Last week I attended Florida Huddle, a major tradeshow in the tourism and travel industry for work. We had over 50 meetings with international wholesalers and tour operators from all over the world. I love these shows because you finally get to meet and hang out with the people you’ve been emailing and calling for months. We were super busy, but it was a blast! The people in this industry are so genuine and I feel lucky to be apart of it.
During the week, we went to the Visit St. Pete/Clearwater Event at the Mahaffey Theater and Dali Museum. We were the first ones to see the new Dali & Disney Exhibit, and it was amazing!! They closed down the museum just for us- definitely a highlight of the busy work week. I highly recommend if you are ever in St. Petersburg to visit before the exhibit is gone June 12th. They even have a virtual reality exhibit where you put on these big glasses and feel like you are actually jumping into some of Dali’s paintings. I know.. so cool.
I was so excited for this event because I finally got to debut my dress from Shandy Style Boutique. Shandy is a brand new boutique on 4th Street and 43rd Ave. (Right across from the Chik Fil A for my local readers) My friend, Alexis and her family opened up this cute shop a couple of months ago and I am in love! They have some amazing brands you can’t find anywhere else including Free People and Whitney Port, to name a few.
This dress caught my eye immediately when I saw the embroidered detailing. It’s so beautiful! Perfect for my evening event for work with flats, but also great to pair with a pair of tall boots for daytime during the weekends. This dress screams Anthropologie look and quality, but better, and for half of the price.
So now you love Shandy Style Boutique but you’re not a St. Pete local? No prob! Shandy now ships throughout the US! For more information on Shandy Style, you can follow them on Facebook by clicking here and Instagram by clicking here.
