{outfit} Why Don't We Do it in the Road

  Tuesday, August 21, 2012 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,,,, 
As I mentioned yesterday, I went on a blogger date with Lydia and Amber on Saturday night in West Hartford! We headed to the Elbow Room, a fun restaurant with a rooftop bar, for dinner. Lydia and I arrived just in time for our reservation (there was traffic) but we ended up having another half hour wait to get a spot on the roof.

That happened to be just enough time for us to take some outfit photos across the street. We laughed, tried to walk while using the camera timer and had people stare at us like we were crazy. All in all, quite a good time. It's so much more fun taking outfit pictures with other people.

At the restaurant I had some mini burgers and a coke while the other girls were normal and got something alcoholic. After we had dinner we decided we wanted dessert so we went on a mission to find Barcelona, a tapas restaurant, and it turns out it was gone. We ended up at Restaurant Bricco where I had really delicious gelato! Totally worth the crazy $6 price...

Without further ado, the results of our picture taking adventure. For more photos of Amber and Lydia, see their blogs!

Dress: Oasis (ASOS), Heels: Lanvin (Roundabout) $82, Belt from Jason Wu for Target dress, Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (net-a-porter) gift card, Bracelets c/o 31 Bits, Watch: Michael Kors
I couldn't choose my favorite group shots, so there are lots, sorry! :p
