It’s been awhile – but I’m back and more inspired than ever. The past few months have been filled with changes, but all in the best possible way. My husband and I have been in a transition period for the past year or so. He recently earned a second degree, and last month started a dream job. I landed a job I’m incredibly happy doing back in December. We have been holding out to move in Philadelphia until Chris started working, and two weeks ago found the PERFECT spot. We moved in two days later.
Being in the city has changed our entire way of life already. Our car is not a necessity. We have been using all of the amazing amenities our complex has to offer. Being closer to work has made life easier in so many ways. Going out with our friends in Center City is no longer a challenge. Our dogs are even happier with their bright new space. As the little family we are, we finally feeling settled.
Our new complex is based around art. Being very close to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Rodin Museum, Barnes Foundation, Franklin Institute we are in the heart of some of the most culture in the city. Each of our hallways are painted with murals. We have an art studio, along with an art gallery. Statues are everywhere. Everywhere I look is inspiration. I completely in my element.
We spent our second weekend relaxing by our new pool and enjoying local spots, running by the water, and hanging out with some friends.
Going out last night I decided to wear an outfit that was cool enough to beat the heat, and casual enough to fit the beer garden we were going to. The Levis I wore are my absolute favorite pair of jeans right now – you’ll see them this fall paired with chunky sweaters and sneakers or booties (I secretly can’t wait). I threw on a vintage cropped top I pulled years ago from my mom’s collection of 90′s clothes that happen to be trending now. My wedges were super comfortable and allowed me to walk around the city with ease. Shop my outfit below.
