Sequin Knits + Leather Jeans

Don’t be fooled, basic is not always a bad thing. Take today’s outfit for instance. Originally, I’d planned to shoot this look with a black fur vest but realized I’d forgotten the vest when hubbs and I reached our location. Do I skip the shoot and just head to work or do I shoot regardless…

Purple Shawl + Maroon Boots

Lately I’ve been all about jewel tones in both my fashion and makeup. Although color palate rules are no longer a “thing” anymore, I certainly still get a rush from wearing these shades in colder months. Today’s look was entirely pieced together around this beautiful printed shawl. The deep purple color looks absolutely beautiful in…

Mink + Velvet

You’d have to be living on a deserted island not to notice that velvet is THE fabric of the season. Sandals, sweats, tees, boots… it’s everywhere, and it’s functional. Few fabrics just ooze luxury and take me back to Joan Collins Dynasty era glam like velvet. A while back I scored this velvet faux-wrap dress…

Printed Blouse + Peach Trousers

Thanksgiving weekend has come and gone and hopefully you’ve enjoyed your holiday. Hubby and I spent our first Thanksgiving (and Black Friday for that matter) in bed watching movies. We opted to barbecue instead of preparing a traditional turkey dinner, although we made sure to bake an apple pie. It was the most relaxing two…

Khaki Trench + Navy Silk

  Guess who turned thirty-four over the weekend? Yup, your favorite Philly Jawn is officially in her mid thirties. There is so much left to process from year thirty-three that I’m sure it’ll take me til the end of the month to finish reflecting but as far as I’m concerned, my new year started Saturday.…

Wrap Shirt + Ripped Pearl Jeans

So here’s the thing, I have a horrible habit of buying clothes and leaving them in my closet for months. This front-tie wrap shirt for instance, was purchased early this year and has since collected dust. It was one of my first ever purchases from Go Jane along with some patched denim. I figured it…
