Randolph Blogger Happy Hour

This weekend has been amazing. I drove into Chicago on Friday to meet up with my dear friends Andrea from Blonde Bedhead and Veronika from Tick Tock Vintage. I was so excited to meet Veronika. We clicked instantly and I swear I don't think I could love that girl more. The three of us had so much fun. We went shopping for a bit, grabbed some delicious ice-cream and all got ready to head to the Randolph Street Market Blogger Happy Hour to meet up with other Chicago-based bloggers! I always love seeing those girls!

The blogger happy-hour was held at Plumber's Hall and there were plenty of free drinks! It was my first time drinking champagne... ew! Veronika was cracking up at me and drinking the rest of my drink. I opted for the rum and diet coke instead. It was so fun taking outfit shots with all of the girls outside in an alleyway! It's always amazing for me to get with a group of girls who understand the concept of 'outfit shots'. Haha!

All of the Chicago-based girls are so sweet. I absolutely love meeting up with all of them. From right to left, here are the bloggers in order: Sabrina from Defying My Closet, Tara from Haute Lunch, Tabitha from Fashion Therapist, Leilani from Thriftaholic, Lisa from Archives Vintage, Emily from Sartoriography, Veronika from Tick Tock Vintage, Andrea from Blonde Bedhead and me!

It's such a joy to get dressed up with girls, take photos, have some drinks, walk the entire way home with arms linked giggling over insane stories. We went home to have a couple of drinks before 'heading out on the town' but instead ended up laughing at dumb YouTube videos (old gregg!) on the internet and falling asleep early. Love these girls!

Thanks so much to the Randolph Street Market for hosting the blogger happy hour and providing snacks and drinks! It was such a great time and super fun to have a sneak peek of the market! I love going out to Chicago for fun events and can't wait for the next one. Thanks to all of the girls for hanging out - I had so much fun! xo
