My Style: Windblown Is Not My Signature Look

printed versona dress

Hey, friends! Happy Tuesday! I'm back in blogging action today after a fantastic weekend in Charleston with my blogger besties and a few new favorites. I can't wait to do a full recap of all the fun for you! For now, though, you can head over to my instagram (@_julieleah_) and scroll through some photos that I took around the city. Charleston truly is one of the most beautiful cities I've ever visited.

I wanted to jump right in today and share what I wore to #SBSCon on Saturday at The Riviera Theatre. I knew it was going to be a long day at the conference and of shooting photos afterward, so I wanted an outfit that was comfortable, stylish, and breezy (hello, SC humidity) - the only relief was a decent breeze that would blow every now and then.

I'll be sharing a full recap of the conference soon, don't you worry. In the meantime, if you're a blogger in the south, I definitely recommend popping over to The Southern Blog Society and applying. I know you won't regret it! If you have questions about joining, please don't hesitate to email me :)

Let's Go There: What I'm Packing for #SBSCon


Happy (early) weekend, friends! I'm starting my voyage to Charleston today and heading to Knoxville overnight. I get to visit one of my best friends, snuggle her precious baby boy, and get up bright and early Friday morning to meet Katie and Jessica for our drive down south. Once we get there, we're meeting up with the fourth member of our crew, Shelby, and packing in every bit of fun we can in four days. I hope you'll follow along with us! Below are some of the things packed in my suitcase for the weekend!

**

This is the third annual Southern Blog Society Conference, and I am so proud of my girls Jessica and Cathy for all the love and hard work they pour into this organization. It has truly changed my blogging game and my life. It's come such a long way since the first Sunday brunch we had in Atlanta back in 2013. I can't wait to see what these babes have dreamed up this year!




Most of the time I make a list. This time, I didn't. I may end up regretting it, but I swear, I feel like I have packing down to a science as much as I travel. For this trip in particular, I wanted to pull together some really stylish looks while still feeling like I'm not overdone. It's South Carolina in June so I also wanted to pack all pieces that were breezy and breathable - nothing tight or stuffy. I'm packing just a few pairs of shoes that can be mixed with everything in my suitcase - especially if I change my mind about dressing something up or down. My jewelry is all colorful, tassel-y, and fun - very summertime! 




I really can't pick a favorite thing! I love my new pineapple clutch from Talbots and my Lilly jumpsuit. Honestly, there isn't anything in my suitcase for this trip that I don't love. I'm taking a variety of clutches that I can mix and match with my different outfits and that won't weigh me down when we're out exploring. And my Jacks, you know I'm taking those to Charleston!

My Style: Perfect Black Dress, Yes


I'm pretty sure this dress needs to come with me to Charleston. It's the most comfy, flowy thing I own. I'm sure you recognize the cut from this dress. I should have ordered it in mint, too, when it was available. You only remember the regrets, right? Make sure to check out my friend Kristyn's packing list for this weekend and check back in on Friday for my Charleston packing list, too!

Happy hump day, friends!
