Silk Separates + Platforms

Although I know we still have seven weeks, I’ve always mentally associated Labor Day as the unofficial last day of summer. Before you chime in lamenting over summers end, let me tell you, I am #TeamFall one hundred percent. Being sweaty is not my cup of tea and these Philly heatwaves have me consistently trimming the curls I’m trying to grow out. Nevertheless, I’m going to enjoy the remaining days of summer; and now that I’ve finally unpacked all of my summer clothes, prepare to see some brights on the blog this month!

Follow me long enough and you’ll know I have a soft spot for thrift stores and resale shops. A recent trip to my local Buffalo Exchange in the mere twenty extra minutes I had before work proved to be the work of the Lord. You see, I’ve basically always worn these green silk pants with the same fuchsia top. I bought them both about five years ago from Zara solely because my wardrobe lacked any bright solid summer clothing, not to mention they were styled together on the mannequin.

From that point on, the green silk pants were always worn with the same fuchsia silk top… as a set. It has literally never occurred to me to wear the pieces as separates. That is until I stumbled upon the blouse I’m wearing in this post. I found this silk top for just $7 about a month ago. On the look out for the ever so popular chain link detail we’ve all grown to love from 80’s and 90’s fashion, this was a steal! I hesitated for a second, but the shoulder pads sealed the deal.

I decided to keep things comfy by adding the flat platform sandals I’d purchased to take on my honeymoon. I finished the look with gold jewelry, mirrored sunnies, and my current go to summer purse. Here’s to clothes that last and switching up your style routine by wearing pieces as separates more often… Happy Friday!! XO

Plaid Pants + Ivory Blazer

Well beloveds November is here and that means that it’s the most wonderful time of the year. Why? Because it’s my birthday month! Just how did I kick off my celebration yesterday? By traveling over an hour and a half to get to work thanks to the Philly Septa (our public transportation system) strike.

No shade to the union employess… because benefits, but yesterday’s commute was a hot stanky mess! I made up for it by treating myself to some clearence Halloween candy and a gourmet hot chocolate tho. I have to say Monday’s tartan ensemble has lead to me very own mini plaid revival and I now find myself pulling out all the plaid I own.

Hence today’s outfit features more plaid perfection and loafer love to get you through humpday. Let me just tell you these pants are so comfy you could wear them all week. The stretch fabric makes me forget their not leggings, perfect for long unromantic walk to the train station.

I found this fabulous blazer a few years back from a thrift shop and it’s easily become one of my favorite pieces. The styling options are endless. With my loafers and bowler bag I’m ready to be great. Enjoy your Wednesday loves, try not to work too hard lol!

Plaid + Polka Dots

Happy Friday loves! We prayed for the weather to shift and didn’t God answer our prayer? Won’t He do it?!! I normally hate anything over 80 degrees but God is teaching to stop complaining, especially after the winter we’ve had recently. Now I can finally pack up my sweaters and pull out my spring/summer wardrobe without fear of waking up to an arctic chill again.

 

Although it’s casual Friday at work, 90 degrees is just too hot for jeans in my opinion, so I’ve decided to have some fun. Dressed in head to toe Zara, I’m mixing prints and adding a pop of color! I’m not one for polka dot…which is exactly why I challenged myself to leave my comfort zone. I’ve done it already by adding red to my wardrobe, so now it’s time for bold prints.

The top has zipper detailing with a slight flare at the hem, while the plaid skinny pants elongate my legs adding height. My trusty red shoe and some bold accessories are just what I need to kick off this holiday weekend. Enjoy your Friday, see you Monday XO!

Neutrals

Hello loves!

This week has been very good to me thus far. I prepped my meals and outfits for the work in advance as well as my Instagram posts (follow me there as well @singprayshop) and it has paid off tremendously. I totally recommend prepping for the week and I can’t believe I haven’t done this sooner! More available time before my evening work shift begins means more time to explore the city and shoot in better sunlight. Today’s look is all about neutral shades of taupe, gray, tan, and wheat. I’ve made my favorite scarf, a glorious mixture of all the right neutrals, the centerpiece and finished off with this vintage derby. Here’s to bomb accessories, enjoy your weekend everyone!
