Anyone who’s anyone in the lady blogging community has been to, plans to go to, really wishes they could win a trip to, or at least been marginally to immensely annoyed by the hashtag of BlogHer.
It’s one of those things that every committed female blogger in this nation (and some in others too) will eventually find herself contemplating. And, when you do, you will likely find yourself in one of the following camps:
Camp Hater-ade. “Ew, 4000 chicks in one place? Shoot me now I’d never go to that.”
Camp Defeatist. “Gosh, I’d so love to go to that, but I’ll never be able to afford it, and finding a sponsor is never gonna happen because I’m lazy my blog is tiny and no one cares about poor, little me.”
Camp Count Me In. “I’m so there! I can see my online besties in real life, maybe connect with some brands, possibly learn something if I can tear myself away from my pals long enough to go to a session, and have an all around amazing time! Ohmagosh so, like, what do I wear?!”
Camp Hater-ade & Camp Defeatist won’t be in attendance at BlogHer13 (but I will! I’m speaking on a panel and I totally hope you all come by and fist bump me!), so this post is for all of you fly mothers in Camp Count Me In, because, seriously, it’s in like three days, what ARE you gonna wear?!
Personally, I am taking one carry-on sized eligible suitcase to BlogHer this year. I know I can do it, because I actually did it last year too. You can see how it all worked here: How to Pack Light.
This is what I’ll be wearing this year for attendance Thursday through Saturday…
Things to note. Stacy London WON’T be there (at least, not that I know of). I will wear a sweater on top of every single item you see pictured here. I hate to be cold and my arms creep me out. And, I’m flying home Saturday afternoon so you’ll likely need a more comprehensive fashion plan than this if you’re gonna be there through Sunday. Unless you intend to take a naked day in Chicago. Which would be as illegal as it would be awesome.
Maybe this will help…
Also, bring a cardigan. Or three. And some shoes that are easy on your feet when walking. And business cards. And a camera; the one on your phone should be fine if you’re kickin’ it 2013 style and aren’t still rocking a flip phone. And, your best smile. Because I’m gonna need to see that.
