What does one wear when one has to be a) Fashion Forward, b) Comfortable enough to drive, take 2 trains and walk in New York City and c) Drop off kids at school??  A tartan plaid pencil skirt of course!

I had the pleasure of attending the Momtrends Fashion Forward Conference a month ago.  This was my very first Momtrends event and I officially believe the hype.  The Fashion Forward Conference is definitely the place you want to be if you want inspiration, a latte with your face in it and great company.

The evening before the conference, the pressure was on so I opened a giant bag of Cheese Doodles to help.  I decided on tartan plaid pencil skirt by XOXO just in case I had to do the bend and snap but still wanted my Spanx to be incognito.  I paired the skirt up with a denim shirt at first but my son is going through a breaking buttons phase and whenever he finds me in a button down top, he will pull it apart in seconds.  Therefore, last minute changes had to be made in order to avoid ANOTHER wardrobe malfunction at 7:30 in the morning.  I threw on a black t-short and my repeat offenders which are the Baublebar and Nordstrom collabo necklace which is sold out but you can find on that is almost identical on the Baublebar website., Zara blazer and Nine West Kenzie caged sandals which I cannot get enough of.  I cannot find the Kenzie sandals anywhere but I did find these at Kohl’s by Lauren Conrad which are also super cute.

I enjoyed the conference so much and hope I’m cool enough to be invited back next year.  I also have high hopes that my son has grown out of his button popping stage by then.
