Fashionable Friday Favorites


What’s not to love about the national ESA meeting, and this year it is double the size because it is being held in conjunction with ICE (International Congress of Entomology).  

Among the many presentations, exhibitors, and absolutely brilliant minds that I get to hear from, there is also all the “bug stuff”.  I can’t leave an ESA meeting it out buying insect related that will take up space on a shelf or on a wall.  Along with all the entomologically related stuff I have, it’s great to see everyone else’s style (inevitably better than mine!)  So here are my favorites this week, ento-fashionable!

My head is just buzzing with all the info I picked up this week and I am so glad I took lots of notes so I can remember most of it.  Can’t waituntil next year (in Denver) and for now, stay entomologically awesome!
