Getting back to my usual blogging self. Last week was hectic at the 9 to 5 but I had the pleasure of being on a panel of female entrepreneurs at Candid Conversations presented by Nicole Garner and Shanti Das at Aurum Lounge. Feel free to Google those two. Two very big deals.
We discussed everything from finances, social media and how to successfully build partnerships. It was a fabulous night indeed. (Including complimentary drinks from Qream and delicious cupcakes from Petite Bites.) It was really humbling and such an honor to be mentioned with these ladies. I can’t say I never thought I would be able to do something like this one day. But I certainly would have never guessed that I would have been doing it last Wednesday. That was completely out of sight. Panelists included Sheri Riely of Glue Inc, Chantel Watkins of Honesty Jewelry, Eva Burks of E.Burks Development, Nicci Gilbert of Curvato and Shannon Nash of Nash Management Group & The Green Room.
How cute is this Savannah Rae dress? Obsessed! This yellow is literally my favorite color for the season. Really made me feel like summer. And this gold plated collar necklace from Filthy Magic is LIFE. Easily my new favorite accessory. Trying so hard not to overdose on it. Almost impossible. (Thanks, Ria!) Paired it up with my new birthday gift to myself – the most amazing ZARA bag in the history of life. That cognac color really pops. It’s certainly a conversation starter.
I really wanted to wear something on the panel that represented me as a style blogger, but also an ensemble where people could take me seriously.
