TxSC Mentoring Breakfast

Phew, I'm finally getting my feet back on the ground after coming home from Texas! I flew to Austin for the weekend to attend and speak at the Texas Style Council Conference. It was a lot of fun, but it was such a whirlwind. Despite the cold, rainy temperatures, I was able to get out quite a bit, meet a lot of amazing girls and spend time with old favorites! I wore this outfit for the TxSC Mentoring Breakfast. Elizabeth of Delightfully Tacky and I spoke on Blogging 101. It was a lot of fun to connect with bloggers just starting out!

I am honestly cracking up right now at the outfit I wore. All day, I kept getting, "You look like a modern day Snow White!" and I couldn't exactly envision her dress. So I just googled it and died. It is a total exact rip-off and it was not planned whatsoever! The skirt to her dress is yellow, the top is blue with bunched sleeves and she wears a red bow in her hair. Haha, that is too funny.

I'll be posting on the TxSC all week, but I just wanted to say right now that I admire Indiana so much for putting together such a fabulous event! Planning a huge weekend for so many attendees would have me pulling my hair out. I was super impressed and would definitely head back again next year for all of the fun. Hopefully then... it would be warm? I couldn't believe Michigan was warmer than Austin. So nuts! Also - a huge thank you to ModCloth for sponsoring my trip!

Outfit details:
ModCloth On Your Way skirt
Thrifted belt
Loxley Mary Jane wedges c/o Ruche

Haha! I noticed that you looked like Snow White! So cute, though. <3

I'm glad you had fun in Austin. One of my goals this year is to attend a blogger event. I've wanted to for years, and now that I'm a legal adult hopefully I can make it happen!

I can't believe I missed the mentoring breakfast!

I was a little unsure of a lot of bloggers I read, because there was a sea of pretty brunettes. I was so afraid of mistaking someone!

eleanor said...

Haha, awh - you make an adorable snow white! You look so pretty in blue and that skirt is amazing. Can't wait to hear more about the conference!

Andrea Clare said...

you look so happy :)


ShyScout said...

Haha, you definitely look like a modern day snow white. I love this outfit though, very pretty :]

Miss Tallulah Porkchop said...

The hair is amazing.

Midwest Mayhem said...

Haha, Snow White was the first thing that came to my mind when I looked at these pictures!

Tori said...

Super fab outfit!!!! I adore that color blue on you!!


Kimberly said...

Awww, you are the prettiest Snow White I've ever seen! That color blue is so beautiful on you - sounds like it was an amazing event! :)


Mere and the Mister said...

You do look like snow white!! Very pretty post. Can not wait to hear about TxSC...wish I could have gone!

Angela Bennett said...

Lovely color combo! You look great. Those shoes are too cute!

Jessica said...

I love that you inadvertently dressed like Snow White! I guess Disney does a good job of just planting these thing into our subconscious. You look great though! The colors look beautiful together!

Kenzie and Maddy said...

This is so lovely! Those colors look beautiful on you!

Jen said...

Love the modern day Snow White! Too cute! I'm so glad you had a fun time :)

Kate S said...

My first thought was "that's such a cute outfit!" and not "she looks like snow white." I didn't even put two and two together until you mentioned that!


Sofia H. said...

It was so lovely to meet you this weekend, Tieka! You looked fab in this outfit; I didn't even realize how Snow White it was until just now.

Marie @ Lemondrop Vintage said...

Bahaha! You are totally Snow White 2012... But it looks really cute!

Laura said...

Hahaha, I love that it unintentionally looked like Snow White! You look gorgeous. :)


benjamin + trang said...


This outfit looks so great in person and in the pictures! I'm so glad I got to meet you this past weekend at TxSC... you were one of the sweetest bloggers I met! Thanks for all the great tips and advice during your blogging 101 session. It was such a huge help for us bloggers starting out :) I'll definitely be keeping in touch


Anie said...

You look beautiful! I would never take "you look like Snow White" as anything but a compliment :)

Much Love


Kyla said...

You are every bit a fair princess :) One of the many magazines I get has had a section in the front of an outfit inspired by a costume - this would be perfect!

Kate said...

You are the cutest, seriously. If I wore this, I'd look (excuse my French) absolutely batshit. But you make what you have now named Snow White chic look swell. Love it, love it, love it!

Jillian said...

you look so cute and dainty :)

I guess I am not the only one who immediately thought of Snow White! :) This outfit looks stunning on you! I love how well the blue pairs with the yellow, and the shoes are just gorgeous! ModCloth never fails to impress! Hope you had a wonderful time at the Texas Style Council Conference! =) It sounds like an opportunity you'll always remember! I'm now following you, very excited to read more about your adventures! =D

Your lipstick looks totally kissable! Mwah x

Jamie Rose said...

Aw I love this! Now that I think about it, it kind of does look like Snow White. I always love blue, yellow, and red together so maybe I'll have to try an outfit like this sometime soon!

You look gorgeous! Beautiful color combination.


Worthington said...

I love your look, it is so fun and carefree!

Would love to hear some bullet points on what you said for Blogging 101. Even though I have blogged for over ten years, my readership has been down and maybe you'd provide some great insight!
