MCLV Style: Black & White Plaid for IFBCON

I spent the last week in New York in order to attend the twice-annual fashion blogger conference hosted by IFB – Otherwise known as IFBCON {I also attended in September 2012 if this sounds familiar!}. This will the first of a few posts on this as I’m beyond excited to share the details of my trip with you. From the inspirational women and icons that I met to the fabulous clothes and fun that only New York City can deliver.

So stay tuned!

In addition to breaking out my brights, it’s prints & patterns that I’m most looking forward to for Spring. Mixing in some fun prints {like this top} with my Winter layers is a good way to ease into Spring dressing. This beautiful Kate Spade bag doesn’t hurt either! 🙂

What’s your layering secret for Winter dressing as the weather starts to warm up and we head towards Spring?

*Note: For those of you with sailboat confusion these pictures were shot in San Francisco prior to my trip to NYC once I had chosen my look for the conference. 🙂
