Bloggers who brunch

Last June the style bloggers of Connecticut got organized enough to arrange a meetup, and even though we insisted we'd do it again soon, here we are in the last week of February. But at least it happened!
blogger meetup
I got to join the lovely Megan, Courtney and Christine for breakfast nachos, eggs benedict, and mimosas - so yummy!

Brunch gift from christine
Christine was super sweet and surprised us all with personalized gifts (even personalized gift bags) with our blog logos. If you think that owl is cute, you must go check out her etsy shop!

Next we headed over to the beach for some outfit photos, even though the wind was strong and the cold was brutal - and we almost lost Meg's camera to the beach sand (a terrible fate I know all too well) - we still managed to get some fabulous outfit photos, while maintaining the veneer that it was actually a pleasant warm day at the beach, and that sand was not being blown into our faces.

Even more fabulousness after the jump!

And then, we finally went shopping!
First we headed to Plato's Closet, because Meg and I had never been. There were a few things which piqued my interest, including a pair of Hunter rain boots for $30. Ultimately I decided to pass because they were bright yellow. Not that I have anything against bright yellow, but I just wasn't sure I wanted it in a rain boot. It's like when I made the mistake of buying bright red patent pumps and was continually called Dorothy.

We then continued on to Marshall's, and while the others found some lovely treasures, I still remained empty handed. (But no worries, I did manage to spend the rest of my February budget today.)

Terri said...

My first blogger meet-up eludes me though I've been added to a local mailing list now. Would love to have bloggers to drink mimosas with. I love the cup holder she made.

geetabix said...

What a great day! So nice you could be at the beach.

Amber said...

what a lovely bunch of ladies :) sounds like a fun time. I wish I lived closer to you guys (and wasnt so terrified of driving on the highway) so I could hang. Oh well, I will live vicariously through these photos.

Natasha Fatah said...

Oh man, it must be so nice to have a network of blogger friends to take your pics. I'm usually begging my husband, sister, a work colleague, and today I had to ask a total stranger on the street because I didn't have alternative. I think it's time to buy a tripod and a remote control and regain some dignity. ;)


Chelsea Lane said...

EEP so cute! this makes me want to gooooo! you all look excellent!


Tabitha said...

Oh my you're coral jeans are adorable. I wonder if they make a pair like those in maternity sizes (sigh). I love blogger get togethers - it's so nice having that outlet that my FIRL don't totally get.

Alex Elizabeth said...

Well... at least it was sunny? And you've got a nice, clean beach and coastline. I love blogger meetups! I want to have a bloggers who brunch. That sounds like the best idea ever.
