Lady Date

Even though it can be really hard to organize, I do love getting together with other bloggers. I feel so fortunate to have met Courtney, Christine, and Megan. Knowing them through their blogs is great, but getting to spend time face to face talking, laughing, and complaining is even better.

We Connecticut bloggers might not be the most organized, but we are definitely trying and hopefully soon we can build a really great community. And hey, now we've even got a facebook page, so if you are in CT, I hope we can meet!

It's always lovely to meet up with fellow bloggers!! It was such a great time, that I can't wait for the next. Wished that I had put more thought in my outfit and that I wasn't feeling puffy from my sinus infection. Still the food, drinks, dessert, coffee, and company were all great!!

Daniela said...

u two look great! Sounds like a lot of fun! I have yet to go to a meetup but I will soon!

Gray Skies said...

Hooray for blogger get-togethers! I like that you had only a few bloggers at yours - the one I went to in Portland had about 20 people, so I didn't even get to talk to half the people there.

Your skirt is amazing! I love the asymmetrical hem.

norma said...

You guys looked like you had so much fun!!

TaraMixandMatch said...

Awesome skirt...and those cute green heels are pretty cool too!

Cara said...

What a beautiful skirt! I love the sandals and that great clutch, such a fun outfit for a blogger get together. Meeting the faces behind your favorite blogs is so much fun.

eek said...

How fun! Looks like you had a great time :)

Alex Elizabeth said...

Desigual! I just saw them at the trade show :) I want to do more blogger meetups. Just had one, but... obviously more are needed. I am so joining your Facebook page, even though I couldn't tell you the last time I've actually been to Connecticut, haha.

Rebecca said...

I like your flowered skirt, and it looks like you had a fun afternoon.

Shannon said...

Shea said...

Looks like a fun night! I love getting together with other bloggers, it doesn't happen often enough! And that cake... I'm drooling!

Eli said...

I like how you're both wearing white button downs but in totally different ways!!

this free bird said...

It sounds weird but somehow it warms my heart that you and Courtney get to hang out now and then. She's from my part of Canada and I feel this kinship with her that I can't explain.

And off topic, but dang your skirt is CUTE.

Ang Lam said...

OMG love both of your outfits! I wish I can meet up with some Vancouverite blogger too :) must be fun

What a great get together! I definitely hope to attend a blogger meet-up in CHicago. I love your skirt Lydia! The print and the design is gorgeous. BTW..there is a mint green pleated chiffon skirt at Zara :)

Hogger and Co. said...

Looks like it was a ball - love the skirt!
Also, YES, Christine is UBER talented, I'm so glad I got to meet her when she was in Boston a few weeks ago - what a doll! Happy that CT is getting a blogger community going.

Marie McGrath (The Joy of Fashion) said...

Aaaaww, a blogger meetup sounds like so much fun!! I wish I was in the U.S. and could meet up with some of my favorite bloggers. Alas, in Panama there are almost no bloggers at all, just one or two. Anyway, I really like your skirt! You both look fantastic.
