- Fall must have: The Waistcoat
Fall is officially upon us and with that brings another Fall Must Have, the waistcoat. This particular pattern gem is under $100 dollars from Zara. Pair with a black dress and tights, or skinny jeans and a black blouse and you have a ready-to-wear outfit. The waistcoat, which often looks like a sleeveless jacket, is a trend popping up in stores from Forever 21 to Nordstrom, so whatever your budget make sure you grab one today!
- I hosted the Pope and National Guard this weekend.
The Pope came, I didn’t see him, but the two handsome National Guard’s on my corner were nice. Although there was quite the hype and a sense of fear in Philly for the Pope’s arrival, according to local reports, the World Meeting of Families actually went fairy well. He spoke at various locations throughout the city and 12 years of Catholic schooling later, I hosted a Pope party in Fishtown.
- Half Marathon torture, I mean training!
Every fall I tell myself I don’t have to run the Philly Half Marathon this year. Yet a week later, like clockwork, I lace my sneakers up and pull my body along for my first run of training. This year, as I approach my 11th half marathon, I am also training my boyfriend Mike. Mike has not consistently exercised since high school football at Saint Joe’s Prep six years ago so I am sure you can imagine the fun I have coming my way. Check back in next week as I will be posting a no-fail half marathon-training schedule for all you slow pokes out there like me.
