Stylin’ Out: When 7 Style Bloggers Brunch

Welcome to another edition of Stylin’ Out. This one is special because it features some really amazing style bloggers, all based in the Philadelphia area. Other than this meet up being an excuse to drink wine before noon, it was a good opportunity to shoot some great photos and catch up with one another.

When 7 Style Bloggers Brunch | GENTLEMAN WITHIN


It’s spring, but feeling like summer this past week. Summers in Philadelphia are hellish. 90-100 degree heat with unrelenting humidity is commonplace. Thankfully we’re not there yet. A few weeks ago when we all met up for brunch, it was warm, but I was fine with the layers, minus the jacket of course. Guess I wasn’t ready to shed the layers just yet.

It’s brunch, so nothing too fancy is needed nor mandatory. I decided to keep things casual in jeans and sneakers. Up top I opted for a long sleeved breton striped shirt layered over a chambray button down. I like stripes for spring and chambray is one of my go-to fabrics when the temps begin to rise. Overall it’s a stylish, layered look that leans casual and is optimal for cooler spring days.

The group wanted to pick a place no one’s been to and so we landed on Butcher Bar in Philly, a new spot for meat lovers and comfort food seekers. There’s also a bar with 16 beers on tap, 6 draft wines, and whiskey based cocktails. All in all, the consensus was that the food was pretty good!

I kept things casual for this brunch with bloggers. I’m not opposed to layering even during the spring, summer months if the weather calls for it. It was warmer than I had expected, but I was still casually comfortable.

This concludes a special edition of Stylin’ Out.

I had a great time meeting up with my fellow style bloggers. Someone coined it a “judgement free zone,” and it was. We commiserated over blogging struggles and offered each other advice and support. All the positive energy was inspiring to me.

I have mutual respect for anyone who blogs because I know the amount of time and effort that goes into creating quality content on a consistent basis. Growing a blog and a brand from scratch is not an easy journey, but it’s a shared journey that we’re all on together and so we get it and we get each other. Real recognize real.

So yeah, the group plans for monthly, themed photoshoots. I hear the next one is slated for Penn’s Landing at a roller rink overlooking the Delaware River. It’s quite scenic there and I’m hoping to make it out. But with summer rapidly approaching, it’s not always easy to find the time. We shall see!

I’ll catch you on the next edition.

Stylishly yours,

Special thanks goes out to Julia Dent, Founder of Philly With A Fjallraven for taking all the amazing photos.
