Sorry for the lateness of this post, but I was exhausted with all the running around at the end of the conference! I bring you the last post in my series of Conference Fashion posts for the Experimental Biology Meeting I went to in Boston this week! The last day of the conference was Wednesday, and I was presenting my data in a poster session (see last photo of the post!). I was sad to be done in Boston, as I fell in love with the city and the city life. I was also sad the conference was over, as I had learned so much going to all of the talks and interacting with all of these great, intelligent people!
A lot of people came to my poster, and I was excited because most of the people I saw give talks came to talk to me and hear about my research. I got a lot of great ideas and had some amazing conversations about new research in the field! I am inspired to go back and do more experiments!
I wasn't going to photograph my last outfit, as I had a really hard time deciding what to wear (I changed about 4 times, all too early in the AM before I had to pack my things and check out before setting up my poster at the convention center! can you say STRESS??!). BUT, I am really happy with how my outfit turned out, very professional and sleek!
I decided I wanted to wear this greenish-turquoise statement necklace from Forever21, so I tried to put together pieces that would be simple and work well with the color and piece! (Statement necklace dictating the outfit for the win!)
I decided to wear my really cute gray dress pants from NY&C (finally got to wear them!), along with a simple white tank top from Forever21 covered with a simple black blazer. The blazer was simple enough, with only one button, which I think was really flattering versus a traditional long blazer. It cut well, and fit just perfect at my waist. It was just the right length and cut for my body shape!
I wore my boots under the wide leg of the pants, and it was perfect because they were comfortable and gave me just enough height that I wasn't stepping on the pants (Dress pants tend to be too long on me, but these pants were "Petite" from NY&C but still managed to be a *little* long).
I absolutely loved this lipstick I put on, the shade is really flattering on my skin color, it was from Hikari brand, shade Cabernet, which was the perfect deep shade of plum/pink. It really completed my look!
I wanted to venture outside again and take my photos by Boston Commons, but it was cold, and I was in a rush. Next time!
Anyway, what do you think about this final outfit? Is it good for a presentation? Have you ever based an outfit around one piece that guided your outfit choice?
