Surprise Blogger Meet Up

Dress: Old Navy
Belt: Forever 21
Earrings: Target
Teal cuff: Forever 21
Sandals: Old Navy

Okay, my outfit posting is totally out of order because of all this traveling.  I still have a few more backlogged outfits from before I went on vacation, but we'll save those for another day.  Today I want to post this outfit so I can tell you something.

First of all, this is one of my go-to outfits in the summer.  A couple of days ago our friends hosted a BBQ and I literally tossed this dress on because I didn't want to think about getting dressed.  And, this dress is so soft it should be made into pajamas.

Anyway, two other families were invited to the BBQ, and I met a woman named Morgan for the first time.  The first thoughts that ran through my head when I met Morgan were:
  1. "OMG your kids are so cute I want to eat them."  (That's not weird, right?)
  2. "Morgan would be a cute style blogger...she should really start one."  (This is now the pathetic way I see the world after starting a blog.)
Soon after, I heard Morgan mention to her friend that she was starting the 30 for 30 that day.  My ears perked up and I blurted out that I was doing the 30 for 30 too.  Part of me instantly regretted it because I hadn't even told my friends that I started a style blog yet!  But soon after, my regret faded because I found out that Morgan also has a blog!

At Morgan's blog Mama Loves Papa, Morgan not only posts outfits from her 30 for 30, she tells stories about her FOUR awesome and so-cute-I-wanna-eat-them children, posts about their style, and talks about all other things related to marriage, motherhood, and style.

Check out Morgan and her family at Mama Loves Papa!


  1. What a cute dress and cuff!

  2. I love it! I always feel awkward mentioning that I blog too and especially when I started the 30 for 30 challenge. How cool that you met someone who is also a fashion blogger!! 

  3. That's super cool that you met another kindred spirit doing the 30 for 30!  I'd be too scared to mention to someone that I have a blog but if they started the conversation first, then it would ease my anxiety.  I loved the way you accessorized.

    Complex Cardigans

  4. I love the simplicity of this outfit! And that teal cuff is the perfect hint of color.

    That is so cool that you met another blogger! I don't tell many people about my blog either, but I know other bloggers in my area and it's like an instant bond with them because of our blogs.

    Glad I found your blog through EBEW! I'm your newest follower!

    Mint & Mellow

  5. You don't tell people about your blog?  Your blog is so successful though!  I found your blog recently through Linda's shout outs and have been following you through Bloglovin.  Your are so cute!  Thanks so much for following too :)
