A Lunch With My New Lady Friends

I cannot tell you how incredibly excited I was to FINALLY meet my other Houston blogger friends IN PERSON!! YAY!! We all finally found the time to meet at a quaint little restaurant called Flora & Muse in the heart of City Centre.  I have spent a lot of time with Monica from Classy & Fabulous but I still hadn't had the chance to meet Veronika (she runs Veronika's Blushing) and Magen (she recently started Map Your Style).
First and foremost, you have to visit these ladies' blogs!! 
I could barely contain myself! A whole afternoon with ladies who love fashion as much if not more than me! What more could a woman ask for?
We had great food (including Nutella crepes), refreshing drinks (A mimosa please), and two hours full of fashion, beauty, blogging, and just life!  
Here are the photos to document our fabulous ladies' outing.
(Warning: Picture Heavy Post)

This is what I decided to wear! Lots of mixing prints and texture!!

Banana Republic skirt and blouse, J.Crew cardi and tights, H&M belt, Steve Madden boots, Kendra Scott necklace


This is me and Magen!! The redheads of the group!


And me and Monica laughing while trying to pose!!! Isn't she gorgeous?? I am going to start calling her Chanel because she is the classiest lady I know!



The chandeliers in the restaurant were absolutely beautiful. I could not resist taking a photo op!


A close-up on the necklace I bought at Elaine Turner during fashion week.


Magen and Veronika posing for the camera!! Their hair is stunning! They both just got it done!


Magen and I decided on Nutella and banana crepes. If you haven't had Nutella before, you best get your little booty to the store and get some!!


And of course the talented Monica painted this amazing Chanel perfume bottle for Megan.  Check her out, she has her own Etsy shop, HERE!


Magen and Monica. These ladies are too gorgeous for their own good!


Have you ever gotten to do a blogger meet up!??? 

Happy Saturday lovelies!!

Lynnette said...

How fun! I have passed by Flora and Muse so many time but still haven't gotten to eat there. Looks yummy! Glad you guys had a good time!

Fashion Limbo said...

This is a lovely post and you looked like you had a lovely time. After 3 years of blogging I am finally getting into the "community" but right now all of the bloggers I talk to, including you, lovely Angela, live quite far from me and each other. Now I'm moving country again and the ones that are close by will also be far...I really need to do something about this :S

Fuyume said...

aww u all look so amazing i'm going to a day long blogger meetup next fri with 3 other girls and im soo excited and in reply to your comment i'll be in nyc for fashion week in sept :)

Blah Blah Becky said...

Ah it looks like you all had such a nice time. Everyone looks beautiful and OMG those crepes....I'm a big Nutella fan.

I've never done a blogger meet up: 99% of UK bloggers seem to come from London but maybe I'll put the feelers out on IFB - thanks for the inspiration!

Oh, it's all so wonderful! The pretty clothes, the beautiful friends, the attractive setting...

I've never had Nutella; I'll have to try it.

I've dreamed about meet-ups but have never attended one. I love my fellow-bloggers so much I'd travel to see them but have just never been invited. *sniff, sniff*

Kirstin@CrimsonRosella said...

I am so jealous! I wish people lived near me for a meetup! Come visit me and we will talk fashion and crepes, mmk? :P

Elissa said...

You. Look. AMAZING! Seriously, you all look so glamorous and gorgeous and like you had so much fun. I would love to attend a blogger meet-up here in Dallas. I'd imagine it'd be great to get together with other women who love blogging and fashion as much as I do!

Hello! Fellow Houston blogger here -- represent!! Looks like a blast! I've never been to Flora & Muse... looks adorable and I have been looking for nutella crepes!! Glad you had a blast - Meg

Erika of Style Activist said...

How fun!!! All of you ladies look absolutely gorgeous :) I am loving everyone's hair - you would think this is a total hair advertisement.

Crepes look yummy, although don't kill me, but I've never had Nutella! Haha, believe it or not.

CONGRATS on the job! You are amazing and I knew you would get it. You are going to be the best and I just know they will never regret hiring you - on the contrary, I am sure that it's the best decision Anthropologie has ever made ;)

You are just fabulous, Ang!!

Love you girl :)

You look awesome in your pattern mixing. Your blogger meet-up looks great fun and I will definitely be checking out their blogs.

I've never done a meet-up but I did randomly meet a fellow blogger on the train back from London. We chatted about the new season and it was so much fun.

Nothing better than meeting people that have the same passion as you.
Loved the pictures and the recap
