As I mentioned in my last OOTD post, I spent my Memorial Day with Lily and Clare in Portlandia!
This picture basically describes our afternoon: giggling, eating, and posing with pigs. Haha, okay well maybe we did a little more than that!
We began our sunny day with lunch at St. Honoré, a local French bakery. We nibbled on croissant sandwiches, and then split the cutest cream puff pastry (I wish I had snapped a picture of it before we destroyed it with our forks). After a little chit chat about school, boys, and prom, we made our way down 23rd Street! We popped into a bunch of shops—Free People, M·A·C, thrift stores—basically anything that caught our eye. It was a day of amazing deals: I managed to find a way cool tie dye dress for $7.50 and Lily scored a super soft tee for only $4. Even with our great bargains in hand, I was still lusting over the $2000 Free People dress that was beaded from top to bottom that we spotted hanging in the very back of the store. Someday when I have that kind of money to spend on a boho maxi, you bet you’ll find that dress or something similar hanging in my closet. After our exhausting work out (a.k.a. walking and gawking), we stopped for some yummy gelato. Then shortly after, we said our goodbyes and of course, started making plans for a summer meet up.
Even though I’ve only known these girls since August and I don’t get to talk to them face to face all that often (we have plenty of phone conferences and comment on each other’s Instagrams, but we only physically meet up every couple of months), I still feel really bonded to them. We share a common experience as bloggers that not many other high school girls can relate to, so our friendship will always be special to me—there aren’t many people out there that understand the struggle of finding cool photo shoot locations, maintaining style inspiration 24/7, and trying to be cool but not too cool. I’ll definitely miss these ladies when our blogging term is over!
P.S. A big thanks to Clare for coordinating this fun outing! 🙂
