A Galintine’s Day Weekend + Win Free Dresses For A Year With Lulu*s!!

Today I am honored to be partnering up with Lulu*s to share a little bit about how my friendship with Julie from Orchid Grey started. And give you (and your bff) a chance to win free dresses for a year. A YEAR!


One of my most favorite reasons why I love blogging so much is because of the community. 6 years ago I got to meet one of my very first blogging friends in real life. I followed Julie’s blog and knew she worked as an admission counselor at an art college in our state. I was bringing my high school students to a portfolio review at a local college and thought “I wonder if Julie would be there?”. We emailed back and forth and realized we were actually going to be at the same portfolio review day. So crazy. See? We were meant to be friends. We met up the night before the portfolio review and the rest is history. We have been close friends since! I am so thankful for her. We have shared many a fashion week hotels together, bounced thousands of blog stories, ideas and struggles off each other, traveled to conferences, swaps, hundreds of thrift stores, but my favorite part are the times were Kev, the girls and I just get to hang out and enjoy Julie and Chris’s company. Low Key. Lots of fun. Tons of memories.

So when Lulu*s approached us asking if we would be interested in celebrating Galintine’s Day together. It was a very quick and loud YES!! We jumped in the car and headed to Rochester to celebrate a few weekends early. Did you know Rochester is in the middle of Albany and Pittsburgh? I know. Crazy, right? We had a fabulous weekend together. We spent lots of time at the Cafe my sister works at. Java’s might just be one of my favorite places. So full of life and color. I think we ended up there 3 times in 1.5 days. It was the perfect place to catch up.
