Bloggers day out

While it certainly does not seem like it, it was a whole year ago that I went on my very first blogger meetup, and having the most fun evening out in a long time.

Over the year I've meet with these girls again, met new ones, traveled to New York with some, gotten help with some shopping feats, and made some wonderful new friends.

This past weekend I once again got together with Amber, Bethany, Christine, Courtney and Megan for an afternoon-turned-evening of eating, shopping, and photo taking.

This was Courtney's last meetup with us as a Connecticut resident, as she is heading home to Canada at the end of the month; we will definitely miss her at our next outing!

I love how well coordinated everyone is, and clearly completely on top of the trends. We are all wearing blue, there are three yellow belts among us, lots of prints (Jason Wu for Target on Amber and Meg), chiffon, gladiator sandals... the woman working at the restaurant we went to, La Petie France Café, complimented our impeccable style. I agree. We are pretty fabulous.

I really enjoyed my lunch of a savory crepé and macarons... I need to find somewhere I can get good crepés around here (or I'll have to start driving to West Hartford more often...)

After lunch we headed out to do some shopping at Charming Charlie and Second Time Around, then we took some outfit photos (not nearly as many as I would have liked, haha, but I can spend an hour just taking my own some days...)

After Amber and Bethany headed out, the remaining four of us decided we weren't quite ready to call it a day and navigated our way to Nordstrom Rack and TJ Maxx. We all went home with something, and Meg basically made the score of a lifetime at Nordstrom Rack. (Lucky!)

We headed out to dinner (finally had a little wine), and eventually had to say our good nights and good byes.
Pretty much the best way to spend a Satruday, I think.

guwaha, that's funny about the three yellow belts! Stylish ladies always be knowin' whats up in the fashion world. ;)

This is a lovely set of photos. So green and vibrant! That skirt of yours is especially pretty and reminds me of the little mermaid's hair in a way, and I don't know why. But it does. Lovely lovely!

Every time I get together with bloggers, I notice a very distinct blogger trend. It's really weird because it looks like a lookbook come alive.

Bloggers day out sounds like a fun idea! :) Here in the Philippines, we have this event called Bloggers United where famous bloggers sell their clothes at a cheap price. :) It's a time for their followers/readers to meet them and interact with them as well. :)

Of course, through blogging, some of us made our own set of friends. It's fun going out with them, busy tweeting and taking photos. :D

From the looks of it, you guys also had fun! :)
