Happy National Best Friends Day! We're Anne Adams and Liz McGuffin of the blogs Curls and Contours and With Wonder and Whimsy. We're based in Metro Detroit, and we are best friends thanks to blogging! ELOQUII asked us to share a bit about our friendship in honor of National Best Friends Day. So in today's post, we're taking you along for our ultimate Blogger Besties Day Out!

Starting Our Day Off With Shopping

Lucky for us, we have an ELOQUII store right in our town. We really appreciate being able to shop their styles in person. It's so nice to chat with the knowledgeable staff, model for them, and get their input on putting together a complete look.

We styled our shopping looks to be comfortable and easy to get in and out of. When we have the opportunity to shop in store, we want to try on all the things! And right now ELOQUII has summer prints, lightweight fabrics, and skirt lengths for every taste.

Scouting Fresh Locations to Shoot

One of the funnest parts of being blogger besties is planning photoshoots. We love picking out looks to shoot and then finding cool new spots to photograph them. Blogging is what brought us together, and photoshoot time is girl time for us.

We are loving ELOQUII's Rare Bloom collection with its lush floral prints and fresh color stories. The fabrics play light and dark against each other for dramatic and exciting results. We were so inspired by these pieces that we sought out a botanical garden to match the collection's beauty.

Discovering New Happy Hour Spots

After a long day of shopping and shooting, we love to unwind over cocktails and appetizers. This is our time to take a step back and review the day. As teachers-turned-bloggers, we are all about evaluating what worked and what didn't, and strategizing for our next collaborations.

Being bloggers and women that love fashion, we love to dress up! And happy hour is an excuse to play up the sultry vibes. Our friendship is about celebrating each other and loving ourselves, curves and all.

We feel blessed to have found each other and a kindred spirit in one another. It's hard to find friends at 30, but we have learned that if you lead with your passions, the right people will find you. Make sure you call a friend today and tell them what they bring to your life. Happy National Best Friends Day!<3 Anne & Liz
