Rose Festival + Blogger Meet Up

Hello followers :D New and old, though I don't know how I accumulated a few more of you, since I've been so busy and horrible about comments. But no more. I am done with Spring 2011 classes. And actually have a huge backlog of things to post--including outfits, graphic design projects from the term, inspiration, etcetera.




I wore this outfit this past Saturday when I went to the Fair with two of my coworkers, a friend from high school and her sister. I wanted a cute breezy outfit, but definitely needed the leggings for going on rides.





MORE exciting though, is that I just had my first blogger meet up. Leanna, of The Violet Reaction rode the train up to Portland, so we hung out for an afternoon/evening. Look! She is so tall and I am so short. It is quite silly. The weather was a bit poopy, so we both stuck to wearing pants.




I am horrid at taking photos. Maybe because I'm not used to it. I'd rather enjoy hanging out with someone than try to completely document the time spent together. We ate at a lovely Crepe/Rice Pudding place, thrifted and then shopped around NW 23rd, which is a boutique/cafe lined street in Portland.



Leanna is one of my favorite bloggers and it was amazing being able to meet up with her :D Her outfits/inspiration are lovely, plus, she has an amazing little etsy shop where she sells her handmade jewelry things. I asked her to bring up the purple pair on the left and she was amazing enough to bring me these pretty green ones too.




Plus, I'll also at some point have this necklace. I've really been meaning to try to wear more accessories. Because I feel like that's where I always cut corners. But seriously, she's really sweet and I had a great time taking her around Portland. Check out her Blog and Etsy Shop.

TOMORROW WILL BE THE DAY I CATCH UP ON BLOGS/COMMENTS. Thanks for being so patient with me. <3

  1. Oooh, I love seeing you together, both favourite bloggers of mine. :) The earrings are lovely!

    Is it possible that I remember this dress from before? Or am I imagining? or maybe dreamt about it. I have the craziest dreams about blogs, dresses and my photography. The other night in my dream someone told me my pics were overexposed. They aren't! :D

  6. YAY, congrats on finally getting through the term! :) I'm excited to know you'll be posting more as well, hehe :)

    That watercolor dress is so adorable. Also loving the crocheted top you're wearing during your meetup with Leanna. Hihi, and you're sooo cute! Petite girls for the win!

    I think it's so lovely that people actually get to forge real life connections with bloggers they've met online. I hope I can meet some of yall one day too :)

  7. I can't remember if I've said this before but you are the most super awesome poser for pictures. I'd look like a crazy woman doing that, but somehow you make it look totally natural. :)

    And those pics make me laugh soo much! I wonder what people were thinking when we were walking around... such a huge height difference. I kind of feel the need now to put a warning on my blog or something about how tall I am. lol. But anyways, thank you again so much for having me! I had such a good time.

  8. You and Leanna are so adorable. I had a couple of friends in college who were under 5 feet tall and I'm 5'10 so it would be giant me walking around with the tiny two of them. I'm sure I looked totally awkward, but the pictures of the two of you are so cute!

  9. I love your dress and shoes! The print on the dress is so pretty, unique and summery. I'm working on training myself to take more photos when I go to interesting places. I also like to be in the moment and not snapping away the whole time.

  14. Omg! Please don't hate me for saying but I completely LOL'ed when I saw the height difference. Short people ftw! I'm 5'3'' so I know what being short is like :D

    The dress is so beautiful.It looks like you painted on a blank white canvas.

  19. She is super friggin' tall. You guys together look exactly how I am with the rest of the world. I feel like everyone towers over me. That's why I am marrying Mr. A. He's kind of a shorty, too.

  27. Such a pretty summer dress!
    I also terrible at documenting an event. I find taking outfit pics at a restaurant full of people is rather awkward. I only take pictures at a restaurant when there's nobody around!

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a message. It means a lot, and I don't take it lightly. Each one makes me smile--though I won't just follow you simply if you follow me. So please don't ask.

By default, I take a look at every single person that comments.
