Friday Fave: Fresh Produce Clothing Helps Me Break Out of Black at Type A Parent Conference (w. giveaway)

June 17, 2011 70 Comments »

A couple of weeks ago I was in wardrobe distress after realizing that most of my conference clothes were all the same— some version of a black dress.  Soon after, Fresh Produce reached out to me having recognized my fashion emergency and I couldn’t have been more thrilled with their offer to help me break away from black and brighten me up as my clothing sponsor for next week’s Type A Parent Conference!

As my conference sponsor, I’ll be clad in Fresh Produce throughout the conference!  For 5 days I’ll be sporting looks that need to go from day to night while being professional enough for my panel (Collaboration That Pays, Thursday 2-2:45 pm) and fun for patio parties and dinners out yet comfortable enough for a Just Dance 2 battle. 

The popsicle colored hues are a huge departure from my classic conference wardrobe but I’m ready for the change and excited about what I’ll be wearing!  Take a look at the colorful dresses that will be part of my conference looks!

Pintuck Tank Dress in Thistle ($59)
Rio Malibu Maxie Dress in South Beach Blue ($89)
Santa Barbara Cardigan in Tropical Punch ($62)
Wrap Me Up Dress in Tropical Punch ($89)
Cafe Wrap Dress in Sunrise ($69)
Basic Leggings in Oyster ($29)
I can’t wait to wear be colorful in dresses of light lilac purple, deep blue, bright pink, and sunny orange!  The Bali Shine-On Shirt Dress and leggings are the only outfit not in a bright color but will make for a perfect travel outfit on Sunday when I’m ready to head home after days of networking and learning and evenings with dinners and parties.
GIVEAWAY: My mother taught me that those who care share and I’m thrilled be giving away a Pintuck Dress in your choice of color courtesy of Fresh Produce!

    I love the convertible skirt/dress so much (I’m buying no matter whether I win or not): My first thought was to order in black but in solidarity with your branching out I’m going for white! I’ll wear it on a date night with my husband or a family BBQ this summer. (The strapless style will make nursing the baby easy and it looks like it will accommodate me whether I’m still packing the baby weight or gradually lose a few lbs this summer).

    I love the Impromptu dress.

    My whole wardrobe is black and grey… I should probably think about livening it up a little too!

    My favorite outfit from their 2011 collection is the Monterey shirt (white)-( with the What-it-seams skirt (also in white)-( I like how they paired it with the orange cami in the pic for their 2011 collection.

    I think this one’s my favorite – Casual enough to wear out with friends, dressy enough to wear to a nice restaurant.

    I am SO with you on the need to break out of an all black wardrobe! I love the Sunshine Dress ( because it looks like it would be so easy to dress it up/down — perfect for a mama who sometimes needs to go straight from the park to a meeting!

    If I won this fab giveaway I’d wear my new dress to the post-wedding brunch we’re attending at the end of July. I’m all set with dresses for the rehearsal dinner and wedding but am missing something cute for the brunch!
