Greetings from Philly! I’m on vacation this week (minus today where I’ll be working from home) visiting my family and catching up on some much needed rest.

Have a great week!

    Thanks Yvonne! To be honest, 'm more familiar with Boston than I am with Philly but it's my little sister's college turf. It's very walkable and I think you'd enjoy the shops here. 🙂

    Thanks Yi-chia! I'm not sure if I mentioned it outright before. It's been a while since I shared a vacation post of any sort I guess. 🙂 Have a great week.

    Thanks KC! Yay! Is it just me or a few loose threads keep on unraveling? I love the print and Vicky just told me that they came out with a skirt in the same print. 🙂
