not been able to take

them off since! I have been pairing them with maxi skirts & jeans (but mainly maxis)

and have found that they go with pretty much everything. It is so nice to have a staple piece

like these.



These photos were taken the morning after the hurricane. Thankfully I was not put into

any danger or harm, but I am keeping those who were in my thoughts. To get through

the weather, Dylana came over for a sleepover where we watched a billion movies,

made Indian food, drank wine, and indulged in yummy yogurt ice cream. Such a fun

night in! After being cooped up in the house for a day, we went to China Town

(the usual) and had yummy Vietnamese food followed by a delicious bubble tea

treat! I got the taro flavor mmm.

I've been getting in to cooking lately and I wanted to share a few recipes I've discovered and have tried / will eventually be trying. These are only a sampling of meals I'm dying to make; via Atlantis Home (1 + 2), Sprouted Kitchen (3 + 4) and Milk & Mode (5 + 6).



1 - Frittata Ranchera with black beans



2 - Individual biscuit cobblers



3 - Curry spiced pommes frites + cucumber dip



4 - Green bean + black quinoa salad



5 - Avocado toast



6 - Summer spaghetti with sweet market tomatoes

I'm hesitant to call this an "it-bag" because it has the potential to become a new classic. The texture of the leather, the zippered detail and the minimal hardware are absolutely beautiful. I love it in the deep navy and the lush mossy green; buuuut since I'm kind of boring I know I would choose it in black. 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli satchel, here.

Rainy Day Mix Tape





















Sometimes I find it difficult to wear a dress in the summer time without feeling too boring.

There is no possible way of layering in Philly's humidity at times, so I have found myself

straying away from them. However, I am pretty obsessed with this cotton dress and the

pretty flower bouquet print. I don't find myself feeling the need to layer with this dress

and I think it can simply stand out on it's own. I feel so carefree when I put it on! I paired

it with these blush pink wedges, aka my favorite color in the world, and called it a day.



Anyways, I have gotten lovely responses from all my past "mix tapes" that I have put on

this blog and that makes me so very happy! So I will probably be featuring this

a bit more on the blog. If only I could personally make mix cds with hand-drawn

cover art for all of you I would! But that seems simply impossible so for now this will

just have to do- just click on the song and it will take you to the video on YouTube!

Lately Philly has been extremely gloomy and rainy which is my kind

of weather. So here is a bit of chill music from my rainy day playlist:



1.) The Avett Brothers- Swept Away

2.) My Morning Jacket- Golden

3.) Ben Sollee- Prettiest Tree On The Mountain

4.) Simon & Garfunkel- Bleeker Street

5.) DeVotchka- New World

6.) Widowspeak- Gunshy

7.) M.Ward- Undertaker

8.) Owen Pallett- This is The Dream of Win & Regine

9.) Fleet Foxes- Grown Ocean

10.) Wilco- She's a Jar

11.) Asobi Seksu- Thursday



Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! If you have to face Hurricane Irene like me,

please be safe!
