I recently attended the 8th Her Conference in Los Angeles where I got to connect with so many women, learn how to start and grow a business, find out how to effectively build and maintain a social media presence, and I was also recognized for being named Most Inspiring InfluenceHer of the Year.
I have been involved with Her Campus, since I was in college and I attended College Fashion Week. A couple of years ago, I also joined the InfluenceHer Collective, which helps me navigate the influencer space while connecting with other bloggers and some of my favorite brands! This year, the collective hosted its first ever InfluenceHer Awards, and I won the Most Inspiring InfluenceHer category. I was so excited and honored to receive the award, and I hope to continue inspiring you all for years to come! Aside from being recognized on stage, I got to hear from Jessica Alba on how and why she created her brand Honest Beauty, and how she balances being an actress and entrepreneur. I also witnessed Gabi Gregg, of GabiFresh, speak about how she has been able to pioneer fashion-forward styles and initiatives for the plus size community.
It was such a great experience to be around so many like-minded women. I left the conference feeling so inspired to push my brand to new limits and elevate the content I deliver my audience.
I also got to meet up with some of my best social media friends IRL! Bianca Karina and Karen Vega have been some of my favorite digital friends, and I was so excited to meet them at the conference, as well as make new besties!
I recommend that all creative, young women, both in college and new to the workforce, attend Her Conference to learn how they can stand out and establish themselves!
Now, shall we talk about this fit?! OMG. This may be my favorite outfit EVER. I scored the whole look from Fashion Nova Curve! The Only Have You Mini Dress is under this MAGNIFICENT No Secrets Allowed Jacket. I have never had a lilac / lavender look, but this outfit seriously rocked my world.
