Tieka Shares a Peek Inside Her Suitcase!

Hi, ModCloth readers! Tieka here from Selective Potential. I’m all packed up for my trip out to the Texas Style Council Conference. I’m so excited to spend time with so many fellow bloggers, meet new people, see some great style, and learn more about blogging!

For the Solo Happy Hour, I thought I’d wear this cute yellow dress with a fun art pattern. I love the fancy detail of the gold buttons on the shoulder. This dress will be perfect for a relaxed evening of socializing before the crazy weekend begins!

For the Speed Mentoring Breakfast and Boutique Crawl on Saturday, I wanted to wear something comfortable, yet fun. I went for a nautical color theme, featuring my favorite pleated ModCloth skirt, navy blue blouse, and red striped scarf! For the Boutique Crawl, we’ll be doing a lot of walking — so packing flats is a must! I can’t wait to stop at a food truck for the first time while we’re out shopping.

On Sunday, for the big Social Media Symposium, I packed an adorable floral print Eva Franco dress, my Mary Jane heels, a vintage lace top, and my circle sunnies for the sunny Texas weather. I’ll be standing up there in style along with Turi for our workshop session! I’m hoping to pull off bare legs for the entire trip. Coming from Michigan, it almost seems impossible!

Are you attending the Texas Style Council Conference? What will you wear?

    Love that floral printed dress!! Actually, I kind of love it all. The print on the first dress is beautiful and that skirt and blouse paired together is perfect! How is it that I can never pack this well or this efficiently??

    Austin is having amazing weather right now, so soak it in while you can! I’ll be at the conference next year, excited to be a part of it all!

    I am so seriously jealous of everyone who gets to go to the Texas Style Council. I only live a few hours away but it’s already sold out 🙁

    My heart’s oh so broken.

    Love the pleated skirt and blue blouse. Great outfit choices Tieka!

    Ah! So adorable. I really, really can’t wait until everyone comes home from this conference and I can finally see all the pictures. Everyone’s been hyping it for weeks, and I’m so excited!

    Also, Tieka, that yellow dress is probably absolutely perfect on you. You wear yellow so well. It should really be like a signature color or something. <3

    That last dress is so gorgeous! Can’t wait to see pictures from the trip!

    I love the name Tieka! I also am in love with the outfits. This is a great peek inside an efficiently packed suitcase. Thanks so much!

    Great outfit! Love the bright and sunny 70s esque floral pattern paired with the black lace and statement heels. I really couldn’t agree more with your choice of the “Happy Hour” dress as I have the exact one hanging in my closet as well 😉 Yellow colors are terribly, terribly under-worn these days!

    Super cute outfits that go beyond the boring old basics that get stuffed into suitcases just for the sake of space. Ha.
