Day 7: that dreaded day

{ What I Wore: J.Crew bouse, belt & skirt // Nine West pumps // Spike the Punch necklace }
{ Get the look }
silk blouse {$74.50} + wool pencil skirt {$69.50} + belt {deal $34.50 // steal $12.99}  + statement necklace {$28.00} + black pumps {$30.00}
Oh no... I have an important function, and NOTHING to wear.
Ok, I'm being a little overdramatic I have stuff to wear, but when I put it on, it doesn't look anything like I imagined it would in my head.
I got invited to my first Blogger function here in Nashville, and am seriously stressing about what to wear. Of course, this would fall during my Fall 30X30, and NONE of my 30 items are hitting the spot for me. 
I want to wear something me, but also FAB-ulous... gotta bring it to my first blogger function, you know!
In my head - this look was more monochromatic, and less matronly. 
HELP!
Have you been to a blogger function?
What did you wear? 
Any suggestions? You girls are so wonderfully stylish, help a sister out!

  1. I say you wear the pleather skirt, and a cute sweater, maybe with a button up layered underneath.  And of course so fabulous heels.  I've been to a couple blogger events, and this is the time to wear something edgy and fashion forward.  Everyone there will get it and love it :)

  3. I like this look.  I am a huge fan of color blocking.  Though, I understand your dilemma about wanting to do something special for this event.  Please share what you do!  Have a great time!

  4. You're being too hard on yourself! This doesn't look matronly at all. I really like the colors together, and your accessories keep it fun and young. I have never been to a blogger meet-up but I know I would be stressing about what to wear :D I am so jealous though, you're going to have so much fun!!

  6. I think your outfit looks great too, especially with the accessories you picked out. Maybe if you want it to be a bit more playful, you could put your hair into loose waves/curls instead of the bun. However, either way I think you still look fab.

  10. I love this purple on purple- I think it looks great! I was nervous with my first blogger meet-up, and awkward, so it didn't go super well. However, I know you will do just fine!

  11. I agree...the pleather pleated skirt is very "now". I might go with that and your leopard print shirt with a solid colour jacket or sweater and then depending how it turns out maybe boots just to be different, or if you want to keep it simple,  those gold capped heels. 

    Have fun!BisousSuzannehttp://bisous.typepad.com/bisous/

  12. Your adorable. I love this look!! :) BUT from looking at your clothes really quick what about the Animal print top with your pleather skirt? Maybe with those cap shoes? Idk what they look like unfolded but that could be an option!? Have fun!!! I forget what I wore to mine. Most girls though were pretty casual. :) BUT that's also Boston for you!

  18. I'd totally mix the edgy pleather skirt with the Zara tweed jacket, maybe with the leopard top and killer heels??? Well balanced but definitely fashion forward!  Have a blast :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I really like what you've got on (maybe darker jewelry to fancy it up a little?) but I feel like that leather skirt needs to happen. Maybe with the blouse/heels you're wearing and a few thousand pounds of jewelry? But I'd freak out and need more layers, so I'd also try plaid shirt + polka dot sweater/maroon sweater + purple pencil, or black jacket + pink sweater + red skirt, orrr maybe plaid shirt + pink sweater + leather skirt and heels? I guess it depends on how fancy this shindig is. Now I want to come play in your closet.

  26. Maybe you just need to add the trusty leopard belt or shoes to this outfit?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I like the contrast of the purples, but I don't think this is THE outfit for the event.

    What about the leather skirt, polka dot sweater, and silk or leopard blouse? Or switch out the skirt for the red skinnies?
    Or your Zara tweed jacket, chambray shirt, and leather skirt? I have NO idea if any of these will actually look good together, but things to play with. Good luck!!
