Creating Change 2013: Strong looks Sunday edition

This post is part of a series on Creating Change 2013 in Atlanta.

As the conference drew to a close and we bid Atlanta farewell, people packed up their finest fashions and headed home. Sunday is usually the least eventful day of a conference, and Creating Change was no exception. Exhausted from the long weekend, I opted for comfy casual chic, as many other attendees did.

Outfit details

The weather in Atlanta was fairly mild, so this light khaki swing coat was perfect to keep me warm while looking stylish. I thrifted it for a couple bucks on half-off day at one of the shops in my neighborhood. At first, I wasn’t completely sold on this jacket — after all, khaki isn’t really my color — but this classic coat is a perfect transition piece for spring and fall. Love. It.

I really like these burgundy boots, but they wouldn’t stay up. I often have this problem with boots — in order to get the right fit for my foot, the leg of the boot is huge and falls down. It’s really not cute. So, I added holes to the back of these boots and laced them up with some ribbon to keep them in place.

Also, I ran into mistress of ceremonies Kate Clinton in the lobby:
