You guys asked, so today I’m going to show you what I wore to Alt. I did not ask people to take pictures of my outfits during the conference, so I had to recreate these at home during the weekend.
I tried to bring basics and footwear that would work in multiple outfits in order to save space. Nonetheless, my suitcase was maxed out.
On Wednesday, I wore the above outfit while traveling and to the Friday night dinner. The black Atwell top has sheer, chiffon sleeves, which I find rather clever. I also wore a pair of Citizens of Humanity almost black Arley jeans. While traveling, I wore rainboots, but for dinner I changed into black Nine West pumps. My gold scale necklace by Laura Lombardi finished it off.
For the sessions on Thursday morning and afternoon, I layered a black tank top from Target under a navy silk blouse from Banana Republic. On the bottom I wore an Elmidae patterned, origami-like skirt, Calvin Klein black nylons, and the black Nine West pumps.
The Clue-theme party was Thursday night, and everyone was supposed to choose a color — white, mustard, scarlet, plum, green, or peacock. Originally I aimed for peacock. But when I got dressed at Alt, everyone told me I was wearing green, not “peacock”/teal. I’m still confused because this outfit reads teal to me, but my husband also thinks it’s green. Oh well.
The ruffle bottom dress in “viper snake” is by Aqua. I kept on my black Calvin Klein nylons and changed into Asos high heels. I accessorized with a spike and beaded bracelet by Spike of Creativity and a Cole Haan wristlet.
Friday, I wore a look you may have seen me in on the blog before — my deconstructed Abigail Glaum-Lathbury jacket over the black tank top from Target. On bottom I wore a rose-colored skirt I thrifted. I finished the outfit off with my new Pour la Victore Adeanna black flats and a clean pair of Calvin Klein black nylons.
The mini parties on Friday called for something festive, so I decided to wear the fascinator I wore to high tea during my bachelorette party. The red silk tee is from Club Monaco and the vintage 1940s skirt came from one of my favorite Etsy sellers. I also wore the black Nine West pumps. For accessories, I found a 1940s matching set — star necklace and star clip-on earrings.
I went for something more comfortable for Saturday’s workshops. I wore my abstract cloud-print blouse from Calvin Klein over the black tank top from Target. I rewore the Citizens of Humanity Arley jeans and Loeffler Randall mini lynx rain boots.
Also, I wanted to show you guys my business cards. If you haven’t heard, business cards are a big deal at Alt. Some people really pull out all the stops. My husband Travis and I designed the cards, and I had them printed by Moo on their luxe card stock. I really love how thick they are, and I’m smitten with the design. I have to give Travis credit for the back of the card — the reverse color and blown-up corset was all his idea.
