My First BlogHer! Pt. 2

Here are my further adventures at BlogHer!

This is what I wore on Saturday.  I knew I was going to out for the entire day (I didn’t get home until after 12am!) so I wanted to be comfortable yet chic.  I’m wearing a Talbots Woman pencil skirt in my favorite color (red), Old Navy denim shirt and sliver jewelry.  I wore flat thong sandals and I’m so glad I did!   If you plan to attend next year, leave the heels at home!

Shout out to my nephew who woke up at 7:00am to take my picture!

After a long day of conferencing, it was time to let our hair hang down and have a good time!  BlogHer had its first fashion show featuring many well-known bloggers gorgeously dressed.   Everyone looked amazing and strutted their stuff down the runway.  The show was inclusive featuring women of different sizes, races and abilities.

I also got to take a picture with a very well known (well at least to your kids!) celebrity! He was very warm and fuzzy!

Chillin with the Lorax! LOL

I had to take a picture of Danyelle . Her outfit was so colorful and fun. Plus she was so sweet when I asked to take her picture.

For me the highlight of the day was meeting fabulous women from various parts of the country.  I was fortunate to have met Michelle , Karla , Erica and Lea (a fellow SUNY Binghamton alumna).  Not only were these ladies beautiful but they were funny as hell! They kept me laughing all night long, making my conference experience even better!

Although I was exhausted when I made it back to my sister’s house, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.  Blogher2013 is going to be in Chicago next July, will I see you there?

Have a wonderful evening!

    LOVE your style. I’m new to your blog and love it….lots. I seem to check it all day every day so I was wondering…..is there a way that I can receive your blog whenever you write one through my e-mail?

    • August 7, 2012 / 7:47 pm

    I tried on that skirt and walked around with it for about 30 minutes before decided the price was still too high for me, even with the mark down (it was also a teensy bit big in the waist). It looks great on you and I love it with the Chambray shirt. Looks like you had an amazing time at blogher!

      Awww Im sorry you didnt get it. You know its now further reduced? Hint, hint!

    What an awesome event. I may have to check out the Chicago event.

    I really like that skirt and top pairing; you look fabulous.
