My Blissdom Wardrobe!
Have I mentioned that at the last minute, again, I have decided to attend Blissdom? Originally I thought Tessa would be too young to even think about going. However, she will be 7 weeks old (yes, still pretty young by most standards. Actually, come to think of it I think that she will be the youngest attendee. I grow them young!) and my husband was very encouraging a few weeks ago about me attending. He even had the crazy notion to suggest I leave both kids with him for the weekend. Ha! I love him too much to do that to him. And thankfully Blissdom is baby friendly which makes it a no-brainer to take her with me.
So all around the blogosphere women are talking about what they are going to wear to the conference. They are spending lots of money getting their eyebrows, nails and hair done. They are awake at night wondering what other women will be wearing and whether they will be dressed appropriately. Their nerves are on edge.
I know because that was me last year. I was 4 months post-partum and hadn’t yet achieved my pre-pregnancy weight which meant that I had to buy new outfits because nothing other than my pajama pants fit.
And this year? This year I know better than to worry. No one cared what I was wearing. I didn’t care what I was wearing as long as it wasn’t giving my feet blisters. And well, maybe it is because these will be the items I am wearing the entire conference:
Really, with either of these on no one will be seeing what I am wearing. And, honestly, with this cuteness in my arms (or on my torso) who will EVER notice me? I won’t get more than a passing glance. And I am certain no one will remember what I was wearing, unless of course we have a projectile vomiting episode. In which case I can guarantee that I won’t be forgotten!
So I am relaxing and going comfortable. And when asked what I am wearing for Blissdom, I politely respond, “Tessa.”
**I should mention that I am in the process of reviewing both products and plan to report back to all of you my feelings after the conference. I am sure both will get MUCH use!
