February Stitch Fix

fixer

Time for another FIX! And seriously, this {I think} is one of my best ones yet! I requested three of the pieces I got {1, 2 + 4 below} and the other two pieces were pleasant surprises! These pieces are flowy, comfortable, easy to dress up or down and things I can just wear every-day {for the most part} out and about with my littles. They are also great for the winter, but great pieces I can wear going into Spring and beyond as well! Ah! I sort of want to keep it all!

details

Check out what I got and please let me know what you think!

**********************

Market & Spruce Domi Overlap Hem Pullover Sweater {$58}

domi overlap

This I saw, I requested, I love. The cross-over hem is really different and I think the detail is awesome – you can totally wear it with jeans and keep it casual or dress it up with some fancy shoes and accessories! I love the classic black and the aztec print – this thing is so soft, feels like a sweatshirt! I love.

The only thing I am questioning is if it’s just a tad short? Its probably similar in length to what I would normally wear, but the cross-over part goes up a bit, makes me think its a little shorter than it seems. But other than that I love it, think its really different and unlike anything else in my closet!

Mavi Lemore off Shoulder Top {$54}

lemore top

This top, I saw and thought it was my style – when it arrived on my doorstep, SURPRISE! It totally is! I love the white {white and grey are my favorite colors}, I love the detail on the trim and the easy flow to it.

off shoulder

Off the shoulders is not something I usually go for, but I think it would be fun to wear in the Spring/Summer – preferably with a tan! Ha! Because this top is flowy it’s easy to wear for nursing – it’s also great to wear under pretty much anything, as you will see below. The only tiny thing I question is the straps on the top – what do you think about them?

Paradigma Gwenifer Kimono {$54}

gwenifer kimono

This top was an unexpected surprise, but one I am sort of loving. When I did a little sneak peak to see what was coming, I saw it and sort of decided against it. The picture didn’t do anything for me. BUT when I took it out of the box, that was a different story – the colors, the pattern, everything – I was impressed!

Also, it’s pretty much perfectly paired with the off-shoulder top.

kimono

The ONLY tiny thing about it is that I have a kimono from a previous fix {check that out here} – Do I need two?! Maybe! I am going on a tropical vacation in April so could be the perfect time to bust that out. But I also see myself wearing this a lot in the spring/summer months – What do you think?!

**********************

Brixon Ivy Lawley Cable Knit Open Cardigan {$68}

Saw this little number on another Fixer and was in love. Again, I don’t think the pictures do it justice at all. It’s thick, the cable knit detail is really pretty and it has this collar cuffed over into these massive pockets, which are awesome. I love the length and it’s really comfortable to wear, plus and easy piece to throw on that I feel like I look nice in.

rebel

Do I need another grey {my favorite color} sweater? Probably not.

Do I love this one. Yes, yes I do.

Looks cute over the off-shoulder top too, right?

RD Style Streeter Button Closure Detail Drape Cardigan {$88}

RD Style Drape Cardigan

Next up is another surprise that I {surprise!} enjoy! This drape cardigan – again, I saw it on the sneak peek and dismissed it, but when it arrived I was impressed with it’s beauty. I love the classic look, especially the neutral colors. Sort of burberry-esque, if you will. Not really my jam at the moment, but I do enjoy the print. Plus, I think this is another easy piece that I can wear, be comfortable and look put together in {even when I’m not-ha!}

wrap

Also, how cute is the button closure detail that give it this adorable wrap look? Again, paired over the off-shoulder top. I think it’s totally cute. Another added bonus, the cream color could work over multiple seasons. AH! This is such a hard one to decide about!

One Liberty Observation Deck Review / #PhillyFromTheTop Giveaway

So, I hope you had an amazing weekend! We had a blast exploring 3 new breweries + restaurants in the Fairmount hood – I shared some of our fun on Instagram. I love where we live in the city – and lots of new places to eat + drink popping up make me so happy!

from the top

Anyways, today I wanted to share with you a fun adventure we had last week! I had the opportunity to join some other local Philly bloggers and check out the new One Liberty Observation Deck! This was something that has been on my radar for a while now, I’ve been meaning to check it out ever since it opened, so I was pumped when I had the opportunity to see it with the boys, and bring my parents along as well!

trio

We got there a few minutes early and since they take groups up at specific times all together, we enjoyed a few escalator rides to pass the time – Brooks was clearly obsessed. What toddler doesn’t love a good escalator ride?!
tickt

After riding the escalator we made our way to pick up our tickets. The lovely PR team hooked us up with a little extra treat for the kids – a old school view finder with photos from the #viewfromthetop – it was a great little present to keep the kids entertained and a nice souvenir!

scope

While we waited to go up to the top, we checked out the gift shop – lots of great gift ideas!

Then it was time to make our way up to the top to the One Liberty Observation Deck. We started the experience off by Ben Franklin’s feet – the whole thing has a theme around good ‘ol Ben!

shoes

Next we took a elevator ride up 883 feet above street level to the 57th floor – it was a 75 second express  ride to the top. This is the tallest standing attraction in Philadelphia – within the iconic Helmut Jahn designed skyscraper that was the first building in Philadelphia to be taller than the statue of Willian Penn on City Hall in 1987.

When we went last Thursday, it wasn’t the clearest of days so I didn’t know what to expect – but I was blown away by the gorgeous views up on top, and just how far we were able to see in the distance. It was the perfect day to see the sights!

wowfar

Brooks {and my parents} were pretty impressed. The observation area is really gorgeous, the area is spacious and did I mention the views are pretty spectacular?!

gagaup

I’m not one for heights, but it was really cool to be up this high – I can only imagine how much more beautiful it will be, come spring when the trees are in bloom and everything is green, sunny and gorgeous!

new

These pictures seriously don’t do the day justice. Looks sort of gloomy, but it really wasn’t – very calming and great to take in the scenery! pointrivers

Another cool thing about the view from the top is there are all these awesome interactive spots that let you check out different views of different areas of the city. Brooks enjoyed moving that around! Ha!

mediacomcast

Seriously, the views?! You can see a 360 vantage point from all over Philadelphia, over the bridges to New Jersey down the river all the way to Delaware and pretty much as far as the eye can see!

water high

Remember the feet from down on the first floor? We found the rest of Ben Franklin up top!

Friday Favorites: Red for Love

Can’t decide what I like better for Valentine’s Day – red or pink. I used to be really into pink {back in the day} but now I think I tend to lean towards the more classic red. Either way, you can’t go wrong with either color – especially when it’s the day of LOVE!

Here are a few of my favorite red picks – I was feeling festive for Valentine’s Day which is just around the corner! Plus, everyone could use a little more fun red in their lives!

The Expressive Hand – Valentine’s Day Toddler Art Inspiration

So I know lots of people with littles are looking for fun + cute little art projects to do for the upcoming Valentine’s Day so I thought it would be fun to share a little art project Brooks did for Christmas.

paint

This is the second year we went to The Expressive Hand in South Philadelphia – check out my post + Brooks’ art from last year. I love spending a morning and letting Brooks go wild with paint, making special gifts for Gaga + Pops, Mimi + PopPop, along with all his aunts + uncles. I think it’s so special when a child can give a gift he made himself.

purple

Plus, Brooks is CLEARLY gifted in the art department. I mean, do you see those painting skills?

He makes a mean trivet.

And a meaner mess!

aftermath

The place we go to is local to Philly, but I’m sure if you google it you can easily find a art studio that does things like this for the kids. Plus, let’s be honest, everything with this big of a mess is way more fun when you don’t do it at home!

This is the second time we’ve done this and it’s been so much fun, plus a nice, personalized piece for family to display!
