What the Teacher Wore...to a Education Conference

Next week at this time, I'll be livin' it up in Orlando, FL at the Teachers Pay Teachers conference....and I cannot wait!  This is my first TPT conference and the first teacher conference that I've been to in a loooong time.  So, the question is- What will I wear?

My rule is to always, always choose what makes me feel good and to not worry about everyone else.  I know what fits my body type well, and what doesn't fit my body well.  You won't find me in spaghetti straps or jumpsuits.  I love them on others, but yikes on me! I also try to stick with a color palette.  This makes packing so much easier, because you'll need less but can easily mix and match.  This time, I stuck with my brand colors of navy, white, and green with stripes #ofcourse.  I also added in a lot of cognac and gold accessories.

I always dress really comfortably on flights, but I also don't like to look like a slob.

 On the way down, I'm going with leggings and one of my favorite summer tunics.  I'll probably grab a cardigan or denim jacket to throw over top in case it's chilly.

On the way home, I have a simple tank and jeans with some simple accessories.  I love a cute baseball hat for messy, humid hair days.

For the conference days and hanging out at the resort, I tried to choose things that would be 1- comfortable, 2-layered for temperature, and 3-not sloppy.  I know it's going to be blazing hot, but we're also going to be inside most of the time.

At night, we have a few really fun meet-ups and happy hours.  I'm sticking with my vibe of comfy, cool, and stylish.

I am going to take a pair of black, skinny ankle pants that can be easily mixed with my other pieces.  I'll probably throw in another dress, as well.  I haven't decided which one, yet.  

In addition to the above outfits, I'll will definitely pack a bathing suit #noselfiesthankyouverymuch and some easy shorts and tees for hanging out.  

If you're heading to Orlando, what are you wearing?  If not, what do you love wearing to conferences and PD sessions?  I'd love to hear!
