A quick post of the outfit I wore to Bluesfest last week. Sorry it’s all wonky plus missing a clear shot of the top. I’ve been dying to wear this top since I got it in San Fran in February. But nothing seemed to pair quite right with it, that was until I found this skirt. The combination of the soft drape and looseness of the top with the uber tightness of the skirt balanced the look.

I’m so excited that I got to see Dragonette perform. Their show was amazing, such a good performance. I will absolutely make a point to see them again. They performed some of my favorite songs including, “Easy” and “I get around”. I’ve had these songs on repeat all week. I love that I’m seeing more live music this year. It’s such a great experience to hear musicians live, I always feel like the music and the happiness of the crowd is infectious.


I’m already on the prowl for new festival/rocker worthy garb! As an update to this earlier post I did actually find some great shawl patterns online. I guess I was only missing the word “groovy” in my search because once I searched groovy shawl patterns I found a site dedicated to 60-70’s patterns.

Peace out.

Toured St. Brigid’s Centre for the Arts this weekend. My talented girlfriend is the arts director! The Church is  deconsecrated now and is an amazing spot for live events and social gatherings.

The weather was beautiful so decided tofinally try out my new high-waisted shots. I’ve been admiring high waisted shorts and pants since last year when I was in NYC for my B-day and spotted more than a few ladies rocking the look. Since then it’s been nearly impossible for me to find a pair of jeans or shorts that were high waisted, but I lucked out this weekend at Forever 21. I swear that place kills me. 99% of everything I try on looks horrible on me, wrong fabric, wrong lining, horrible drape…. but then I find that one thing that I love (and for 12.98 no less) that makes all the fruitless hunting worthwhile. The top was a previous find as well for 17.98, sheesh 🙂

If I was to wear this again I’d make the style a little more pin-up for a night out. Heels instead of wedges, curls instead of straight hair but keep the red lip.
