my less serious day: conference accessories

I was thrilled when I saw these conference badges and so excited to wear them non-stop for four entire days and evenings. They couldn't have picked a more subtle shade of blue or made them any less obtrusive. What a perfect complement to my carefully assembled outfits and my perfectly selected accessories...


Skirt: Hype; blouse: gifted via sister-in-law; necklace: LOFT; horrible conference badge: courtesy of the fashion-clueless conference organizers; sandals: OluKai.


I didn't have time before my morning conference session to fit in a run, and I just couldn't motivate myself to do anything too intense when I got home. Instead, I took an hour walk with my pup.


Breakfast was a bowl (x2) of Wheaties, Cheerios, banana, and cow's milk courtesy of my hotel.

My mid-morning snack for the drive home from the conference: an apple, Quaker Oatmeal Squares, golden raisins, and raw almonds.

I sought an Earth Fare on my drive home for lunch. I hit up the salad bar and created a bowl of salad goodness including spinach, spring mix, grape tomatoes, baby bella mushrooms, carrots, olives, mozzarella cheese, a 'ratatouille patty', diced chicken, white balsamic vinegar, and olive oil. A lime-flavored seltzer water on the side.

This afternoon, I collapsed on the couch when I returned home and ate one too many un-documented bowls of granola/cereal/peanuts/chocolate chips. I am trying to erase this from my memory...

Dinner was a mixed bowl of wild rice, roasted eggplant, sauteed spinach and grape tomatoes, sausage, and jalapenos. Courtesy of M.

Every girl deserves ice cream after a long day. I had this bowl of pistachio ice cream for dessert.

Note: this post represents what happened in my world on Thursday, August 30. 


  1. A ratatouille patty? That sounds awesome - what was in that?

  2. Adorable outfit, yum that ice cream looks good!

  3. I love pistachio ice cream! So underrated.

  4. Your eats are always so nutritious & creative!

  5. That is a really nice outfit, and I love the necklace! Lately I have been loving roasted eggplant :)

  6. Your salad looks amazing! Your outfit is so cute, too!

  7. Love your outfit! I don't think I'll ever get tired of high-wasted skirts. (:
    And you definitely deserved that ice-cream. Pistachio used to be my all time favorite flavor...I must find a vegan version!

  8. I love that necklace! I think most of my necklace collection comes from Loft. Your lunch looks awesome as well :)
