Casual

I wear my army green surplus jackets all the time.  So when I happened to stumble on my favorite silhouette in a pale pink color, I was 100% sold.  I love putting a new spin on an old classic, because not only is it comfortable, but it still feels fresh and new at the same time.

Nickel Creek

If you know me personally, then you know I LOVE music.  And if you don’t, well now you know.  I also have a pretty broad taste in music, thanks to my dad’s influence growing up and studying and pursuing music in college.  And while my love for music is broad, there are a handful of bands/musicians that are especially near and dear to my heart.  And one of those such bands is Nickel Creek.  I have been a huge fan of theirs since the late ’90’s when I first fell in love with country and bluegrass.  And when they broke up in 2007 before I had a chance to see them live, I was pretty devastated.  So when they announced they were getting back together this year and starting to tour in May-I knew I absolutely had to see them.  And as luck would have it, the 3rd stop on their Dotted Line tour just happened to be in Salt Lake City.  So J and I scored amazing 3rd row tickets and have been counting down the days to the show.  And I have got to tell you, the musical talent that this band possesses is truly mind-blowing.  It was an absolutely incredible show and I can’t stop smiling today thinking of the magic we saw last night up on that stage.  So if you love bluegrass or appreciate musical talent, then check and see if Nickel Creek is coming to your town.  And if they are, GO SEE THEM!  I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Now on to today’s outfit, which is actually what I wore to the show last night.  Casual, but cool with a fun pop of color.  When I go to a concert or show I always like to wear a cute tank/cami with a jacket so that I can take the jacket off if I get warm, or leave it on if the venue is cool.  In my book, it’s always good to be prepared for either possibility.  I am also a high heel kind of girl, but always make sure to wear my comfy heels so that my feet can be sure to last through a night of dancing…

Reverse It

So I have a little secret.  Remember yesterday’s post and the super cute nude cami I was wearing underneath my red blazer?  Well guess what?  The purple cami in today’s post is the exact. same. shirt-just reversed!  I can’t even tell you how thrilled I was when I stumbled on this amazing find at Express a few weeks ago.  Not only is the styling of this particular cami perfect for a multitude of outfits, but every cami is essentially two shirts in one.  Two for the price of one??  Pretty tough to beat that kind of a deal, don’t you think?  So run, don’t walk to your local Express (or use the link below) to pick up your own.  This is definitely a must-have item in every gal’s closet this spring!  I know the mint/ivory combo is next on my wishlist.  Which one is your favorite?
