I’m in love with this man-repeller of a frock—isn’t it darling? I have wide hips and tend to stay away from anything with a drop waist because of it but I just couldn’t say no to this little number. It’s bright and fun, so I paired it with sleek black accessories to keep the look more on the modern side.

I love Sundays in Philly, they’re often filled with kismet and adventure. (At least for me.) I want to the farmer’s market in the hopes of finding oysters and fresh pasta (both were sold out… not waiting until 40 minutes before it closes next time!) and ended up at Bloomsday, a charming café that just opened a few weeks ago. It looked cute from the outside and I was craving some Sunday afternoon libations. Once seated, a friend I hadn’t seen in a while because she moved away snuck up and surprised me. We got to talking, and it turns out that she moved back and has been laying low the last few weeks. See? Kismet. A Reconnection and a Venetian Style. (Think: mimosa, but with honeydew juice instead of orange juice.)

Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, I walked into hers. Here’s to more Sundays like this one.

xo, e.m.
