The Most Comfortable Plaid Pants Ever

Plaid has always been a Fall/Winter staple. But this season, plaid pants in particular are extremely popular among fashion brands and bloggers alike. Can you blame them? Plaid pants are playful, eye-catching, and flattering! Take these Rolled Up Hem Plaid Pants for example. These bad boys scored compliments left and right when I wore them last weekend. The best part about these pants though is that they’re insanely comfortable. I wore them while I enjoyed a massive brunch at Louie Louie (check out my Insta Highlight of my experience) and then to walk around Philadelphia and lastly, while I was being a couch potato later that night. They’re so comfortable I spent the whole day in them with no complaints. I’m wearing a size small here for size reference. And I think it’ll make you happy to hear that these pants are only $17! So jump on them before they sell out. Linking up some other plaid pieces below for your enjoyment. Oh and also, this Ce La Vie Hoodie I’m wearing (size S) is only $11. You’re welcome!

Taking On The Leopard Print Trend - Yay or Nay?

Leopard print shoes have been a hot trend this fall season. Actually, animal print apparel in general is popping up everywhere! I decided to try out this trend with the help of my friends over at Restricted Shoes and their super cute loafers, the Myria in Camel. While styling these shoes, I learned that leopard print goes best with with the basics - white, black, grey, and denim. Because the leopard print is already making quite the statement, it’s best to keep the rest of the outfit simple. Therefore, I paired these beauties with my favorite jeans and a white button down. Due to the print’s color scheme, it also helps to pair the outfit with some black and gold accessories, like this Kate Spade bag for example! Lastly, to contrast the warm tones of the print, I’m sporting this light grey J.Crew Factory coat (which by the way is on sale right now!). All in all, I’m a fan of the leopard print trend that’s been going on but I prefer to keep it as simple as possible. I’m linking up a lots of other animal print pieces for you to shop below in case you’re interested. But, if you’re like me and just want to dip your toes in (figuratively and literally), I highly suggest purchasing the Myria in Camel to start off with. The Myria features just the right amount of leopard print so that it makes a statement without being in your face about it. Additionally, these flats are both comfortable and affordable.

A Wedding Guest Dress That Works For Any Time Of The Year

People typically think of “wedding season” as during the summer, but you come to a time in your life when there are weddings left and right throughout the entire year. I’m currently hitting that age when all my friends/relatives are getting hitched. And for that reason, I’ve been on the look out for wedding-guest dresses! I recently struggled with wanting to wear a certain dress to a summer wedding, but was held back by the fact that it was “too-autumn-y.” With this dress, I don’t have to worry about any of that because the nude hue makes this piece perfect for any time of the year. When I laid my eyes on the Sophia Dress in Hazelnut, by Neroli Anonyme, I had to absolutely had to have it! It’s comfortable, conservative, flattering, and most importantly extremely versatile. So if you too are in the market for wedding-guest dresses then be sure to check out Neroli Anonyme’s entire Awake Collection, because it’s got the perfect collection of classy and stylish formal-wear.

Planning A Private Party In Philly? Check Out Wax + Wine!

Last week my friends and I booked a private party with Wax + Wine to celebrate the birthday of our good friend, Marie-Elena. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Wax + Wine, it's a candle bar located in downtown Philadelphia, where you can create your very own candle while enjoying BOY wine.

Upon arrival, Jordan, the owner of Wax + Wine, escorted us to the private room and introduced us to the process of candle making. Jordan and his co-worker Robby were both charismatic and welcoming, which set the tone for a lovely night! During Jordan's informative introduction, we enjoyed the wine and snacks that we had brought with us. After getting settled, we spent some time in the "cellar," smelling and picking out our favorite scents. This was by far my favorite part! My friends and I all helped each other decide on the best combinations of scents for each of our candles. We then picked out our containers and made our way back to the private room to start our creations. We stirred our scents together and took turns measuring/pouring the hot wax. While we waited for Jordan to cool our candles, the girls and I explored their products in the main room and continued drinking our wine. After some time, we made our way back to the back room so that we could sing Marie-Elena Happy Birthday and enjoy some decadent cake. Once our candles were ready, Jordan and Robby packaged them up in boxes/gift bags. And before we left, Jordan gave us a chance to win some free products via a trivia game. He also generously provided a free gift to the birthday girl! By the end, we all walked away with two beautiful candles, knowledge of the candle making process, full stomachs, and a memorable experience. Everyone agreed that it was even more fun than we had expected! 

If you're interested in booking a private event, simply visit the "Contact Us" page on the Wax + Wine website to get in touch with one of their event coordinators. By the way, Wax + Wine is not just for private events -- make a reservation with a friend or two for a fun night out, or come by yourself and make a candle as a gift for someone. They offer three different packages to choose from which you can find by clicking here!

5 Ways A Throw Blanket Can Liven Up Your Dorm

It's move-in time again! As a Residential Advisor for undergraduates in a University of Pennsylvania dorm, I'm all too familiar with this crazy time of the year. I also know how cold a dorm room can feel when first moving in. So with the help of my friend Clara, the boss lady behind Villager, and her gorgeous throw blanket, I've brainstormed a quick list of 5 ways that you can use a throw blanket to spice up your living space. Hope it helps! By the way, be sure to check out the rest of the Villager throw blanket collection. Bill and I have been using ours for the past two weeks and we love it! The quality of the material and tight stitching is impeccable. You won't be disappointed!
