A Wedding Weekend In Philadelphia

My brother got married over the weekend! I couldn’t be happier for my brother and his wife, she is the perfect fit for him and fits perfectly in our family. The weekend started Thursday with the rehearsal, then the rehearsal dinner at Positano Coast.You can find similar styles to the outfit I wore Thursday at the end of this post. 

Friday we had a little pizza party which is where I was headed to in this outfit. Earlier in the day I tried on a bridesmaid dress at BHLDN for my friends wedding next summer and when I was done a did a little shopping. There is no sales tax while shopping in PA so I save my shopping if I know I’ll be visiting my brother! Plus some of my favorite stores are in Philadelphia. Including Intermix, Zara and Barneys. Other big cities have these stores also but they are so spread out, in Philadelphia all these shops are within two blocks!

Our hotel was across the street from the Basilica where the wedding took place. This building is gorgeous. It’s open to the public so if you are ever in Philadelphia you should definitely poke your head in and take a look around. 

The Breakdown:

I made sure not to pack too much with the hopes I would have time to buy a couple things. I packed the jeans I am wearing because don’t like to travel without them. I have them in white too (worn here, here and here)! I bought this Zara top which I can’t find online anywhere. The Philly store had a few in the store so if you want to top try looking for it in person (I am wearing a medium). I also bought these shoes. These are more of a splurge but they are very comfortable and easy to walk in. I love a stacked heel because I feel dressed up but practical if I have my son with me. How do you guys feel about wearing loose bottoms and a loose top? I use to feel like I had to mix and match, either tight skinny jeans and a loose top or loose jeans and a fitted top. For some reason I am into the relaxed look but I’m not sure it’s the most flattering?
