Flickr Friend Meet-Up

a
Today I was lucky enough to meet up with Flickr friend Andreja (aka duckrabbit) since she and her husband are spending the summer in Lancaster. Our afternoon activities included, but were not limited to, munching on delicious crepes, hitting up all of the best vintage shops in town, trying on pretty summer dresses, discussing the advantages of small town living, sipping iced coffee (or frozen hot chocolate in my case) and general girl talk.

Andreja scored two of the cutest cotton summer dresses from Zap & Co. I pranced around in that cute brown and plaid number at Smilin' Gal but didn't end up buying (yet!). I was also eyeing those straw hats with wide grosgrain ribbons and a particular plaid umbrella that I may have to make my own at some point. It was all around fun and hopefully the first of many meet-ups over the summer.

The plaid dress is absolutely adorable. It must have taken a lot of restraint not to buy it...It fits you so perfectly, with such yummy autumn colors!
