Another day, another blogger event! On Wednesday, my friend + fellow blogging buddy Elizabeth of Lifestyle in Focus hosted a blogger shopping event with Kendra Scott in Saddle Creek. Kendra Scott just released a new Summer collection, so what better time for us sip, shop, and have a Memphis style blogger meetup?

I’ve always liked the traditional Kendra Scott pieces, but I was blown away by the more colorful and bold pieces that were part of the Summer Collection. The Diane Matte Statement Earrings ($85) are TO DIE FOR: they come in so many bright, fun colors!
i was obsessed with her vest. Her name is Kim too!
Our host, Elizabeth, is such a sweetheart; she’s a model and Brand Ambassador for the boutique I shoot with (Crazy Beautiful) and I love that not only do we get to play dress up almost every week, but we also get to talk about blogging and photography as well (she’s a wedding photographer). Both of us are about building community with the bloggers that are here, so we always try to support each other whenever we have events.
Shelby (how darling is her dress??)
Elizabeth + Shelby got their hair braided at House of Aglaia Salon before the event-how cute!
I’ve met most of the bloggers that attended before, but I was also able to connect with some new faces offline, which was the coolest part of the night-chatting on social media with each other is fun but it’s so much better (and authentic) to connect IN REAL LIFE!
I wasn’t able to stay for the full event (Ari and I went to a special preview screening for Crazy Rich Asians and yall, it’s so good!) but I was happy to have come out.
How fun is my palm print dress? I found it at H&M for only $13! I’ve always loved that pattern and it’s been so friggin hot + humid lately, so I decided to go for a “tropical” theme when I got dressed. It can be worn off the shoulders, but those styles are never comfortable to me so I always pull them up. 🙂
The fashion blogging community here has grown so much since I started in 2018 (this group is just a small portion). I’m thankful for a community that, for the most part, supports each other and works to be as inclusive as possible so that we can continue to grow and do great things in the city. Thanks for hosting us KS!
