{ Photo Diary } Almay’s #SimplyAmerican Tour Bus Visits Philly

This Independence Day I hopped on the Almay #SimplyAmerican tour bus for some pampering on the Parkway. I love my city. Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway turned into one of the biggest Fourth of July celebrations in the country called Wawa Welcome America. The all-day extravaganza, complete with music and food, was a pretty fun way to spend the holiday despite the weather being less than stellar.

{ Dare To Wear } Kimono + Double Denim

Like my kimono? It’s from one of my favorite people. My dear friend Kristen sent it to me all the way from Hawaii. Though she and I don’t like close to each other anymore (she’s based in LA but lived a few months in Hawaii earlier this year), but we still manage to swap clothes when we do get together, though this one was meant for me to keep. It came in the mail along with a cool coral necklace she made me, a bottle of black sand, a hair product made by a friend she met while living there, and of course a thoughtful note — she’s the cutest + I absolutely LOVED the care package she sent me!! So when I wear this kimono I think of my boho babe, Kristen.
