Wilbur Chocolate Factory


photos by Tom b.

- Alexa Chung for Madewell sweater
- vintage button up shirt
- vintage 60s skirt
- Topshop boots
- vintage Coach purse

My plan for posting photos today was to show you my Halloween costume that I wore yesterday. That plan was thwarted by a freak snowstorm that dumped about 5 inches of heavy, wet, sticky snow all over the region. My costume wasn't as elaborate as last year's but I was still dressed up as a character from a movie. Perhaps I'll recreate it later this week and snap some photos so I don't want to give it away just yet. Do you have any guesses?

Earlier last week Tom and I stopped in Lititz by the Wilbur Chocolate factory and snapped these photos. You can tour the factory and visit a little gift shop where they sell all sorts of chocolaty treats but it was all closed when we were there. The smell of chocolate in the air was such a tease coming out of the factory! I didn't get a treat but there was a little vending machine selling food for the ducks so I figured I'd give them a treat.

Love the sweater! And now I'm hungry for Wilbur Buds, thanks! I grew up close to Hershey so it took a while for my husband (a Berks Co. native) to convince of Wilbur's superiority but he eventually succeeded.

Aw, I think the ducks really liked you, or at least the treats! You look darling as always. I adore your sweater.

I really adore the Madewell sweater its such a classic piece which can be paired with lots of different looks. I've been lucky enough to score some similar looking knits from my local charity shops and have been wearing them to death since the colder weather crept in.

Always find your photoshoots inspirational, so thankyou! x

i love this simple and pretty autumn look. being engulfed by the scent of chocolate and not being able to indulge would be torture for me!
