This weekend I went to another blogger meetup with my buddies Lydia, Christine and Tiffany. We're trying to make it a monthly event and it seems to be going well so far. We started off with brunch at Lena's in New Haven (I had a delicious Belgian waffle!) After that we headed over to the Yale campus to take out outfit photos, such a perfect location and there are tons of great spots for pictures (even more come Summer.)
Next while walking back to the car we stopped in a couple shops. I bought a couple of bracelets (these) at Ten Thousand Villages, a fair trade store, meaning everything is handmade by artists. There were so many great pieces but I resisted most of them because I don't have that much room for decorations in my house. I kind of want to get a couple more of the bangles I bought. Tiffany and I bought all the ones they had in stock, ha ha.
Finally, we headed all the way to Coco's of Madison. We (Lydia, Christine and I) have been there 3 times in the past month: I think we have a problem. Luckily I only picked up two pieces this time. A pretty orange and red sleeveless top for Summer and a fun Ralph Lauren scarf that I bought to hang on my wall (and possibly wear.)
Aaaand here is my outfit. I wasn't in the mood for any clothes (it was really cold) so I threw on my DKNY dress, warm tights and some flat boots.
