flirty and 30...2


today i'm celebrating my 32nd birthday!  a few years ago, as the clock ticked midnight and the last moments of my 20's drew to a close, i had a mini meltdown.  (it's a hilarious moment my girlfriends still love to make fun of me about.)  but 31 was easy and 32 is a piece of cake.  the older i get the more forgiving i am of any personal insecurities and the happier i am to be alive, healthy and whole!  

i got a special gift from my friends at lululemon to celebrate: two pieces from the latest lululemon lab collection!  this exclusive line is being offered in limited quantities online and in select stores (philadelphia included)!  it's edgy, functional, urban and versatile!  i'm wearing the noir jacket and the noir bra.

alexander wang lydia clutch (similar bags available here and here)
steve madden rayna sandals (similar pair available here)




the perfect amount of coverage and support in this top = no additional bra necessary!



my birthday celebration includes dinner with my boyfriend, sister and her man tonight and some cocktails with friends tomorrow!  i'm looking forward to toasting a new year in my life with the people i love :)

philly bloggers love toggery brand!


i'm a proud resident of philadelphia.  i may not be from here originally, i don't have the philly accent, and i don't eat cheesesteaks.  but i love it here and can't imagine living anywhere else.  today i'm repping my favorite philly clothing line: toggery brand!  toggery's collection of contemporary women's clothing is designed in philly and made in the usa!  i live in their perfect t's and tanks all summer long.  recently i added their effortless a-line dress to my growing collection!

also proudly made in the usa: my gorgeous leather clutch designed and created in nyc by amanda of two tickets.  i'm loving the arrow print on the canvas that matches the bright leather!    




did i mention my family and i came straight brunch from to shoot in rittenhouse park?  did i forget to mention many mimosas were enjoyed there?  hence why this silliness happened...





ok, back to being a serious blogger...

lost on the way home

i'm a long time fan of chromeo.  but i have never heard any of solange's music.  i was checking out chromeo's new album,"white women", and noticed they had a song featuring solange.  out of curiosity i hit play and i'm so glad i did.  lost on the way home is the definition of a summer song.  it's hip, chill, and totally addictive.  


so good, isn't it?

and happy 4th of july to all my fellow americans!

& go


it was a toasty 90 degrees in the city today.  you'd think pants would be a no go on a day like this, but they're a total do when they're from lululemon!  the "get it on" pants let me get my summer without showing too much skin.  these pants are incredibly lightweight and breathable.  they wick away moisture, help me keep my cool, and allow me to beat the heat.

street style with lululemon!


imagine a perfect world in which you could look incredibly chic but feel like you're wearing comfy yoga clothes.  that dream is officially a reality thanks to lululemon's new street wear line!  if you follow my instagram you know that i'm a recent yoga enthusiast.  so i was both excited and intrigued when the philly lululemon store called asking me to come see their new stuff.  i was expecting to pick up a pair of yoga pants but was blown away when i strolled up on a wall of blog worthy apparel.  today i'm wearing their "get it on" dress.  it's soft, breathable, lightweight, and...it has pockets!

silky smooth


i have an appreciation for the finer fashion things in life: supple leather, tailored jeans, and silky tops being a few of them.  i fell in love with tangerine nyc when i set my eyes and my paws on their incredibly soft maxi dress.  today i'm rocking their silky smooth, light weight, floral tank.  it's pretty, fresh, and feels like i have nothing on at all.  the perfect tank for what's sure to be a long sweltering summer :)
