What I Wore: Splendor Trunk Show

A friend of mine and I joined forces on Saturday for a little Cupcake Tasting & Splendor Trunk Show.

Sarah owns "Sweet Treats by Sarah" and makes the most delicious cupcakes! So when she contacted me a couple months ago about getting together to do a combined Splendor Trunk Show & Cupcake Tasting party,  I pretty much didn't have to think twice about it. Because really, she had me at "cupcake."

But also because, I don't do things like this enough and I should. I love to meet and interact with "customers." I truly love talking with people and getting to know little bits of their life. And then to think that a piece I created went home with them into their own little world... Oh what can I say, it just makes me happy.

It was held in the cutest coffee shop in a town near by called New Braunfels. It's a really fun, historic, not to mention beautiful little town. There are lots of fun restaurants and shops through out  and it's got a river right in the middle that people from all around come to go tubing on.

The event was so much fun from start to finish. Setting up the table and display is a favorite part for me. I just wish I had enough time to take better pictures {I actually brought my "real" camera, but never pulled it out} And I wish I had got a shot of the whole room set up because Sarah did a great job on all of her yummy cupcakes too. If you happen to live in the area and need some gourmet cupcakes for a special event, be sure to scope her out!

This is what I wore for the day. I was going for comfort and you can't go wrong with a maxi and a tank. The scarf plays off the lighter coral color in the skirt. I sure love me a good scarf, don't you? As long as its super light weight for these warmer months that is. 

{side note: I have a major sway back. This picture is sure evidence if I ever saw it}

  1. I am totally drooling over your outfit! Every variety of orange is a favorite color of mine and that skirt is wonderful, especially in that outfit.

  2. You are so cute, girl! Love that skirt on you!

  3. I adore your haircut, super super cute. And I am crazy jealous that you can rock a tank top as is (e.g. not as an undershirt)! Super cute outfit and accessories, it looks breezy but intentional. And your jewelry is amazing.

  4. Super cute. I am working my way up to scarfing. I love them. But when I put one on I feel like "I AM WEARING a SCARF!!!" You know what I mean? :)

    Looks like the show went well! You really do look summer cute!

  5. Can I just say how ROCKIN your body looks in these photos? Would that be inappropriate? Ah well.
