Weekend Getaway

You got a chance to see all the things that I go to do while I was in Philly with Grown & Curvy Woman, now you get the chance to see what I wore while enjoying my time away from home. While I was enjoying the Walking Tour, the weather was sunny but a little chilly. It was the perfect opportunity to wear some of my favorite pieces from Eloquii's fall collection. 

We had a little time while walking to take pictures in front of this massive, colorful mural.

While walking around, I all about wearing layers that can keep me at a good temperature. I can get hot easily so the worse thing I can do is wear a lot of layers while walking and get hot and sweaty to then take them all off. We all know when you play that game, you end up getting sick. I went with the Tie Waist Cape for my afternoon in Philly. I first got a chance to try on this coat over the summer when I visited the Eloquii team at their NYC office. It is great for those cool sunny days. The camel color pairs well with everything, and it has massive pockets to store all of your essentials. It kept me warm out in these Philly streets, and I was looking good while doing it. Can't ask for anything more. 

Keeping it cute and cozy!!!

Fall for me is all about sweater weather. I love me a good sweater. When the temps drop, I would feel as though you had to sacrifice warmth for looking good. I'm glad that is no longer the case. I Never one to shy away from ruffles, I wore the ruffle striped sweater with my favorite pants, the Kady. I love stripes, so in a sweater it was a must have in my closet. This sweater goes with anything in your closet. Definitely get this one!! I paired my sweater with my favorite pant: Kady. I never have owned a pair of pants in multiple colors. Most pants are either too long or do not come up high enough on my waist. Kady has my back....literally. I'm always on the look out for great flats, and these gold ones are wonderful. When it comes to flats, there are a lot that do not provide adequate support, but these wide width ones held up during my two hour walk around town. I definitely want to get these in another color, because finding a wide width shoe that looks good and doesn't rub. 

My Saturday in Philly was so much fun. Checking out the murals, had brunch, and just enjoyed the experience. There are times when I get so bogged down with my to do lists, and work that before I know it, months go by. The lists may never go away, but I am learning to be ok with taking time out to just enjoy life. 


Wearing head to toe print was always on a list of something not to do. Why would you want to call attention to yourself. I say why not? I'm at a point in my life where I will just give something a try and see what happens. When you are in the privacy of your home or in a fitting room, it's just you and the mirror. The worse thing, is that it doesn't look good, you take it off and go on with your life. When it looks good, you can do your happy dance and check another "fashion don't" off your list. 

As everyone knows, I am a big fan of the Kady pant. My biggest issue when shopping for pants is the fit. Either there is a problem with the length being too long, or it's not roomy enough in the thighs. These pants come in a myriad of colors, prints, and lengths to accommodate anyone. I do not know anyone that has a pair and does not like them. I have at least 4 pairs, and they have yet to let me down.


When it comes to dressing (especially for work) I like to look polished without much effort. If you want easy work attire, look into these pants. I decided to pair the leopard pants with the matching bow blouse. Going matchy matchy in this was comfortable for me because I stayed with neutrals. I originally was going to wear black pumps, but I wanted to try something and go with nude pumps. I was not big on nude pumps until I saw these from Sole Society. I like the crystal bow detail, which helps the shoe stand out. Even though the goal was to stick with neutrals, I wanted to have just a bit of color to tie it all together. Cobalt blue is one of those colors that compliments everything. Definitely going to try some more print combo's with more color in the future. What do you think lovers? Love it or leave it?
