Philly Bloggers Style Florals



How gorgeous are these ladies in their floral attire? Earlier this month we got together in a trendy little neighborhood in Philadelphia called Northern Liberties for our monthly style shoot. This month, fellow PHL Bloggers and I styled our outfits based around florals. We found some pretty little floral murals at the end of the street behind Jerry's Bar, and it worked out like a match made in floral heaven. 

Keep reading to see everyone's outfit details & similar options.









Chelsea was new to our style shoot this month, and it was beyond a pleasure being able to add her to the group! Chelsea has a very bubbly style to match her personality. I like the way she added the bright pop of color with the yellow statement piece necklace. I would also like to add that this day was painfully cold and windy, so props to Chelsea (and Sarah and Susan and Melissa) for going sleeveless. 

I highly suggest taking a look at Chelsea's blog if you haven't already, she posts some great styling tips and outfit inspo!

Susan is a style shoot veteran and continues her streak of killin' it with this one. Susan's look was a little brighter than most of the others (which was strange because this shoot was for the start of Spring, and we're all wearing dark colors. Hmm). As we can see from this shoot and the last, Susan loves The Geisha House, and honestly, who doesn't? For Love And Lemons is definitely one of my favorite brands, and I'm really loving the ruffle detail at the neckline.

Melissa is also new to our monthly get-togethers, and I absolutely love the way she styled this off the shoulder dress from The Knot Sisters! I think it is so cool how her outfit matches so perfectly with her hair. I especially love that she chose to go for a bold lip, and the color works so well! The Skinny Affair is another blog I highly suggest taking a look at. Melissa has so many great styling tips as well as healthy life style advice and recipes. I know I'll definitely be reading up on all of that considering it's basically May and I still haven't started on my "summer bod".

So glad Sarah was able to make it back for round two! She paired two more of my favorite brands (Flynn Skye + Kelsi Dagger) and introduced me to something new (Sticks & Stones

E.M. never ever disappoints (as we can see). These jeans from ASOS are E V E R Y T H I N G and this top + earrings combo is giving me serious 60's vibes, which apparently is a style she's been loving recently. Also a big fan of this shoe game she's got goin' on. I mean, I shouldn't have expected anything less. E.M. has been one of my biggest inspirations becoming a blogger and it is beyond a pleasure getting to work with her and all these other kick-ass, stylish girl bosses.

I know I told you guys I would work on my faces, but you know how life gets. Things come up, other things get put on the back burner. One second, you're typing up last month's style shoot post, the next second, you turn around, and you're at next month's style shoot, making the same stupid faces you did last time. I sincerely promise, in time, I will get slightly better.

I usually wear this jumpsuit in the summer, but since this day was out of control freezing I decided to layer it up with this sheer black mock-neck top from Zara. These shoes are three thousand years old, I think I got them my first year of college, but they fit. I've really been wanting to expand my shoe collection, but my wallet's like "hahahhaaha" and my landlord walks in, and he's like "hahahhaaha" and then my part-time job calls and he's like "hahahhahahahahaaha", so basically, no. My shoe game will stay at the same mediocre level it is now until further notice.
