On My Bod: Time for Texas

Tomorrow I jet off once again, my destination? Austin, Texas, one of my all time favorite cities. I'm very excited to be speaking this weekend at the Texas Style Council Conference, my subject will be one I'm quite familiar with: balancing your blog and a full-time job, while staying as sane as possible. Lulu's was kind enough to outfit me for my trip, so today I'm giving you a little sneak peek of what's in my suitcase, and the outfits I've planned, because I just can't resist a good lay-down shoot.

Since I'll be trading 100+ degree temperatures for 60 degree temps when I fly from Austin to San Francisco on Monday, I'm packing lots of pieces that can be easily transitioned from summer swelter, to what feels more like fall.

I'll be sharing my presentation, along with a full recap of the conference when I return. In the meantime, if you're attending the conference or following along from home and there's anything specific you'd like me to address on the subject of blog/life/work balance (or life in general), please let me know!
