I still can’t believe that I got to attend the Silobration not once, but twice. When I went last year with my girl Isabelle, I thought of it as a “once in a lifetime, dream trip”.
But shortly after purchasing tickets to attend the Bloom Bash Workshop in Dallas, the organizers announced that they were adding a “field trip” onto the workshop and that we would wrap up by attending the Silobration!
If there could ever be a downside to this day for me, its that I was not feeling very well. When I got home, I learned that I had walking Pneumonia which explains why I was feeling so poorly! But as I have mentioned before, when I am at Magnolia, I feel like I am being called home to the Mothership. So in this moment, even though I was sick, I was as happy as a freakin clam! A hot clam mind you, the weather was quite warm that day, I would guess around 35 degrees C. I was seriously grateful for my sunhat and dress which were directly inspired (ahem copied ) from Cassie at Hi Sugarplum. She did a post about this white sundress and I knew I had to have it. As Cassie recommended, I accessorized with some statement earrings, these cute pink and mint ones from Target.
As an added bonus to being at my equivalent of Disneyland, I also got to hang out with these lovely ladies:
Ashley and Michaela are the creative geniuses behind the Bloom Workshop. Their talent and kindness seriously blows me away. Ashley is a photographer and helped me up my photography game so much! Michaela is an interior designer, so of course, I learned so much from her as well.
Because I have so many photos to show, I am going to keep the narration to a minimum…which is not easy for a chatty cathy like me! But here goes! First I am sharing photos of the grounds of the Silos:
And now onto the pictures I took inside the store! When you first walk into Magnolia, the wall to your left is apparently called Joanna’s wall and she designs it every season-this is what another customer told me as we were admiring it together. It was really hard to snap a good picture because there were so many people coming in and out and obstructing my shot…#rude #JK!
Yarn was a prominent material used in the displays throughout the store. That’s one of the things I love most about Joanna’s style is that she turns functional everyday objects into decorative elements.
She does this with books quite a bit as well.
If you are a Fixer Upper fan like me, a trip to Waco will not disappoint! There is so much to do there, you could easily spend a few days poking around. I noticed, even from last year, that the area surrounding the Silos is really gentrifying and there are lots of cute shops and cafes!
I hope you enjoyed the eye candy! Did you have any favorite items? I can’t wait to see the Hearth and Hand for Target line this weekend, I am so excited that Joanna’s style is going to be so accessible!
Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
