The answer is yes! When I started blogging a few months ago, I feared it would be difficult to meet other bloggers and form a sisterhood. I was so wrong! I’ve met amazing women through Style Collective; not only are they a great support system, but they are also a wealth of information and super fun to hang out with! There is nothing but good energy and good vibes when I get together with my Style Collective girls, which is why I had so much fun at our recent get together!

I don’t want to talk too much about the meet up because I think photos are worth a thousand words, but I do want to touch on my favorite part of the night. Debbie of To Thine Own Style Be True, our event planner extraordinaire, shared how Style Collective has been instrumental in the development of her blog. Every other attendee followed suit, and it was SO refreshing to experience a diverse group of women telling their stories and uplifting one another. If you are a fashion/lifestyle blogger looking for a sisterhood to inspire, educate, and have FUN with, I encourage you to check out Style Collective!
Mesa of Costa Mesa was the perfect venue for our gathering. I loved the open seating arrangement and the upscale vibe. The food was also YUM; I had the grilled marinated shrimp and ate every bite! I fell in love with the patio area, complete with a fire pit and an instagram worthy background. In a room full of bloggers I’m sure you can imagine how quickly we all flocked to this area!
The lovely Shawna Henrie of Bleudog Fotography and Bleudog Floral who also happens to be part of our Style Collective sisterhood was our photographer for the night! She was sweet enough to take headshots of all the girls and put together the gorgeous floral arrangements seen below (talk about multi-talented!) All photo credit for the images in this blog post goes to her 🙂
Ok, you guys know I love free stuff so of course I gagged over the amazing swag bag we all received! So many great products, which I talked about in detail in my instastories a few weeks ago. Thank you to everyone who sponsored this event, your products are much appreciated!

My Lovers +Friends Adriana romper from Revolve was the perfect outfit choice for the occasion. It’s very comfortable and the fabric is light and breathable. It also features embroidery, the hot trend of the season! I posted a sneak peak of this romper on my instagram a couple weeks ago, but here is the complete look!
