So, today I decided to do a little throwback, casual thing with my outfit. When I was a bit younger, I used to wear band tee shirts all the time. Sometimes I would dress it up with a cardigan or something, but I was all about keeping it casual. I recently got this tee shirt at a Passion Pit concert I went to with my favorite friend, Molly. (If you have never heard of this band, I would definitely suggest you check them out. They are super fun!)
Now, Molly and I have been best friends for about fifteen years. Seriously. We were in the fourth grade when we first met. We used to ride the bus together and I'm pretty sure we swapped gum once. Why does all of this matter? It probably doesn't. However, what does matter is that any time we do something together (like this concert for example), I know it is going to be a memorable time.
Wearing this tee shirt isn't just a representation of the type of music I like. It isn't just me saying, "Hey everybody! Look how cool I am in my band tee shirt!" This simple shirt is a reminder of the night my best friend/sister and I nearly froze to death running across a busy road sans coat, her in a dress, and me in shorts with tights in the middle of February. And how the venue had run out of main floor wrist bands, so we hopped over the wall and ran from the security guards to get to the main floor. Because, honestly, who wants to dance their ass off in a chair far from where the band is playing? Then, we went back to our hotel (yes, we got a hotel for the event even though the venue was only about 30-40 minutes from home) and drank wine in the hot tub until 2:00 in the morning.
So, today, to adultify this tee shirt, I decided to pair it with some high waisted black jeans, a blazer, a couple of bracelets, and my rose gold Michael Kors watch. Btw, does anyone else get a weird crotch thing in jeans? Especially high waisted ones. Just me? Oh.
Do you have any articles of clothing that elicit fond memories? Or unfortunate ones?
