Red Wedges for the Conference

I’m usually a light packer. Carry-on restrictions force me to edit my travel wardrobe. But this past weekend I didn’t have as many limitations. I drove to Portland for a vegan bloggers conference. I might have packed five pair of shoes but I’m not admitting to anything!

Pants: Swapped
Shoes: Payless
Necklace: The Vegan Woman
Bracelets: Boutique on Bainbridge Island
Tote: NARN

Part of my wardrobe dilemma was weather. Rain, sun, warm days, cool nights. It’s hard to pack for all that. I packed heels for a gala, flats to go with my capris, boots for rainy days and well, the wedges were not at all necessary, but I like them.

In the end, instead of packing “outfits,” I packed various items that all went together so I could assemble them on the day of, depending on the weather. A tank top, t-shirt, cardigan, and light sweater covered the bases for my tops. Jeans capris, cargo pants, and a maxi skirt gave me variety for the bottoms. A denim jacket was the perfect evening piece and worked with everything but my jeans (that’s just too much denim!).

I wore my new “vegan” necklace too (and packed a cute empty cage necklace by The Sapphire Bee). I thought they were a good fit for the theme of the conference.

You can read about the pre-conference (my first day in Portland) on my other blog. I had great luck with airbnb, and I found cute shops and vegan bars. What’s not to love?

  1. Good find on the payless wedges! I noticed them right away at the 1st class on Friday. I went to payless recently, and had no luck, but those looked great!

  2. Must’ve been wonderful, surrounded by compassionate people!! I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about the conference and I’ll check out your compassion blog.

    I love red shoes!!! Yours are beautiful!!

    Pura vida!! ❤

    • Yes, I’ll write about the conference soon! It was such a fun weekend. And great to be around so many passionate and compassionate bloggers. There were speakers and sessions, socials and luncheons, and a host of vendors. If anyone thinks vegans don’t have good food or fashion choices, this conference would dispel that myth!

Let's chat! I love hearing from you:
