I wrote this post last night and then it disappeared into the ether. Trying again and crossing fingers.
In Montreal I wore my slouchy distressed skinnies and my new Zara jacket for a reading in a 60s inspired café. Got some compliments on the jacket and it was easy to wear.
But now I have a busy weekend ahead, and some new sartorial challenges.
AM: Travel (train) and some brief shopping (returns)
PM: Gala for National Magazine Awards. Outfit here to be decided tomorrow (either the fuchsia pant suit or the Nicole Miller sheath.)
All day conference for paid job, including listening to others present, and giving a presentation as part of a panel. I'll probably be seated on a dais.
PM: Dinner with clients and colleagues in a fairly informal venue.
Daytime presentations at conference.
Interviewing four clients. (Video interviews, but I won't be on camera.)
PM: Dinner with colleagues at somewhat dressy venue.
Daytime: More client interviews.
My main concerns:
What to wear for Saturday's presentation and dinner. I won't really be able to change because I am staying at some distance from the conference venue and won't have time to go back. (I can bring a tote for small switch-ups, however.)
Note: I work for a fitness/ nutrition company. My colleagues are young, many are sporty, and some will wear gear for much of the conference, while others will be quite casual. Clients will be in gear or casually dressed. They will dress up for dinner, however.
What to wear for Sunday's dinner. I could, perhaps, wear whichever outfit I do not wear to the gala, but I think that might be a bit formal for the situation.
Also, the weather is not really cooperating with me. It is going to be somewhat cooler than I might reasonably expect, and rainy some of the days.
Pic 1: Montreal reading WIW
Pic 2: Possible for presentation, with a topper of some kind. I could bring my tube skirt and maybe kimono to switch into for the evening supper?
Pics 3-6: Possibles for Sunday dinner? Are any of these okay? NOTE: I didn't own the gold shoes when these photos were taken; I could switch to those and switch up all accessories, of course.
Open to all suggestions.
