An afternoon with Closet Fashionista

Last Friday I got a chance to meet up with Meg from Closet Fashionista; I took her on my usual thrift tour around town and we both scored some fun pieces (Turquoise J.Crew shorts and white Ralph Lauren Sweater for me, elephant print dress and floral print blouse for Meg).

We went to lunch and then to my beach for outfit photos! It is so less weird taking photos at the beach when you've got a friend. The people staring and commenting is much less uncomfortable when you aren't alone, haha.

It was such a perfect afternoon, with great weather, and great company.

You should go checkout Meg's post, shes got some different photos up too!

    Yeah, photos with a friend are the best. You can get silly without feeling like a complete idiot.

    I love your dress so much, and the button-up shirt tied at the waist was the perfect summery touch.

  28. I love the expressions on your faces in these photos.
