Disclosure: I received products for the conference in exchange for this review. My words and opinions are HONEST and are my own.
Let me tell you- at blog conferences- it’s all about the fashion! Or…at least it is for me. I love going to blog conferences and seeing what everyone wears. My dream is to be back at a size 4 again and actually attend Lucky Fabb like my blog friend, Kelly (I mean…come on…isn’t she gorgeous?!) Although I wasn’t at the fashion-crazy Lucky Fabb last week, I did have the amazing opportunity to go to Bloggy Boot Camp and rock out one of my favorite shops, Hazel and Olive Boutique.
I know I’ve talked in the past about many different boutiques, but here’s the thing- I’ve decided to stay exclusive with Hazel and Olive Boutique. I told y’all in my Making the Most Out of Your Blog with Bloggy Boot Camp Dallas: Brand Edition post that if I’m working with a brand, it’s because I absolutely believe in that company. Taylor, from Hazel and Olive once had a blog, and believes a lot in bloggers, their readers, and their opinions.
She works hard to consistently bring new arrivals to her shop EVERY DAY at 8 pm (and I may or may not spastically “like” each picture on Instagram when they pop up because I want everything). She has FREE shipping for EVERY order, which seriously makes me love the shop even more.
After our first day of Bloggy Boot Camp (and learning SO much awesome info), Neely, Ashley, and I decided to miss out on the BBC dinner to spend time with our Dallas friends, Amber, Caitrin, and Taylor (Neely’s neighbor). We all changed and got ready for dinner only to find….
Ashley, Amber, and I ALL were wearing stuff from Hazel and Olive! (and it was NOT planned!)
Saturday I had NO clue what I wanted to wear. I went into Neely’s room several times and asked Ashley and Neely what I should wear from my Hazel and Olive collection. I wanted the BEST to be seen at the conference! I ended up picking out the Catch Her If You Can dress (which unfortunately isn’t listed anymore) to wear with leggings and boots. The bell sleeves were SO much fun and the bright colors just had everyone saying such nice things to me.
At the end of the last day, everyone headed upstairs to the Mirassou wine party (their moscato was probably the best I’d ever had- and I’ve had MANY) where we drank wine, hung out with our old and new blog friends, and had absolutely wonderful conversations with some awesome ladies. Then, it was off to dinner at Mi Cocina! I’m not gonna lie… Mi Cocina is a favorite of mine. I love their Sour Cream Enchiladas, and actually made my own copy cat version because no one in Waco even has them.
I may or may not have had a Mambo Taxi at dinner to keep me cozy, which meant to obligatory selfies of my cute Hazel and Olive Wave Too Cute top in the Mi Cocina bathroom. Oops! I loved the crocheted neckline and shoulders with the layered sleeves. As a fan of statement necklaces, the Wave Too Cute top didn’t even need a necklace because of the detail. I paired mine with another pair of skinnies with my Ugg boots to keep me warm.
