Hello Philadelphia!

29 May 2011











Greetings from Philadelphia! Let me just say I already love this
city. We all know I love vintage clothing so naturally I would love a super
old city. The buildings are just so beautiful and in this particular street they
were charming as well. Anyways, my first day in the city was pretty crazy.
Basically I had an awful experience with the apartment I had so I am
on the search again. I was freaking out a bit yesterday but I think I woke up
on the right side of the bed today and I am staying positive. I met up with Dylana
from Color Me Nana yesterday for a bit and she was sooo sweet! She showed me around a few
lovely neighborhoods and kind of gave me piece of mind for my apartmentsearch.
Totally thankful for that and can't wait to hang out with this girl more!

PS- my relationship with heels might as well be over. With all the walking I'm going
to be doing in this city it will be super difficult. But I'd totally take walking everywhere
than driving in heels any day. I'll get used to it though :)

You can find a really cute tunic dress collection online with Joe Browns. This fashion retailer has a truly individual style. Have a great day!

Ruta, Look Ugly in a Photograph said...

I wish you lots of luck in finding a good apartment. Philadelphia looks like an amazing city, and I can't wait to see your outfit photos taken throughout the city.

Amazing skirt. I really want a skirt like that, but vintage ones are so hard to find, and AA ones are expensive. I might have to splurge though.

Sari said...

wow, this outfit is so lovely! I love the skirt and especially the top, beautiful! :)

In love with the color of your maxui skirt. I love how it contrasts with the brightness of your crochet top.

Adele said...

totally feeling you.. I hardly drive as I live only few blocks away from the city and uni . As much as I want to stroll in heels, I simply can't do it as much now.

Loving the outfit btw.. good luck with the apartment hunting Bonnie :)

Lara said...

I love Philly...and I can't say that I love all that many cities in the US. I have been to so many of them but, I love my Chicago so, to say I love another city must mean it is special! The history definitely makes the city.

Emma said...

glad you got there safely bonnie, philly does seem like a lovely place. loving the combo of red white and blue here. so sweet.

Emily Allison said...

what a fabulous outfit! your skirt is gorgeous and it looks stunning with the lace top!!

And I know just how you feel, I'm working in Brooklyn this summer and I've had to trade in most of my heels for flat sandals. Oh well, there's always the weekend!

Petulka said...

wow , I definitely love this !
you are so sweet , Bonnie !

Mandy said...

Aw, welcome to Philadelphia! I think you're going to love this city, especially the two H&Ms located in Rittenhouse literally about 2 blocks from each other. When I would visit my ex in Philly, I learned the hard way that flats are the only way to go when traipsing around. Good luck with the apartment search!

genevieve, sandbox romance said...

Love love love that top and lovely blue skirt! Good luck with the apartment search; I'm so jealous that you're in Philadelphia; I'm from twenty minutes outside the city, and I miss it terribly while I'm away at school. When you have some time, make sure to go to Capogiro's Artisan Gelato and the Di Bruno Brothers (they're both on Google). They're amazing!

Shanti Pranadi said...

You look beautiful as usual.. And good luck finding a new apartment :)
