 Skirt and Top: Smak Parlour, Heels: LOFT, Purse: Vintage 

I don't know if it's too much Mad Men, or my obsession with vintage fashion but I feel like a 60's actress in this outfit. Well, a 60's actress with a twist of 90's Cher from Clueless and a modern Taylor Swift. Not only does this outfit play with my obsession of vintage fashion but my obsession with matchy outfits as well (I may even own about 10 pairs of matching pajama sets...).

But, if you didn't notice, I got a haircut! I shared the news on my instagram last weekend. I chose this bold outfit from Smak Parlour for my bold move. I was so nervous about the cut but I couldn't feel more like myself. I've had long hair for years and was itching for a change but didn't want to put any dyes in my hair so this is what I went with! 

Hope you all are having a great start to your week!! It will be Friday before we know it.

Apple Picking

Wednesday, October 8, 2014

Top: Madewell (Similar), Collared Top: Old Navy, Jeans: Old Navy (Similar), Hat and Shoes: Target (Both Old)

So after years of adding apple picking to my Fall To-Do List, I finally went. I went home last weekend for a country music festival and while I was there Derek and I went! It was a gorgeous day out, even if it was a little dreary out. The smell was amazing and I've basically been craving apple cider since then. Naturally, I tried to go with a fall-themed outfit. How have you been celebrating the new season?

Plaid Days

Friday, October 3, 2014

Dress: Loft, Necklace: Loft, Hat: Avery Fedora by 5th and Elm, Shoes: Nine West, Watch: Michael Kors

Growing up in southern states as a child and then in rural Pennsylvania from middle school on, I have always been around small town places and people. In high school I had a deep love for fashion and personal style, which is when I started this blog. Halfway through high school I felt like I no longer fit in these small towns and I was going to move to the city. After graduating I went straight for Philadelphia and still live there today, nearly four years later. Right now I still feel weirdly between a city and country girl. 

Sometimes I feel too country for the city and too city for the country. That feeling is a little unsettling sometimes but instead of being fearful of it, I've decided to just embrace it. And embracing my country side can be an excuse for my love of plaid. And what's a better way to show my love for plaid by wearing an entire dress of it? 

This incredibly comfortable dress is from Loft is so easy to accessorize. I wore my favorite accessory, my 5th and Elm fedora with this despite the fact that I usually don't mix black and blue. Sometimes you just got to break your own fashion rules.

Afternoon Bike Ride

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Top: Express, Skirt: Ruche (White Version), Shoes: Chelsea Crew via DSW (Yellow Version)

Today was sunny and 80 degrees. Fall isn't quite here but I feel summer slipping away. With the longer length of both the skirt and the top, I found this to be a good transitional outfit for me. Navy, white and red is my favorite color combo (Obviously, I'm wearing it in the post before this one too ha) and I'm sure I'll carry it with me throughout the cooler months. Derek took these when I was home in York over the summer. That might be my biggest transition right now. During the summer I went home a few times within the month to see my family and Derek but now that fall has rolled around I'm going home this upcoming weekend for a few days and probably won't make it out of Philadelphia until Thanksgiving. 

On the bright side, Ruche is having a great sale. Tops and bottoms are both 40% off. I have my eyes on THIS gorgeous skirt. A button up and midi skirt is my favorite outfit combo right now and I can't wait to start piling sweaters on top of that.
