First off, thanks to all of you who graciously took my survey yesterday! If you haven't yet and would like to here's the link. I'll share with you the results in the next week or so.
Many of you commented on Monday and Tuesday how you couldn't wait to hear more about Go Blog Social. Like I shared before, I really had a great time and met some great people. I've had lot of fun reading other bloggers recaps this week. One blogger said "It started feeling like the first day of high school and ended like the last day of college." I really liked that analogy. Once I get talking I love a good conversation and love to make connections with others, but I'll be the first to admit I am not brave enough to just walk up to others and introduce myself. I wish I was better at that and thankfully there were a lot of girls who were, or it's likely I wouldn't have met very many people.
Many other bloggers talked in their recaps about how important it is to celebrate each other's successes with the "one succeeds, we all succeed" mentality. I really love this. All blogger share this same hobby, so it really shouldn't be a competition between girls. I think it's natural to be somewhat disappointed when you hear about opportunities that other bloggers are getting that you don't have. HOWEVER, I also loved this quote I heard at the conference: "Don't compare someone else's middle to your beginning." So true, who knows what opportunities will come your way down the road and celebrate the good stuff that is happening to others!
Now to my outfit: Recently I went out with some friends for dinner, then we went to JCP because one of my friends had a $10 off $25 coupon code and shared it with us. I picked up this top and these Joe Fresh jeans (sold out online, similar to these) for $10...which means these jeans were free. Not bad :) I was excited to try them out and decided to pair them with my window pane top and favorite blazer. I really like how it came together.
Blazer: Loft similar
Necklace: Purple Peridot same
Heels: Audrey Brooke similar
