Nifty 50

Dress: Modcloth - Bday gift from the Mr.
Hat: Vintage, antique mall
Brooch: Gift from sister
Tights: Modcloth
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell

Another weekend spent in Philadelphia was just what the doctor ordered for this gal after weeks of feeling a bit of cabin fever and very snowed in here on my little mountainside in this small town.  So onto the city we went.

On this particular day, all I was craving was a milkshake - and not any old kind, but rather one of those fabulous homemade kinds with all the bells and whistles.  Of course I knew it was meant to be after reading posts from Katie and Hannah that talked about milkshakes and diner trips and all that delicious jazz.  So anyhoo, the Mr. and I ventured off in search of the perfect milkshake and that brought us back to Nifty Fifties - a kitschy little spot complete with a jukebox, the best milkshakes in town, and cheese fries to die for.  So that's indeed what we had.  Banana coconut custard was my flavor.  Score.  That's all I really needed.  I was in total state of bliss.  And I lived happily ever after.

Oh and afterwards, we went for a walk at a pretty little park by the water - to burn the calories from our indulgences of course ;-)

The end.

Love bunches darlings,


  1. Beautiful, beautiful combination :)
    Adore that dress with the house-pockets and those leggings..
