Here we go! Day 8 of the fall 10×10 Challenge.
Today I met not 1 but 2 of my favorite local bloggers: Allison of The Thoughtful Closet and Ellie of Selflessly Styled.
This is one of the reasons why I started this blog, to get out of my own bubble and make connections with inspiring people. It can be awkward to reach out to people you follow on Instagram and then meet them in real life, but it usually dissipates after the first couple minutes. Trust me, I've been doing that for the past 3 years!
My Day 8 Outfit
Sweater + Skirt // Black + White = My favorite combo for this season.
The options are starting to be limited by the time you reach the end of the challenge, so I'm glad that I planned today and tomorrow's outfits in advance.
Sweater - Old. Similar here.
Skirt - Old. Similar here.
Shoes - Danner, made in Portland, OR.
Lately, I've been working a lot from coffee shops, even meeting friends for work dates. The document organizer I used as a laptop sleeve featured in this look was a present from Octave (yep, he's got good taste!). If I remember well, it's made of vegetable leather, he got it from Poketo like, a year ago.
Have you ever reached out to someone you follow on Instagram and met them in real life? How did it go?
