Meet... Tick Tock Vintage

We meet another wonderful blogger for our next installment of our Meet the Blogger series. This time we chat to Veronika  from Tick Tock Vintage. We love her effortless writing style, not to mention her covetable collection of gorgeous dresses! 
Read on to find out more about the girl behind the blog... 

Ok, first up who is Tick Tock Vintage?  
Well, I'm a 24 year old gal that lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I'm a third grade teacher at a school in north Philadelphia. I live with my husband, our three dogs (Oliver, Louie, and Henry), cat (Meow), and rabbit (Peter). I'm an avid runner and cyclist, and I love doing outdoor sports and activities. I also bake and work on sewing projects (mostly restyling thrift store finds). I like long hair, deep sea life, rural Pennsylvania, 1960's fashion, and bicycles.

How long have you been blogging, and what made you want start it in the first place
Before I started grad school, I worked a really awful job doing web analytics for a huge company. I absolutely hated it and the day seemed to drag on. Blogging gave me a way to pass the time!

What inspires your blog posts?
My outfit posts are inspired by all sorts of things: vintage advertisements, movies, my friends, other bloggers, whatever I find while thrifting, etc. I also post about Philadelphia a lot, since I really love the city. I try to feature parts of the city that might not get a ton of attention (like my neighborhood, East Passyunk, or Chestnut Hill). I also like to share random things that happen in my life, like meetups with Philadelphia Activity Club

How would you describe your style?
Scattered! I'm all over the place. I like super girly pastel vintage dresses, crazy shoes, bold and colorful
patterns, furry hats, and leather belts. I think I definitely dress with a vintage flair, I try to incorporate several modern pieces, or items from different decades to avoid looking like I'm on my way to a fancy dress party.

What three items can you not live without?
My denim jacket, brown peep-toe pumps, and any one of my vintage dresses.

What do you get up to when you're not blogging?
I spend a lot of time with friends and my husband, playing games or activities, eating together, or just enjoying Philadelphia. My pets also take a up a whole bunch of my time, too. School is also a huge priority for me, especially since I'm a first year teacher.

Tell us something no one else knows about you... 
Hmm. I hate swimming in bodies of water where I can't see the bottom. It freaks me out.

And lastly as we've just released our End of Summer issue, we want to know what's your favourite thing about this season? 
Aw, I can only pick one!? I love summer so much that it'd hard to choose! I guess my most favorite part of summer is that it stays light out much longer than in the winter. Darkness at 5pm is so depressing! I also love long bike rides, ice cream, beach trips, big slices of watermelon on the porch, and picnics.
