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. I’ve definitely had some growing pains but they’ve given me a whole new swag. All I can say is this chapter finna be lit! In other news fall lasted about a week so here’s one of the few outfits I got to shoot while it was still “wear your bare legs out” weather LOL.

This is the same DKNY trench from Daffy’s (RIP) that you’ve seen for the last three years because I can still fit it and it matches everything. I genuinely love the way it hugs my frame. This was the perfect outerwear to cover this navy silk number I wore to work. This silk dress features a delicately ruffles with a slightly v-shaped neckline. The pockets made it an instant win for me and they’re surprisingly deep.

I added a printed silk scarf to add some rich color to all this navy and chose a caramel (aka my shade of nude) shoe and bag to balance out the look. You may have noticed that I have this tote in black as well. They’re definitely my go-to bags for work since they’re big enough to carry my flats, tablet, purse umbrella and more. Simple and sophisticated, perfect for another Monday at the office. For those of you working like me, here’s to a short work week – let’s make it awesome!
