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
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).
5 - Avocado toast
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.

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!
