yes, another BlogHER post. get over it.

Yup, I’m writing about BlogHer again.

Two week from today, I will be in the thick of it.

I’ve read a bunch of posts about fashion and what to expect what not to do and what people are doing to prepare and what to just get over.

I was afraid.  I was.

I am still anxious about leaving my boys, but now I know I will have fun.  I will.

So my planning has taken the shape of excitement.  I made a google doc of my preliminary schedule and I quit RSVP-ing for things since I know that what I have on my schedule is already too much for this momma (I may tire quickly, what?).

I have gone shoe shopping with my lovely mother.

And now?  I have started to figure out what to pack.

So here it is…my BlogHer Fashion (or lack there of) rundown….yes the pictures are bad, I was trying to do it quickly and quietly during nap….

Wednesday for the plane

I leave at 5:45 pm est on Wednesday and don’t arrive until 9:22pm pac, so I need comfort:
baggy capris and a comfy halter top with comfy flip flops

Thursday: Pathfinders Day

I love skirts.  As in I LIVE in them in the summer.  If I am not inside in the AC with yoga pants on?  I am wearing a skirt.

Skirt:  GAP

Shoes: Target

Saturday

Last day of the conference. Still want to be cute, but comfy after all the madness of the past two days.

Skirt: Gap Outlet
Tank: Old Navy
shoes: Target

Saturday night parties

Last night to party!  But it’s more casual and chill than the other nights seeing as the Aiming Low and CheeseburgHER parties are that night, so I went with a bit more comfort than snazzy by choosing a jersey-type dress that can be paired with leggings if need be.

Dress: GAP Outlet
Shoes:  Shoe Carnival
Bracelet: NY and Co
Earrings:  Allora Handmade

Sunday plane ride home

Again, I need to be comfy on the plane, so anything that feels like jammies is a win.

Tank tops:  GAP Outlet
Skirt:  Old Navy
Shoes: Target

you didn't think I would fly across the country without these, did you?

and yes, I packed the Assets that I finally broke down and bought because that off-white dress up there?  Needed a wee bit o help. Got ’em at Target.

I will also be carrying a cute clutch, handbag, and business card wallet by Peggy Ann Design.
I also have clutches by this awesome lady that will be coming along with me.
And of course my business cards made and sponsored by GCS Design.

I will not be taking my DSLR camera to BlogHer.  I decided it was just too much to carry and pack, but I do have my point and shoot coming along.

And my Droid2.

And my laptop.

So BlogHer goers…what are YOU bringing along?
