uncut plain weave

A couple of weeks ago we took a trip to PA to visit my sister Bianca and her bf Matt, 
we got to see her new apartment 
& see a little of the Villanova Law School that she has decided to attend! 
So proud!

We checked out her local coffee shop, Pour Richards Coffee Co,


Such a cute coffee shop and a very good little cappuccino! 

What comes after coffee? 
Beer of course! 
We went to a new brewery: La Cabra Brewing 


I had a flight to try a few beers:
Willard- a saison, The Joy Marshall- white IPA, Simcoe Shatter- lactose IPA, 
Sign Sealed Delivered- NEIPA
The Joy Marshall- white IPA was my favorite, but they were all really good.

I wanted to try their "Hipster Catnip" but they didn't have any, 
which just means we will have to go again! 

I had muscles and they were very tasty! 

Their bight green walls were perfect for some pics, 
{and yes I was still drinking my coffee...}
I wore some "uncut plain weave" aka terry cloth for this adventure, 
yup. 
Textile Science class may have been a year ago, 
and I may have graduated Fashion School but I can't stop.


What I Wore: glasses- Glasseslit, lips- Loreal x Balmain "246 Confession", necklace- AxelHoney, top- Marimekko x Target, shorts- Anthropologie, sandals- Target



Next stop was Tired Hands!

I really enjoyed the Nelson Savin MagoMago- Mango DIPA (SO GOOD)
& the Hee Haw- Strawberry Table Bier (also very good!)

While walking around Wayne, PA I spotted these amazingly massive glasses 
& was obviously obsessed:

When we looked up to see the name of the shop everyone was like 
"OMG you only need one more M!"...
Haha, I wish!

We also had a beer at "Great American Pub Wayne"
which is a weird, golf centered bar, can't say I would recommend
but their ladies bathroom sign was too funny not to share:

August & Everything After


That cartoon may be true with how crazy these little predators can be, 
but look at how beautiful this jungle kitty is!
Thanks to my sister Audrey for capturing these pics!

Living out the last of summer in my go-to casual outfit:



What I Wore: glasses- c/o Mo Eyewear, lips-Kathleen Lights x Colourpop "Scorpio Moon", necklace-  AsTheCrowFliesandCo on Etsy, top- gift from hubby, shorts- H&M, flats- Marc Jacobs {via Poshmark closest onceuponarunway}



Took this casual outfit to the mall, 
got some imposture Thai Tea that made me want to fly back to get the real thing...

& went to Victoria's Secret to redeem a free panty and pick up a new bra!
I never buy bras so I was excited to get a new one since I recently cleared out some old ones
 that have been driving me crazy (ie. straps falling down, not fitting well, etc.)
I picked up this green zebra one and have been OBSESSED. 
It is perfection, I love how it fits and looks!

They have the same bra in a lipstick print that I may need.
& my may, I mean need ASAP.

A little bit of a two-for-one on today’s Wanted Wednesday!

The heat wave this week definitely has me in some wishful Mexico vacation vibes,
I love all these tops & dresses! 
Solei- first πŸ‘€on lovelyamystyle on Instagram

W Vintage Vibes- I love all these embroidered beauties,

a second chance... in so many ways.

I loved this post & reminder from heyclaire on Instagram

& I have recently done just that...
I took my beloved Louis Vuitton & Tory Burch x Target lunch box
and got myself a new job! 

My hubby is so cute, 
look at this breakfast, coffee, and note! 
He is the best! 

So you may be asking...
what is the new job?!

I am now the Fashion Copywriter / Lister for A Second Chance in New York City! 
I write all product descriptions, take measurements and upload items to their online store 
as well as on Tradsey & 1stdibs.

{That picture is of their SoHo location, I work in Upper East Side location}

The view from my desk πŸ‘‡πŸ»



What I Wore: glasses- Warby Parker, lips- Essence Beauty "Cool Nude", necklace- Hunt & Orchard, top- Old Navy, pants- Target, loafers- vintage, bag- Louis Vuitton  




Why not both? 

I plan on sharing my favorite items from my new job in a new segment called "Loved & Listed!
These items are too pretty not to share!
I will link when possible but some of these babies fly off the e-commerce shelves!

Bottom Left: <<sold>>

This convertible Dior bag is such an interesting style, I love how it folds and clips into a clutch!  


All my years obsessing over luxury and seemingly useless knowledge is actually my job now!!
I can hardly believe it!

This overheadnewyork post really made my laugh out loud, 
+ the cost of commuting into NYC, 
definitely going to be a no from me too dog.

So excited for this Second Chance 
& to be able to wear something other than all black again!

Mo Lowda & Mo Love

Look at this beautiful bounty! 
πŸ…πŸ…

Guess I was inspired by those colors for the florals I decided to wear that day:



What I Wore: glasses- EyeBuyDirect, lips- Kathleen Lights x Colourpop "Scorpio Moon", 
necklace- gift from hubby, top- vintage, shorts- Target, booties- c/o Cleo Madison



I was really feeling myself in this cute outfit and I asked Charlie, "do you recognize this top?"
and he said "Are you going for the Kim Kardashian meme where she looks like that floral couch?"
I was like "WTF, not the answer I was looking for..."
{source: me.me}

I said (in a rather high pitched voice) "NO, it is the same print I wore for our engagement photoshoot"
He said, "How am I suppose to know that it was 6+ years ago!"
& I said, "They are the only framed pictures we have of us around the house!"
God.
I thought it was cute because it was also the start of our wedding anniversary week but apparently Charlie had Kim Kardashian memes on his mind...




I mean it was a while ago but look how cute these pics are!
{They were taken by our friend Brandi

Anyways I took these vintage florals out to finally see Mo Lowda play at Triumph in New Hope
I work with the lead singer Jordan at Vault Brewing and was so excited to see them live! 




Such a great show!



Got to hang out with my coworkers and friends too!


Really enjoyed seeing Mo Lowda and The Humble play live, 
here are my three current faves: 

& I added them to my 2018 Spotify Playlist!


After a late night of fun, I woke up to this on my pillow:
