RewardStyle Conference Takeaways + Recap


I recently returned from Dallas where I attended my first RewardStyle Conference. Talk about inspirational, stressful, fun, and informative all rolled up into one! If you follow a number of bloggers, I’m sure you’ve seen the hashtag #rStheCon shoved in your face all weekend long. But a number of people had questions about what really goes on at these things (I know I did!), so I thought I would take you through the conference and share my takeaways and outfits.

I’d followed other bloggers through this weekend in the past, but nothing can prepare you for the whirlwind it actually is – let’s just say I haven’t worn heels or makeup since coming home or don’t intend to any time soon. It’s three days straight of classes, brand meetings, networking, and parties designed to whip your blogger butt into being the best it can be. While there were so many lessons, big and small, I learned, I wanted to share the overarching themes of the weekend.


The Perfect Spring Dress



Dress: Ace & Jig (Skirt Version Here) / Sunglasses: Quay (Only $50!) / Bag: Chanel / Heels: Sam Edelman / Earrings: BaubleBar / Bracelets: The Styled Collection, Kate Spade, BaubleBar

I was going to hold off on posting this look from Day 2 of the RewardStyle Conference, but this gorgeous dress from Ace & Jig is BACK IN STOCK! It honestly may be my favorite piece in my closet. Not only are the colors so pretty, it is so easy to throw on and dress up or down. Apparently, folks have the same idea I do about it, because it is almost always out of stock 🙁 Luckily, there are a few left today AND even a few left of the skirt version of it. For size reference, I am wearing a small.

I paired it with the Chanel Grand Shopping Tote and y’all, this bag is show-stopping. I received so many compliments on it this weekend and had to confess to everyone that I didn’t pay nearly full price for it. Thanks to Trendlee, you can get luxury preowned handbags for a fraction of retail price. I was worried that this bag would look used, but it honestly was untouched. Trendlee is now my secret go-to for used designer bags! But if you are looking to get the designer look for WAY less, this $26 Chloe dupe would pair perfectly with this look.


Lashes & Lips



Top: SheIn c/o (Only $13!) / Skirt: Express / Boots: Hunter / Bag: SheIn c/o (Only $25) / Earrings: BaubleBar / Sunglasses: Karen Walker / Bracelets: The Styled Collection, Kate Spade, BaubleBar

Happy Monday y’all! I just got back to Charlotte last night from the RewardStyle conference and am worn out! It was so much fun getting the opportunity to meet so many bloggers than I have been following for years and learn how we can continue to grow our blogs. But phew, it was overwhelming (in the best way possible!) I have already scheduled a massage for Wednesday.

I’m getting a late start today thanks to being conference hungover, plus the rainy week we’re in the midst of here. At least the rain means I can break out my favorite pink Hunter Boots! I paired them with this $13 lips and lashes pullover and this $25 Chloe dupe. I sized up in the sweatshirt (to be honest), so I can wear it as a PJ top.

Be sure to check back here Wednesday, because I will be rounding up ALLLL the outfits I wore this weekend at the conference. Spoiler alert – they’re my favorites of all time 🙂
