Style Week OC

I recently attended Style Week OC hosted by SIMPLY and Fashion Island! I have aways wanted to attend because of all the glamorous speakers that are always on the panels and this year I got the chance to go!

When I arrived to the event, the space was filled with the cutest backdrops and photo ops. Pressed Juicery was giving away green drinks and Foster Grant was there showing off their latest line with Kat Graham!

The lineup for the day was absolutely stellar:

The highlight of my day was listening to the keynote speaker, Kat Graham. Not only is she an amazing actress (love her in Vampire Diaries!!), but she is also a fashionista at heart. Sarah Boyd interviewed Kat about everything from how she stays organized to what fashion means to her. One thing that really stuck out to me and that I really appreciated is that Kat talked about how fashion isn’t always buying the most expensive brand names, but its being creative and having a blended closet. I really admire that! I don’t necessarily thrift shop, but it definitely inspired me to take more risks in my style!

Throughout the day I was in awe of all of my favorite fashionistas. I am so excited and appreciative that events like Style Week OC exist! They are a way for us to connect with our favorite fashion forward celebs. I cannot wait to see what they plan for next year!
