Conferencing it up – Poster Presentation Outfit

Hey loves!

Hello from San Diego! 

It is officially conference time at the ASBMB meeting, and yesterday I presented my poster and talked some science! I have been attending various talks and workshops all weekend, and it has been a really great experience thus far! I have been on the go since Friday, and my plans were to blog each day, but after a long day at the conference center listening to talks, I get back to the hotel and collapse on my bed! I have been chronicling my day to day outfits on my instagram (go follow me there, @phd_fashionista, to keep up to date), but I thought I would actually write a post about my outfit for the poster presentation today! 

I wore this pretty patterned top/blouse that I got from Express, and I paired it with black dress pants I also bought from Express, called the Editor, I really like the flattering cut of the pants! I tried on a pair of their ankle dress pants and with my body/legs, they actually made me look even shorter! So a bootcut pant is definitely my friend! 

I paired the outfit with the same comfy Nine West heels that I have worn in other outfits (and to be honest they have been worn into the ground, time for a new pair soon!), and some simple accessories. My necklace was a birthday gift from a great friend, Dina from, she hand laser cut the necklace as a part of her new zodiac collection! How cool is that?! my friends are so talented! And I also used my black tote bag from Zara, I love how chic it looks and it is big enough to fit a lot of my things! 

I’m a huge fan of wall art, so when I saw this wall I had to take a photo in front of it!

Top and Pants: Express | Shoes: Nine West | Necklace: Leaf and Crown | Bracelet: Charlotte Russe | Bag: Zara

My poster presentation went well, got some good feedback, and tonight I am hosting/cochair-ing a Student-led symposium that I organized, finally months of hard work is coming to fruition! I planned a session of 10 speakers, 2 main faculty speakers and 7 selected student talks, and I will finally see it in action! Super excited for that!

Anyway, I’m glad this has been a productive meeting, I will be posting more outfits soon, hope you are having a wonderful week!



PS. will announce the winner of the giveaway at the next post! sorry for the delay, I haven’t had time to sift thru the entries!
