{blogger meetup} Girls + Food + Shopping

This past Sunday I went to another blogger meetup, this time with Lydia, Courtney and Christine! I had already met Lydia and Courtney but this was my first meeting with Christine and she is awesome! We met up in Milford at Stonebridge Restaurant (which is literally 5 minutes from my house) for brunch.  I had a delicious plate of French toast and the other girls had some form of eggs. After we were fed and watered we headed to my house so we could walk to the beach and take our group and outfit photos!  That was easier said than done, as it was SUPER windy. Our hair was blowing everywhere as was the sand, but it was fun and we all enjoyed ourselves.  I just love blogger meetups, I'm always nervous beforehand because I'm so shy, but I loosen up and enjoy myself pretty quickly. So here we go with our photos, as you can see we all look pretty amazing!
[me, Lydia, Courtney, Christine]

Courtney: Shorts: H&M, Tights: Target, Top: ModCloth, Cardigan: Urban Outfitters, Boots: Aldo, Cuffs: F21, Jacket: Urban Outfitters, Purse: UO
Christine: Coat: American Eagle, Cardigan: Banana Republic, Blouse: BCBG, Jeans: F21, Boots: Rosegold, Bag: H&M, Scarf: thrifted, Sunglasses: gift
Lydia: Striped Top: Old Navy, Coral Jeans: TJ Maxx, Moto Jacket: Express, Booties: Madden Girl, Clutch: Zara Jewelry: Towne & Reese, Taken for Granite, House of Harlow, Kie & Kate, Anjolee, Sunglasses: Halston

My outfit: Jeans: Free People (Marshalls) $30, Sweater: Tahari (TJ Maxx) $20, Tank: Forever 21, Wedges: R2 (DSW) $35, Bag: Chanel, Bracelets c/o 31 Bits, Alligator Pin: Laila Rowe, Coat: DKNY, Watch: Michael Kors, Sunglasses:  Marc by Marc Jacobs Shopbop gift card

Here are some more details of my outfit, this is a blog about my style after-all. ;)  I feel very exposed on top in this outfit (and I'm not even exposed), I'm not used to wearing such low cut tank tops with nothing over them...you all know how I'm always covered up, ha ha.


After photo taking we headed to Plato's Closet where I found an amazing pair of leopard flats that I used to have but loved too much and ruined them. I was going to buy them, because they were only $14, but I resisted and let Courtney have them ;) Then we went to Marshalls. I bought 2 things that are slightly too big but I don't care, they were too good to pass up. I got an amazing Michael Kors skirt for $10 (regular $80) and gorgeous Franco Sarto maroon boots for $15 (regular $80?). The boots are a size 9 and I'm usually an 8 or 8.5 but I'll just stuff something in the toes and they'll be fine. Theoretically the skirt should have been too small or just right (since it was a 2) but it was a little big...so weird!
Christine, the amazing woman that she is, brought us all little gift bags with some handmade items and other fun things! How weird is it that I got a cute knitted owl?! She didn't even know I was obsessed with them, woo! You can buy your own owl, or many other adorable items at Christine's Etsy!

And here are two amusing photos to demonstrate the wind and craziness that ensued while taking these photos.
Photos by me, Lydia and Courtney!

    I also [finally] got caught up on your blog. I'm smitten with your alligator pin. It does look perfect on your coat.
