What to wear to a blogger party? That was the question. And Corilynn helped provide the answer, with her black-and-cognac combo that I pinned last week. The event — my first-ever blogger get-together! — was the Pacific Northwest Blogger Holiday Party. I will post personal pics and more about the event tomorrow, so stay tuned!

I didn’t want to be too dressed up — it is Portland, and the style here is never that formal — but I wanted to feel put-together, and most of all, comfortable. Looking back, I think I hit the vibe exactly right — there was lots of fall layering and gorgeous boots on display. And I got to display my new cognac riding boots! 🙂
Details: Chevron striped dress: Old Navy, gift-carded last spring / Denim jacket: Kohl’s, old / Cognac riding boots: Macy’s, new / Cognac bow belt: Mango, came with another dress, Abu Dhabi, 2010 / Tan-and-black tote bag: Christian Siriano for Payless, last winter / Black tights: Wal-mart?, old / Cameo necklace: My grandmother’s, vintage
For my hair, I kept the hair long and straight, but braided a rope braid on either side of my regular side part to help keep my hair off my face. My husband Sam said the effect looked kind of like a headband — but one made of my own hair! 😉
