I can't believe Alt Summit is next week! I'm honored to be speaking on a panel with Beth, Janette, and Piper called "From Blog To Shop." I'm sure I'll have major butterflies the day of but right now all I can think about is what on earth I'm going to wear in Salt Lake City for four days! Here's one of the looks I'm contemplating...

Somehow it always feels like I have no clothes in my closet when these events roll around. Does anyone else feel immediate pressure to shop in preparation? #guilty ;)

Keep up with Design Darling

Guilty as charged. I shop in preparation for travel, conferences, you name it, despite the wardrobe I feel like I keep "prepped" for such occasions! Love your choices, love the shade of that jacket...and I'm buying those earrings. I need them as prep for a conference :)


Lauren said...

yup i definitely agree, i always use an event as an excuse to add something to my wardrobe, plus i think its really important to feel good about what you're wearing at one of these things, it helps your confidence!

Love this look. The blazer is fantastic. Can't wait to see what you decide on for the summit!

I always say "I don't have any clothes" and the truth is complete opposite!!

Good luck speaking!

I'm completely guilty, I just don't feel ready for an event unless I've bought a new outfit. I think it makes me feel more confident but totally all in my head. I'm in love with that blazer by the way! And now that its on sale I don't think I can help myself!

Travel is one of my favorite shopping excuses! ;)

i always use traveling or an event as an excuse to go shopping. i'm trying now to add more classic pieces that i can use for multiple things so i don't panic when i have to dress for something different. i love those wedges!

I'm right there with you! I feel like I need to shop for IFB Con next month but in reality I DO NOT - lol. Are you going to be at IFB Con?! If yes, can't wait to meet in person, if not, let's meet up while I'm in town! :)
