Because of your amazing support of The Lush List, I was invited to the rewardStyle Conference for the third year in a row. This is a conference put on each year by rewardStyle for the top 200 style bloggers worldwide who use their platform to power their sites. We are able to network with other bloggers, meet with brands and get updates on the industry, what is coming from rewardStyle and LikeToKnow.It and other educational content related to the business of blogging. Without YOU, I would not be included. So, again, thank you!
There are so many things I love about this weekend. First, the friends I’ve made. It is great to connect with others in this industry as the day to day is pretty solitary. Being able to connect with like-minded bloggers and share tips with each other is so helpful and inspiring!
One of the highlights this year was meeting all of the home and design bloggers that I’ve become friends with on Instagram. They are all so kind. Randi Garrett Design / Erin – My Texas House / Kris – Driven by Decor / Erin – Sunny Side Up / Bree – Z Design at Home / Jennifer – Decor Gold / Sarah – Life On Virginia Street / Elaine – House of Hargrove
Secondly, I love being able to sit down face to face with brands and learn about their new products and upcoming promotions. I had conversations and one-on-one meetings with Sole Society, The Daily Edited, Colleen Rothschild Beauty, eBay, My Theresa, Super Goop, Kopari and Bloomingdale’s.
Also, learning about the improvements being made to allow you to shop our content is really exciting. Did you know that you can now make a Wish List in the LikeToKnow.It app? You’ll want to start doing that as something even more exciting is coming and it has to do with alerts for these items! One other thing to note, if you used to receive the emails from LikeToKnow.It and liked shopping that way, you can like items in the app and they’ll send you an email….and…be on the lookout for emails to start coming on their own soon!
Here are the looks I wore from each event, because that is probably the most interesting to you!
THURSDAY: Opening Pool Party with Super Goop
I wore this super fun metallic stripe knit dress from Veronica Beard. You know I love this brand. The fit and style are just my favorite. I splurged on these rose gold sandals. I love a good neutral and these are a cool woven with a touch of bling. This cork clutch was just released and is sure to go quickly. I forgot my sunnies so I borrowed these from my blogger BFF Tanya.
FRIDAY: Opening Session and Key Note Speakers including the inspiring Kendra Scott, Garden Lunch with Banana Republic / Brand meeting with The Daily Edited and Classes. This khaki skirt is so fun and versatile. I’ll be wearing it a lot this spring and summer. The seersucker shirt with French cuffs will be on repeat as well.
I didn’t attend the Friday night event this year as my oldest daughter is in a play and it was opening night! This is the dress I had purchased when I was planning though.
SATURDAY: The weather turned a bit colder than expected so I wish I had had my favorite trench over this cute dress. (I’m seeing a trend…this is what happened last year, too!) Sole Society had a beautiful lunch for us and I attended more classes and brand meetings with Sole Society and the beautiful Colleen Rothschild. I introduced you to her line here.
Once again the conference was on our anniversary weekend, so Scott and I went to dinner to celebrate. As Barbara Bush famously said “At the end of your life you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child or a parent.”
I absolutely love this gorgeous dress. It fits like a dream. I can’t wait to pick up a few more from this collection.
Which look do you like the best? Do you use the LikeToKnow.It app? Would a tutorial be helpful? Let me know your thoughts below and be entered in to the drawing for the April gifts!
