Conference Rundown

Here are a few random shots that I snapped during my recent conference trip to Fort Worth, featuring my new lady suit from Banana Republic.

This is me shortly before leaving for the airport to head home, clearly I have no idea about the nightmare flight and forced stay in Pittsburgh that's about to happen

This was day two, me in my lady suit: the skirt version ... as you can see, I packed the plaid blouse

This is the room I presented my paper in, before everyone showed up

Good ol' Pecos II

This is the lady suit with pants

My least favorite part of conferences? The name tag.


Finding places to prop the camera that also had good lighting was a real challenge

Next up, Denver this Thursday!

i like that you took the time to snap photos at your conference. don't care for the nametag either--it's getting in the way of that great top.

Dude, I was at that conference!!! I'm sad I didn't peep your fab fashions there (I was mostly attending the Spain -related talks). But it's great to see a sartorially stylin' academic on the interwebs. Keep up the good work! -@fsharden

You look super, rocking that suit with your own personal flair. I hate name tags, I always have the hardest time not writing something snarky on them.

Your lady suit looks great! I love it with the trousers AND the skirt! The cut is really nice too! UGH and don't you just HATE name tags? At least they're not pins. I can't bear pinning a nametag on anything!

Love your suits. Especially loving the cut on the pants. I have to wear suits so often for work but I sometimes still find myself struggling with feeling totally comfortable in them.

Classic. Love how you mixed it up with the patterned shirt underneath.

It's true -- nametags are quite the distraction from fashionable suiting! Nevertheless, you look great.
