SBOC 2013 Recap

Over this weekend I went down to Sunny Miami, FL for the Style Bloggers of Color (SBOC) 2013 Conference. I had an absolute blast. I met some awesome up - and - coming bloggers, as well as popular bloggers of color from around the country. I gained a wealth of information on how to better serve you (my readers) in taking my blog to the next level with better content, photos, and reaching out to you through multiple social media outlets.

Here is a photo recap of my weekend!

Being that the drive to Miami is 8 hours, I wanted to be cute but casual. Here's what I came up with.

:: Notorious BIG Tee: Urban Outfitters::
:: Distressed Jeans: Forever 21::

Day 1 was full of several break out sessions from really awesome bloggers of color like Ria Michelle, Natalie from "The Tiny Closet," and Miami's own Anais from "Down To Stars."
