Summer Remix – Day 17


Last weekend I had the most lovely coffee date with one of my favourite friends, gorgeous Vickie of Adventures in Fashion. We sat by the shop window, sipped yummy drinks (thanks for treating V!) and chatted about everything under the sun.

It was a perfect Saturday morning escape from the routine of the week. As a new Mom, it’s funny how much I’ve come to appreciate these wonderfully little pockets of non-Mommy time.

After catching up on each other’s lives, the obligatory girl talk (hair, makeup, etc), the conversation inevitably turned to blogging. There was a lot of “isn’t she amazing”, and “how do people do that?”. THEN, we decided to take some outfit pics (how could two bloggers meet up and NOT take outfit pics?!)

Vickie was far more eager to take my picture than my Mr. ever is. He bought me a wireless remote so I could take my own photo’s after all!

Howwwever, if I didn’t have said remote (thank you Mr.), we wouldn’t have been able to capture the awesomeness of us posing together. Here are the results:






Posing together proved to be much harder than we anticipated. As soon as we began it was like someone turned on the akward-tap. These two shots aren’t too bad, but trust me, no one (not even our loved ones) should be subjected to the outtakes.



Make sure you check out Vickie’s blog to see her photos from our adventure!

Happy Weekending my Lovelies!! OXO

    So cute, Natalie! I love the pattern mixing. Your little orange purse completes the look. Glad you had some non-mommy time… I too cherish every moment I have to be just me. You’re reminding me to schedule a coffee or mojito date with my bestie!

    Dig the bright red bag, especially as I am on the hunt for both a bright red bag/red satchel and a classic crossbody bag. I’m seriously considering the Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC or the Kate Spade Essex Satchel. But every time I hit Nordstrom, I’m drawn to the Marc by Marc Jacobs bags. The leather is so soft and supple.

  10. Very cute outfits – both of you! Sounds like a perfect Saturday morning!
