Hey ya'll! I'm back home in Phoenix after a long weekend in Texas for CAMP Texas Style Council! Camp was honestly everything that I had hoped for and more. Not only did I fulfill my childhood dream of attending sleep away camp, but I also had the chance to meet so many amazing ladies that I've known and bonded with online for years and years now.

Out of the 200 ladies in attendance, I had only met one in real life (holla, Jessie!), so there were lots of people to meet and bond with throughout the weekend -- like Tieka, who I was lucky enough to have as one of my roommates. She's got the sweetest soul and made me feel instantly comfortable in our home away from home. She's an incredible lady and I hope our paths cross again one day soon! 

While I was at camp I also has the pleasure of meeting Chelsea Francis -- an amazing photographer with (no joke) THE cutest Southern accent. Chelsea and I had started talking on Twitter a few weeks back and before I knew it we were standing in the muddy woods of Spicewood, Texas together snapping photos and giggling over how I instantly moved into my poses (force of habit!) after she snapped my headshot, which she took for free for every lady that wanted one at the conference -- talk about gracious!

All photos kindly taken by Chelsea of Chelsea Laine Francis!

Outfit Details: Madewell Scarf, Madewell Necklace, Lucky Brand Sweater, Loft Jeans & Van's Sneakers.

Ever since arriving back in Phoenix on Sunday night I've been nursing a bad case of the post-camp blues. It hurts my heart that everyone lives so far a part, but I guess that just means I'll have to start taking regular road trips to visit these incredible ladies that I was able to bond with over coffee, comfy clothes and the thought that we're all in this together. 

I have so much more that I want to say and share about CAMP Texas Style Council, so I'll be back soon with more stories and photos from Camp Texlake!

  3. loved spending the weekend with you, sweets! i didn't think it was possible, but you're even kinder in person than you are online. you were the perfect den mother and such a fast friend for so many women who were feeling a little shy or having trouble adjusting to camp. you're one of a kind.
