Green Spaces of Northern Liberties

 With all of the development happening in Northern Liberties, I find myself looking for ways to escape the construction. Embrace the beauty at Liberty Lands with the flowers in full bloom. They are stunning!

Nolibs Love: Cafe Chismosa

 Cafe Chismosa is located  on the corner of 4th and Poplar in Northern Liberties. If you're in need of a quick cup of coffee or a delicious Cuban sandwich, this is the place to go. Not to mention, is it one of the few BYOB's left in Nolibs. 

This is one of my go to weekend spots, if you have a sweet tooth try the affogato.

Boutique Spotlight: Style Camp

 8433 Germantown Ave
STYLE CAMP is a shop in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood of Philadelphia, owned and curated by mother and daughter Bitsy and Natalie Rhoda.

As I was arriving in Chestnut Hill, the windy and woodsy Lincoln Drive gave me a feeling reminiscent of going to summer camp!  I had the best shopping experience thanks to Bitsy and Natalie, they make such a great team. The shop is aesthetically pleasing from the flower boxes outside to the adorable fitting rooms. I left with a couple of summer wardrobe staples officially making me a happy Style Camper!

We're Keeping Our Blog!

It has been too hard for Ali and me to say good bye to Arcadia Boutique completely so we've decided to keep the blog and instagram going! We would like to keep you in touch with all our favorite local artists that we've carried at Arcadia. The blog will let you know what other boutiques will continue to carry their amazing designs, and a look behind the scenes with the talented designers that we've built relationships with. 

We both share a love for everything local especially fashion and food! Whether it's blogging about our favorite pair of shoes from Bus Stop Boutique or a delicious new salad from Cafe Lamaude, we hope you will all stay tuned as we continue our journey after closing the shop.
