Blogger meet-up!

On Saturday night, Leeann and I co-hosted a blogger meet-up at J.Crew Factor meaning I got to hang out with some wonderful girls doing one of my favorite past times, shopping. p.s. It is true that blogging really brings people together. The first time Leeann and I met was over a year ago when we were driving down to San Diego together for another blogger meet-up. Fortunately, she and I had a lot in common and a lot to talk about or else that 2 hour card ride there and 2 hours back would have been pretty awkward or silent.
Anyways shopping meant finding more excuses why I needed to spend some money on clothes from a store that has already saturated my closet enough and usually we are pretty good at coming up with such excuses. How about the excuse that the entire store was 50% off and I had a an extra 10% off coupon on top of that? I managed to restrain myself a bit by walking out with such a top and a fuchsia colored pair of flats! Despite the wonderful deals I found, it didn't overshadow the lovely bloggers I got to meet and hang out with all night long, cookies and mini cupcakes helped too!
Who are the other gals I got to meet?
from left to right: Kathrin, Leeann, Kate, Jasmine, Amanda and me

From trying on multiple items to getting to know each other more, our meet-up was great.
And if you haven't heard of J.Crew Factory then you missed out, big time and I am talking 60% big deal. 
Just a few more photos from our fun evening!

p.s. the shorts that Kathrin is wearing, I have a dress in the same print, I guess J.Crew likes to recycle!

These two are so fun to hang out with!
