This past weekend I met up with Meg and Christine for brunch and shopping, something we are trying to make a regular occurrence, because everyone knows breakfast food is the best, fellow bloggers make awesome company, and when we shop together, leaving empty handed is a rare sight.

We braved the freezing temps and ice cold wind to take outfit photos; Christine rocked an amazing pair of leopard pumps with green pants and Meg showed off her new vintage Chanel jacket.

I decided to debut my new metallic skirt from the Narciso Rodriguez/Kohls diffusion line, and try out a style tip from the pages of Lucky Mag, layering a wristlet as part of my bracelet stack.

You all look so lovely! And brave indeed you ladies are for braving the cold. Lyddie, I adore this look so much! It's so sleek. Sleek and classy, as per usual. I adore your blue shirt with that necklace, and instantly favorited that picture when I saw it on Flickr. :) I'm glad you had a fun meetup!

Alissa said...

You all look so gorgeous! You all look like you had so much fun, despite the cold!

As for you, that shirt with the necklace is PERFECTION in every possible way!

you look ready to party :)
I think that skirt is gorgeous and the blue shirt adds the perfect touch.
Now, I am still trying to get the add a wristlet to the stack of bracelets ... I'd think it would be uncomfortable.
AND MY HATS OFF to all 3 of you - for being able to look great and be brave to take your pictures is the snow.

I loove your outfit! All of your outfits are such an inspiration to me! It really gives me an encouragement that I can still be fashionable under budget. I saw your JCP yellow blazer on the top... Wow, just like from Zara! I think I got this one for over $50! That's amazing/ridiculous! lol Great find!

Gorgeous look! Love the splash of blue too!

Cee said...

You three all look so perfectly put together! I'm incredibly jealous of Meg's gorgeous Chanel jacket! And your combination of blue, crystal and gold brocade won me over in an instant - maybe I could just, you know, temporarily borrow the whole outfit? ;)


You all must had the best time, sounds like a lovely day. The golden colour in your jacquard skirt is beautiful.
