Oh look, I'm back! You will have to forgive me for the sporadic blogging, it's been a real crazy (busy!) time lately and I'm finding it more and more difficult to post anything worthy of your attention on here. These photos were taken by my hilarious dad (he visited me last weekend) in my new favorite place in the whole world: Adamstown, also known as Antiques Capital, USA. I dragged the poor guy through antique mall after antique mall and we saw a little bit of everything you could possibly imagine. I found all kinds of treasures (including a 1940's navy dress with white lace trim, a large painting of kittens, and a giant fake milkshake) and I'm already aching to go back. The weather is turning cold around these parts but I'm happy to get some use out of my warmer coats, like this fur trimmed number that I found for next to nothing in a thrift store in San Francisco. I'm definitely not used to this cold, cold air but I love any excuse to layer!

Loving that cardigan and coat combo.

Being able to crack out vintage coats and knits makes the bad weather (almost) worth it!

Looking good lady. I know you don't normally wear black but I think this color combo on you is fantastic. That cardigan is super dreamy and I love the t-straps. I'm glad you're Dad was able to come visit you. That must have been nice. The antique mall sounds drool worthy. Miss you!
XOXO

Isn't Adamstown amazing? I've been there twice, and I always feel like I could spend days and days wandering from one antique store to the next!

As always, gorgeous outfit, lady! That vintage sweater is totally the star in my opinion. It's the sort of sweater I dream of but never seem to find.

That bag reminds me of the floor in the Black Lodge! Want. You look adorable :) Can't wait to hear about more of your Philadelphia-area adventures; my fiance's family lives there, and I'm on the lookout of cool stuff to do when we go visit.
