What I wore to my first blogger party

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! UPDATE:  Click here for event pics!

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! 🙂

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! 😉

          Thanks, Erin! It’s one of my favorite belts, but I *never* wear it with the dress it came with. It actually came with my cat dress, but I always think it looks kind of odd with it. But still, I am glad it DID come with the dress — more bang for my buck! 😉

    Dropping by from Three-fer Thursday! I always have to think hard about what I’m going to wear to blogger events! Though NYC style can be anything from super casual to designer, so it’s really tricky! 🙂 I like the look you went with, very fun and put together.
