Feeling Inspired!

Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 - gifted from parents (similar)

I seriously took these pictures in the two minutes I had before I had to make a fast dash out the door for the last day of the Texas Style Council Conference (TxSCC).  You can tell that I'm such a rooftop photographer as I'm not used to having to deal with traffic.  What's this, a car?!  HOW. DARE.YOU.  :)

As for the conference, it was a wonderfully inspiring day of learning from other bloggers through a variety of different panels.  It was so amazing to see bloggers who have been blogging for over 5 years and hear their tips on how to stay fresh and sometimes tough it out in the blog world.  Even more so, it was also comforting to know that I wasn't the only one without a media kit (yet!) and that I'm not the only one wondering what exactly went into a media kit in the first place!  The conference was absolutely invigorating (even though I'm currently exhausted) and I am filled with so many new ideas I can't wait to try out on my blog.  For starters, I'm incorporating the "rule of thirds" with these pictures.  Being off-center is actually kinda awesome.

Yay for the rule of thirds and learning about media kits! Your outfit is adorable!

Aubrey said... [Reply]

lol... I swear I just did that sort of belt thing last night. Except, I was wearing 3 instead of 2 and with a high waisted full skirt. =)

You look so FIT! And your waist is tiny, girl!

dazediva said... [Reply]

Great look :)
I don't think I could pull it off .. 1st cos I don't wear full sleeves (I feel like a sack of potatoes in them) and 2nd cos its a bit too floral for me .. the outfit looks fab on you .. I really like the sandals - the heel in particular and the LV bag :)

Aggie said... [Reply]

The conference sounds like a blast! So gutted that it would have cost waaaaay too much to get there from New Zealand...!

I do so love your little blog! What I find interesting is that although your a pocket rocket, you don't look short in your photos?! And double belts...YES! Love!

I am glad that you had a great time at the conference. It sounds very interesting. How do you feel about taking blog photos outside when people are driving by? I always run when I see people :)

Kileen said... [Reply]

I don't mind it so much. I just kinda ignore them and keep on taking
pictures. :)

I am Khatu said... [Reply]

I too double belted something last week. It's a great way to give new life to old things. Great minds think alike! Do share more about putting together a media kit!

Kileen said... [Reply]

oh yes, and i noticed that in your picture with Jean (PetiteAsianGirl) it
looked like you were wearing two belts too! :)

Curls and Pearls said... [Reply]

LOL the car! Did you take this by yourself with tripod and remote? you look fabulous Kileen and I hope you weren't too much of a distraction to the driver ;)

Sounds like such an informative conference!

Kileen said... [Reply]

haha, yes, it was me and the tripod. looking at these pictures i'm kinda
surprised that car didn't honk at me or anything! nice austin drivers. :)

Lindsay Bobindsay said... [Reply]

OMG I love the two belts! And that asymmetrical neckline ruffle is super adorable. From now on if I buy one skinny belt I'm getting another in a different color.

Natalie said... [Reply]

That outfit looks straight off of a magazine. Totally gorgeous.

Kileen said... [Reply]

oh yes, i wear skinny belt so often that i almost always will purchase
multiple colors if i see them!

Natalie said... [Reply]

Oh, and if it makes you feel better, I got my media kit all prepped for BlogHer and everything and no one wanted it. People like talkeing to you face to face.

Sandy a la Mode said... [Reply]

love love love your dress sweetie!! and the belt and shoes are a great pop of color!!

Featherfactor said... [Reply]

Lovely photographs! The dress fits you perfectly :)

Rinny said... [Reply]

I love the dress and double belts! That's actually a great tip about the rule of thirds - it really does make photos look better. I'll have to keep that in mind for the future, thanks!

Justine @ Just Better Together said... [Reply]

I like this rules of thirds. btw, can you explain what a media kit is later? I've been asked and I have no idea what is inside.

Yes, once I get my media kit together I'll try and explain what I know. :)

Nelah said... [Reply]

Shoes and double belts are soooo lovely. I didn't realize you take all pics by yourself but every shot looks great. I haven't done self-photography in public just yet.

Jessy said... [Reply]

Look at you and your tiny waist ; ) omg did you set up your tripod on the street?!? You're a brave soul..

Kileen said... [Reply]

lol, i did. i was a little scared but the entire photo session was probably
all of 3 minutes. max.

Oh wow! You have great legs, totally loving that dress on you, so cute the print! Actually like the cars on the back they kind of match your shoes, don't you think? ... Wish I lived near texas so I could've dropped by, maybe other time! Wish you a lovely week!
