city blue & #HerConference


dress: CottonOn (similar here & here) | sandals: Mossimo | watch: Fossil | earrings: Chloe + Isabel | sunnies: Ray-Ban

Summer sunshine and strolling the streets of NYC – what’s not to love? This weekend, I had the opportunity to attend the annual Her Campus Conference for the second year in a row, but this time with a few of my friends/fellow chapter members from St. Mike’s! With the #HerConference on Saturday and having arrived the day prior, we spent Friday afternoon wandering through Soho to do a bit of shopping and naturally, stopping for the most incredible sweet treats at Molly’s Cupcakes before heading back to our hostel up on 101st street for the night.

Saturday at the conference was completely filled with inspirational speakers, career advice, fabulous giveaways and of course, all the snackies you could ever want. So many style and media role models in one place made for a wildly successful day, and I’ve definitely taken away some tips & tricks for blogging, deciding your career path and more that I’ll be sharing in an upcoming post!

This blue CottonOn dress (one of my favorite purchases in South Africa) was the #ootd for the conference, which was just dressy enough but not over-the-top when paired with my black & cognac leather sandals. Simple, chic and breezy for a hot summer day in the city!


Chloe + Isabel earrings included in my #HerConference goody bag. IN LOVE.
