neutral florals


most of the pictures i shoot for my blog are taken in fishtown, northern liberties, or other city neighborhoods close to wear i live.  i appreciate the modern and rough look of the parts of philly that are under improvement, but when i'm seeking the historic philadelphia vibe i head over to society hill.  with its cobblestone streets, endless blocks of brick homes and gorgeous mature trees it's a must see place during spring.  when i scooped up this neutral floral print h&m dress i knew this historic hood would be the perfect place to shoot it!

at home

it's fridayyyy fridayyyyy!  if that alone won't put you in the best mood ever, this song will!  crystal fighters' at home turns lyrics that would otherwise be sad into an upbeat, delightfully charming 4 minutes of bliss.  if you like bands like passion pit or grouplove, you'll appreciate their adorable aesthetic!  
  

cute right?

the best boyfriend ever


i like to believe i have the best boyfriend ever...and now i've finally found a denim version to fall head over heels for!  meet g star raw's arc 3d tapered jeans.  they're everything i could want in boyfriend denim: slouchy, sturdy, stretchy, and oh so wearable.  i've worn them at home cuffed with moccasins, let them drape over sky high heels, and loosely cuffed them like in this look.  my boyfriend jeans and i will be #togetherforever!

a tip on sizing: i'm traditionally a size 4 or a 28 and i purchased my jeans in a size 28.  they hang low, so size down if you'd like a slimmer fit!  you can buy my g star raw arc 3d jeans here!  are you as much in love with my boyfriend jeans as i am?

i'm feeling lucky

my life in the last few months has been an absolute whirlwind...but in a very good way.  i've been feeling lucky with all the successes i've had at work recently.  but i've been slacking on the music posts due to my hectic schedule.  i'm making a sincere effort over the next few weeks to update you with new music!  today's featured song is lonesound's feeling lucky.  hope you love it! 


thoughts?  love it, hate it, or emoting something different all together?  :)

the vacation chronicles: khao lak


one of my many loves in life in addition to music and fashion is traveling.  wanderlust is in my blood and i've made it a personal goal to travel somewhere wonderful at least once a year.  after an insanely busy 6 months at work i was desperately in need of a calming vacation someplace warm.  the destination of choice: khao lak, thailand.  here are some of my favorite vacation pictures...

our room at the sarojin- absolute paradise
day 1 in our pool: looking quite exhausted from the 24 trip
wearing a zinke emmi bikini top

spotted this little guy while doing yoga one morning on our lanai

it's been a struggle to return to normal life, but i'm motivated to work harder than ever so i can keep can on seeing the world.  :)  if you love to travel you must put thailand on your bucket list.  we will definitely be back again someday!
