Look Book: Argyle, Polka Dots & A Valentines Blogger Meet-up!!

Thursday, February 16, 2012

Just this past Sunday, I attended a Valentines themed blogger meet-up, hosted by my good friend Cee of Coco & Vera. We met up at Cee's home, which is beautifully decorated with Parisian bits everywhere - it's really adorable! We then (in our usual fashion!) gathered around her kitchen island where we gabbed fashion, sipped wine, and ate yummy cakes & fresh strawberries. It was a super fun day. I absolutely love those girls!
We unfortunately didn't get our usual group shot, as it was pretty rainy & glum outside, but I was thrilled to see & meet: Randa, Leonie, Alison, Alicia, and our host Cee - of course! I'm also super excited to share that Cee & Alicia are organizing the first large scale blogger clothing sale here in Vancouver. It's going to be a fabulous day complete with goodie bags & adorable clothes. I'll be sure to keep you posted on that!

How was everyone's Valentines Day?! Ours was such a sweet day. I excitedly surprised Martin with a decorated condo full of strung hearts & confetti, his favourite pasta dish, chocolates, and a bottle of red. He loved it. We then ended our evening snuggled on the couch and watched romantic movies - it was the perfect mid-week date for two very over-worked people. ;) xo veronika

  21. Vancouver bloggers are awesome. I emailed a Seattle fashion blogger meetup but they NEVER got back to me :O( Definitely not feeling the love here. Perhaps the coined phrase "Seattle Freeze" is true after all (Just kidding)

  31. sadness prevails on having to miss seeing you girls last weekend but viewing these awesome recaps also make me smile because i can just imagine what a good time was had by all! you look incredibly darling Veronika!!! i LOVE the argyle accents and sweet, subtle pattern in that dress. swell choices, um....glasses are to die for too!!!

    the blogger clothing sale thing sounds interesting, def excited to hear more on that goodness.

    your v-day sounds perfectly charming! no doubt Martin loved it and that kisses were flying left and right. so good : ) ours was a whole notha story, biggest fail EVER. the capper was a deep fry disaster that ended up resulting in almost a 3 hour clean up. total kibosh on the ol' romance if ya know what i mean. oi oi oi bad blues is what. awe well, a new weekend looms close so we'll hope for something more like yours to occur! happy wishes lovely!!!! xo ♥

  32. Aw, it was so much fun to have a chance to see this look in person. I love the text of your skirt - it's anything but basic black, which is just fabulous :) And those glasses suit you so beautifully, they work with every style and colour! Such a shame about the rain that we weren't able to get any good group shots, but there will definitely be a next time! Hope your week is winding up in a stress-free way!

  44. I'd love to meet local Atlanta bloggers like this! It's really hard to find Georgia bloggers for some reason (or either I'm just not looking hard enough hehe!)
