I don't think I could possibly explain how much I love my internship and my life here in Philadelphia, so I think that I'll just leave it at that. I am so happy doing what I am doing right now.
Despite my efforts to look ruffly and cute every single day, the summer heat has me looking all disheveled by the time I get home in the evening, and I'm always too ashamed of my condition to take photos of my outfits after a long day's work.
I decided to just deal with it today and take a photo of my simple, yet fun outfit for this busy Thursday. There are a few little details that I quite enjoyed.
Wearing: Urban Outfitters blouse and skirt, Anthropologie silk sandals, Vintage brooch, Tiffany & Co. jewels
This morning the intern group had a wonderful in-store visit and presentation at Anthropologie. We learned all about the brand, business, and visual display concepts of the store. It was really lovely. Afterwards, we had a private shopping experience. I couldn't help but pick up these beautiful sandals, among other things. Immediately upon purchasing, I put them on for work. They really brightened up my outfit.
Here are a few closeups of things that I felt made this otherwise simple outfit a bit more special:
Brooch at the hip
This is my new Sabina purse that I've been toting around with me lately. It's everything that I have been looking for in a handbag: large enough to hold all of my necessities, lots of pockets, ruffly(of course), buttery soft black leather, and a removable cross-strap for when I'm a bicycle commuter again. I'm in love.
Oh, and I got a haircut last week! Take a look:
I quite like this new do'. It's a bit androgynous but I like it because its sort of like a geeky third-grade boy's haircut. But in a cute way. Not to mention, it keeps me cool in the Philadelphia sun. I promise my hair looks much prettier when I leave for work in the morning!
Let me know what you all think!
Oh, and I'm looking for some new style icons. Lately I've been a bit bored with my styling and want to find new, fun ways to utilize my clothes. If you have any style inspiration that you'd like to share, send it my way!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!
