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

Peplum Top + Floral Skirt

Hello beautiful people and cheers to the weekend! This week just flew by and I still can’t beleive it’s September already. If it weren’t for the slight chill to the start of my weekday mornings, I would swear we were still in mid-summer.

I have quite a few friends who are sad to see summer leave but I’m a winter baby and I’m excited about the season ahead. For now, I’ve decided to continue getting wear out of my summer wardrobe for as long as possible while adding layers when needed. Today’s look is a blend of fierce and flirty by pairig this structured top with this bright pencil skirt.


The precise cut of the sleeveless peplum along with the netting add an element of edge when paired with the floral pattern of my skirt. To play on the colors in the skirt I added a white necklace and opted for cobalt accessories for an unexpected pop. Perfect outfit to take me from day to night! XO – Kira

Printed Minidress + Lucite Heels


Happy Humpday beauties! The DNC is here and Dems have taken over the city of Brotherly Love. I love my city and I hope our guests are enjoying their stay. The people here are awesome, the food is amazing, and our museaums are national treasures. Most of my time is spent at work but when I’m not in the office I am out with friends or my fiancé.

On a recent afternoon date we decided to catch a movie and chill in town. We decided on Ghostbusters since Star Trek was sold out and I have to say it was funnier than expected. I was pleasantly surprised lol. I decided to wear this fun little number on our date but don’t worry I brought a sweater for the theater. I absolutely love the newspaper print and the little cut out chain detail in the mid section.

To accessorize I added some vintage chain earrings given to me by my grandmother and a pair of lucite sandals from Aldo. To be honest, I seriously forgot about these sandals til I found them in the back of my closet. They are about ten years old…just old enough to be on trend now. A super simple outfit without a lot of fuss is just what I needed for an afternoon out in the heat!
