IT'S FRIDAYYYYYY!!! I cannot tell you how excited I am. I am over this week and ready for a nice weekend. We have lots of fun plans and I.am.ready. for them. Seriously "all work and no play makes Meg something, something.... " name that show!

Anyway, clearly, I need a weekend.  Be sure to follow along with me for all the fun! In the meantime, I wanted to finally tell you all about our latest Minneapolis Bloggers meet up! I have been to most of them on a monthly basis and this was probably one of my favorites. Also, what I felt like I needed to learn the most.

The focus of this session was on street style photography. Lauren of the Lo Meyer blog was our teacher for the day. We met up at Pryes Brewery for beer and a lesson. It was really a gorgeous brewery and I had no idea that it was there, so noted :)  We also had Style Trolley on hand to borrow from for the shoots if we wanted to. A mobile boutique? Yes please! Lauren spoke a bit giving tips on poses, some photography tips and what she does. I literally took notes, and I'm not the only one. She appears so comfortable on camera and it's something I work on constantly.

After her teach, we got a chance to shoot with four different photographers. You only got a few minutes with each but you got a chance to practice your skills. I have never shot with a professional photographer before so I was kind of nervous. We were also with other bloggers so it was like performing. Unfortunately, I only got to three of them. It was fun to work with a couple of people with different styles to see how everyone works and what I responded best to.



With two of the photographers, I was finally able to get this look shot for you all. I am going to share my favorites from both photographers with you.  First though, this look. The tie front has been a very popular trend right now, and I don't see it leaving soon. It's just a fun and flattering look for basically everyone. Something very casual that is perfect for summer. With this top, I also really loved the color. Like a blush/nude almost. It's not brown enough to be beige, but not exactly pink, so somewhere in the middle. I have been all over the whites/nudes/blushes this summer. I just love how easy this is. It also has a feel for me that just matches these jeans. Light wash and distressed that matches both the tone of the shirt in color and mood. I almost wore shorts but I wanted to be a little more dressed up for the event. Plus, I just love these jeans so much AND they are on sale! I capped off the look with a delicate necklace and my go-to block heel that I have had for years!
