Style Bloggers of Color Conference

Right now I'm sitting in bed at Hotel Indigo in Atlanta. It feels amazing to be here. The last time I was here I was researching graduate schools and had visited Emory. Atlanta has a certain southern charm that I love being a southern girl at heart. I'm here for the Style Bloggers of Color Conference. I was invited by Mattie who was the brains behind this fabulous new conference. I felt honored to be chosen to moderate the first panel. It's been a whirlwind of bonding with other bloggers, and delicious southern food and luxury at the Indigo Hotel.

I really loved the cool design at Indigo Hotel. The food was on point too. Once breakfast was had me and a few of the other panelists shared a cab over to the event space.

Necklace and Purse: Light Years

This is what I wore to the conference. I decided to keep it fun, flirty and colorful.
I picked up this Trouve blouse at Nordstroms while in North Carolina visiting family last week. My necklace and purse both came from Light Years an awesome accessories store in North Carolina at South Point Mall. I've gotten so many compliments on my $30 STEELE!

I had such a great time at the conference and learned a lot especially about working with brands and monetizing my blog. Here are a few great tidbits of information via twitter.

I'm sure the Style Bloggers of Color Conference will be one that continues to grow and grow every year and I look forward to attending many more!
