What I Wore // Olive and Orange

I spent my last day in Philly wandering around by myself a bit. I went for a comfy tank-and-jeans outfit to get through the day.

September Lists

I've decided to combine my lists into one monthly post — for a while I've been participating in the 12 Lists Project from Clear the Way and Chez Gillian, plus I recently got a copy of Moorea Seal's The 52 Lists Project. Rather than bombarding y'all with a million MySpace-bulletin-style lists, I figured it would be easier and a little more productive to put them in one column at the end of the month. And besides, it's a better opportunity for you to share your list projects with me in the comments! If you're following along with The 52 Lists Project or the 12 Lists Project, share your blog or Instagram links in the comments!

My Favorite Instagram Hashtags

Most of us have been using social media long enough to know the basics. Over the years, I've gone back and forth between limiting hashtag use to maximizing their potential. Here's a list of my favorite hashtags to use (and look to for inspiration!) and how I set up my phone and tablet to easily access this information.

What I Wore // Lace Up Bodysuit

Lace Up Bodysuit with a Leather Jacket - Mini Penny Blog
Lace up tops are my favorite trend for fall. For a night out in Philly, I wore this bodysuit with a pair of skinny jeans, leather jacket, and my favorite boots.

Randolph Street Market Choice for Charity

It's time for the 2015 Randolph Street Market Choice for Charity! Every year, I'm honored to be selected as a guest judge for the show. I give out ribbons for my favorite items and booths, and when those items sell, money is donated to a charity of my choice. Again, I've chosen Rape Victim Advocates (RVA). RVA is a non-profit in Chicago that helps rape victims at advocacy, counseling, and education. They do really fantastic work, and if you're so inclined, you can make a donation or attend volunteer training.

I selected five of my favorite pieces from the show. If you're in Chicago, be sure to check out the Randolph Street Market this weekend. Read more to see my selections.

You've Got Nail 54

I've been seeing ImPress nail sets lately at Walgreens and, while I like their designs, was hesitant about using a pre-glued manicure. My experience in the past with other brands had been less than stellar, but when ImPress offered to send over a few sets to try, I gave them a go.

What I Wore // Philly Fringe

My main goal whilst packing for this trip was comfort.  I wanted simple outfits that didn't take a lot of thought and could be easily converted with a leather jacket as the sun went down. For my first day in Philly, I went with a fringed tunic and my favorite boots.

What I Wore // The Green Vintage Slip

Green Vintage Slip Dress and Mini Hair Buns - Mini Penny Blog
I bought this vintage slip with full intention of wearing it as a loose, flowy, airy dress. I'd consider it a success. It's just barely opaque enough to get away with a lacey bra and a pair of bicycle shorts. It goes with my favorite boots, Converse, or a pair of kitten heels.

Favorite Fall Things

Woo! Far before the "I love fall" mentality became a thing to make fun of white girls about (seriously, what the hell?), autumn was cool. The best holidays, the best food, and the best weather. Winsor & Newton sent over a great color selection of their new Pigment Markers and I tested them out by writing out my favorite fall things. Spoiler alert: there are no Ugg boots.
