Zapatistas with #blmgirls

Friday, I met up with a great group of bloggers for dinner at Zapatistas. Fab Ellis was in town for the weekend and invited her Bloggers Like Me sisters to join her for dinner.

I'm always excited to meet other bloggers. Unfortunately, I haven't had many opportunities to do that. Not just being in the same space but actually sitting down, sharing a meal and learning a little bit more about each other. We had great conversation and noshed on Mexican food. (SN: if you go to Zapatistas make sure to try the fish tacos. They were the hit of the table.)


My outfit for the evening included a 2 piece self sewn jersey dress. I made it a few years ago. It's from a Dolce & Gabbana pattern. Naturally I had to use leopard print fabric. Last seen here

I wore a camp shirt over it because I wanted to add some color and have more coverage. 

Wedge sandals are 9West and I'm carrying my thrifted Fendi bag. I haven't seen it in a while. Rediscovered it while unpacking!

Earlier that day, I had time to paint nails and instagram it. V took a 2 hour nap!!
