Hey there, lovelies!

The last week has been a whirlwind! I can’t believe a week ago I was arriving in Dallas for the rewardStyle conference and, today, I’m writing this post from a cafe in London. Packing for trips like these can be challenging because you want your outfits to reflect you and your style but you just never know if the weather is going to take a turn or if someone else is planning to wear the exact same outfit you packed, which has happened, ha! Obviously, it’s no big deal … I always just pack a few extra outfits and just hope for the best!

Sometimes, though, I’ll pack something that I really like but I’m almost positive I won’t wear and then I end up wearing it and being like omg, I’m so glad I packed this!! This casual off-the-shoulder pastel plaid dress was one of those items on this trip! When I was packing, I kind of felt like it was too casual and more appropriate for a beach getaway but, after wearing it to my friend Courtney’s house for a little conference kick-off manicure party [which was sponsored by this amazing new Dallas based app called, Cherry! Check it out Dallas gals if you haven’t heard of it! It’s pretty nifty!] and completely changed my tune about it after the get together! It fits true to size and it pretty loose making it great for those hot summer months! Something I will say, that I don’t so much like, is that it’s really tight in the bust. I don’t have a lot going on in that department and it was hard for me to button the ones around my bust. That should not be happening! I think it’s a major design flaw. You can even tell in these photos that the third and fourth button from the top are pulling pretty good. I’m so used to things being too big on me so I was like whatever … I’m just going to embrace it! Thankfully, none of the buttons popped off and it was a comfortable outfit to wear to catch up with girlfriends! I think it would be perfect for, like I said, a beach getaway or a summer night out with your girlfriends or significant other but, if you’re busty, you might need to go up a size!

Just a heads up! There’s only one day left to enter the Baublebar gift card giveaway that’s going on right now in THIS post! If you haven’t signed up for the Ask Alyson Haley newsletter that goes out every Wednesday, don’t forget to do that! 🙂 This week, I answered questions that have come in regarding graduation dress options, cute Spring jackets and coats for those who have cooler Spring seasons, my favorite bloggers to follow and the planners that I think are the most helpful! When you email me questions, I will let you know if you’re question will be answered in an upcoming Ask Alyson Haley newsletter. It’s the best way to get back to questions and have the answers reach the most people!

Also, I added before and after photos of my eyebrows into yesterdays post so you can see the BEFORE microblading and after microblading photos. It’s pretty crazy! Check it out HERE!

That’s it for today, pretties! Would y’all want me to include some information about what the rewardStyle conference is like, what we do, if there’s underlying competition, if it’s really enjoyable or more stressful than anything else, what my takeaways were this year, etc?? I’d be happy to answer any questions you have in an upcoming rewardStyle conference outfit post! Let me know what you want to know in the comments below! xo.

Editor's Notes

My perforated wedges are so cute and comfortable. They run true to size but the zipper on the back of one of them is sometimes hard to unzip. #gottabehonest

These new Baublebar earrings are so fun! I can’t wait to wear them with more outfits on the trip I’m currently on!

I know everyone wears this bag but, honestly, it is really fun and surprisingly fits quite a few necessities in it! Mine is always selling out but there are so many other color options HERE. This one seems to be a popular one this year.

    Yes!! Would love to hear more details on the conference!! I would love to attend one day, as I think there is so much to learn!! I also REALLY appreciate that you treat it as a work conference and attend the events, visit with friends, go to the classes, and network with brands. It’s discouraging to see some people not fully experience everything the conference has to offer when there are many of us that would LOVE to attend! Hope you publish a recap of it all!!

      Hey Morgan! I definitely treat it like a work conference and happy that you can tell I take it seriously. I had no idea there were people that didn’t do all the things on their schedule! I get what you mean, though! I’d be happy to share my experience in an upcoming post and, keep up the great job with your blog! It’s totally possible for you to make it to the conference someday! xo.

    I really do love this dress but sadly I won’t buy from Urban Outfitters. I’ve boycotted them years ago after they did some things. Love those wedges too. I actually bought them but had to return since they hurt my feet.

    Omg! So I went and bought this after seeing you post it at the conference. I totally agree about the bust. I typically wear and XS and the bust was so tight the button area gapped open. However when going up to the small, the bust fit, but the off the should part was too big and fell down. Major design flaw! But looks totally adorable on you!
