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

  15. 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!

  24. 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!

  27. 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!

  36. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  37. 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!

  38. Love your skirt! I have one exactly like yours, but it is from Forever 21.

  41. 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!

  49. 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!
