This past weekend I had the pleasure of heading up to the Columbia campus on the Upper West Side for the HerCampus National Conference. Carly, Mackenzie, Hallie, and I spoke on a panel on Day 1 of the two day conference and it was actually a lot of fun. Sometimes panels can be a bit intimidating, but it was so easy being up there with three of my good friends! We got to meet a ton of amazing girls afterwards and it was so nice chatting and answering questions. (Side note: If you were at our panel and didn’t get a chance to ask your question due to time restraints, feel free to shoot me an email!)

I’d never been up to Columbia before and the campus is gorgeous! It has that same historic charm that my college campus had and I must say that I felt a bit of nostalgia as I was walking through the quad. I’m sure I’ll be re-visiting at some point, if only for the perfect backdrops for outfit photos.

This outfit is so cute! Columbia’s campus is gorgeous and I had feelings of nostalgia as well…even thought graduation was only a few months ago, haha! It was wonderful meeting you at the HerConference Panel!

Love your shoes and especially your specs! I’d loose them forever in a heartbeat, but let me drop a pair of cheapies into the water off of a boat and a diver would come right back up with them! lol

First, I absolutely love your outfit! Second, I think it would be kind of cool if you created like a Q&A similar to what Hallie did today so that your readers can get a better idea of how your blog has become so successful!

Thank you! I loved Hallie’s post about the conference.. Glad to hear you did, too! That’s not typically the type of content I feature on Bows & Sequins, but great to know that you’d be interested. If you have any specific questions, feel free to post them here or shoot me and email and I can try to work them into a post! :)

I love this dress! I’ve been eyeing a really similar Club Monaco one that I can’t wait to get my hands on. And those shoes are amazing, too!

It is too neat that I stumbled onto your blog. I literally just found it randomly as I was browsing style blogs. I, too, was at the Her Campus conference at Columbia as a Campus Correspondent for my alma mater, Oswego State! I didn’t actually attend your panel. I must have been at another one and missed yours. Which panel did you speak at? I’m obsessed with your earrings in this, by the way, and couldn’t find your tag of where they’re from. You have such great style! HCXO! :)
