I’ve been so fortunate in the beginning stages of blogging at how many fabulous ladies I’ve connected with via my Instagram, which some of you may know I began as my “pre-blog”. The ATX blogger mixer that I attended Thursday night was no different. I was so excited to finally get to meet many of these beautiful ladies in person, some of whom directly inspired me to start my own blog.
I wore this fun polka dot maxi to the mixer that I dressed up for an evening downtown with my favorite black d’orsays, coral envelope clutch, gold jewelry, and green Ray-Bans. Using bright pops of color is one of my favorite ways to accessorize an otherwise mostly toned-down outfit and give it that eye-catching wow factor. Sky-high stilettos, a gold-studded bag, and my beloved neon green aviators were just the ticket to make me feel fabulous and confident to meet such inspiring women! I had a great time at Cover 3 mingling and snacking on their ah-mazing apps and desserts, and to my delight, the night didn’t end there! After the mixer we headed to the Stitch Fix Influencers Party at their incredible rooftop office just a block from our State Capitol (can you say office view of my dreams?!) to help kick off the opening of their Austin headquarters. It was a simply perfect night and all around so motivational and inspiring!
I promptly turned right around and dressed this same maxi a little more casual for my sister’s baby shower that weekend, pairing it with these sueded pink wedges (yes, she’s having a girl!), a turquoise colored pebble leather cross body bag, some simple gold stud earrings, and my hair pulled up in a side knot — totally girly and perfect for the shower! This dress is so easy and light to wear on these quickly-getting-warmer Texas days that I can tell I’ll be finding more ways to style it throughout the summer. I don’t think there’s anything I love more on those hot sticky afternoons than an airy maxi that doesn’t have too much fabric-on-skin contact and can still make me feel pretty and feminine. Thanks for reading and see below for details on getting these fun summer pieces!
