Bring Back 1996

I was browsing my blog reel today and saw that my outfit I wore last night looked a lot like the Inspiration Monday post over at Two Birds yesterday. You can also head over there to read Megan's story about seeing the Thunder From Down Under on Saturday. Oh yes, we did that. And it was hilariously tacky and awesome. Pirates and gangsters and cowboys oh my. I'm not really sure who is turned on by terrible dance moves and guys pulling thongs down but it wasn't any of us! Go over and check out how everyone else was inspired too!

Last night, while wearing this dress, I saw the Wombats. Pretty much awesome. I haven't seen live music in about a year and a half and this was a GREAT show to break my fast with. They were terrific live and had great energy. You may or may not have heard of them but go check them out. You're welcome. I felt really cool and yet comfortable in this outfit. I think this new "leather" jacket will be making quite a few appearances on the ol blog.

Going to head on over to the grocery store and try to pick up some healthy stuff. I am going through my pins and some recipes in between typing. Can't wait to try some new stuff!




I try new poses and end up looking like a fool. :)

Outfit Details:
Dress, jacket, tights - Target (imagine that!)
Boots - Thrifted
Scarf - H&M (old)


  1. oh, i am glad you had fun at the wombats! wish i could have gone. i love this outfit! i think i have that same jacket from target, or at least a very similar one. and your dress is so cute! target? really? love it!

  2. So this outfit is amazing-I totally have the same dress and I was just staring at it about an hour ago trying to figure out how to make it work for fall.  Thanks for doing my thinking for me lol...and for serious...  The Wombats?!  I didn't know anyone else listened to them or had even heard of them besides me.    I stopped checking Vitamn and ticketmaster and all that jazz since I can't seem to convince any of my friends here to go with me- so I am super jealous!  Your cool-factor just increased x10!  xo  Lori

  3. I've never saw Thunder Down Under but from what I've heard it would do much for me other than give me a chuckle. Glad you girlies had a good time!

    That coat is great- I can't wait to see how else you style it

  4. I know right? I am full on Target and it doesn't even look like it. You can borrow the dress sometime if you want. I'll even wash it first. :)

  5. Same with me! I swear I asked every friend that likes music if they would come. Next time you and I are going for sure! Not to rub it in your face but it was really fun! Wish you could have gone! Glad I'm so much cooler now :)

  6. Oh yeah, it was hilarious for sure. Glad I'm not the only one who wasn't turned on haha!

  7. I am 100% serious, I am in next time they are in town!   :)

    That made me smile. Love! (Is this your Fonz pose?)

  9. Love the bright patterned dress!  What a great coincidence that it worked for Inspiration Monday!

  10. Oh for cute! Love that dress. Now when I hear that song, I'll think of you!

  11. Yeah, it's my "I'm trying to be cool and tough but in reality I'm neither" pose.

  12. It is super comfy too. I wore it like 3 times that week. Don't tell anyone though.
