{Fashion Friday} A Big Time in Big D

Hello, Friday! I am so ready for some days off and down time. Oh wait, I've got the {One Room Challenge} to complete!!! I'm not gonna lie, I'm a little nervous about finishing this weekend...especially since I'm still waiting on some deliveries! But either way, I've already got a pretty fabulous new room. So there's that.

Last weekend I was able to crash a blogger conference that happened to be in my own backyard. It's always fun to get together with other people that love blogging as much as I do...and this was a full weekend of it! Not to mention, many of the girls have become some of my closest friends over the years, so it was basically a big, stylish, girls weekend, full of geeky blog talk. And lots of wine.

I had a lot of fun creating outfits for all the events, and thought I'd share them with you. Many are perfect for the upcoming wedding and shower season, along with date nights and parties. (See past Packing Tips posts here.)

I swapped the sandals for pink heels to dress it up a bit, before heading out with Megan.

Clutch (similar) | Pink Heels (similar)


{Meetings & Sessions | Daytime}

Blue Heels (similar) | Aztec Clutch (similar)


I posted that pic on InstaGram and asked for opinions on blue or pink...I went with blue! But mostly because I'd worn the pink heels the night before. ;) I've got a full outfit post planned on these combos...so more later.

Exposed Zipper Full Skirt | Swing Tank (one of my fave tops, I have it in several colors!)
Necklace (similar) | Zebra Heels | Aztec Clutch (similar) | Floral Heels | Pink Clutch (similar)


Since I had the luxury of driving, I didn't need to follow my tips for packing light, and threw in extra outfit and shoe options. I was especially glad for the shoes so I could choose comfier ones when my feet gave out!

These pics were at the end of a late, rain-soaked night...but it didn't dampen my affinity for my new skirt. Have you ever shopped SheInside? This was my first time...and while it took almost three weeks for my order to arrive, I was pretty darn impressed considering the prices.

Clearly this dress is a favorite of mine,  you've seen me wear it here and here...no matter the occasion, it never lets me down. The arm holes are a bit low on me (me=no boobs), so I wear a colorful bandeau, or a lacy bralette.

It was such a blast to get away with such creative, talented and fun ladies, and share a little bit of my city with them.

Oh, and my very favorite cognac bag with the zippers (seen here) is finally back in stock! It's one of my most-asked about items...so if you've been waiting, now's your chance!


{Where We Stayed}

A boutique hotel that is as chic and trendy as they come.
The location is great for downtown, but not good for walking to Dallas attractions.
The rooms are teeny, but the pool and coffee bar make up for it.

WHAT THE WHAT?!

    1. Of course we know each other...we just haven't met. ;) Yet!!

      I don't think the length of the dress will be an issue for you, but the waist is a bit higher than usual, so it took 3 sizes before I found the right fit for me.
