What an amazing weekend. Saturday I met up with Mil & Jules from South by Northwest to go see Emily Schuman from Cupcakes & Cashmere! She was in Seattle promoting her latest book and clothing line. The meet and greet was at the downtown Nordstrom and everyone who came got the opportunity to meet Emily, get her autograph, and pose for a photo (see my pic on Instagram).
I’ve been to these events before, but this one was very organized, and Emily was an absolute gem! She was so personable and 100% genuine. I felt like I was chatting with a girlfriend. This made me respect her that much more.
I also had the pleasure of meeting Julianna from Blush & Camo. I spotted her in line, and she greeted me with a big hug and smile. It felt like we had known each other for years. Definitely check out her lovely blog. She’s a doll.
Let’s talk about this skirt. I love the color, the pleats, and the laser cut details, but for some reason I found it difficult to style. The solution: keep it simple. I wore this look with my favorite silk blouse and light brown wedges, and topped it off with my new layering necklace and gold stacking rings.
Thanks so much for reading. Don’t forget to stop by this Thursday for the second installment of my blogging resource series. If you missed the first one, you can check it out here. See you then!

You were so right, when you wrote in my comment section, that we should totally shop together girl ;). I am so in love with your accessories. And that pale pink champagne color is my favorite as well. You look amazing.

Very pretty, indeed! Also, I love your adorable pony- especially with the bangs! I wish I knew how to do that with my hair (I’ve never really understood how to properly tease). 🙂
