  1. Love this outfit so much! And the meetup looks like it was a great time! I'd love to hop into one of those one day soon in Virignia! (And yes, your hair did look great! Sorry to hear about your car!)

  2. Hi Lura! It was so good to meet you at the NC Blogger meetup! Can't believe that happened to your car :( I LOVE that shirt by the way!

  3. That blazer was a steal! And the meetup looks like so much fun - I'll have to see if they have any in my area.

  4. Your outfit was so cute! Oh my gosh about your car though-- I'm so sorry! So great meeting you girl, hope we can get together sometime soon!

  5. So fun! Blogging is not popular in my area at all, so I don't think anyone would show up to a local blogger meet up, so jealous!
