Next week I’m taking off for New Orleans and Mom Blog conference Mom 2.0. Per my norm with any blogging event, I’ve got the whole “what will I wear?!” thing going on. I don’t panic so much as get a bunch of happy anticipation over the whole thing. I actually really love to have the excuse to figure out some fun work-related outfits and to maybe *cough,cough* shop for something new.
But also around the time that the conference nears, I see a lot of people truly getting worked up about what to wear. Going to a blogging conference can be stressful for a lot of reasons, especially when you’re mixed in with a bunch of very fashionable and forward-thinking Moms.
I stopped truly feeling nervous ages ago and started going with what I’m comfortable with and embracing my own sense of style. The best advice one can receive – be yourself. I’m not saying you should wear a pair of sweat pants if that’s what you like to do when you’re on the couch, but there’s also no reason to bust yourself in a pair of four inch heels when you never wear high heels.
And when all else fails, I go with something classic and simple.
Black Pants are my go-to when I just can’t figure anything out or want to just be 100% smart-looking. I have these Marisa Pants from Ann Taylor Loft.
They’re $69.50 but if you use this week’s 30% off Friends and Family discount, well, you’ll get more money off. Use coupon code FRIENDSAF to receive your 30% off by end of day April 10th.
The Pencil Skirt is a elegant and slimming. This Presentation Skirt in Linen from J. Crew is $98.00 and would work with a number of tops. It must be the week for coupon codes because J. Crew has one out too – use coupon code SUNNY to receive 20% off your order of $150 or more on JCrew.com.
And wouldn’t this Skylark Blouse from Anthropologie ($88) look perfect with the J. Crew skirt?
