Sub in "blog conference experience" for "boyfriend", and that's the sort of pep talk I'm giving myself about Texas Style Council, the social media shindig I'm attending this weekend. I can do this! I have sparkly shoes! And, since I'm such a Big Damn Deal and all, nevermind how potentially douchetacular this seems, business cards! Besides, this is supposed to be fun, even for recovering introverts like me! Exclamation point!!!
For any new Pretties I meet this weekend - welcome! I'm Melissa, lover of classic style, a wife, stay-at-home mother, retired lawyer, and non-retired smartass. I'm on a quest to avoid the dreaded "Mom Uniform" while parenting my darling 1.5 year old boy and watching far too much "Downton Abbey". I'm about more than what I wear, though - where I travel, what I'm reading, and who I'm judging are all fair game here; you can read more about my drivel here
For my regulars - when I'm not otherwise fretting about what to wear, I'll try to update over the next few days via my Twitter and Instagram (which you can now access online here, voila!) - since you'll obviously be spending your every waking moment wondering, "What is she doing? What is she wearing? I HAVE TO KNOW RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE!!!"
Or not. Ahem.
Any advice on how to best do one of these conferences - or, failing that, which shoes look best with *deep breaths* inner poise?
