I Woke Up Like This... in Philly

11:00 AM

Sweater - Kitson/Private Party
Leggings - Lululemon
Booties - New Look
Bag - Longchamp
Scarf - Honestly... a random rest stop at least a decade ago, I think?
Sunglasses - Buffalo Exchange (and they don't say where they're originally from)

I'm normally not traveling this much, but this weekend, one of my best friends and I went to Philadelphia for the weekend to go to James Bay's concert at the Fillmore on Friday! I went to inner city Philly for a week every summer throughout high school, but I hadn't been back to the rest of Philly since my fifth grade school trip, so it was like visiting for the first time.

I knew how close Philly was, but I didn't realize how quick the drive was -- just an hour and a half! -- until we drove over Friday morning. Getting up on Friday was a bit of a struggle because we had tickets to VH1 Big Music in 2015: You Oughta Know for Thursday night. It was an incredible show from Tori Kelly to James Bay to Mel B hosting, but because it was a two-hour live TV taping, we were there hours before the taping started and didn't get home till after midnight... and I still hadn't packed.

Because of that, I was in no mood to try and get dressed, especially when I knew I'd be sitting in a car for a couple hours, when I woke up the next morning. I wore my trusty Lulus with my favorite Beyonce-inspired sweatshirt, which went with my mood, for an all-black emsemble to try and appear somewhat put together, despite my lack of sleep and effort. It worked perfectly for a mini road trip and some sightseeing before the concert!
