One of those better late than never posts. You know how that goes. Summer in Philly is here in full effect and as usual, I’m never prepared. But, learning how to go with the flow a lot more these days and thankful that it seems to be working. A couple weekends back we made a super last minute and super brief stop at the Odunde festival in South Philly. If there is one festival I make sure to get to it’s Odunde. I decided to wear the dashiki I bought the year before at one of the vendors. Pink, of course. And like any festival, the hubs stopped to do a street performance. He was dope, as always. Ended the day with a couple pics taking advantage of this super cute Visit Philly sign. Gotta love the city of brotherly love. ~xoxo
Memorial Day is here. A chance to remember fallen soldiers, a day off from work–insert side eye as I reminisce on the days of paid holidays, no complaints though, just saying ;)–bbq’s, family time, and the unofficial start to summer. I’m not sure what it’s feeling like in your city but for Philly, we kicked off Memorial Day Weekend with temps in the 90’s. So much for that spring capsule huh? I had just added a few more pieces too and then bam! Summer is here. I can’t say I’m upset though as the weather allowed me to pull out one of my favorite summer dresses. This blue and grey striped maxi. Continue Reading
Took advantage of the fact that it actually felt like Spring in Philly on Mother’s Day and snapped a few quick flicks in the most casual outfits in my closet.

I’ve been slowly, and when I say slowly I mean it, adding to my capsule wardrobe so lucky for me, I actually had something quick to pull together without me even thinking about it. Now THAT is what a capsule wardrobe is supposed to do for you! Continue Reading
Some days, no matter how hard I try to get a hold of my schedule…it gets away from me. This past weekend was one of those days. I previously made plans to go a beauty expo with my business partner, totally missing the fact that the Mr. had a game the same day. The day of the event shows up when my trusty Google reminder let me know that right in the middle of the expo…hubs has to leave for work. Gahhh. Of course, undermining my own good judgement I decided I could leave early, hit the expo for a few hours, and be back home in plenty of time. I’ll just let you guys figure out how that went. But not all was lost. I took advantage of a cute outfit and natural daylight to catch some cute outfit pics. Denim on Denim for the win and shoutout to Instagram husband for the photo cred ;).
