As I pretty much expected, I didn’t post at all while romping through Philadelphia with Britt this past week. Any time we travel we spend so much time immersing ourselves into the cities we visit, seeing every site, sitting in every park and trekking through every neighborhood scouting out the best coffee, beer and/or food in the area. We spend SO much time in the thick of it, there’s never any time left or energy left for documentation. We try and take a good photo here and there but we just spend so much of our time living and being present, it’s easy to forget. I’ve always been interested in daily blogging or even vlogging but I have such difficulty reminding myself to document it all! So, I had some hopes of staying active on the blog while I was gone but alas, I am who I am!
While it’s great to be able to look back on your life through photos and videos, it’s also really important to experience the now. BE PRESENT! Stop worrying about instagramming every day or snapping every moment, just live. With that being said, I don’t have the most exciting content to share on this post, but regardless here’s another OCT-OOTD tourist-style!
- Navy blue American Apparel tennis skirt – I ended up wearing this nearly EVERY day and is quickly becoming a staple in my everyday wardrobe. Though we live in the mountains of North Carolina and have similar weather to the north, it was a bit chillier than expected when we first arrived in Philly and the weight of this skirt paired with basic black tights was perfect for the October chill.
- Thrifted denim jacket with my “crying at the party” Stay At Home Club patch. Pretty much my favorite jacket these days.
- DETECTED Skyrim t-shirt I snagged from an online shop over a year ago. The nerdiest t-shirt I own (not ashamed).
- Yellow Kanken mini backpack with my cute little lace-kitty keychain Britt got me in Amsterdam. A small backpack like this is essential for travel, it goes with me everywhere.
