Penn Museum

Hello! Today, I decided to venture off campus and take advantage of the gorgeous weather. In the morning, my friend, Bri, and I headed to a cute little farmer's market in Manayunk. While there, I picked up some fresh fruits and vegetables and the cutest sunflower. Later, my friend, Britt, and I headed off to explore the Penn Museum. Britt took this photo outside of the museum right before we left. Today was definitely tiring but well worth it!

For my look, I slipped into my sunflower print dress and layered my oversize burgundy sweater over top of it. I love the way the layers of the sweater look with the tiered layers of the dress. I accessorized with a classic burgundy bag. Tan flatforms completed the look.

Camouflage & Acid Wash

Hello! It's really beginning to feel like fall and I couldn't be happier. Going outside to the gentle breeze of fall and the changing colors of leaves instantly brightens my day. Nothing makes me happier than fall does. Fall doesn't only bring about delightful weather but signals a fresh start and a chance to start anew.

For today's look, I donned my acid wash denim dress. This babydoll dress was a staple in my wardrobe this past spring/summer and I am not ready to push it into the back of my wardrobe. The acid wash pattern, breezy fit and short length of the dress make this dress absolutely irresistible in my eyes.  Instead of waiting to wear this dress, I plan on layering, layering, layering and keeping this dress in my fall wardrobe rotation for as long as possible.

I decided to combine the acid wash pattern of the dress with the camouflage print of this jacket. I love pairing different patterns together and love the way that these two prints subtly complement each other. The combination is somewhat reminiscent of the 90's and I can't get enough of it.

I slipped into a pair of opaque tights and threw on a pair of vintage loafers. This pair of vintage loafers has been hiding in my wardrobe for a while and when I spotted them on the shelf in my closet today, I knew that I had to pull them out. They are very classic and I love the almost preppy vibe that they give off. I thrifted these this summer for just $8 and they are probably one of my favorite finds of the entire summer.

Hello! Today, I debuted my new backpack that I received the other day courtesy of AttachaPack. AttachaPack sells customizable backpacks. They come in various different prints and colors and three different styles: the Henley, the Chase and the Tinsley. Finding your perfect backpack is typically very difficult but AttachaPack makes finding your perfect backpack easy as they allow you to design it yourself. 

I began to design my backpack by choosing the style. I went with the Henley backpack which features one medium size pocket. The Henley backpack retails for $49.99. For the base of the backpack, I selected a forest green color, ideal for autumn. For the pocket, I couldn't resist selecting the leopard print pocket. 

I am very pleased with the backpack I designed; the quality is incredible, I love how I was totally able to customize the backpack and the shipping was very quick. If you are in the market for a new backpack, I would definitely recommend checking out AttachaPack. The customizable feature gives the backpack a feeling of luxury. 

I styled the backpack with a neutral sunflower print dress to play up the leopard print on the back pocket. I layered the dress with a knit sweater and opaque tights to make the dress suitable for the fall weather. Black Doc Martens completed the look.
