Barcelona Conference Fashion – Chambray dress, fringe and a Blazer

Hello from Barcelona loves!

Today I bring you an outfit I am wearing to the conference here in Barcelona! It’s been a long day of traveling from LA, and after settling in the hotel room, I decided to check out the convention center, check in to the conference, and sit in for some talks before heading out and seeing some sights and getting dinner!

Since it will be 90 degrees F (~32 degrees C) all week here, I decided to mostly wear dresses to the conference! In order to make the dresses look more professional, I am pairing them with a blazer and some heels! 

I have to present at the poster competition tomorrow, so I will be wearing something similar! I am excited to present my research internationally and get great ideas about my research and other research going on in the community! 

I have been eyeing the chambray trend for a while now, and I finally bought a chambray dress from eShakti. I previously posted about new trends at eShakti and this is one of the dresses I fell in love with!  It is long enough to be sophisticated while providing a flattering look with a sweetheart neckline! I added the plain black blazer  (Steve Harvey Collection) on top to wear inside the convention center, since it is too hot outside to be wearing long sleeves, but sitting in talks all day inside will become a little chilly with the AC! I also wore this fringed black purse I got from Ross – Brand “Perfect Image” (store similar to TJ Maxx), I can’t remember the brand, but it was $12 and I have been eyeing this kind of purse for months now (as if you couldn’t tell from my posts!). I tried to pack lightly so I brought a few pieces I could match with different outfits, so you will be seeing similar pieces adapted to different things! I have a tendency to over pack, but I was determined to pack smart this time! (I had to pack for both a 4-day conference and vacation!)

Dress: | Blazer: Steve Harvey | Accessories: Purse: Perfect Image, Ross Stores | Heels: Nine West | Necklace: Charlotte Russe | Sunglasses: Gift Shop 

What do you think about this outfit for a conference? 

Check out my next post (on Thursday) to see how I styled this for drinks/dinner/nightlife after leaving the conference! It’s all in the accessories baby!

I am posting photos from my trip over on my INSTAGRAM, so follow me on there and stay tuned for a travel diary post when I get back!

Stay cool,

    I am crossing my fingers for a great presentation of the poster, I mean, just an expression, because I am sure you did a great job and you don't need any fingers crossed! I am so glad to know that you are in Barcelona now, and yes, such a huge time flying… but it will be worth! As for the outfit, totally goooo with it to the poster day – you look smart (you are!), stylish, professional and beautiful! I loved the chambray dress and the jacket and the shoes are also perfect for the looks! So glad about this achievement, seems like I know you in person! After the poster, enjoy some days of holidays!
