This summer has been incredible. The past week alone was a wonderful whirlwind of exciting things for The Atelier, so I figured I'd do a little update/behind the scenes post over here and end my unintentional mini blogging hiatus...
Had the opportunity to stop by the new Calypso St. Barth store in Philly (more on that later) and have my own Pink Bag Moment. The store is absolutely gorgeous and the clothes fit like a dream. I'm obsessed with the store's décor & merchandising, and I picked out a gorgeous silk dress that I can't wait to wear.
We had our friends from out of town visit for the day so we played tourist in our own city. It was fun to visit a few historical & touristy places that we practically live on top of but rarely make it to. We stopped by the Liberty Bell (and the really cool pop-up beer garden across the street), Independence Hall, Pat's and Geno's, Love Park, The Franklin Fountain, and ended the day at a tiny little Italian Restaurant in South Philly. Basically, we did a mini food and landmark tour of Philadelphia and it was amazing. If you're ever looking visiting and looking for recommendations of what to do/eat/see/shop in Philly, drop me a line! :)
At the end of last week, I met up with one of the lovely editors at Philadelphia Magazine to chat over coffee at La Colombe (more on that later). And I couldn't be more excited to share that The Atelier made it into the August issue (pg. 44) of Philadelphia Magazine! My guy and I celebrated in the best possible way – with a cheese plate and rosé at one of my favorite restaurants, after picking up a few of the issues, of course. I've said it before, but there is nothing quite like seeing your name in print. A HUGE thank you to the wonderful editors over at Philly Mag!
For some R&R I hopped on the train and headed to the beach, where I spent a few days doing little but reading and sunbathing. It was amazing. I also finally subscribed to PORTER Magazine, and I can't wait for the fall issue.
July, you have been amazing. Has your summer felt like a whirlwind, too? Any exciting plans, trips, etc.? Spill!
Our favorite season has finally arrived, and we have been fully embracing the chillier days and cozy nights. When it comes to fall style, we ...
