Channeling vacation in Tulum, Mexico! Last week I attended a conference in Dallas, Texas. The conference was hosted by rewardStyle which is a media and affiliate marketing company geared towards fashion, beauty and lifestyle bloggers. The conference is known throughout social media as #rsTheCon if you would like to search the hashtag for pictures.

I was so excited to receive an invitation to the conference. There are only about two hundred spots available and they are tough spots to come by! So, I definitely felt honored to be included. As with any business conference, there were classes and networking opportunities with both brands and bloggers. It was really fun to meet some bloggers I know through social media, but have never had the chance to meet in person. While education at a conference is must-have for your business, making new friends who can become your support group is a goldmine. Love it!

So you might be asking yourself, why is she channeling Tulum at a work conference in Dallas? Well, on day one of the conference all we did was check-in, meet-and-greet with other attendees, and celebrate being there at a pool party! The theme of the pool party was “Escape to Tulum” and it was sponsored by Sole Society, so it was super fun! Hence my outfit, channeling a vacation in Tulum 😉

Surprisingly, this is not what I planned to wear to this event. The original dress I planned to wear didn’t work out for the party, so I decided to wear this outfit instead which I had originally planned to wear on day three of the conference. It worked out perfectly since it was fairly warm and humid at the pool party, and this skirt breathes! Love!

Circling back to the original dress; when I tried it on at home I thought the bra I packed would be OK, but it totally showed through! Eeeek! I can’t go around like that!! So, the dress will have to come home with me and get worn another time. But, that wasn’t my only packing snafu. I forgot to pack my eye-shadow brush, and my black wedges. Ugh! I am usually really good about following my packing list, but somehow I screwed up this time. Has this ever happened to you?

Thank you so much for stopping by, and stay tuned for more coverage of my escapades at conference!

New York Fashion Week outfit day five

On the fifth day of fashion week, the temperature rose from single digits, to a warm and cozy 20-something. (Insert sarcastic tone) It was freezing; let’s be frank. I kept myself bundled up in layers and felt perfectly comfortable in this outfit on the fifth day.

I absolutely adore this skirt by Diane Von Furstenberg. It is part of her spring 2015 collection, so I am looking forward to wearing it more often this spring, and into the summer season. 

This bracelet by Kendra Scott is a new favorite of mine. Since blue is my favorite color, and shades of blue are popular for the upcoming spring and summer seasons, I know this bracelet will be worn almost everyday; it already is being worn almost everyday! Kendra Scott also has other pastels for spring in her collection including pink and mint green. Love that!

I was a little disappointed in the color palette for the fall 2015 season. There was hardly any blue! Of course there was classic autumn navy on the runways, but not very much blue. So, I am definitely going to try and get my blue fill this spring and summer! What is your favorite color to wear? 

A New York Fashion Week look: Friday

Friday was my busiest day at New York Fashion Week. I attended five shows and was stopped a few times on the street by photographers. This was the first time photographers stopped me to take pictures and I was thoroughly baffled on how to act! I stopped and smiled, but completely forgot to ask them who they worked for! Only one photographer offered up her publication. I have to admit, the whole experience was flattering! The compliments I received were towards my Milly skirt and Rebecca Minkoff handbag. Due to this experience, I will be wearing both of these items well through spring, and possibly into summer too! How could I not?!

My shoes are from the fall 2009 Prada runway and I could not be more thankful for them! I brought them and wore them at fashion week because they have a lug sole which grips the ice and snow; keeping me safe from falls! In addition to the traction, they are extremely comfortable despite the pitch of the heel. This is a necessity since I have to stand in line before the shows and New York, in general, requires a lot of walking!

Friday was an amazing day since I was able to see Carmen Marc Valvo, Rebecca Minkoff, Lee Jean Youn, Academy of Art and Emerson. The designs on the runways were amazing and I was thrilled to have a sneak peek into the upcoming trends for the fall/winter 2014/2015 season! Just from Friday, I was already able to spot the importance of classic red and medium blue for the fall season. 

There are many more shows to see, so at the end of it all, I will have a complete trend report for you! Thank you so much for your support and stay tuned for more coverage from New York!
