Plane Spotter II

Outfit Details: Blouse: Forever 21 (very old) // Shorts: Thrifed & DIYed // Hat & Socks: UO // Necklace: Gift from mom // Shoes: Gift

This past weekend, the hubs and I hit the road for yet another trip to Philly, to catch a ball game with a good friend and do a little exploring on the side.  Our friend is a professional photographer, and a pretty stellar one at that, so naturally we took him by one of our favorite spots to take in the scenery and snap just a few pics.  I've written about this little spot before - better known as Plane Spotter's Place.  It's a wee nook right beyond the airport where you can sit on the waterside and watch the planes fly very low overhead.  Of course it's near and dear to my heart because it holds memories of summer's past, laying, talking, and dreaming on the hood of the car with the dapper fellow who later became my husband.

On a side note, obviously this outfit is a far cry from my normal vintage dress get-up - which I will admit is much more me.  But 90s degrees and 100% humidity call for shorts at times and so do ball games :)  

Thus concluded another successfully weekend in the city.  Oh yeah, and the Phillies won! - Ok, not that you probably care that much, but still :)  I'm not an athlete by an means, but I do like a good game every now and then.  

What fun have you been up to darlings?

Love Bunches, 


  1. I'm like you--I like a good game, but I don't get toooo into it. Which is probably strange to most since I live in the South and go to a football college and all... oh well! ;)

    These are such nice pictures. The one holding hands is just too cute! <3

    Thank you so much for following, too! <3<3 I'll definitely be back to visit ya. :D

    oh marisa that sounds so romantic to dream on the car roof with your future hubby!
    my future hubby asked me to go to a ball game for our anniversary (which is today!) I didn't think it was very romantic, so I suggested a picnic at a provincial park at the beach...much more my scene haha

  3. Gorgeous photos, such a scenic place to take them! I really need to go and find more interesting places for mine I think :p xx

  4. These photos are so cute! Love it :D
    I've never been to a big sports match! I keep saying I'll get to one but I don't hang out with a very sporty bunch, so finding someone to go with is difficult! Glad to hear you had fun though :) Rhi xx

  8. You were in Philly!?!?!? I live in Philly sister! University City to be exact (45th and Spruce). I probably passed by you too - I work in the Navy Yard for Urban Outfitters! The weirdest part of all is that I know exactly where Plane Spotter's Place is!
