Mango Girl

I had the privilege this week of meeting in person the wit behind the style blog, Mango Girl.
We instantly clicked way before our first meet-up when we realized that we share so many things in common! It turned out we went to the same university, have a common friend (her schoolmate in grade school was one of my best friends in college!) and live a block from each other here in the fabulous city of Minnnnnnneapolis!

Our meet-up was a mere confirmation that we were bff's since birth; we just didn't realize it until now. Mango Girl, my online blogger friend a few weeks ago, is today Kat, my ever so charming and pretty photoshoot buddy!

Armed with a few doses of style and Kat's trademark dimple smile, we posed and strutted our stuff in the Mill City Ruins, a historic landmark along the Mississipi River. And borrowing Tyra's line from ANTM, "here's our best shots"!

I'm wearing:
-- top: Forever 21 -- linen pants: Armani Collezioni -- shoes: Ferragamo Ribes
and my personality tucked behind my ear: a pink satin flower pin


  1. LOL Ahem. Is it appropriate for me to be the first to comment on this post? haha! So blushing right now!

    Grace, thank you very much for inviting me to this photo shoot! My golly, I had a great time! Tell your hubz (can't post his name, right?), he is so good at photography that even my boring 'hands akimbo' poses turned out fine. I hope I didn't ruin for you too many shots. So worried really!

    I feel so lucky you and your hubby live a block away. haha! I get to join in your photo session. Don't worry I won't be a pest.

    Love your summery pastel outfit!...I should have worn something lighter as well come to think of it! And wish I could do my hair up as lovely as you did. I thought the flower was a nice touch. As you noticed, I can only manage to do ponytail. haha!

    Minneapolis looks hot!

    OK, till next time!

  2. So PRETTY pics!! you two looks adorable!


  3. YAY YAY YAY!!!

    You look like you were attached/related to each other always. That's incredible gorgeous!
    BIG KISS to you and wishes for a wonderful and relaxing Sunday!! s.

  4. Hello on a wonderful sunny sunday, Grace!
    Now we have to call you "The 2 sisters from Minneapolis";)
    It was so sweet of you to read that "Mango Girl (..) is today Kat, my ever so charming and pretty photoshoot buddy!"

  6. I'm so happy that you two met and connected. And that's incredible...the mutual friend, the same school, and the neighborly was meant to be!! And you two look gorgeous in every shot! I think this is the start of a beautiful friendship...

  7. You too look beautiful, great pictures!

  8. I love these shots of you guys! Especially the backdrop of the factory. So industrial chic! And you look so sassy with that flower behind your ear ;)

    P.S. Isn't it great when you connect with blogger friends in real life and discover connections deeper and more meaningful than a passion for fashion?

  9. You two are just the cutest! Your outfits are really cute too! What a great story, you both just found each other through blogging??? That's soooooo cool! x

  10. how nice that you both live so close to each other!!! and now you are bff! so wonderful. you both look great! :) xxx

    Have a great week!

  12. Hi Grace. Thank you for dropping by my blog and for leaving a comment. I really appreciate it. In response to your comment, I'm not entirely sure I know who Sofie is. I may recognize her blog name/title but I'm still getting familiar with bloggers and their actual names.

    All the best,

  19. Wow! You have such fabulous style and the photography is so beautiful.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. :) Spain isn't really that expensive compared to other cities like London, Paris, Moscow or in Italy. Too bad the trip was canceled, maybe next time.;)

    Have a nice day ahead! :)

  20. Hi Grace. Just dropping by again to say thank you for leaving another comment. I also wanted to say that this is a great post. I really enjoyed reading about your new friendship with Kat and it's really cool how you guys met via blogger. I hope to see more pictures of the both of you in future blog post.

    And yes, Martina is definitely a friend we have in common. She is just the sweetest person, who is also a faithful blog reader of mine. I see she leaves comments on your blog as well. She's really great.

    I hope you're having a good week and I look forward to reading your next post :)
