What a Super Kawaii Mama wears to a conference!

Hi BusiChics! How was your weekend? I hope that yours was a good one! I spent Saturday at the Nuffnang Blogopolis, a conference for bloggers! As someone in a profession where conference dresscodes range from “business casual” to “corporate wear”, it was refreshing to see attendees free to express a wide range individual style. Inspired, I photographed some attendees whose conference-wear I’ll share everyday this week with some tips to inspire those of us in more conservative work dresscodes.

We start the proceedings with glam mama blogger, Candice de Ville of Super Kawaii Mama.

Candice (aka Super Kawaii Mama)

Candice is a glam-mama blogger with two small children and shows how to pull together a classic conference ensemble that is a balance of polish and personalised flair. Immaculate grooming sets the tone and is a great calling card for Candice’s work in glamour hair and make up. In fact, regular readers of BusiChic may be interested to know that Candice was responsible for directing the hair and make-up at the Mission 65 Fashion fundraiser event for Prahran Mission, earlier this year!

Details that show Candice is the personification of her blog, Super Kawaii Mama

Black and white is a fail-safe palette, Candice adds interest by way of fab hair, lippy, manicure, leopard print bag and the horse-print blouse by Australian designer, Sarah Phillps. I also like the idea of a maxi skirt, which is optimal comfort for sitting down without sacrificing on style. Also as conference venues tend to fluctuate in temperature; the oversized cardigan is a great addition that is both functional, comfortable and stylish; as too are the waterproof Swarovski-studded wedges by Melissa! So many great details to inspire, thanks Candice!

Candice was also one of the speakers at Blogopolis. For notes from her session, The State of the Australian Blogosphere, I recommend checking out the summaries blogged in real-time by Bree, The Blog Stylist.
