Mini meetup in Royal Oak

On Saturday, Katelyn, Jaclyn and I met up for lunch at What Crepe? in Royal Oak. I have to say, I was totally nervous to meet these ladies. I always give weird first impressions. I tend to get a little shy and hang back because I don’t want to say the wrong thing and tick someone off. But Katelyn and Jaclyn were so nice my nervousness melted away. It was great to meet some Michigan bloggers that actually live pretty close to me.

I’ve had this dress for a bit, but waited to wear it until our meetup. I also wore heels, after spending all of Friday night in those 5 inch fake Miu Miu pumps. Big mistake. My feet STILL hurt for that!


Katelyn did tell me she expected me to wear something much more colorful than what I wore. I suppose my insane color addition gives everyone the impression that I own nothing black… But sometimes it’s nice to be unexpected! πŸ™‚
Dress: Calvin Klein
Cardigan: Charlotte Russe
Belt: Modcloth
Shoes: Nine West
Tights: Forever 21
Necklace: Gift

We went vintage shopping and I found this great dress that reminded me of Nickelodeon slime! (wrong color though!)

I didn’t end up getting that dress, but I found another one that I LOVE and kept coming back to. I’m really excited for it!

I was also excited because I got to use Katelyn’s and Jaclyn’s awesome cameras to help them take outfit shots. Their cameras are SO much nicer than mine.

I need a new camera. (I’m pretty sure I’m telling Jaclyn that I want to take a photo of her pin in this one… That or I’m just being weird. Either is possible!)

Thanks for the photos Katelyn! πŸ™‚


PS- today is me and Joe’s 6 year anniversary. We’ve been married for 1.5 years, but together for 6 πŸ™‚ Yup, we met on election day 2004.

  1. I love the post! I had so much fun with you two πŸ™‚ and I can’t wait til we can have another vintage shopping day. I’ll have to email you my photos, there are som fun ones of you and Katelyn (and some of us fighting the wind!)

    Congrats on your anniversary as well πŸ™‚


    • Ooh yay! I want to see your pics too!! πŸ™‚

      And thanks! We’re trying to figure out what we’re going to do tonight πŸ™‚

  2. First of all, Happy Aniversary!! So awesome!

    That dress is so cute! The color pattern is very nice and adding the sweater and the belt (is that the infamous belt by the way? πŸ™‚ ) was a very nice touch!

  3. I actually prefer you in bright colors, rather than black. I like you best in orange, red, bright pink and kelly green. And crazy patterns, too!

  4. Fun! What kind of crepe did you get? My best friend and I have been meaning to get that place a try! The Sweet Cheese Crepe sounds so amazing. OK… pretty much any of their crepes sound amazing. πŸ™‚ Love your Calvin dress!

    • I think it was a #16- salmon, cheese and tomato. I kinda wish I would’ve ordered something else! The cheese was too overpowering for the salmon 😦
      It’s a yummy place!! πŸ™‚

  5. I love this outfit. I go through phases of color and neutral. I own wayyy too much black, but my friend Hnin always says I don’t wear a lot of black which I think is odd. hmmm…

    I am really anxious about the first time I meet fellow bloggers because I’m exactly the same way. I hang back and am really shy at first. And lord knows I’m not shy at all once you know me… but first meetings always sort of intimidate me!

    That dress is definitely Nickelodeon slim! And so fun!

  6. I love your dress and your tights! πŸ™‚ You look pretty in the orange dress too. The slime look the same, lol but of different color though. ^^

    Happy anniversary to you & Joe! πŸ™‚ More years to come! ^^

  7. I think it’s so great there are bloggers nearby you can meet up with! I love your dress as well – the wide stripes are so fun.

    The yellow dress is hilarious πŸ™‚
