You Won't Know

This is one of my favorite skirts that I often forget about for awhile. It's perfect for the summer because it's thin and breezy. While I love tons of colors sometimes it's nice to go full on teenage goth.

Seeing Brand New the other night was so great. They played a wonderful set, but boy was the sound awful. Outdoor venues are pretty weird and I really dislike arenas. I like the intimacy of small venues and dive bars. Which I've seen Brand New in a few times, so it's nice to have some variety. It's always weird when small bands become huge, ya know? The crowd was really strange and barely sang along, so my friends and I looked like crazy people. But we didn't mind one bit.

If by some chance, you spent your youth under a rock, here's a playlist I made with my favorite Brand New songs. Their sound changed a lot over the years, but the intensity of the lyrics has always stayed. Which is part of the reason I love them so much. Plus I make a lot of playlists and it's nice to share.

  1. A great (mostly) black look that still manages to be summer and fun!

  2. I hate when crowds are like that. No fun! I like to dance with people and sing with them as we all sway together like crazies. I'm sure you've been to a show or two like that. Sometimes the crowd just gels. On a separate note, you look so cute. I love that skirt, and yes full on goth is a must sometimes.

  3. That skirt looks too comfy and breezy, but is a fun and sophisticated way. I need to incorporate more pieces like that in to my wardrobe. Also - I AM SO JEALOUS YOU SAW BRAND NEW! I would have been one of the crazies screaming along with you. They pretty much sum up high school for me (that an possibly Stray Light Run), spending countless hours listening to them on my discman and in the car :] Thanks for sharing the playlist, it brought back memories.

  4. Aw man, that's the absolute worst! When a band you love is playing and the crowd isn't into it, it can drag you down as well. Glad it didn't bother you two! I bet Brand New appreciated your enthusiasm ;)
    Love this dark look for summer! I'm a fan of it haha

  5. I'm glad you had fun at your concert. That's a nice summer skirt.

  6. I've been dying to see Brand New for years now. Every time they come around my area (NYC/North Jersey), tickets sell out within minutes. The crowds have been super weird at all of the festivals and outdoor shows I've gone to recently... particularly when I saw Best Coast a few weekends ago. My friend and I were the only ones dancing and singing where we were standing. Do folks not dance at shows anymore? Did I miss the memo?! Glad it didn't get you down, though!

  7. I love this look! It's very dramatic and fun! I prefer intimate venues too...outdoor is totally nailed it. And arenas...meh. I'm so intrigued that you uploaded a spotify playlist and I totally need to learn how to do so now! XO

  10. Your outfit is super cool! I work so much and keep forgetting its summer and that I NEED to get out to a show. So Thanks for the reminder! Sounds like a good time, I also prefer dive bars and small venues.

  11. I'm in love! Totally diggin' your outfit!
    The hat, the glasses - you are such a stylish lovely lady! ♥

  12. Ooooooo! I love the long black maxi skirt. It's so hard for us "shortie's" to pull this look off but you look great in it! I love mixing up what I wear every now and then...
