Mom Style | What I Wore This Week 02.29.12
For more outfit inspiration, check out all of my Mom Style posts.
This is more of a What I Wore To Blissdom post than anything, because I’ve been wearing yoga pants ever since I got home. (True story.)
I actually wore yoga pants ON THE PLANE. I’ve never done this before, but I’m here to tell you, it’s incredibly liberating! I’ve always been one to dress nicely when I fly, but I notice more and more women wearing comfy clothing for plane travel, and I decided to join them and I’m not going to apologize for it either.
They are NICE yoga pants, not my pajamas.
But anyway. As you will soon see, I more than made up for my yoga-pants-wearing ways while I was at Blissdom.
I arrived late afternoon on Wednesday and quickly changed into the gray “bat sweater” with the purple tank and black boots to go downtown Nashville for dinner. I went to Big River Grille with my roomies, Lisa and Christina. I didn’t get a picture in Nashville, but it’s this exact same outfit. I even remembered to bring my boot socks and silver necklace. Will wonders never cease!?
Thursday was the first day of the conference, and I broke out my raisin-colored jeans and the asymmetrical sweater with the black tank. I wore black ballet flats instead of boots because I was trying to follow my own advice. See #2.
Lisa gifted me with this gorgeous necklace, which I’m sure you’ll be seeing A LOT.
It fit perfectly in the neckline of my sweater.
Thursday night was the opening night party, and we all got glammed up. I wish I had a photo of my roomies that night, but we didn’t think of it. They looked AH-mazing. I wore my Elie Tahari silk top with black skinny cords (they’re such a fine-wale, they’re almost like velvet) and black suede pumps. I’ve only ever worn this top with jeans, and I like it this way for a change. Earrings and necklace by Stella & Dot.
Friday I wore my orange Free People sweater and brown suede boots. The only photo I have is with Christine. Isn’t she adorable!?

Friday night was another big party night. I wore my Milly dress with suede pumps this time. I felt fantastic.
On Saturday I wore my gray drapey and red jeans with the black flats and my Encircled Earrings and Necklace from Studio Jewel. Ignore the stupid look on my face. I was talking while Lisa was trying to take my picture. I loved carrying my Kelly Moore Libby bag. I carried it every day. It holds EVERYTHING, and it’s so gorgeous. I got compliments on it wherever I went.
I wore the same outfit home on the plane on Sunday.
I haven’t been much into getting fancied up since I got home. I’ve been in recovery mode. I did manage to get myself into a cozy sweater and boots yesterday to take the kids to the dentist. OUCH. That was painful (on the pocketbook, that is).
I know this isn’t the most flattering sweater. Those pockets at the waist add unnecessary bulk. But it is cozy, and I think (I *hope*) it looks better when I’m moving around in it than it does when I’m standing stock still, looking straight at the camera.
Style tip: when your sweater is too short, wear a tank or a t-shirt underneath it to extend the length of your torso and give your body the proper proportions. Remember the rule of thirds.
