Meeting a local blogger & Blank NYC cargo skinny

One thing I love about blogging is "meeting" new friends. Living in a very small city, the chance to meet local bloggers in person is very slim. I thought I might be the only blogger who are from Ohio. Few months ago, Danielle of A Love Affair With Paper sent me an email asking for a tailor recommendation. Although I couldn’t help her much since I don’t have a regular tailor, I am glad to know a local blogger. One day, she said she has won a pair of skinny cargos from Lucky magazine but they were a bit small for her. She was wondering if I am interested. Of course, I am! Since I didn't own any skinny cargos previously, I was happy to take them off her hands. We met after work for a cup of coffee and a bit of shopping. It was just a fun and relaxing evening. Too bad that neither one of us brought our cameras. The iphone pic was just too blurry to share. Thank you so much, Danielle for thinking of me. A dinner date already planned for the 4 of us! I'll be sure to bring the proper camera with me this time =)



What I am wearing:
Cargo Skinny: Blank NYC - size 25 c/o Danielle (buy here)
Shirt: Ann Taylor white button down shirt - size 0P (buy here)
Shoes: Talbots suede chunky heel city sandals (buy here)
Belt: BR exotic skinny belt (buy similar here)

How fun! The cargos look great on you, you lucked out getting them! I love your pop of yellow!

I love the cargo pants! They look fantastic on you. I was actually contemplating the J Brand cargo pants but I'm hesitating to pull the trigger. I mean, what can you pair them with?

Danielle said...

You look so good in these! I'm so glad I was able to find a good home for them as it would have been heart-wrenching to just donate them. Can't wait for dinner!

Awww.. so nice! She seems very lovely girl. I a bit envy You, because You had such an amazing chance to meet blogger. Oh, I wish there was some local blogger to meet as well, but as I live in small town a chance to meet is verrrrrryyyy little.
You look amazing in those cargo pants. Looks like thay would be made just for You.

@Danielle Thanks again, Danielle. I can't wait for dinner, either =)

@Anna I would pair them with what you normally pair with skinny jeans.
