Last Day of the Conference: Thank You & Farewell!




The last day of the conference was a brief and bittersweet morning spent at the good old HQ. Rich took goofy photo booth-style shots of everyone, we had a clothing swap (you'll see the treasures I scored soon), and we enjoyed one last brunch together. Everyone shared their favorite part of the conference, and I must admit I got a little misty-eyed. I want to extend endless THANK YOUs to Suz, Rich and Jessica of Weardrobe and to all the other bloggers for being so wonderful. At the close of the weekend, I felt a lot of different things. I felt so lucky to have been a part of it. I felt like I really belonged to a community. I felt sad that it was over but excited for the possibility of a reunion. Most of all, I felt completely inspired.

This is what I wore the last day of the conference. I neglected to have someone take my outfit photo, so (being the complete dork that I am) I re-created it! Hence, the different hairstyle.

As it turns out, having huge buttons down your spine is not the most comfortable for a plane ride. Oh well, I adore this blouse. Swap the jeans for a pencil skirt, and I could have been one of the flight attendants!

We are some attractive bloggers, if I do say so myself. Although, I don't know how to explain my facial expression in the first photo. Oh well.

Those buttons may have been uncomfortable on the plane, but they make that top!

I love how you recreated your outfit just for the post-- I prolly would've done the same thing!

and I just finished looking through all of your entries; I love how you show how there's fashion in the Midwest too! also, the fact that you thrift like no one's business is also an inspiration. Keep up the good work! :)
