Thanks to the wonderful world of blogging, I've met lots of fun people and some of them, right in my neck of the woods. I started reading Brittany's blog Finders Keepers back in January and I was so happy to find out she lived so close to me. We met up soon after we discovered each other's blog and since then we've tried to meet up and hang out whenever both of us had the time. This past weekend we decided it was double date time! We decided on a dinner and movie date since the Haunted Hayride was going to cost something ridiculous...Like $40 a couple! So we played it low key and enjoyed a fun evening of pictures, Mediterranean food, and a good indie movie. Which is so Ghent it's not even funny. I figured I'd give them a new experience in Norfolk, since more often than not Norfolk, VA gets a bad rap.
We made our way to a little bit of hiding spot I use for pics in my neighborhood and used the fleeting sunlight to our advantage. It was fun taking pics together, but a little awkward, since we are not used to posing with another person. So we tried out different things that worked best, tried not to laugh too much, and basically kept it natural. See us looking at leaves on the tree? Yeah, that is totally natural...hahaha!!! We had fun with it, as you can see.
And may I say, I was totally loving Brittany's outfit. She can rock an anorak jacket like nobody's business and it was so cute with her heart print dress. As for me, I went a little bit country with the cognac boots, denim dress, and my trusty vintage shawl cardigan.
