What I Wore: Camisole (Old Navy), Shrug (Target), Skirt (Brag Vintage; Similar Here), Shoes (Modcloth), Bracelet (Popbasic; Similar Here)
Well, we've made it to Iowa City, and I've been busy at workshops ever since. My head is fairly exploding with new information! What to wear to conferences and such is always such a conundrum. It's not quite work, but you want to look professional. You need to be put together but prepared to sit long hours, walk everywhere and carry whatever you need with you. Added to that this Rock Mountain girl has little idea about how to handle midwest humidity (true story: the first time I was in Chicago in high school, it took me fifteen minutes to figure out "what is this strange thing that seems so different?" because I am that unused to humidity!) Luckily, this pencil skirt never steers me wrong, and can be dressed up or down.
In fact, this outfit is one I wore a few times this summer, including down to the local teahouse where we took photos. The color story reminded me of a rose, but since the green is mint, it keeps things away from being too Christmas. Would you try this color combination?
