On Thursday night, I left the IFB Conference and headed right uptown to Lincoln Center for a Styld.by blogger event at Gap with Kendi of Kendi Everyday (one of my favorite blogs!) and Bare Minerals (one of my favorite brands!).

Kendi put together several spring looks for the event -- and as you can see, they each include a pop of color and showcase her classic style.

The graphic blouse under the bright cardigan in the middle is definitely something I could wear to work ... and it would be perfect with jeans for running errands on the weekend.

I love the super simple but polished outfits. Personally, I never would have thought of wearing such a bright pant but after seeing the looks on the left and right, they look so chic!

Not that I would've suspected her to be any other way, but Kendi- you are so super nice and it was great meeting and chatting with you!

Another great part about the event -- Bare Minerals was there giving make-unders, again with their new spring-perfect line.

I watched as one of their makeup artists, Tiffany -- she's at the 34th street store if you're in NYC and she's amazing! -- worked her magic and brought out this girl's natural beauty with just a few simple tricks.
