Comfort and Confidence: My Go Blog Social Style

Last Saturday, I had the honor of presenting at Go Blog Social, a Kansas City-based conference that made a stop in St. Louis on its 2016 Midwest tour. I was tasked with talking about the art of brand and blogger relationships. In over 8 years of discussing affordable style with you and sharing the brands I enjoy using, I’ve learned some best practices for doing so. My fellow conference attendees were quite receptive, and the panel went really well. Follow the GBSxSTL hashtag for highlights.

The conference was an all-day affair, so my outfit of the day had a couple major demands on it. I wanted to look like a style blogger presenting, but I also wanted to be comfortable enough to sit for long periods and navigate a large space for an entire day. The answer for me? Jeans and Tee! Of course, by jeans and tee, I mean my favorite striped boatneck t-shirt and my right-on-trend denim culottes.

What I’m Wearing:

Tee: J.Crew (on sale)

Denim Culottes: Express

Sandals: J.Crew (old, similar)

Head wrap: The Wrap Life

Earrings: Kendra Scott

Rings: Kendra Scott, Kendra Scott (on sale)

Watch: Movado (in silver)

Lip: Mac “Fashion Darling” Versicolour stain, Mac “Kiss Me Quick” lip pencil

No look is complete without a splash of bold color or a hip mix of prints. I threw on one of my favorite African print head wraps, which always perfectly complements stripes. Remember when I wore it with my striped swimsuit? With a head wrap on, I also didn’t have to worry about my ever-changing fro.

I wore my mid-heel sandals, which are a great alternative to flats when I need comfortable shoes and some height. I could walk in these all day. I’ve worn them here, here, and here.
