hello, alexandria

So I had the lovely pleasure of meeting Lisa of hello, suburbia this past Sunday. She's from the DC area too and we've been trying to get together all summer but crazy life kept getting in the way. We met up in Old Town Alexandria and wandered the quaint, colorful streets window shopping and taking pictures with quite a few curious, freaked out looks from passerbys. I'm pretty sure they're all thinking- "egomaniacs?" haha ohhh blogging.

We found this old ice house on some random side street. A gem of a find! And then the stoop below belonged to a guy who happened to come home at exactly the wrong moment... haha oops.

Aw, that looks like a cute little town. :) How fun to have a meet-up! :) I really like your socks and shoes, as well as your collared denim shirt with that dress. My oldest sister just gave me one of her vintage collared denim tops and I've been trying to think of different ways to wear it. Shfank you for the inspiration! :)

We really need to catch up...you should email me sometime. :)

Ah, I'm so jealous you got to do outfit pics with another fashion blogger :) Sounds awesome.

Great location, although as a Brit I have to say I'm not entirely sure what an ice house is..

Yay! I'm so glad we finally got to meet! Bummer about your Raybans :( Hit me up the next time you're in town. Good luck at school!

How fun! I love both of your outfits, and I've actually been looking for a good quality chambray shirt. I'll have to check out Madewell this weekend. :)
