Shoes and Speeches

Sorry for the slight blogging delay (I started having withdrawals on day two, I’ve missed you guys) but I was at a blogger conference over the weekend. Ironically enough, I wasn’t able to blog during the blogging conference. It seems so wrong, right?  But I digress. 
Of course I had no idea what to wear so I turned to my trusty mustard pants. And not to make my favorite red orange pumps jealous, but I might have picked up some new pink shoes. Pink is the new  red orange.  Right, Pantone
And if you ever wondered what I look like while giving a speech, it’s this: 

Compelling.

  1. I love the pink shoes with the mustard pants! I just bought some yellow pants. I think you made me do it. That’s what I told my husband, anyway! Can’t wait to wear them!

    I loved your speech yesterday as the keynote speaker! It really spoke to me as a blogger to be confident in my voice and stay true to myself and follow my dreams no matter the challenge. Unfortunatley I was unable to speak and meet you at the conference but I did speak with your husband on Saturday at the speed mentoring session. After hearing your speech yesterday, I loved that you both were on the same page and both gave out amazing advice and motivating inspiration!

  126. Your shoes are probably the single most expensive piece of clothing you wear every day, and are undoubtedly the garment you put under the most stress and expect the most out of. Take care of them and you can get some extra mileage out of your clothing budget.

    Of course your outfit was amazing…but your speech was so inspiring…even for those of us who have been out there for awhile.  I will share parts of it with my audience but also with my high school students!  You are living a dream and a great example of how others can do the same!!  Keep up the great work!  You are precious!

  136. This is my absolute favourite necklace of yours. I hope that doesn’t sound like I creepily categorize your clothing and such… 😀

    I love the colours here… They make me happy!

    Congrats on giving a speech at the conference, I’d be so so so anxious! :)

    I love this outfit, and your speech was so great!  I loved your comment about the danger of seeing others’ best and thinking it’s their always, and it was also great to hear the reminder that when you jump you will land… it may be on your face, but you will land.  You were so inspirational, and it was such a pleasure to hear you speak.  Thanks for taking the time to do this!  (Oh, and I’d definitely be in the 95%.) :)

    I really think mustard is a great neutral, but I never would have thought to pair it with that mint green color. Great thinking, though; it looks great!

    So glad you didn’t share about our private talks in between panels…the world isn’t ready for our real talks! #humblebrag

    i wish you posted more about the conference and the experience you had being the keynote speaker – i mean, that’s a pretty big deal.  i feel like i’ve learned more about you from some recaps a couple other bloggers gave and what they shared about you and your speech, so i’m a little disappointed you didn’t share more about that on your own blog.  but either way, you looked fantastic, i love the mint green top & necklace!

      Heidi — just because I haven’t posted anything doesn’t mean I won’t. It took a lot of time and effort to write and give the speech I did and I just don’t want to throw a post together. The subject that I spoke on means a lot to me and I want to give it the weight that it deserves. Going from the shop to a three-day conference and back to the shop doesn’t give a whole lot of time to write a great post, but hopefully in the next few weeks I can cover my experience!

        great, i look forward to reading it and learning more about you and your blog and the subject of your speech! i apologize if any way my comment came across as being demanding, it was not intended that way at all (darn internet that does not convey tone!). i have been following your blog for some time now and would just love to get to know you better and hear more of your thoughts about the things you have the opportunity to experience!

          No it really didn’t and mine probably came across as a crazy tired stressed out person. So we are even right? :)

          It’s actually really nice that you said something. Not that I hadn’t given thought to writing about it but sometimes my self-deprcation causes me to think that once something is done no one really cares to hear about it. So thank you for mentioning something. It’s a great encouragement. :)
