I'm so excited that Blissdom is coming in a few weeks! In case you didn't know I'll be heading to Blissdom at Opryland again this year. Even if you aren't heading to Blissdom you can still give your input on my outfits for this year just skip to the bottom.
Last year I was a Blissdom newbie and had no idea what to bring or wear. WHAT DO I WEAR TO BLISSDOM?! I didn't want to be over-dresssed or under-dressed. Was I was gonna be too hot, or too cold? What should I bring?! So this year I decided to use everyone's favorite new sites Pinterest and Polyvore and come up with some cute outfits out of what clothing that I already own. I realized that this was also a fun way to keep a visual packing list of what I'm bringing and make sure that I don't forget anything. But I could also help out some other Blissdom newbies or anyone else needing some outfit help this year.
So what are some of my tips on what to wear to Blissdom?
Basics- Basics like tee shirts, tanks and long sleeve tops are great especially since most likely you will be layering your outfit.
Layers- Don't you hat how it can seem like it's cold in a room one second then two seconds later the room becomes full of people and you're dying from heat exhaustion. So layers will save the day! Plus cardigan layers make it easy to bring a few basic items and add versatility to any outfit.
Jeans or leggings- Think comfy but they also can be dressed up easily. Almost everyone there wears jeans or leggings. (See Dressy Casual Outfit if you need help deciding what wash of jeans to bring)
Comfy shoes- While I enjoy wearing heels, I'm a bit of a baby and can't stand to wear heels for more than a few hours. But with all the walking that you have to do around Opryland you will quickly realize that heels are better being held in your hands than on your feet (true story). Plus this is not the best time to try new shoes. I made that mistake last year. I bought a new pair of shoes and after about 15 mins my feet we killing me and I realized what a terrible idea brand new shoes at Blissdom can be - terrible!
Accessories- They are the perfect way to dress up any outfit. You can use a scarf to keep warm or add some pop to your outfit. A fun accessory can always add to any outfit and can make classic style clothing look stylish. Think earrings, necklaces, bracelets and other fun accessories! Plus most of us secretly want to be the person that everyone else wants to steal their wardrobe because they look so put together and accessorized.
Dressy Casual Outfit- This is for the Thursday Night Official Kick-Off Reception. Most ladies are wearing dark wash jeans, leggings, sweater dresses, dressy tops. Think of what you might wear for a dressy Girls Night Out back at home. Plus wearing something cute but a little more comfortable will be easier for if you end up going to the Subagatory screening party after so that you don't have to run back to your room to change. (Side note-I really Subagatory and am kinda excited about the screening!!)
That cute dress you never wear- We all have that dress that we wore one time to a wedding or only on date night and wish that we had more chances to wear it. Blissdom's Friday Girls Night Out is the PERFECT chance to wear that dress!
Pajamas- On Saturday Night there is a Girls Night In "Hang" where you can be lazy and just lounge around in your PJs with all the new friends that you've made at Blissdom. So don't bring those pajama pants that you wouldn't be caught dead in.. ok? You can even wear your comfy lounge pants or sweatpants, just remember that there will be hundreds of other people there so just keep that in mind.
