Concrete Catwalk // Conference Color-blocking

January 23, 2012
Today’s outfit photos by Modern Eve

What a whirlwind weekend I’ve had!  Attending Altitude Design Summit and having the honor of speaking on a panel there was quite an amazing way to kick off 2012, and I returned feeling both exhausted and exhilarated and ready to make this little blog the best it can be!  Get excited for a new look, easier navigation and some fun new features coming in the very near future.  I’m also hoping to get my notes together in a nice and neat little document that you’ll be able to download if you weren’t able to make it for the conference this year… sound good?

The outfit photos above were taken on Thursday right before our Fashion Blogging 101 panel, and it was so fun to share my thoughts alongside some other blog-sweetie-pies (Gala! Jessica! Summer!), but I have to say that my favorite part of being a speaker was getting to chat with the attendees afterwards and making some new dear friends.

Speaking of friends, I can whole-heartedly say that all of the new (and old!) blog buddies I got to meet and see was easily my favorite part of the whole trip, and I’ve got a LOT of catching up to do on the new-to-me sites I discovered. Give a little wave if we met this past weekend, because I’d LOVE to connect online and keep in touch!!!

I do believe it’s time to pour myself another cup of jo and get back to work, but I hope you’re having a good Monday morning and I’ll see you back here tomorrow!

    Hey Jessie! It was SO great to meet you at ALT. I was the one that practically stalked you at every event to tell you what a sweetie you were:) I’d love to connect with you and am looking forward to checking out more of your blog!

    Gorgeous, quirky look Jessie – I’ve seen socks with heels before but you’ve taken it up a notch with patterned tights… lovely. And the green is BEAUTIFUL on you!

    Love the color blocking here… funny because it’s almost a more dressed up color palette than I’m wearing in my Monday post. Love the socks/booties!
