Win a LOFT bracelet and join in Monday Mingle
Looking good when surrounded by your peers matters. Last week was a wild one when it came to covering and attending events. A highlight of the week was getting to meet Maggie Gyllenhaal with Audrey and Colleen as part of the Got Milk program. I wore a great Chanel knock-off jacket by Coach, a silky Club Monaco top and skinny jeans. You can read the interview with Maggie here.
Also on tap, shooting fashion segments for a special project with Downy. These will be airing soon--so stay tuned. I wore a favorite Ella Moss top with cream jeans from a Brazilian brand called BoBo. We promise to share the videos very soon.
To cap the busy week off, I spent two days at the She Streams conference here in NYC. Maria Bailey put together an amazing group of Key Note speakers and I was fortunate to be on a panel about starting your own show (which I hope to be doing more of very soon!). In the picture above (DAY 1), I wore a DVF top and a LOFT necklace. On DAY 2, I wore a Tory Burch sheath dress, a Stella & Dot necklace and Sofft heels.
Here are some quick conference fashion DOs:
- Do wear comfortable heels, you don't want aching feet to keep you from enjoying an event.
- Color can express personality and help you stand out in a crowd. Black suits are great, but add an eye-catching scarf or necklace.
- Don't double bag it. I saw too many moms toting what looked like the contents of a minivan. Check the bags you don't need and do carry a stylish tote (more on that!)
And the style of the moms at the She Streams conference was shining through. I loved seeing all these fashionable bags. We've got Molly from GoMom.com with her ruffly Jessica Simpson, Candice from MomMostTraveled.com with her colorful Namaste Bag and Key Note Speaker and President of Kidzania Cammie Dunaway with her jazzy Missoni for Target bag.
With all this eventing I've had a lot of fun showing off my fashion flair. I admit to being a little excited to put the high heels away for a few days. But after a summer of flip-flops and sundresses I welcomed this week of cool fashion.
Each week I team up with the lovelies from BonBonRoseGirls and Glamamom for a fashion linky where we talk about what we'??re wearing and what we'??d love to add to our closets.
