A date with a clothes horse

On Monday night I met up with the lovely Rebecca of The Clothes Horse, and her sister. It was my first blogger meet up and I was actually a bit nervous. I'm so embarrassingly awkward in person, but we actually both had a laugh about being like that. It was quite surreal to meet her, I'm so new to blogging and her's is one of the first I found and fell in love with, she lives in America so I never thought for a second that I would be able to get her insight on the whole blogging thing. We had a lovely evening sipping cider and cocktails, sitting on the wall by Cambridge quayside, dangling our legs over the river below. I'm definitely looking forward to my next blogger meet up, I wonder who it will be with next time...

It was getting dark when we met, so we didn't really get a chance to take any decent pictures, but here is one of us taken by Rebecca's sister. I felt like a giraffe in my heels, I didn't notice at the time, but Rebecca is standing on her tip toes, I love that!


Denim Shirt: Topshop   T-shirt: H&M   Playsuit: Primark  Bag: Urban Outfitters | Shoes: Topshop

I know I've done a post on this playsuit quite recently but I've totally changed my mind since then and I actually feel really comfortable in it now, maybe it was all your lovely comments that helped!

  24. On second glance it looks like it's not the lighting making it look beige but is actually the fabric, still love it!!! Man, wish they'd had that when I was there!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Is your playsuit black with pink polka dots?!?!? If it is, I bought a skirt of that same fabric from H&M in Seattle, Washington. It's one of my favorite pieces of the summer, but a PLAYSUIT!!! Oh man, they didn't have those when I bought my skirt, otherwise I'd TOTALLY have a playsuit instead! (They used to make me feel awkward too, but I'm loving them now!!!)

  26. Those shoes are fabulous. I'm rather envious of your whole outfit actually!

  43. It's very cute! I had my first blogger meet up last month, and have one (with a few Scottish bloggers) this month and one in October (with some LOndon bloggers).

    I think some people find it a bit strange, but I think you know so much about someone from their blog that it's a natural progression!

  44. wow, you've met Rebecca! a little bit jealous i must admit =D
