don't know if it's my age, but what i feel best in for a night out on the town has changed drastically.  during my bar star years, i'd often feel as though i had show skin in order to fit in and look "hot".  of course now, i feel sexiest by wearing something i'm comfortable and confident in.  it took my a long time to recognize that.


challenged myself to style these jeans last friday evening for a concert at the biltmore.  complimenting the coral with classic black, accompanied by gold and aqua accents.  kept things pretty basic, but (hopefully) still interesting.  the best part?  i was covered up and comfy...it was a win win!

many of you probably don't know oberhofer.  i knew little of them myself, only one song 'i could go' that i'd stumbled upon (video at the bottom).  but, youtube has this lovely new feature where if you're listening to a band, a little message in the corner alerts you when and where the band is playing in your town!  so i got some friends together and we enjoyed an intimate $10 oberhofer show at the biltmore.  they were awesome live, their entire 'time capsules II' album is going to be my summer anthem!  the night ended with a bunch of us dancing on stage while the band played an encore and the entire band came out and partied with everyone afterwards.  definitely a night i'll never forget! 


for all you lucky ducks going to coachella, they'll be there and you must go see them!  and for the rest of ya'll, if you like what you hear in the videos below, you should definitely buy their album!



{disclaimer: video above is my own, though i own no rights to the song.  video below is not mine and again, i own no rights to the song.  just go buy the cd!}

  3. I know I should never say this in a blog comment, but you look so skinny! I'm not trying to be complimentary, catty or anything other than neutral, because you are always beautiful as far as I'm concerned, but I noticed it the last time you wore these bright bottoms and in this post its even more pronounced.

    Moving on to more important things - coral pants + turquoise heels = perfect combination. I love.

  14. Ah that pretty jacket again! Every time I see it I'm in love. Great look for a night spent at a concert. In regard to the "party dressing"... I must say it was kind of shocking to see how many girls walk around here on Granville St during the weekend. People say that they show so much more skin in Europe, but I can tell you, not like those Granville party girls ;-) Although I am sure you kept it classy back in the day!

  20. I love this. You look amazing! And yes, it is still interesting :)

    I feel the exact same about dressing up to go out -- used to show waaay too much skin and am so glad to be past that stage. It's so much sexier to have confidence in yourself :)
