What I Wore to a Women’s Conference and More

April 5, 2024

Happy Friday! It’s time for me to share my daily outfits from the past seven days. Three of those days were spent at a women’s conference, but I also got dressed for Easter, a day at home, a casual outing and appointments.

How This Works

These are my real life outfits from my own closet. Many of these things are available, but some may not be. When I can locate one quickly I’ll share substitutes and/or more economical options. But if I don’t provide one and you’d like for me to, just ask. All available items are linked in the captions of the photos. Even if they don’t look like links (sometimes they don’t highlight for some reason), they generally are. So just click through if you’re interested.

How I Dressed for a Day at Home Last Friday

Last Friday I spent the day completely at home, mostly working in my home office, but also reading in front of the fire. I’m guessing the temperatures were in the low 60s that day, but I mostly stayed inside.

purple linen sweater // white linen pants // sandals // earrings

I was aching to wear spring clothes. I’ve learned the secret is to top lightweight pants with a linen or cotton sweater. On this day I wore my Eileen Fisher white linen lantern pants with a raglan-sleeve linen sweater from Poetry. I actually even wore linen sandals! I loved wearing this outfit, and look forward to wearing it frequently soon.

By the way, Poetry is a British brand I’ve been following for some time now, but only placed my first order a month or so ago. They don’t work with any affiliate programs, from what I can tell, so I have not ordered from them before for that reason. But I just couldn’t resist any longer. Sure enough this raglan-sleeve linen sweater is swoon-worthy. Poetry has a very soft, earthy style style aesthetic that is really a perfect match for my “classic, effortless, elevated” style angles.

What I Wore Saturday

Saturday was a beautiful, breezy day. Maybe a little balmy even. Mostly I was at home doing little things around the house. But in the afternoon I did get out to grab a frozen yogurt and sit at a local park to read a book. The spring day was too pretty to stay in the house all day.

So I wore my green linen pants from J.Jill with this fun black and white tee I’d picked up at Anthropologie recently. I had realized that I didn’t have enough interesting but simple tee in my wardrobe for spring, so I got this tee as well as this v-neck one. The tee I’m wearing also comes in other prints and solids. It runs true to size for a fairly oversized look, especially around the neck and hemline. I thought the outfit looked nice bookended with black sandals (similar sandals) and worn with my denim jacket.

How I Dressed for Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday was mostly sunny, windy and cool. I wanted to dress up a little even though our home church is very casual. Plus, James and I had lunch reservations at a fairly nice restaurant. So I wore my new Diane von Furstenberg silk jersey wrap dress. I’ve admired DVF dresses for as long as I can remember. So I got this one for my 60th birthday to wear on our upcoming Alaska cruise. But when I saw they were 25% off recently I purchased this blue bird of paradise and ivory version.

Because it was a little chilly, I topped the silk jersey dress with my ivory linen blazer (similar white blazer for less). Don’t bother to tell me how much this outfit costs; I’m well aware it’s exorbitant. But I’ve had the blazer for several years now and I fully intend to wear this timeless wrap dress for years to come, too. At this point in life, I don’t need a closet full of anything. I just need a few nicer pieces I can wear over and over.

What I Wore to the Women’s Conference on Monday

Monday was set to be our one pretty weather day for the women’s conference I was attending in northern Kentucky. So I wore ankle length jeans from my closet (similar option here) with a new silk blouse from Alice & Olivia. (I’d seen this blouse over and over on Instagram and thought it would work beautifully with my color palette. But it’s very pricey. So I used a boat load of Nordy notes to get it.)

I topped the blouse with my camel blazer, which I wore over it all day. I always wear a jacket or cardigan when I attend conferences because air conditioning inevitably makes them chilly. I completed the look with cognac colored accessories. Honestly, any chance I get to wear cognac these days, I do it. This color is just the latest trend in accessories and it’s a personal favorite of mine anyhow. So I’m taking advantage of it!

What I Wore to the Conference Tuesday

Tuesday we awoke to extreme rain showers and potential storms. But I knew we’d be inside all day once we arrived at the conference. I just needed to wear good shoes for getting from the car to the building and vice versa. I opted to wear my white leather Paul Green sneakers with a jeans outfit.

button-up shirt // jacket (more economical option) // jeans // belt // similar sneakers // purse// bracelet // necklace // earrings

I felt pretty and comfortable in my brightly colored Liberty print button-up shirt topped with an army green jacket. My Ayr jeans are extremely comfortable and very modern. I tucked the shirt and belted because I knew I’d be wearing the jacket most of the time anyhow.

How I Dressed for the Final Day of the Conference

By Wednesday comfort was the key. We were leaving every morning at 7:15 to get to the conference and arriving home late, so I was getting tired.

denim jacket // tee (no longer available) // pants // sneakers // purse // necklace // earrings

I opted for my camel Southampton pants with a graphic tee and a long denim jacket worn with sneakers. Most women were dressed extremely casually for the three-day women’s conference, so I felt really good in this mixed-vibe outfit. It was comfortable, but also looked interesting and pulled together.

What I Wore for Appointments on Thursday

I would have loved to have stayed in pajamas all day Thursday. Ha! But I had a couple of appointments on the books that required me to get going and get dressed. That’s probably a good thing. It was extremely cold and wet, so I kept my outfit simple and warm.

Jenni Kayne fisherman sweater (40% off with code SPRING40 – final sale) //similar trench // jeans // sneakers (c/o) // tote (no longer available)

I wore my Talbots straight leg relaxed fit jeans with my Jenni Kayne fisherman sweater (40% off with code SPRING40 – final sale) and a tissue tee underneath. I completed the outfit with my ME+EM Retro sneakers (c/o) and minimal jewelry. When it was time to head out into scattered rain showers, I added my trench coat.

Thanks so much for dropping in today. Hopefully you got a little style inspiration to create fun spring outfits from your own closet. Have a beautiful spring day!

Blessed for My Day

In my daily Bible reading this morning I was challenged with Luke 8:16. This simple verse reminded me that we have truly good news to share with the world around us. So why do we so often think that we should be quiet about it? I guess we get a little embarrassed to talk about such personal things. Or maybe we fear rejection if we try to share the gospel with friends or family. And then again, maybe we’ve bought into the lie that one’s faith is a personal matter and shouldn’t be discussed.

The truth is we have truly good news, the best news, to share. And the people around us desperately need to hear that Jesus came, lived, died and rose again so that they could have a thriving and eternal relationship with their Creator. There is no better news to share. So let’s watch for opportunities to share this good news. And let’s not all those opportunities to pass us by. We have good news to share! With whom will you share it today?

“Now no one after lighting a lamp covers it over with a container, or puts it under a bed; but he puts it on a lampstand, so that those who come in may see the light.” ~ Luke 8:16

xoxo, Kay

  1. Very pretty all week. Did you present at the conference? I was looking at the conference info for next year.

  2. I just love the wrap dress and the linen jacket combo. You inspired me to try this look with a Boden dress and Nic and Zoe linen jacket I already have. I look forward to seeing the silk blouse you bought in the future without a jacket, maybe styled several different ways.

  3. Hi Kay so pleased your Conference went well . All of your outfits look so good . Loved the DVF Dress + Linen Blazer absolutely a Classic and so pleased you got yourself something gorgeous for such an important milestone, and yes her dresses are just gorgeous . So pleased you had a lovely week . Loved the Devotional too❤️

  4. All of your outfits looked nice on you. I especially liked the linen sweater from Poetry. Loved the color. Did you get an 8 or 10 in this? Enjoyed the BFMD.

  5. Love all the love looks! Going to try and copy the green pants and Anthropologie top . Did you find the top true to size?

  6. Can I say I’ve been loving British brands lately? I use many of the Elemis products, but when I saw Poetry is from Britain I fell in love with many of their items. They look fantastic are worthy of a second look and purchase! Definitely fits in with my aesthetic of casual effortless and clean simple lines!

  7. Hi Kay. I always enjoy these posts but particularly liked this one because there was quite a lot of pattern! i know you love neutrals and you always look so stylish in them but I am a pattern girl so I get excited when I see them in your posts, lol. You look fab in all the outfits and my favourites are the DVF dress and the Alice & Olivia blouse.

  8. Kay, you seemed a little defensive about the cost of your Easter outfit. Wear what you want but realize that when you do put it out there, people may comment. The cost of your Easter outfit is probably more than many people spend in an entire year on clothing. If you are adverse to getting these types of comments, you could choose to buy very expensive outfits to wear and not share them. I think many are still probably surprised by how much the cost of the your outfits has increased as you have become a successful influencer.

    1. Hi Ali. I didn’t mean to be defensive at all. I was actually kind of joking. I love the dress and the blazer and they were both special purchases. So I make no apologies. I was just saying that I was aware of the cost, which was quite high even for me.
