Meeting Lee

I was excited to be able to meet Lee from Everyday Fashion by Lee this week! I've "known" her for as long as I have been blogging - I can't even remember how our paths first crossed!  I managed to stay true to my capsule for our meeting - though, I will say that I hemmed and hawed about it for a bit. We met on Monday, which I had planned for my camel and white outfit, but I wasn't sure how much walking we would be doing and the leopard heels in cold weather outdoors don't lend themselves to walking a ton - my feet shrink in the cold, which means my heels can slip right out of my shoes! I decided on this outfit - which was not only weather appropriate, but still fun enough for happy hour.

Earrings: Stella and DotNecklace: Kate Spade | Bag: Tory Burch (option) | Jacket: Express (other colors here) | Top: ExpressBottoms: American Eagle | Boots: Vince Camuto (option)

Lee is from Raleigh, but was in St. Louis for work, and was nice enough to give me a heads up so we could meet face to face! She was extremely easy to talk to - very engaging and down to earth! As luck would have it, she is tall just like Jenna! Ha! Apparently, I am a magnet for tall blogger friends! 

She was staying in Clayton, a suburb of St. Louis, and I took her to Remy's Kitchen and Wine Bar. She had the Fritto Misto, I had the Prince Edward Island Mussels, and, well, we both saved room for dessert, too - Creme Brûlée for her and Bread Pudding for me. Holy whoa it was all delicious! It was my first time at that restaurant, and I left more than satisfied - both with the food and with the company! :)

So so much fun getting to meet ladies all around the country who share the same interests as me! I swear I have more internet friends than real life friends! But what can I say, you guys are the best!



  1. so fun you got to meet her, I hope we get to meet as well this year. I love this jacket, next year I'm totally getting it in red.


  2. How fun! I love those OTK boots and that jacket!

  4. It was so fun meeting you and you couldn't have picked a better restaurant or outfit! St. Louis is so nice but definitely cold. It was nice to meet another women who had so many thing in common with me. Thank you again for meeting me and being generally fabulous!
    xo, Lee

  5. That's so fun that you two got to meet. You get to meet so many bloggers (and some that are ahem,"not tall"), lucky lady! I'm proud of you for sticking to your capsule. I love your outfit so don't be surprised if I bust out a similar combo soon!

  12. Love how this outfit came together! You are inspiring me to try my OTK boots with blue jeans (something I haven't actually done). So fun you got to meet up in person!

  13. This leather jacket is awesome. It fits you perfectly and looks so soft!


  14. Love your outfit. Great boots! Sounds like a fun meetup!


  15. Haha that last sentence made me smile, but I did mention smth. about my blogging friends in the blog today also. The outfit you chose was awesome too, just like that dinner. The 2 desserts sound amazing to me.

  16. I'm so jealous of the creme brulee and bread pudding you both had! You are killing it in those OTK boots!

  17. Aw glad you got to meet her, and your meal and time together sounds amazing. Back 10 or more years ago when I had a Xanga journal blog I met a handful of friends I met blogging in person. I hope to meet a handful of new bloggers in the future though *fingers crossed. Cute outfit and thanks for sharing your fun outing and meeting.

    Hope to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.

  19. I would love to meet some more bloggers. But, with work, parenting and everything in between, it's so hard. Glad that you find time and opportunities. Thank you for linking up with the Thrift Sisters.
