I'm back from another mini getaway! This time, I took the train down to Philly for the weekend to visit some friends and, after tucking into a Philly cheesesteak on Friday night (with cheez whiz, natch), we headed to the Magic Gardens on Saturday.
If you've never been, the Magic Gardens is best described as a crazy courtyard chock full of mosaics and artwork by artist Isaiah Zargar. It is most definitely magical, and I went a little crazy snapping photos of the super cool space, which, at a $7 adult admission, was cheaper than my cheesesteak dinner!
Because I planned on doing plenty of sightseeing, I wore my broken-in $1 Dolce Vita sandals scored at Cure Thrift Shop (Gilt is currently selling the same pair for $35), and my pleated blue maxi skirt, found at a flea market for under $5. Maxis are definitely one of my go-to summer travel items--they're comfy, easy to wear and transition well from day to night, meaning you can pack a little lighter. I topped off the look with a white lace tank ($1.50, from Housing Works' Buy The Bag sale, bringing the whole weekend outfit to under $8.
