Trainwreck

When I was younger I basically lived in band t-shirts. Since I still have all of them, I figure, why not wear them? Especially in the winter months when sometimes a dress simply won't cut it. This is a shirt for the band Boys Night Out. They were (and still are) one of my all-time favorite bands. Trainwreck is probably still in my top favorite and most listened to records. It's a brilliant concept album about murder. Sound dark? Well, it is, but I like it a little dark sometimes. BNO was a significant part of my high school/early college years and I met some amazing ladies at their shows and have so many memories surrounding their music. Plus this shirt is pink and y'all know how much I love pink.

I scored these boots from the most recent ModCloth sale. My former combat boots were pretty beat up and I had been too cheap to replace them. I, however, found these gems for about $13. That's a price I couldn't pass up and I'm glad I didn't. These are strangely comfortable and roomy enough for thick tights + boots.

  1. After seeing this shirt on instagram on sunday I put together a playlist of all my favourite music from back in the day including these guys, thanks for the inspiration ;)
    Love the bank tee with that skirt, such a great combination. I need to rustle up my old band tees!

  9. Modcloth boots in the sale is a serious win. I am the same with the t-shirts. I used to be all about the band tees and now rarely wear them. Need to find more ways to bring them back into my wardrobe. So long as they aren't totally lame now. heheh.

  12. Wow $13 is an awesome price! I should've bought a pair! I don't have boots like that and they always look so cool on people. I really like yours with this awesome outfit. I love styling band t-shirts too, as you know, so I always enjoy seeing you style up yours. This shirt is really really cool. I've never heard that band and I probably should amend that asap.

  13. Ooooh, I recently had to discard my combat boots too since they were falling apart. I'll have to check out Modcloth...
    Anyway, I love the matching pinks in your tee and beanie - you match everything so well!

  16. I have too many old band shirts to count, I should start styling them like you do instead of wearing them just to clean around the house. I love that skirt too, the detail of it is so cute!
