TSOCxBusStop

This post is long overdue but I bring it to you in collaboration with Bus Stop Boutique-

It’s no secret that I quickly became obsessed with the brand,as you can probably tell from my Instagram feed, when I connected with Elena, the owner.

Speaking of Instagram that’s actually how I found these new favorite shoes of mine; I was just sitting there scrolling through the feed like I do on any typical day and I came across the most stylish oxfords I had seen – I hadn’t even realized they were right here in Philadelphia when I gave them the double tap.

I quickly set up a time to head into the store and to no surprise I was obsessed! Obviously with the shoes- but with Elena and her whole boutique too! I was partially tempted to keep this little gem of a spot a secret to my own little community because I love finding different and unique things that not everyone has but Philadelphia is the ‘City of Brotherly Love’ so I decided to share the wealth.

So, I originally fell in love with a different pair from the ‘Element ll’ collection – the ones I had first seen on my Instagram feed. When I went into the store they were all lined up and I just kept liking the one color combination better than the next….until….Elena showed me the pair sitting on their own little pedestal. No, I LITERALLY gasped!

The ‘positive negative’ she calls them –this sharp looking black and white oxford …as if it couldn’t get any more chic …they are,in fact, the positive and negative of each other essentially making it appear as if you have two different shoes on …and let me just tell you I was absolutely obsessed with the concept (hence liking to have ‘different’ things than everyone else)

I love everything black and white, naturally because it goes with everything but also because it’s timeless, chic and never going out of style!

I’ve been contemplating back-and-forth with the next color combo I will be snagging- always been a fan of the muted earthy neutrals…which was actually the inspiration behind this line.

Next time you’re in Philly make sure you pop in to BusStop – or give them a follow on Instagram I’m sure you’ll quickly become obsessed like I did!

Bridal Shower

This past weekend we celebrated my Bridal shower at Terrain in Glen Mills PA – for those of you that are not familiar with Terrain its a beautiful venue space that can be used for special events or even small weddings. They also have a store and cafe attached both of which are my favorites.

When talk started of where I might want my shower Terrain was definitely my first pick! My sisters and bridesmaids completely blew me away with every detail of how they made my shower come alive!

Although I knew about my shower, there were many surprise elements. My favorite surprise was the ‘tea party’ theme where everyone was asked to either wear a fun hat or fascinator– of course my sisters ordered several for me to choose from!

I knew I wanted to go a different route for my shower than the typical white dress– I’m so glad I did! I loved it and it was a huge hit- MANY of you DM’d me for details so here it is along with ten other contenders I looked at here

Our engagement has been almost a year and a half already but in just 6 weeks I will be Mrs. Ace-we are so ready !

  

‘The Jacklyn’, Tesoro Leather X TSOC

Check out the ‘Jacklyn’ bag here…use code ‘threesisters’ for 10% anything on their site!

Here she is! Super excited about this secret I’ve been keeping! I’ve collaborated with Tesoro Leather, in West Chester, PA, to bring you a versatile bag that fits both the Tesoro and TSOC brand.

Collaborating with Brit and Emily has been very inspiring for me- not only because I love their work and was extremely flattered that they wanted to work with me but also because they are total #girlbosses that have built their brand from the ground up – from blood, sweat, determination, and passion. I knew from my first cup of coffee with them that I wanted to be speck in their story.

The ‘Jacklyn’ derives from their ‘Kate’ backpack… but I have chosen a lighter grey and white palette that you won’t find in Tesoro’s current line- which helps to keep the ‘Jacklyn’ true to TSOC brand!

What’s so lovable about this bag is that it can be worn FOUR different ways…

Backpack…

Tote…

Shoulder Bag…

Crossbody…

My favorite way to wear the bag is probably as a backpack but love that I can change up the style of bag depending on my outfit choice! The main section is super spacious – can fit a laptop and a few notebooks-or- a makeup bag, magazines and must haves for a flight. The two front white pockets makes access to your most essentials super easy and organized– and the gold hardware is chic a bold against the cooler grey tones.

athleisure wear with new balance 247 sports

The athleisure wear trend is taking over Instagram and city streets by storm. In fact, I think it may even be the trend we look back on much like shoulder pads, MC Hammer pants, and windbreakers.

I for one am a huge fan- its comfortable and can take you throughout your day from running errands, shopping, lunch with friends to a late night movie. And- with so many brands getting on board with the trend the options are becoming cuter and cuter. (Cont…)

To go along with these sporty threads you needs the perfect shoe. As you have probably noticed by now I have a bit of a shoe addiction. Although the athleisure trend lends its hand to many shoe options I personally have a deep love for sneakers and a bit of a collection. Since  I like to keep my active wear to predominately black- i definitely like to take more of a risk with my sneaker colors. The New Balance 247 sports totally caught my eye in this bright orange color!

Okay- disclaimer- eight times out of ten I actually buy boys sneakers- their sizes are comparable to women’s (usually I sized down two sizes) and I find that I like the color selection better. Pink is definitely not my go to color and I just feel like many woman options include pink– (cont…)

These New Balance 247 Sport are super comfortable and lightweight with neoprene sock construction I love that I can wear them with my athletic looks but I also love them with my skinny jeans, oversized sweater, leather backpack an latte in hand #lifein247
