I was totally spoiled, having two blogger meetups in two days and on Saturday Meg, Christine, and I went thrift shopping and then took advantage of the beautiful weather to take tons of photos.

All three of us decided to buy midi rings from Urban Outfitters, since they were only $6 and were made in the USA!

Christine even surprised me with a belated birthday present, the pretty green leather bracelet I'm wearing, and a new coffee mug to add to my collection.

In addition to the ring, I picked up a pretty ikat print skirt for $19, which I can hopefully wear this weekend.

All in all, pretty great weekend!

    I adore that necklace, it is gorgeous and completely sets off the outfit!

  2. Yayy! I'm so excited for tons of photoshoots during the summer when we won't be dying of freezing temps! (but we might melt...)

  3. Ooh that sounds like a perfect couple of days!

    Love that outfit - leopard print and green look great together.

  11. I can see how much easier it is when taking outfit photos with more than one having someone else take photos instead of a tripod I'm sure makes a big difference. I'm still giddy about (all of) my purchases this past weekend! So happy that you liked the bracelet and it went so well with this outfit!

  12. Oh that's "my" JCP skirt... it looks fab with animal print.
    I have never tried it...
