So, I’m in Austin until Wednesday this week. I’m here with Leo who’s attending and speaking at a conference, and hosting a networking event Tuesday night. I’ll have time on my own part of Tuesday and Wednesday, but today I’m listening in on a conference for HPC start-ups and entrepreneurs.
My challenge then, for the day, was to:
- Not wear something that would obviously embarrass my husband (like clogs or harem pants)
- Wear something I would be comfortable in from 4 in the morning, during our drive to Austin, and potentially all day (I didn’t know when we’d be able to check in to the hotel)
- Look mildly “professional” and appropriate, as I’d be among high-tech entrepreneurs all day.
Turns out a hoodie and jeans is entirely appropriate among high-tech entrepreneurs (men and women alike), which I knew already, but I personally wanted to dress exactly as I’d dress if I were attending a conference like this as an entrepreneur. Which, interestingly I am, although in a completely different industry.
I am completely happy and comfortable with my chosen outfit, I made it through 4.5 hours in the car unscathed, and even though they did have our room ready to check into when we arrived in Austin, I decided not to change anything. I did take a quick picture though and I already can’t wait to fall into that bed…
Anyway, I was trying to get some non-outfit posts ready for the week, and I’m still working on that, but I also thought it would be interesting to share what I’m wearing here, given that I’m in a completely different environment than I’m used to.
Happy Monday!! (If you don’t follow me yet on Instagram, I posted a sneak peek of a photoshoot I did last week. I’ll share those all the photos here also, but always preview them on Instagram – hint, it’s a nearly all Everlane outfit + these jeans)
