Most photos above taken by Katherine.  Thanks lady!

This past Saturday, while I was back in my hometown, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Katherine of Of Corgis and Cocktails.   After numerous blog posts where Katherine and I literally took pictures at the same locations within days possibly even hours apart, I knew we just had to meet up at some point.   As all meet-ups go, Katherine was just as sweet and funny as I had thought she would be and conversation was never short as this Cincinnati girl had me laughing with her geek-tastic ways (she even showed me a thing or two about my dslr camera) and adorable stories about her dear pups .  

 Anyhow, it was quite a lovely evening filled with a trip to The Atomic Warehouse, a huge vintage store full of a quite impressive selection of vintage furniture, housewares, clothing, accessories, you name it and surprise surprise - we ran into another blogger there, Hope of Pink Champagne, who's boyfriend owns this midcentury heaven.  She was as sweet and as helpful as can be and the store was nothing but pure awesomeness so I highly recommend swinging by if you are in the Harrisburg area.   Better yet, I ended up walking away with a delightful toadstool printed dress and retro floral swimsuit.

So after that little stop we moseyed around the capitol building to grab a few photos and be watched by some passersby - always a treat, right?  The evening concluded with dinner at a local piano bar with fried caprese salad and all and of course I think it's safe to say we left there feeling quite satisfied.  I never gave much thought to Harrisburg growing up - it's quite a small city, especially for a state capital, but nonetheless, if you look hard enough you can find it's charm and have a great time exploring this little place...especially with a cool gal like Katherine :)  If you haven't become acquainted with Katherine's blog yet - you totally should, between her whimsical style, darling pups, and yummy recipes, it's utterly adorable!  You can check out her post on our day here.

Happy Tuesday darlings!  This week is going to be stuffed to capacity getting ready for my sister's bridal shower on Saturday.  My life will be nothing but cupcaking and craft making these next few days.  Wish me luck!  Talk soon!

Love Bunches,

  19. Meet-ups with fellow bloggers are so much fun! :P I only met one girl in Buenos Aires and we had a blast. I got to know a lot more Argentine bloggers once I moved to this country and can't wait to meet them when I go there to visit :p.

    LOVE your outfit, Marisa! How do you manage to always match every single piece so effectively? You should write blog posts with tips for ignorant people like me :/.

    Have an awesome day! ;D

  21. sounds like a lovely time, I need to meet up with more bloggers :p I absolutely love your blazer, so sad to hear it's vintage (although of course it's great that its one of a kind!) xxx

  22. It's kind of random to see you meeting up in the real world. Sometimes I feel like fashion bloggers are all in their separate worlds of magic with friends and photographs and then woa! Not only do you meet up you go and shop and meet another one! Plus they are all blogs I read :)This is probably just weird for me...

  23. Only you can wear these prints together...beautiful :)

  24. Hi, found your link from Katherine's blog! I LOVE seeing bloggers from Central PA!!! Holla! I used to not find any but I have been currently discovering lots!

  28. Harrisburg as in PA or elsewhere?
    I think Harrisburg is a very lovely town, but I haven't been there since I was about 10.
    I never went to this other blogger's blog before. The first thing I thought of though while looking at your pictures was "Spring up O Well, within my soul!"

  35. Oh my goodness. I need to raid your closet. You always look so cute and put together. I cant wait to see what kind of lovely things you wear in the fall! I sure love a lot of blogs, but I cant pull off some of the looks they wear, mainly because we have different body types. But I think you and I would be around the same height and size so I'll try to emulate some your looks (except I seriously cant pull off blazers...I've tried)!

  40. Blogger meet-ups... there is seriously nothing better! You and Katherine make such an adorable and stylish pair. I am swooning over both of your outfits, especially the colour of her dress and the way you so expertly mixed two floral prints. Oh, and your hat. I always, always love your unique headwear, I almost can't picture you without something on your head :)

  50. Wow - gorgeous photography! I also love your pattern-mixing florals. I am SO into pattern-mixing for Fall that I even wrote a blog post about it (http://retrogypsy.com/fall-trend-report-pattern-mixing/). Yup, a little bit obsessed.
