This past weekend was really great! I got to hangout and collaborate with some of the fabulous, street style, creative people who call Sacramento their home. On Saturday, I got to have brunch with two seriously gorgeous fashion bloggers Ruthie and Candice. They have both been on the fashion blogging scene for over a year now. I was really looking forward to having some girl time, getting the deets on their blogging experience and eating a LOT!! We decided to have our brunch date at Bacon & Butter which is a delicious place to eat in East Sac! If you haven’t been there, you really must check it out. The wait is usually over an hour long (because it’s that good), so we put our name in and headed to Chocolate Fish to grab a coffee to tie us over. I’ve gotten to know these beauties through an amazing community of fashion bloggers called Style Collective. Ruthie happens to be the cofounder! She’s doing such a beautiful job with it. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of women to be the support system that helps me navigate the unpredictable waters of the blogging world. We cheer each other on and I am constantly inspired and challenged by these gals and all that they are accomplishing. I just wish we all lived in the same city so that we could have brunch together! Now that would be amazing. I have included all their deets below, so check them out!
Local photographer, Xing
On Sunday, I had the chance to collaborate with an amazing local photographer, Xing of the Instagram account Caliallstaring. I’ve been a long time fan and follower of his amazing IG! I recently had the pleasure of meeting him in person during an Instameet for Sacramento Fashion Week. He is seriously talented! He was incredibly sweet and asked if he could do a shoot with me sometime, which I of course said “yes” to. Next thing I know, we’re doing a shoot a week later! Xing wanted to do a street style inspired shoot, so we met up and shot around midtown where there are tons of walls that make ahmazing backgrounds! I crossed the street a lot, posed in alleyways, and worked on perfecting my hair flip. I was so happy that Xing possessed hidden modeling talent so he could show me how it’s done. My modeling skills are in need of some serious help! I just never know what to do with my arms most of the time, but I’m learning (I hope). I was able to get in lots of practice and just have fun with a new photographer and friend. Although I really think Xing should’ve been the one modeling! *wink* The photos he took turned out fabulous, which is no surprise there. I think our street style shoot went great and I’m excited to share the photos with you! I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend of building friendships and expressing creativity.
Thanks for stopping by! Meaghan xx
