rStheCon 2018.

a few weeks ago, robbie and i went to Dallas to attend rStheCon! i know not everyone reading this knows what that is, so let me explain. rewardStyle is the affiliate company i work with and who many bloggers all over the world use as well! they also own LiketoKnow.It, which is the way to shop my clothes {and all your favorite bloggers’ clothes} on social/blog. basically, when you use our affiliate links to shop, we get a commission. kind of like shopping with a sales associate at Nordstrom, who gets a commission from your purchase! anyway, every year rewardStyle invites the top 200 bloggers based on performance to their annual conference in Dallas, which is where their HQ is. last year was my first year going and it was very exciting! i worked my butt off to get invited and it was everything i thought it would be and more: learning from some of the top people in the industry, getting to connect with brands, seeing all my favorite bloggers from across the country, etc.

this year, i was invited back not only to attend but also to speak on a panel! it was such a honor for me to speak along side Jenn from Style Charade and Anh from 9to5Chic. we spoke on the brand main stage, which means we spoke to every single one of the brands who attended this year {as opposed to the influencer main stage, where all our blogger gals listened to Aimee Song and other industry leading people at the same time}. both of these women are incredibly kind, talented, and #bossbabes, and it was such an honor to be on the same stage as them! robbie came with me to support me, and he was one of very few men in attendance which made it even more fun… and all my friends coined him the Instagram Husband of rStheCon, haha!

every day consisted of various learning and network opportunities. specific brands would host specific events like the lunches, cocktail party, pool party, speaker dinner, etc. brand booths were set up to connect with the amazing brands {LOFT, Banana Republic, Sole Society, eBay, Kendra Scott, Bloomingdales, The Daily Edited, My Theresa, to name a few} and every influencer was given three appointments to meet one-on-one with specific brands as well. there’s no better way to make an impression like in person, and rS nailed setting up these kinds of experiences for us! we also got to learn more about how to grow, adapt, and increase our business from various experts in the field, as well. not to mention, every single detail is on point thanks to the rS events committee. it’s a really awesome weekend and one that robbie and i are already seeing the benefits of just a few weeks later!

we had such a blast in Dallas and loved being there together. it was really special for me to have robbie there to support me and be with me for the duration of the weekend. i meticulously planned all my outfits for the Conference months in advance, so keep scrolling to see them and shop! i think the lavender suit {bottoms here} i wore to speak on my panel was my very fave, but the dress Kate Spade gave to me for the Speaker Dinner came in at a close second. thanks to rewardStyle for such a fun weekend and amazing memories! xx

i wore this jumpsuit the first night to the pool party hosted by SuperGoop! it was the perfect tropical ensemble for a gorgeous Dallas evening poolside!

i mentioned this above, but i wore this lavender suit {bottoms here} to the panel i spoke on! i honestly felt so put together and like a million bucks in this powersuit. i’ve been crushing hard on all things purple lately! plus, the Chanel earrings i picked up just a few weeks prior definitely pulled the entire outfit together!

the most fun part about having robbie there to support me was matching our outfits for specific events! we wore these co-ordinated floral looks for the cocktail hour hosted by Express. i think i was more excited for robbie’s floral blazer than my own outfit!

this was the perfect outfit for a day of meetings with brands and a garden lunch sponsored by LOFT! i love love love this floral wrap top by Ganni!

Kate Spade gifted me this absolutely stunning silk and lace dress to wear to the Speaker Dinner, which was hosted by eBay. i seriously felt like a princess in this dress! it’s so gorgeous and fit like a glove! the dinner itself was such an honor, so delicious, and of course the decor was on point!

i seriously LOVE these candid shots that were taken during the LikeToKnow.It finale party! such fun memories!

another absolutely stunning gifted dress, this time from Mac Duggal! there’s nothing i love more than a pretty sequin number and this floral pattern is to die for. i meant to bring this as a change of clothes after the Speaker Dinner and before the LikeToKnow.It finale party {which were at the same location}, but amidst the hurry from one event to the next i forgot to bring my change-of-clothes bag. luckily, we took these photos the day before! thanks to Mac Duggal for such a stunning piece to add to my wardrobe.
