Toady’s What I Wore Wednesday is a little bit different, while you’ll still get an outfit post, I also wanted to tell you about the amazing opportunity that I had earlier this month! I had heard about the blogging conference Go Blog Social around the blogging community before but knew that it was usually held in Kansas City and so I always thought that I wouldn’t have been able to attend. But through the grapevine I found out that there would be a mini version or Pop-Up in Chicago and needless to say, was ecstatic! You see, recently I have been all about learning all that I can about blogging and networking quite a bit, (tune in Friday for my post on another workshop that I was a part of and find out how you can get the opportunity to also!), so naturally I jumped on the site and saw that there was a Twitter contest going on to win tickets to the Pop-Up. On a whim, I entered and a couple of weeks later received an email that I had won! Yay!

Once I arrived at the cute little venue where the conference was being held, Workshop Chicago, I had no idea what was in store for me, but was so excited to find out! The day consisted of some amazing and very helpful speakers. There was Alison of Sassy Moms in the City, #BossPeriod speaker herself, Farissa Knox of What R U Wearing, Cait of Pretty and Fun and the inspiring Danielle Moss, co-founder of The Everygirl, just to name a few. Needless to say, I learned A LOT, had so much fun and met some really awesome people, now friends! If you ever get a chance to attend one of these conferences, take it. The only regret that you’ll have is that you didn’t! See some of my photos from the day below and the outfit details of what I wore!

As always, thanks for reading!

xoxo, Hillary
