Talk about the best blogger experience, ever! I had the time of my life at Saint Louis Fashion Week. This was my first time traveling to St. Louis for their fashion week and I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of good food I experienced, my hotel room was perfect, and I was introduced to a group of amazing women who enjoy picture taking and shopping just as much as myself. Our schedule was jammed packed with 18 awesome events to attend in a 4 day span!
I stayed at Saint Louis Union Station for my entire stay. Let's just say, my room was heavenly. The bed itself was so comfortable, not to mention the spacious bathroom + huge tub. My room was filled with goodies like chips, magazines, a t-shirt, and a ton of jewelry. My arm parties just got a little more gorgeous + full. Ha. Once I was settled into my room, I met with all of the other bloggers and we went to the Tiny Bar for cocktails, then the Emerging Designer Competition Runway Show, and finished up the evening with dinner with Socially Jen at 360 St.Louis. The first night was magic because my name was front row on the seat and I was gifted a bracelet that said #inspire. Everything was absolutely perfect. Dreams do come true.

The next morning I woke bright and early for snacks then shopping with The Vault. I purchased a special book that I will introduce later, let's just say investments are always worth it. While on vacation I decided to splurge. Every girl deserves an overpriced treat every once in a while. After shopping at The Vault I enjoyed a heavenly spread of salad, bread, pizza, and pasta from Katie's Pizza & Pasta Osteria. The funniest part of that meal was everyone stopping to take pictures before we ate like it was the norm. Gotta love being with like-minded blogger gals! We visited Element Restaurant & Lounge for dinner with Collections by Joya. The night was so beautiful. I loved eating family style, my favorite dishes were the steak and salmon. Both cooked to perfection!
Friday morning we had Dim Sum Brunch with Julia Li at Lu Lu Seafood after shopping with Naturalizer. I will be styling my new boots in post next week. Taking 2 weeks off, got me off of schedule. Stay tuned to see how I style my knee high riding boots! Below you will see more images from my Friday spent in Saint Louis.
Saturday I slept in before creeping out of bed for brunch. I can't remember where we ate, but I know that I ate sausage and apple crepes. Talk about delicious! My favorite part of Saturday was spending time at Ballpark Village. We were given a tour of the massive venue after our beer dinner. I ordered steak, asparagus, and mashed potatoes which just happens to be one of my favorite meals. I gained at least 5 pounds while visiting Saint Louis. My favorite denim shirt would not button completely. LOL so maybe I could have sipped a little less alcohol and tried more salads, but vacation isn't about playing it safe.
That's all folks. Saint Louis was great. I was surrounded by beautiful people, amazing food, and an once in a lifetime experience. Thank you for creating such an unforgettable experience Explore St. Louis and Midwest Influencer Network.
