Pink and Tie-Dye





(White + Warren wrap scarf, Volcom tee, Tilly Boutique shorts, Sienna Ray bag)

This was one of my favorite days in Philadelphia. It was so relaxing. My sister, Dylana, and I walked all through Old City, one of the most beautiful areas I've ever seen. I love lazy days like these. We munched on Lorenzo's pizza and literally walked at a snails pace through the cemeteries and historical landmarks. There really is nothing better than hanging out with family. We can just have fun doing absolutely nothing and be totally content. We made our way through the gorgeous brick covered parks. The fallen leaves made the place look totally unreal and magical. I feel like I sort of blended in here with my simple, pastel colored look. It was very hot and humid, but this lightweight wrap was great for walking around the city. It kept me from getting burned under the sun, all while giving my simple tee and shorts look a little extra something. You know I'm a sucker for anything striped... but this one came with a tie-dye twist. Can't really get any better than that! This might just be one of my favorite ensembles for a weekend off duty. I love having little breaks from the crazy nyc lifestyle. Already looking forward to my next visit!

Jenny said...

I have been wearing a lot of wrapping scarf lately as well as the weather is so unstable, and the scarf is great as it is not just a great addiction to put on if there's chilly wind, but a great layer to top up an outfit as well!

BTW Natalie, thanks for the comment on my blog the other day, I have been following your blog for some time and it is great to see someone whose style I admire comments on my blog!

thank you!

You're so smart to cover up from the sun - it can be harsh on the skin. How cute are the heart pockets on your shorts - they really got my attention.

Love this simple outfit!
Especially the scarf's batik pattern looks great, somehow it reminds me of Indians (but fashion-conscious Indians, of course)...
Thanks for the inspiration !

This is so simple CA comfy! You look like you belong here near Venice beach or in Santa Monica in the sand making sand angels! I love the innocent pink shorts and way to toughen it up with the modern hippie tie dye top. The bag is truly special though. I miss Philly! I used to love our trips up there from VA in HS. Such a dope city! Enjoy your summer there.
