The World is Your Playground

Go explore it! I cannot believe how much beauty I see everyday exploring around Philadelphia and even on my drive to work up 76. There are constantly new places I am finding that are gorgeous and tucked away in such a big city. I was excited to take the time today to scout some new shooting locations, thought my apartment was getting a bit boring as a backdrop. I was so pleased to find this abandon house very close to my apartment building. So Bruiser and I took the camera and went on a hike, I think the results turned out pretty well.

70's Vibes

If you romp around in a romper do you jump around in a jumper? I sure did in this one! After putting on this jumper from Nordstrom I felt like a true 70's child with my bell bottoms on. It is so funny how history repeats itself, especially in the fashion world. Every time I show my mom something new I bought she says, "I had something just like that when I was your age!"

One thing I have learned working in the fashion industry is that you must stay true to your style and allow it to change as you do in life. I will always have a hint of bohemian style in my wardrobe but  I have been mixing in more mature pieces as well to fit my new job title as an assistant manager. If you want to really grow with a company or sell yourself in an interview you need to be confident in how you look.

Daily Adventures

I had the best time last weekend enjoying the Mad Decent Block Party in Philly on Friday and venturing to Sea Isle, New Jersey for a beach day Saturday with my good friend Marisa. It was such a pleasure to have a weekend off for the first time this summer. However, if I learned anything this summer it is that hard work pays off. When I get near the ocean though I just feel like I belong, I will live near a beach someday.

My concert look was a simple PacSun and H&M get up. For the beach I went with a Billabong bathing suit, Nasty Gal floppy hat, and LOFT romper. Get outfit details below.

Feeling like a real #GIRLBOSS

I would have never dreamed that I would be getting to try on Valentino shoes for a day of work. I feel so blessed as I am taking this new journey into adulthood and starting my career, full time now. It feels so different to be helping people shop for back to school but it's the first year I am not going back to classes myself. It is a little intimidating starting the real world but I lasted my entire internship in Philadelphia just fine and that's how I hope the rest of the year will go for me. It is a little strange being away from everyone I know but at least I am a people person and able to strike up a conversation with just about anyone.

Wild Child with a Wild Heart

The newest addition 

Life is a whirlwind and that's completely fine for me. I love making the most of a hectic schedule, if there aren't enough hours in a day to get something done it's time to prioritize and realize it is okay to leave dishes in the sink sometimes.

That's how I felt this past week being in a transitional period from driving home, changing positions at work, and preparing for an amazing weekend with a friend who came and visited. This was a really fun and exciting week for me though and I cannot wait to share all my exciting stories from the weekend along with my outfits! This look was to match my wild hair day and heart I was having that day, just feeling a little jungle cat like. This blouse is from Free People and the white crops are from LOFT.

Daily Adventures

This weeks daily adventure was traveling back to the rolling hills of Happy Valley. This is something I haven't gotten the chance to do much this summer so it is always nice to visit my family and friends. Especially when I get to take advantage of my mother's awesome backyard. This shoot was a fun pool time one to show you how I love mixing and matching bikini top and bottoms. The ones featured in this shoot come from Forever21 and Free People.

I'm So Fancy

Or at least I like to think so sometimes. Dressing up has always been sometime fun for me to do. It doesn't hurt when it's part of your job to make other people feel good about themselves too. I believe that your confidence goes a long way if you feel good in how you feel and what you are wearing. Today's look is a simple yet sophisticated and put together at the same time. These paisley print pants from Forever21 add the flare to the outfit I need. While the blouse from H&M really classes the outfit up, along with the gold jewelry I've paired with it. This diamond ring is my grandmothers and is always sentimental for me when I wear it.
