Scenes From Dallas + What I Wore

I got back from Dallas Sunday and since I flew thru Charlotte I decided to stay and spend the night so  I could celebrate my nephew's third Birthday.  Between the party and snuggling with Sterling and Frances who I missed dearly I didn't have time to do a post yesterday.  So, today I wanted to share some pics from my Dallas trip this past weekend.    As I mentioned before this is my third year going for this blogger conference.  It is always an excellent time!

I flew out and roomed with Caycee and Ashley who are two of my good friends here in Charleston.  We had a celebratory glass of wine pre-flight!

Thursday night was a fun rooftop pool party.  The pool at The Joule (were we stayed) is one of the most beautiful pools.

Friday morning we ordered room service.  When I am out of town room service is my guilty pleasure.   This breakfast sandwich was crazy good.

I wore this off shoulder Rebecca Taylor dress for meetings that day.

We snuck away to Neiman Marcus for a little lunch and shopping.  I love the flagship Neiman Marcus in Dallas.  The food is delicious at the Zodiak Restaurant on the 6th floor there.
I had the Shrimp Salad and it was awesome.  I love the idea of adding in quinoa to a salad, I am planning to try this at home!

That night they had a big party at The Eye.

The Eye is always such a cool setting for a party. I loved all the white paper globes they hung up everywhere.

Saturday I wore this white macrame blouse with jeans for our partial day of meetings.

A close up of the details.

We tried to get in some pool time but after about an hour and a half it turned rainy and chilly so we had to to head in.  But we did get to enjoy one cocktail and a fun lunch rooftop!  I was lucky enough to snag this swimsuit half off during a flash sale and it is one of my favorites.  The fit is awesome.

The Joule has the cutest store that I love to stop in when I am in town.  I loved these giant balls, they would be so cool in a play room.

Happy hour spread in our room while we got ready for the party that night.

Saturday night was a white party held at the Opera House.  
I can't say enough great things about this dress, I just adore it.  It also comes in black and runs TTS.

We ended up getting stuck in the hotel elevator on our way to head to the party.   Luckily it was only about 15 minutes or I would have had a full on panic attack!  This sweet man helped get us out!
A view of the party walking in.  It was a really cool setting.

Sunday it was back to reality and time to head home.  I always enjoy the conference weekend but by Sunday I am missing my family like crazy!  
This Barrington tote is a favorite I always travel with.  The size is perfect to use as your carry on in the airplane because it slides right under the seat.  I usually carry this and then a smaller purse inside with my wallet etc.
Thankful I was able to get to my nephew Finley's birthday party Sunday night!  My dad picked me up at the airport and we went straight to his party.  I was exhausted but so happy to be back safely and with my family.

Outfit Details are all Below:)
