Skirt: Gap

Tights: Modcloth

Holidays spent in the Philly always include a day of shopping around Rittenhouse Square.  I'm actually not much a shopper - or perhaps not much of a mall rat would be a better word for it (I loathe malls!), but there is something about city shopping that always gets me bubbling up with excitement and has me feeling quite energized.  With that being said, this part of Philly has the best Anthropologie I've ever been too - 4 stories, in an old building that looks like it was once a church or bank or something elegant like that.  Yep, it's hard to yank me out of that place.  Add in some other favorites like Lush, UO, etc. etc. and a trip to the patisserie to grab some french macarons and a hot chocolate and I could quite happily call it a very good day.

So with all that being said, here's wishing you a very good day darlings!

Love Bunches,


  1. i love the gatsby jumper! been wanting to get myself one, and you look lovely in it! xx

  2. I heart that you're holding a Lush bag-- I LOVE THEM!!! Are you excited for The Great Gatsby film to come out this year?!?!

  7. Your outfit is adorable! I love the matching bow and tights and that sweatshirt is so fun:) and a 4 level anthro in a beautiful building?! Sounds like heaven to me!!

  8. Sounds like a pretty lovely day!! I hate malls when they're super busy, I tend to hit them up on weird days and odd hours and find them much more enjoyable.
    This outfit is so awesome, I love the sweater and that skirt is great, it looks so cozy!

  9. Yes, there are some dangerous shopping destinations here!
    Can you believe I've never read or seen the Great Gatsby? I tried too once and got bored! : / I feel like a bad writer in saying that, haha, but it's true!

  10. I love it! I am so pumped to see the movie:) Also, ive been dying to try french macaroons. They're so cute and colorful. :)

  11. Oh, Marisa, this makes me so happy. How do I not own a Gatsby sweater? This is just too cute, especially with the boots. And that sounds like such a lovely day!

  12. Ahhh!! I MUST HAVE THAT SWEATER! It looks fabulous on you!

  14. I found your blog via Flock Together and I love it - you're so pretty and colorful! I can't wait for the Great Gatsby movie... it's one of my favorite books so it'll be fun to see it on the big screen. And I'm super jealous that you got to shop at Lush, everything there is so wonderful yet expensive!

  36. Love your style! www.adoramehitabel.blogspot.co.uk

  37. I am right there w/ you in loathing malls but we did LOVE looking at all the old buildings in Antwerp that the shops were in, which sounds like Philly. that little square is beautiful and goodness you are just the cutest every single day! I dont know how you manage to make a sweatshirt look so cute & i always mean to wear more bows like you!

  38. I can't imagine a 4-story Anthro, so many floors of temptation! Sounds like a fun day! I loathe the mall too but hitting up some stores in fun, old buildings sounds nice. Isn't Philly the headquarters for Anthro/UO? Another fun and chic look by you that I'm totally in love with :)

  39. I can't belive I didn't see this post, it's adorable!
