txsc mixer | part one

denim jacket: Nordy Rack (similar) // dress: Francesca's (similar) // booties: Charlotte Russe (similar) // necklace & belt: Target
This is what I wore to the first Texas Style Council mixer (minus the belt).

So, I'm a terrible blogger and didn't manage to snap any photos during this first blogger mixer. I was a ball of nerves and felt much calmer deep in conversation than trying to survey the event through my iPhone. This is probably a good thing socially, but it means I don't have much to share from the actual event.

The mixer took place at Langford Market, one of my favorite 2nd Street shopping spots. I met so many lovely girls, some of whom I've followed for a while (and proceeded to fangirl) and some who I'm stoked to start following and get together with in the near future.

I've never been to a blogger mixer, so I didn't really know what to expect. I thought it would be really intense and that all of these incredible and well-known bloggers would totally ignore me because they've never heard of me. This was totally not the case. Everyone was super friendly and talked openly about why they blog and how great it is to meet like-minded ladies.

I was most impressed with the rush of feminism in the room. It was International Women's Day, which I thought was really special, but I didn't really expect to find a lot of bloggers who share my feminist mindset. I talked with a lot of faith & fashion bloggers and each of them proceeded to tell me about how important feminism is to them being a person of faith and a blogger. I was blown away and felt so at home with these women. Austin seriously has the best bloggers.

Here are a few of the fab ladies I met on day one:
Indiana of Adored Austin
Fran + Aurelia (sister-in-laws!) of You Frill Me
Michelle of MJP Style
Nikki of Chanel Wears
Gina of Keystone 54
Camille of Pretty and Punk

    Man, if only I still lived in Austin. We'd be besties and I would've gone to this thing witchu. I've never heard of anything blog-related happening in Michigan. :( It's too boring here.
