Outfit: La Dolce Vita

It always seems like you find the hidden gems of your city right when you prepare to leave...or at least it seems that way to me. The longest I've ever lived anywhere consecutively is four years and my average is more like three. So, by the time I start to know where the good places to eat and shortcuts around the area, I'm on my way out. And even though I've lived in Lancaster city for a couple of years now I've only known about this sweet Italian bakery (where everything is made fresh in the morning) for a couple of weeks. Still, I'm savoring my last bites of the city and appreciating new and old favorite spots that I might never visit again...which sounded a lot less ominous in my head!



  1. This is such a charming post! Your little red shoes are perfect.

    Hugs, Bry


  2. Adorable outfit.
    I honestly think it takes a minimum of 3-4 years to really get to know an area. The longest I have lived anywhere in my life is 5 years and that was the most familiar I have ever been in particular location.

  3. nice shoes, though i think you fingers need something... like a bracelet or a ring?

  4. Would you think about doing a Favorite Places guide to Lancaster before you go? Born and raised here, but some of the spots you find for photos are new to me and very charming! (Obviously I can understand not wanting to pinpoint your location too much while you still live here, but perhaps before you move?) Thanks!

    1. I'll see what I can do! A favorites post would be great.

  5. This is such a lovely post, you're looking so cute and I'm in love with your shoes! :)

  6. Oh these little cakes look so delicious!!! And don't worry, you'll find lovely places in your new city too!

  7. Oh I love the skirt and the shoes, so cute! Plus the pastries look so sweet and tasty!!

  9. Hello Rebecca! Loved your look...was wondering if you could provide some tips on how to shoot pastries/food/anything when they're behind a glass case? I tried once but the photo ended up with horrible reflections and I couldn't even see what was in the case! Thanks so much :)

  10. @PuiYee, the pictures in this post were snapped by my friend Jon and to be honest, he snapped the ones inside the shop (of the sweets) on the fly--not much thought. Part of it is positioning yourself in front of the lights that are reflecting on the case/avoiding a lot of reflections. Other things to keep in mind: never use flash and a lower aperture (focus on the object you want to see and the rest blurs out to indistinct shapes). But it all depends on the glass case and the amount of lights/objects reflecting on it.

  11. Adore the colors of this outfit ~ the forest green bow, and the cherry red shoes, so lovely! ❤
