August 9, 2011: Chambray, Creme, Brown for a concert

Top: American Apparel
Skirt: Madewell sale ($32)
Belt: American Apparel
Bag: Brimfield Flea ($30)
Necklace: Spotted Moth sale ($32)

Whew! What a whirlwind of a weekend, I can't believe we're right back to Tuesday! There is so much that happened these past few days, it's hard to know where to begin. Friday is the logical start, this is what I wore to see Alison Krauss & Union Station at Meadowbrook in Gilford, NH on Friday. Chris's mom was kind enough to invite us along with her and her beau to see the concert. And we saw the concert alright: sixth row, center! It was pretty amazing. I'm a big bluegrass and old timey fan and was so excited when they played songs from the Oh Brother Where Art Thou? soundtrack, that is one of my favorite movies of all time, and one of my favorite albums.

Since I spent most of the day in the car, I opted for something simple and extremely easy, with punchy accessories. A creme tank and chambray skirt fit the bill, with my favorite shoes. I added a patterned bag to add a little interest. Chris and I also filed our marriage license on Friday morning, so exciting!

I love the added small details, such as, the bangle bracelet with touches of coral and turquoise, and the twist with the belt closure. Also, we need closeups of those shoes...super cute!

If you spent most of your day in the car then you want to be comfy, and this outfit looks very much so. I love the colour of your skirt and teamed with the white top it gives a very fresh feel! Your bag is adorable too.
