Philadelphia Birthday Trip Recap

I’m still trying to find the words to write this post. If you follow me on social media, you know I spent the weekend in Philadelphia for my 23rd birthday! 

(As usual, outfit details and locations will be linked below at the end of this post.) 

I want to start by saying I have the best boyfriend in the world. I am so thankful for this trip Niels took me on, and it truly was the greatest birthday present. He works hard everyday at his job, so when he does things like this...it is so so special to me. 

The past few months have also been some big ones for me. As I’ve been wrapping up undergrad, and working on some huge projects, I’ve been feeling very burnt out. This trip was everything I needed and more, for so many reasons I can’t even begin to describe...

We started the trip off on Friday evening, and we checked into our hotel at City Center! The drive was only about three hours from DC+, and it went by really quickly with an embarrassing 90’s playlist. I had never been to Philadelphia before, and I honestly had no idea what to expect. The people were so friendly, and the city was gorgeous. We stayed at the Embassy Suites, and it was so beautiful and modern compared to other Embassy’s I’ve been to in the past.
