bloggers who brunch

this weekend was so fun and eventful, i'm still catching up on posts! recently, i joined a group on meet up with other style bloggers from the dc/maryland/virginia area. i was in contact with a few of them and had seen their blogs, but we had all never met in person! sunday, our group leader akinyi (from fits on me) planned a lovely little brunch in bethesda for all of us to get together and meet. it was so much fun and i'm so excited to get to know these ladies more!

check out their blogs (l to r): 1//2//3//4//5

we went to la madeleine, the cutest little french cafe, ate croissants, and talked about why we starting blogging and what it means to us. i was excited that i wasn't the only one who has just recently started blogging and was happy to meet other newbies. akinyi planned the cutest little get to know you games and we just chatted and of course ended the afternoon with a photo shoot! 

every single one of these girls is gorgeous and all of their blogs are so fun and unique. it was so nice to hang out with other people who love blogging as much as i do, and get some tips from the more experienced bloggers of the bunch. its so great how each of us had such a different perspective on blogging and how we interpret fashion, but for all of us it's just a great outlet to express ourselves.

akinyi was so prepared she even made us little goody bags and handed them out before we left! mine had a yummy cake, a face mask kit, nail polish, and a cool vintage post card. it was such a fun day and i can't wait for more outings and events so i can keep learning, growing, and meeting new people. the blogging community is such a fun and creative atmosphere.

it was so much pressure waking up sunday and picking out what to wear, because c'mon! i was getting ready to meet 5 super stylish ladies. but i decided to go with this pretty mint dress from forever 21 and pair a lace tank over top. if i'm wearing a sundress i am one happy camper. the day couldn't have been better and i can't wait to see what is in store for us DMV bloggers. it should be interesting!

what are some of your guys favorite blogs? i would love to hear! thanks for reading.
