OOTN: "I change shapes..."

Last night, I saw Miike Snow in concert. For those of you who've never heard them, it's actually the band's name, not a guy who can't spell his name correctly (which is what I initially thought!). They have a unique techno/dance/pop/rock sound that I love. Lemme tell you-- amazing performance! I highly recommend seeing them in person, as they put on a great show.

Here's what I wore, which isn't that "new" or innovative for me... but hey, sometimes I like the looks I've created so much that I only tweak them a little. This was sort of one of those times.

(I realize my arms are up in each of these pics. What gives, me?!)
Tank: Old Navy ribbed tank
Skirt: F21 striped skirt
Belt: ??
Necklace: Baker's multi-chain necklace
Shoes: Go Jane cheapie booties

I thought it was an appropriate look for a concert, since it's a little edgy but still keeps my personality. Plus, these are comfortable shoes. Seriously. Who would have thought these $20ish shoes would be more comfortable than some of my $300-plus shoes? Crazy.

Also, I have fun news: I'm going to DC at the end of July to meet some fellow bloggers and some other gals I've come to know over time with this blog! I'll have more deets soon, so stay tuned for that. Thank you to all you fabulous readers/bloggers who have become my friends over the past year. This blog has opened doors for me I never imagined would be opened, and most of those doors aren't even related to fashion! It means the world to me that some of you have reached out and told me your story and have become my friends. Ya'll are the best, ya hear? :)

Also also (I know, I'm a little of everywhere today)-- even though I recently re-did my blog header, I should be unveiling a new blog look and header soon. I like what I made, but it's just not right. I've enlisted the assistance of a wonderful fellow-blogger, but more on that when the time comes nearer. Be excited!  :)

  9. This looks great for a concert. I agree that the shoes add a good edge to the outfit.
    I have a pair of shoes from Target that cost me $12. They are easily the most comfortable pairs of shoes I've ever had. I had to buy a back-up pair just because I loved them so much.
    Your headed to my neck of the woods! I'm really new to this blogging thing, so I hope to have the same opportunities to make lots of new friends out there in the blogosphere.
    Hope you have lots of fun in DC!

  10. haha! okay, I LOVE that skirt. Everytime you wear it, I want to run out and find one just like it! They had a black and white striped bandage skirt at Express a few months ago, but I could never find my size :(
