I’m really bummed I cannot attend Reviewers Retreat this year because of my pregnancy airline restrictions. Since my due date got moved up, I can’t fly after 37 weeks. Thus, I’m hoping to be able to pull off Blog World a few days later, since it only requires a train ride and no evil TSA workers, but it depends on doctor clearance. (Update – doctor said no.)
The hubby is coming with me to NYC, so I can have flexibility to attend a variety of events, to which I am hoping to get an invitation to some of them. As a Toy Insider Parent Advisory Board member, I will be at the Big Toy Book event. I am also hoping to go to the Social Soiree party, as I had such blast last year in San Diego. (I am even using the fabulous Scout bag as my rockin’ hospital bag because it holds everything!)
The other event I hope to be able to attend is Getting Gorgeous. I’ve pulled funds together to attend the two non-BlogHer-related Getting Gorgeous events in NYC in 2011, but it is super exciting to think about possibility of going to it during BlogHer itself. Same with the Social Luxe Lounge. (Short of plastic surgery, this new Mama of two is going to need some serious pampering and beauty.) Since many of the events are about style and fashion, I’m not sure what my shape my postpartum body will be, but I have some fabulous Liz Lange dresses I’ve picked up at Target.
I’ve gotten a lot of compliments. though my favorite was from a five-year old and a teenager. However, I will have a little baby girl with me that should have some rockin’ outfits to wear during BlogHer, and the various conference and private events too. So here are three ideas that she could wear to cover her various social media outings. She has a lot to live up to since she has already had a personal Twitter party, appeared on TV, seen on YouTube, and been to Blissdom, SheStreams, BlogBetter Boston, and Mom 2.0 in utero.
I picked up this adorable Carter’s dress at a local consignment shop (with the tags still on it too). It is a bit over the top in its pink fluffiness, but it is perfect for an evening event with some little pink shoes.
Since it will be summer in the city, a lighter frock is a good style choice. This light yellow sundress I found at another consignment shop, with some handmade bumblebee fabric slippers, seems to fit an summer afternoon event to perfection.
Rockin’ the Morning
For a more edgy look, I love this Vitamin Baby ruffled onesie that I found at the Nordstrom Rack. Perfect by itself, or with a pair of coordinating Baby Legs, this could be a memorable outfit to start off the day.
So now that I have her wardrobe planned (and mine), so let’s hope we have some place to show them off during BlogHer 2012!
