One of my very favorite things about the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration is that the planners incorporate families and kids into the schedule. There is an opening mixer and one full day of conference sessions for attendees-only - and then the rest of the meals and special events are produced for the enjoyment of the whole family.
For the day of the conference, I wanted an outfit that was professional and classic, while still being comfortable.
I settled on a black-and-white color scheme, which ended up being just right for pictures.
Black Cardigan Sweater by DownEast Basics - DownEast Basics is one of my go-to brands for clothing. They offer fresh, trendy pieces that outlast the season. I've had this particular black cardigan for almost 4 years and it has retained it's shape marvelously. I love the longer length and 3/4 length sleeves.
Black & White Polka-Dot layering piece by SkinnyShirt - SkinnyShirt's tag line goes like this: "Get the look of a button-front collared shirt without the bunchiness and bulk." Essentially, skinny shirts are sleeveless and lightweight layering pieces that pair wonderfully with sweaters and jackets. They instantly move any outfit up a notch in professionalism! Perfect for warmer weather!
White Mini Skirt Cayenne by DDatelier - A well-fitting pencil skirt is one of the best items in any woman's closet. Pencil skirts are versatile, professional, and universally flattering. DDatelier's skirt in white is an especially good pick for summer. If you're unfamiliar with the brand, DDatelier "designs and cuts their clothes specifically for slim women with D+ cups." I definitely plan to keep my eye on this brand as they release new pieces each season.
Strappy Heels by Unlisted, Kenneth Cole. I've had these black summer heels in my closet for YEARS. Still a great pick for coordinating with conference attire and cocktail dresses.
Toes by Kathryn of BamBamBeauty - My sister Kathryn is a licensed cosmetologist and make-up artist. Whenever I need a haircut or a pedicure or a cosmetics recommendation, I call her up.
Stay tuned for another post about what I wore to the Disney Social Media Moms Mother's Day Breakfast.
