TGIF. Even though I am currently not at work, I still love Fridays because that means the weekend is just around the corner. And I’m especially excited for this weekend as BlogPodium is here! THE blog conference for Canadian design and lifestyle bloggers and it’s happening here in Toronto on Saturday. Keynote speaker – Sarah Richardson. Um yeah, can’t wait!
This always leads to the ‘what the heck am I going to wear?’ dilemma. Bloggers tend to be a stylish bunch, they’ve generally got a great eye and pull out all the stops when it comes to these sort of events. But it’s a fine line between looking stylish in your heels and limping home. Been there, done THAT.
So this year, I decided to be stylish and comfortable.
1/My go to lately has been easy breezy dressing and there is nothing easier than throwing on a great dress. Easily goes from conference to night out and there is no uncomfortable waistline digging into you. I also love the colour of this shirt dress. Plum is the new black. Trust me.
2/Statement jewelry is always my go to. I love throwing on a pair of jeans, a white tee and a huge corker of a necklace. Bloggers luuuurve their bling. We’ll be lucky to hear the speakers over the jingle jangling of the arm parties. For real.
3/Comfortable shoes or boots. This is a must. I have limped home from too many nights out, heels in hand to do this again. Not to mention, this year, the choice of flats was out of my hands.
4/The necessary tech. For me, that’s my iPad and iPhone. I take notes on the iPad and use the phone to Tweet, Instagram and Facebook. It’s not considered rude at these events, they always provide you with a hashtag to do so! Oh and don’t forget to bring your charger or extra battery. You’ll need it.
5/No teeny tiny clutch for this gal. I need space for my tech, business cards and other essentials.
If you’re a blogger and attending BlogPodium, be sure to come by and say hi. If you’re not attending, I’ll post a wrap up post next week. Happy Friday!
