Buns, Booties and Animal Prints…Oh My

You may remember me mentioning that a couple weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending the Fashion Forward Conference put on by Nicole Feliciano of Momtrends, Audrey McClelland of Mom Generations and Vera Sweeney of Lady and the Blog. I had a wonderful time listening to some big guns from major brands, mingling with fellow bloggers, including the lovely Jill Sieman of Glamamom who took these photos for me…and even modeling an outfit in their fashion show. I’ve included some of affiliate links so you can shop my look should you so desire!

I was one of the Ebates models and rocked a Gap animal print jacket, LOFT little black dress, BaubleBar multi-chain necklace and Tory Burch booties.

Celebrity hair stylist Sarah Potempa did our hair and I don’t think I would have attempted the intricate fishtail braided bun on my own, but it’s inspired me to get more creative with my hair…so you might be seeing some more braids and buns in the future. Just sayin’!

    Love the jacket. I’ve never learned to do a bun. Maybe I’ll ask my stylist next time I see her…

    I loved how chic you looked at Fashion Forward and I kept telling friends at my table that your top knot bun was so beautiful.
