What to Wear: The Boutique Summit 2017

Can you believe that we’re less than a month away from the first-ever Boutique Hub Summit!? We’re pretty shocked ourselves, but so ready to get this show on the road! If you’re anything like us, you’re already making lists of what you’ll need to bring, including what to wear!

Oh, girl, trust us, we don’t think you’re being vain by worrying about that little detail, after all, we represent the boutique fashion industry! At the same time, we’re all too familiar with having seven days worth of dry shampoo in our hair and not making it out of our sweatpants for days on end. The most important thing is, there isn’t any pressure. If you want to dress to the nine’s, go for it. If you’d rather just throw on some jeans and a comfy shirt, nobody is going to judge!

You’ll want to pack comfortable outfits since you’ll be sitting most of the day, but don’t let that stop you from letting your personal style shine!When it comes down to it, you are the best representation of your boutique and/or brand, and we want your Summit style to reflect that!

Just a little heads up for you, we have a special Snapchat filter set up for you, a photo booth, AND an opportunity for you to get a professional headshot taken by our on-site photographer!

On Tuesday afternoon, you’ll have the option to join a group of boutique owners to head to Harry Hines Blvd. for some wholesale shopping, or catch some time at the spa, along with some must-schedule time at our Partner Marketplace at the DoubleTree behind DMC.

Dressing up is not required, but we wanted to give you all a chance to pull out those outfits that you don’t get a chance to wear all that often! Personally, for the banquet, I’m packing a navy blue, high-low dress, and will probably pair it with some wedges, and of course, turquoise!

We checked the weather report and Dallas weather is expected to be about 90 degrees in the day. So, although we’ll be in the climate controlled buildings of Dallas Market Center and the DoubleTree, you’ll want to take those temperatures into consideration when packing.

We can’t wait to see you all in Dallas!
