BlogHer ’12 is done and dusted.
It was huge, crazy, fun and inspirational. And I’ll be back next year in Chicago (shhh … haven’t told Mr Styling You that one yet).
I’ve got more posts coming for you about what I’ve learned from the two days but I thought you might like a little look-see at what I chose to wear.
It may have been a hot, stinky summer outside but inside the Hilton New York, it was a climate-controlled conference temperature ranging from comfortable to freezing.
Me, I like to err on the side of freezing when choosing a conference outfit (you can check out my previous conference outfit posts here and here), which is why I have a little bit of a uniform of sorts for these types of events.
It’s not unusual to find some NYDJs on my legs and a jacket over a tee or tank. And then I accessorise it up.
Which is what I did on the first day.
For me, this outfit was all about letting my new Sussan jacket do the talking. I’m not generally a floral kind of girl but this piece just makes me smile. Take off the jacket and I’m just in a basic white tank and jeans.
On the second day I changed it up a bit, ditching my conference jeans uniform for something fun and new from one of my favourite labels, Feathers*.
I’m a big fan of stripes and usually like my skirts maxi length but this midi style was fun to play around with. The fabric of the skirt is a thick jersey with awesome sucker-in-er powers. We like that.
So the skirt may have been classic in style and stripe but when you pop it with a lime green and some florals, it takes you smack bang into Spring 2012.
Oh, and please excuse my cankles … flying is not friendly to my feet and legs
We’ve got the rest of the week in New York, with lots of things to see and do … and just a little bit of shopping to be had, so my outfits will be not so structured. I’ll be embracing the casual chic that I’ve already seen locals wearing on the streets.
My version of New York casual chic , however, will come with a good dose of sweat on the side.
Are you freezing where you are right now? Does it seem crazy to think of wearing summer clothes?
