One of my favorite things to do with an outfit is pair two or three things together that you normally wouldn't think would work. Mixing textures is a great way to do that. On Saturday at Go Blog Social (a social media conference in Kansas City), I wore a silk shirt, faux leather jacket, liquid leggings and the ever-classic Converse high tops. It works because they share a simple color palette. These are all things I had packed in my bag but had not thought of wearing together until the night before. Sometimes the best outfits happen while traveling when you have limited items to choose from and end up wearing something you never would have put together if it was all hanging in separate sections of your closet. This is one of my favorite outfits I've ever worn, and it helped me feel confident while in a room of 200 amazing women.
