I’m Going TEAL This Week!

Later this week, as part of my Advocacy Leader duties with the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance, I’ll be attending the 16th Annual Ovarian Cancer National Conference.  I’ll be learning what’s new in the world of ovarian cancer, getting tips for living with cancer and connecting with my fellow survivors, as well as researchers, advocates and health professionals.  The cool thing about getting together with other survivors is that we ALL rock teal (our cancer color) the entire time.

I did a short training session back in March, so I only needed a few items.  This time, I’m going ALL the way out!  Here’s some of what I’m taking with me:

Due to an unfortunate incident with TSA, my favorite piece of luggage was ruined on my trip to Los Angeles a few weeks back.  That gave me an excuse to get an entire new set!  The set includes a 29″ upright, a 25″ upright, a 21″ carry-on and 2 smaller pieces.  I’ve used all of the pieces since then and it certainly takes a beating.  I absolutely love it.  The set retails for $300 and here are the purchase details.

Because I will also be doing round on Capitol Hill, I’ll need a good hat to walk from building to building in, but can pack away easily once inside.  This Pack a Hat combo is PERFECT for this.  I have it in the teal color (bottom left).  Its a great little sun hat with a 4 and a half inch brim, but has a 50+ UVF rating.  It retails for $25 and you can buy it here.

I also have this cute v-neck top for one of the conference days.  It’s made of chiffon is from the ELLE™ Urban Traveler Collection at Kohls.  It retails for $36, but is on sale now!

For one of the night time activities, I’m going with a goddess themes and will be wearing this fun floral halo that lights up!  Of course, there will be pictures!  It retails for $19.99 and can be found at your local Ulta, Claire’s, and Icing stores.

And, I also have this cutesy little halter dress.  I’ll wear it for one of the other night time events.  It was supposed to be for my Mexico trip, then I realized that it was teal and decided to take it to the conference.  It’s spandex and polyester AND machine washable!  It has a cute halter neckline, a keyhole in the back and a built in bra.  It retails for $79.50 at Macy’s, but is on sale now for $59.99.

This is only some of what I’m taking.  I’ve loaded up on teal!  And I’ve gotten some cool gifts recently, including a nice scarf from a really good friend and a bracelet from a neighbor.  Be sure to follow me on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook to see all the pics!
