My Style Challenge: Packing for a NYC Conference

I recently went up to NYC to speak at the Social Media Strategies Summit! I would only be up for two days, so I didn't want to pack a lot, but I knew I would go out and see a friend or two, so I wanted to bring some versatile clothing!

Ok, a neon green skirt isn't versatile. Usually I would recommend neutral colored items that can be reworn without people noticing - one winter I wore the same black pants for probably two weeks at work, true story. However I didn't plan to be seeing the same people, so I figured it would be ok. Thus, this is more of a how to style one piece for day vs. night.

Here is my day look - what I wore to actually speak! Pairing my Diane von Furstenberg neon skirt with a black top from Express, leopard blazer courtesy of H&M, and some kitten heels by Bandelino. My jewelry includes a pearl ring from my mom and turquoise drops from my sister.
Hooray, time to go out and see my beloved Jordana! For this look I paired the DvF skirt with: a white LOFT tank, J. Crew cardigan, shoes courtesy of Payless, my necklace is from Nicole Miller and my bracelet is from Turkey. I still love my ombre red hair, this may be the hair of 2013!!!

Next up... pairing the neon skirt with a non-neutral top!!
