On Thursday, I met up with the lovely Olivia of Baubles to Bubbles for a delicious feast at Bakersfield, home to some out-of-this-world, can I please have another plate (or five), finger-lickin’ good, Mexican-inspired dishes. As mentioned via my Instagram post-feast, if you haven’t been to Bakersfield, you haven’t lived. And I will stand by my statement forever.We talked about blogging over chips, queso and salsa verde. Olivia is great, and seriously stylish. Conversation flowed like the margarita in my glass, and I can’t wait to work with her more in the future. I was reminded how nice it is to meet other bloggers in the Cincinnati area. We wandered over to Washington Park after our meal, and I’m forever thankful I chose to wear my elastic pants. A pair of pants that caused a bus driver to stop her bus, open the door and ask me, “Where’d you get those pants, girl?” So yes, now I can cross “stop traffic” off my to-do list. Thanks, pants.Outfit photography by Olivia Johnson.
