what to wear: to a blog conference

pants (similar) & peplum: Forever 21 // shoes: Lulu*s // purse: gift J.Crew Factory // earrings: Francesca's Collections
 If you follow me on any form of social media this weekend, then you got a sneak peek at what I wore on Saturday at Texas Style Council. I can't remember if I knew about the conference first or bought the pants first, but I knew upon the realization of both that I would wear them to my very first blogger conference. Is there anything more style bloggery than colored, printed, ankle-length skinnies? 

These pants have actually been pretty central in my mental shopping list over the last several months. I knew I needed a pair of killer flats, which I bought after my first outfit post in the jeans. When I bought them, I also knew that I wanted to acquire a black peplum top to make the perfect outfit out of them, but I've had a hard time finding one that really fit. After window shopping, trying on, ordering, and returning a handful of peplum tops, I finally found one that I love! Throw on a cute clutch and a pair of bold earrings and I've got a dynamic blogger look.

I know you were all hoping this post would be an inspiration barf fest of everything I learned over the weekend. I promise it's coming! Our Internet went out this weekend and I'm typing this on my phone, so I'll be back (hopefully tomorrow!) with a full Texas Style Council recap.

What's your quintessential blogger outfit?


  1. Your hair is looking so good! I just went and got my hair cut this morning; on Friday I don't know what happened but all of the sudden I just had too.much.hair. Also, loving this top. Like, a lot.

  2. girlll I'm OBSESSED with your hair!! I love it a lot. Also- I'm jealous that you were able to find a peplum shit that fit you so well! I have one but I'm constantly pulling it- it's just a little too short for my liking.

  3. Love this outfit. Those pants are killer! I loved following along with your instagram feed this weekend. Looks like TXSC was a blast!

  4. oh i'm so jealous that you went to TXSC! it looked like a blast on instagram! cute outfit!

  5. You are rocking this outfit! I don't think anyone could ever pull off those pants like you do. I swear they were made for you. I stalked you on insta during that whole txsc thing and it looked like so much fun! I feel like I'd be totally awkward meeting people I stalk on the internets in real life. I'm pretty much just awkward meeting anyone in the first place. But youuu, that's like your job already, so I'm sure your're great at it :)

  9. hot freaking dang girl, you look so stinkin good.


  10. I love this outfit, but you already knew that. Also, I can't believe you typed this all on your phone! My quintessential blogger outfit usually involves a blazer and oxfords (http://prettyandpunk.tumblr.com/post/42279975304) or a green military jacket.

  11. Dang, Nicole! This is a great outfit! I love the polka dot pants, and that peplum top is SUPER cute!!!
