Blog Fete Conference Day Attire

Blog Fete conference day attire

Blog Fete is an awesome day of learning and meeting new people. So what is the dress code, you ask? Think cute denim paired with punchy accessories. Keep it classic with a pop of one color or turn up the volume by mixing prints. Just be you! Layering is always good for those unpredictable hotel conference rooms. Don't forget to bring the basics like pens, pencils and a fun notebook for all your note taking! And since you will probably be sharing the day on social media, don't forget to bring a back up battery. They are a total MUST for any blogging conference. 1. Classic Crepe Woven Top from Forever 21 2. Gold Ice Spike Strand from Bauble Bar 3. Pyramid Gem Bangle from Bauble Bar 4. Black Shopper Bag from Zara 5. The Rockstar Printed Skinny from Old Navy 6.
