Finding Your Blogging Conference Fashion

Since 2011, my blogging conference fashion style has always incorporated Dansko shoes. This past weekend was no different, so I have to give a big thank you to Dansko Footwear for sending me a rockin’ pair of sandals to wear this spring.

Finding Your Blogging Conference Style

FInding your blogging conference style depends on a lot of factors. Your personality, the time of year, the location of the conference and even the type of conference.  I can assure you there are probably hundreds of posts written on conference fashion and style.

Some people will tell you to wear what is comfortable. I say wear what you feel comfortable in. Find something that looks great and makes you feel good. So if that’s a favorite sweater and jeans, fantastic. If it’s a pretty dress and your favorite jacket that works too.

I’m a jeans girl. There is no question. But lately I’ve been trying to step up my game a little bit. A friend turned me onto ModCloth last summer and I’ll be the first to tell you I know have a ModCloth dress problem. In all fairness, this dress that I wore in San Diego is CUTE right? Since it was a little chilly I paired it with a cardi  from Target(which of course you really can’t see) and my favorite corduroy jacket from Prana. Also almost hidden from view is a leather crossbody clutch that I just love.

For me though, no great outfit is complete without a kickass pair of shoes. Often, that’s a pair of RED shoes. I bought my first pair of Dansko clogs in 2009. I admit this brand of shoes dominates my footwear collection. I have boots, sandals, clogs, mules, you name it. They are one of the few pairs of shoes that I can slip on and they fit and feel like I’ve been wearing them for years, even if I haven’t.

The latest addition to my show collection is the Felicia Sandal. This versatile sandal features a ankle strap and wedge heel – it’s a perfect pairing to nearly anything – jeans, dresses, shorts… You’d never know I’m rocking a 3 1/2″ heel would you? The contoured cork footbed is crazy comfortable – not unlike the rest of the Dansko shoes I own.

In addition to feeling really great this weekend in a fun dress and fabulous shoes, my friend Danielle from Simmworks Family took these photos of me so I could show them off. Thanks Danielle!

One more thing, I’ll be giving away a pair of Dansko shoes from their spring collection during the Spring Fashionista Giveaway Event, which starts on March 6! There are over 100 participating blogs and lots of amazing FASHION prizes, so you won’t want to miss it!

  1. What is a “little chilly” in San Diego, like 55? 😛

    Love the shoes and love the toenail paint too!

  2. I love the daisy print, so cute! That dress looks really comfortable!

  3. Love the look! You’re so put together without looking like you’re uncomfortable. Great layers are essential for conferences… one room might be boiling hot, and the next may be like walking into an igloo! I’ll have to remember this post as I plan my looks for Go Blog Social next month!

  4. I have always wanted to try Dansko shoes. I’m a teacher, on my feet all day long — these look so very comfortable!

  5. Jenna Wood says:

    Having comfortable shoes at a conference is a must, and Dansko is great at comfort and style. I just love that beautiful red color and the detailing of those wedges!

  6. Super cute. I love those shoes! I agree that comfortable shoes are key to having a good conference experience.

  7. The shoes look and sound fab. No I didn’t notice how high they were until you mentioned it. My favorite kind of heels…comfy and sky high.

  8. I just love the wedge on that heel. Super cool with the mix of colors too. Once again, you have ROCKED your Danskos.

  9. I’m wondering if your review is fortuitous. I was JUST looking up Dansko shoes because I’m so tired of my feet hurting so much if I’m up and walking around for a large part of the day. I googled, “most comfortable shoes”, and one of the names mentioned was Dansko. I would love to try these shoes out to see if they are as comfortable as everyone says they are!

    These shoes are so pretty and I also love the blue nail color.

  11. Cynthia C says:

    They are very pretty. Good to know they are comfortable as well!

  12. Love the shoe and nail polish combo. Looks fabulous and stylish but comfy too!

  13. trenda tillson says:

    I am in LOVE with these shoes! That happens to be one of my favorite nail colors as well!

  14. Very cute old school style coming back. I like the color too!

  15. Christy H says:

    I love those shoes with that dress! So cute!

  16. Shirley Carr says:

    Very cute old school style coming back.

  17. Laura Wilson says:

    I love those shoes. They are very versatile and you could wear them with many things.

  18. BlackAsphodel says:

    I like these, but my favorite from Dansko are the Sonnet Shimmer Suede Leather Black Shimmer sandals. All of their shoes look comfy.

  19. I Love the look of these Dansko shoes. They will go far in matching many different outfits!
