School Boy Blazer + Silk Shirt + Chiffon Maxi Skirt

I attended the Lucky Fabb Conference in Santa Monica yesterday. Had such an amazing time. The panel was great and definitely a wealth of information. I have to say, though, Brandon Holley (EIC of Lucky mag) made the packed room feel relaxed and not too uptight.

Generally, when you think of an Editor-in-Chief of a major magazine, Anna Wintour comes to mind. I have never met her, but she seems a bit serious, no? Well, Brandon Holley had jokes for days. She had me literally “laughing out loud” each time she stepped on that stage.

Another favorite was John Jannuzzi, a contributing digital editor at Lucky. His blogger friendly jokes were spot on.

I’m happy I went. I think more of these conferences should be laid-back, social and interactive. Like..I’d even suggest that they ask us to take 5-10 minutes to introduce ourselves to other bloggers, as opposed to hanging out with or speaking to people you are already familiar with. Just a thought.

In any case, this was what I wore. We were right on the beach, so it was cold and windy.

Navy School Boy blazer (J.Crew) you can get 15% off on this site. Found similar styles here or there. Green silk shirt (J.Crew). Came across one at Old Navy – can be purchased here. Recommended the skirt on our pinterest page last month. It’s available here.

I put together some inexpensive options for nude pumps. Style 1 | Style 2 | Style 3 | Style 4

Enjoy & have a fantastic day! xx

Haaaaaahaaaaaa you are making me laugh out loud too....... Yep Anna W springs to mind. I have to agree with you that there is nothing like a good old ice breaker to relax people and make meetings/confrences less formal. I must say you look soooooooo cute in that skirt. I am waiting on a similar yellow skirt from Romwe to be delivered. Keep rocking it girlfriend :))
