Guess what guys?! Today I had the lovely opportunity of meeting up with Sarah from Just Take a Bow and her lovely friend for lunch! When Sarah let me know a couple of months ago that she was going to travel to Panama, I was of course super excited to meet her in person. I have always wanted to do a blogger meetup, so it was a real treat to have lunch with them today :)

In terms of my outfit, I decided to wear this pretty lace dress that has been sitting in my closet unused for several months now. I love how the leopard flats and bold hat add pizazz to an otherwise simple look.

  3. Aaah that's so exciting to get to do a blogger meetup! What cute outfits you all have! *___* Your lace dress is especially lovely, Marie!

    There's actually a girl who lives 2 hours away from me (so a 1 hour drive for each of us) that I reaaaally want to see. I don't know if you've ever heard of her, but her name is Amber (if the blog Modest June or Laughing with Broken Eyes rings a bell) but ah I want to see her so bad!!
