The Tiny Heart: Blogger Meetup

8.27.2012

Blogger Meetup

I had my first blogger meet up on Saturday in the city (aka New York City). Pretty sure I tried on 10 different outfits before I settled on one. I think I spent more time picking out my outfit for these girls than I take picking out an outfit for a date with my hubby! 



 Tank-Old Navy now $4, Dress worn as Skirt-Target (similar), Necklace-INPINK, Watch-Michael Kors, Heels-c/o Oasap

(I wore flat sandals to the blogger meet up for walking around the city, but pretend I wore these heels, okay?)


Left to Right: Catalina & Diana-City & Burbs, Me, Tara-Penniless Socialite, Kym-Bitty and Bunny

Over brunch and mimosas, we talked about everything from our husband/boyfriends' fashion choices, guilty pleasure tv shows to IFBCon, getting free swag, making time for blogging in our busy lives and so much more.

It was funny how this was the first time we met, yet I felt like I knew these girls forever. Hands down, this has been my favorite part of blogging so far. When I started this blog, I never knew that it would allow me to make so many new friends (both ones I met in person and ones I haven't) and be part of such a wonderful, supportive community who just happen to dress to the nines.

  4. Hey there! Well you looked super cute with this outfit, I didn't realize that skirt had pockets! Now I love it MORE. Thanks again for setting this up, it was SO much fun! Even though I was "meeting" you for the first time, it felt like I had known you for longer! I agree with you, this is why I love blogging, because I get to meet wonderful people like you. BTW, How did the shopping go? Did you buy anything at H&M or Uniqlo?

  11. You look adorable. So simple and cute. Kelly Green goes so well with bright pink, who would have thunk it? Your necklace is real cute. =)

    And blogger meet-ups are great. There is a huge, genuinely-nice Blogging community out there and we are all friends and supporters of each other.

    Stop by when you have a chance. Thank you, Ada. =)

  33. It must be fun to be able to meet up with other bloggers and it is normal for girls to dress up for other girls rather than men.. men wouldn't know the difference anyway, LOL!

  66. Ooooh, I like this skirt! (Stripes and pockets are so the way to my heart. ^_^) I also really like the unexpected pairing on the green tank with it, it feels very summery and fun. (I always like unexecpted color pairings, it's fun to see something new.) And how cool about the blogger meetup, that looks like it was quite a bit of fun to meet up with these gals. :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. I love hearing this and love that you had such a great time! This is the part I loved so much about blogging: meeting and making new friends that actually like to get dressed up (or down: love me some jeans sometime) and love fashion...
    So happy for you guys!
    By the way, I am imagining that you are wearing the heels! Got it!
