One of THE best things about blogging are the friends I have met throughout the process.  I can pretty much go to any place in the US and know at least 1 blogger in that state (that may be an exaggeration, but you catch my drift).  On my last trip to Cali, I got to meet up with Emily of Anna Delores again (she’s the one who took these family photos for us).  We did a little shopping at an outlet mall and a consignment shop before meeting up with a bunch of other LA bloggers.  But actually, before we headed to dinner, we took a few outfit pics for each other (check out hers here) with the backdrop of Santa Monica!  I love this outfit because of all the color… and b/c Emily is an amazing photographer!

And later that night, these are the fabulous ladies I met up with!  We had drinks, amazing food, and a fun time talking about all things blogging and life!  :)  Can’t wait to hang out with you ladies again!

    Ah still so bummed I couldn’t make it to the meet up, I won’t be going down south as often when our Disneyland passes expire so that means I can venture down for things like this so let me know when you’re in town again :). Your outfit looked gorgeous and Emily really captured you so wonderfully!
