This weekend we escaped to Philly for a quick trip to visit friends and explore. (Chris and I love exploring cities together, as you may remember from our first post.) We spent most of our time in the heart of Center City, roaming around Rittenhouse Square.

The photos were taken before brunch on some quaint side streets. Since it was just above 50 degrees I was able to ditch my parka and stroll around in a blazer.  I kept my look casual with an oversized button down.

We enjoyed a nice brunch at the Fitler Dining Room, a cute spot with comfort food and drinks.  After brunch we walked through the farmers’ market at Rittenhouse Square and were thrilled to stumble upon our favorite chocolate stand, John and Kira’s.

John and Kira’s is local to the Philly area and makes some of best chocolates we’ve ever had.  They also are beautifully decorated and come in fun designs, such as hand-painted bees, ladybugs, and flowers. Chris sampled a minty white-chocolate winter truffle. We left with 3 praline ladybugs that we’re going to get into this week.   -Allie
