Philly has no shortage of great city-centric blogs. Some of my favorites are the style blogs, which maybe, just maybe, are helping me hone my fashion sense a bit. I wanted to give a highlight of those that have made it into my Google Reader and which I now read religiously.
1. Streets and Stripes: A fashion and lifestyle blog authored by freelance photographer and editor Chaucee Stillman that’s geared towards young, creative, and culturally aware readers. Lots of photos of Chaucee’s great personal style, other beautiful Philadelphians, and photo shoots in some of the city’s lovely boutiques.

My love note: Ever since I stepped onto the fresh, green turf on UPenn’s campus, I knew that I was in the midst of something special. I began playing co-ed, recreational soccer with Philadelphia Sports Network, and fell in love with the group of friends I’ve met through the league as well as the amazing way I’m able to begin a fresh new week. With night games every Sunday night, the build-up of a week’s worth of stress is able to disappear for an hour as I focus on playing futbol right under the beauty of a sunset touching Philadelphia’s skyline. I’m able to feel like a kid again and get back to basics with a great group of local Philadelphians on the Penn Park turf.
