Flat out Blissdom.

Today I'm heading off to my first blog conference

What is a blogging conference you ask? 

I'll get to that.

First, these shoes need to be introduced.
































I picked these up at Old Navy recently. Very recently in fact. I needed some cute and non-round toe-d flats. 

I tried some on at Gap

But the toe part was just sooooo looooong. I mean look at it?! Elf shoes. 

Anyway, the Old Navy pair was half the price of the Gap shoes and much more what I was looking for.

Thats all about shoes for now.

This blog conference is in Nashville, Tennessee and called Blissdom. This will be my first visit to Nashville! I'm looking really forward to networking, meeting other bloggers I'm familiar with AND new-to-me bloggers, and learning. There will be different sessions on various subjects all having to do with blogging. Some on the sessions are on photography, writing, business and life development.

Since I'm only a year into this blogging gig, I thought now was as good as a time as ever to try out a blog conference and see what I learn. 

Wish me luck!

  5. Good luck and have fun Kate. Nashville is amazing, we went there last year and had a blast! I am a blogging teacher who's also into hair and style ;) I recently went to a technology conference for teachers and learned so much. Take some risks and have fun!

  15. Have so much fun here in Nashville! Its such a great town for young people :) Fun places to go are Broadway street to do a little honkey tonking, and also there are some great restaurants in "The Gulch" right above broadway on 12th South. My personal favorite is Virago, but Whiskey Kitchen is fun too. I hope you like our little town...its a great place to live, and visit.

  20. Welcome to Nashville! I've been reading your blog for several months now and trying out new hairstyles. It's kind of exciting to know that one of my favorite bloggers is coming to town. I didn't even know we were having a blog convention.

  22. Awesome! Nashville is great-I've lived here almost my whole life. The others have made some great dining suggestions, and I would like to add the Loveless Cafe. I prefer it for breakfast, but that might be hard for you to swing.

  26. First let me say that I am so excited for you and second I'm also jealous :) I lived in Nashville and LOVED IT!! The only reason I left was because I married the love of my life and moved to South GA (drastic change from the busy life of Nashville). If you venture out to downtown you should try to go to the West End & Hillsboro Village. They have the cutest little shops that I bet you would love! Also there is a cute coffee shop I think it was named "Fido's" it was such a cute hangout and I spent many hours there studying while in college. Also in that area is the Pancake Pantry...if you've never been before it's delicious! And cheap too!
    I could go on and on but I hope you have a great time!! Take lots of pictures and say hello to the city I love for me :)

  32. Have fun! I have to say, although I don't shop often at Old Navy (never seem to have much luck there) those shoes look really cute. You are totally right about the other ones being too long in the toes! LOL.

  35. Hi Kate!
    I have followed your blog for awhile and have never commented but I have to share this story with you!

    I live in MN and was watching my local news (Kare 11 in Mpls/St. Paul)this morning. They did a little story on Pinterest and the anchors each chose a tip, recipe or hairstyle to try on the air. One of them chose a popular hairstyle on Pinterest and guess whose hairstyle it was? That's right - yours! They showed the pin on Pinterest on the screen and then the anchor practiced on a mannequin. :)

    So, just wanted to let you know that you (well, the back of your head) were on tv in MN this morning!

    Have a great weekend!!

  43. I live in Greeneville, TN...about 3 1/2 hours east of Nashville...love this part of the country. Hope your conference was fun and educational...not that you need educated on blogging...yours is still my fave! I recently picked up some awesome coral flats at Old Navy...thought of since you were the one who "introduced" me to coral. I live not far from the outlets in Pigeon Forge and was there this weekend. I got a coral and white top from Banana Republic too...oh, and another coral top, and I'm going back for a coral and gold necklace I wanted but passed up. :]

  48. Ahhh, I love the shoes! I've been looking for some like those. Do you know if they have them in different colors? I searched for them on oldnavy.com and didn't find them, so I hope they have some in my store in Houston, Texas. Thanks for the lead!
