Outfits Of The Yesterdays: Santigold + Sunny, Sunny Sundays

♫: Fame – Santigold

Oh, hello. Life has been a little crazy lately, so I apologize for my lack of posting, but here are a few more outfits that I wore last week.

We had the pleasure of catching Santigold at the Ogden last Tuesday night, and it was so good! So good. I used to go to lots of concerts in my late teens and early 20’s, often road-tripping with friends up to Minneapolis or down to Omaha, and while I have seen lots of good bands…I think this was likely one of my favorite concerts. Don’t get me wrong, nothing beats  Vanilla Ice playing at the South Dakota State Fair in Huron, South Dakota at the pinnacle of his super hot career when I was 9, but this was a good one.

It’s at least in my top five. I had wanted to see Santigold for awhile now, and she definitely didn’t disappoint. I (regrettably) did not bring my own camera, but thankfully heyreverb.com has some great shots up online from the show. Fringe shorts & cummerbunds abound–the energy at the show was audacious; live music is always so good for the soul:

We all hit up D Bar to properly stuff our faces before the show, and if you’re a fellow Denverite reading this blog that has yet to try it–go!  We hit it up a lot last summer/fall, and while it had been a few months since I had last imbibed in some “ch ch ch churros!” and vanilla bean lemonade, it was just as delicious as always. I like D Bar because it’s great both as a romantic little date spot and as a place to hang with a good group of friends. While there isn’t a whole lot of seating, the seating that is there is cozy, intimate, and mellow–if you can get it.  Love.

On to the outfits. The first outfit below is what I wore to the concert. I have no idea what I’m doing in the second photo, I didn’t even realize that I could still bend my knee that way nor do I recall actually taking that particular photo, so.

One of these days I’m sure that I will look back and totally miss the days where I could take super over-indulgent pictures of myself posing like a drunk flamingo. Just as my gramma always says.  Getting old is fun!

 

And the next outfit is what I wore for a casual Sunday lunch out.  Because of Lupus, I’m not supposed to be in the direct sun for extended periods of time (UV rays cause me to flare + break out into painful rashes, fucking awesome), so I often try to keep my upper-half covered up even on warmer summer days.  I do like wearing shorter skirts and shorts to balance it out so I don’t overheat though, as I like to think that the sun rays can’t hit quite as hard down that way since I’m so short (a flawed theory I’m sure, but I rarely lollygag in the direct sun anyhow), and to avoid any scandalous moments with the shorter skirts I often layer a pair of thin, cotton/jersey shorts underneath.

My favorite pair to wear is a pair of “normal” shorts that I bought at Urban Outfitters about two years ago (you can see them on me here in a really old photo)–they are just the right thickness and length to keep things adequately covered without being bulky. They also have a good un-underwear-ness about them, so they don’t look too risque or weird if accidentally seen in a gust of wind. While the UO shorts that I own are no longer available to purchase, try looking around for athletic shorts/yoga shorts that don’t have drawstrings. This pair by MPG at Amazon would work well, too!

And if you love the Michael Kors Rosegold watches but hate the pricetags, I just found an interesting little “inspired by” of the watch I’m wearing below at Endless for around $38. I’m not familiar with the brand so I can’t vouch for the quality or craftsmanship, but it’s definitely a look for much, much less.. Woohoo:

    I am so overwhelmed by the awesomeness of your blog; I’m not sure where I should start. I just love EVERYTHING. The colors and textures, the jewlery, the HAIR. Perfectly gorgeous. Glad to have found you via Pinterest!

    • Thanks so much for the kind words, Catie!  You have a great blog too (and get this–I’ve *always* wanted to chop my hair into a pixie cut, want to swap hair?  Hee hee hee). Thanks for stopping by! ❤

  • ThefashionableESQ

    Hi! I’m so into the cream tweed and the mint green accents (shirt and bracelet, etc). I love that look. I also really love a black sheer blouse like yours. They’re so chic!

    • Thanks girlie! It’s funny, because I don’t wear a whole lot of black tops, but whenever I put that one on I always think, “Ooh, need to wear more.” It’s definitely my favorite “little black top”, glad to see others like it too.  ❤

    Love these outfits!  I also adore how you use pieces from ASOS, Forever 21, and ZARA.  I work at a non-profit, so my non-profit clothes budget is meager, and I love how you incorporate “budget conscience” items in to your outfits.

    p.s. I went to high school with Santigold’s backup dancers.  They are both from TX and are amazing performers!  Yay Monica and Desiree!!! :)

    • WHAAAAAT. *bows down to you* I am obsessed with those two girls, and without sounding like the dorkiest person ever–their dancing gave that whole show an energy and vibe that is usually SO hard to find in Denver, Colorado. Love them.

      And thank you! ❤

  • CK

    That white skirt is amazing (the studs! the shape!).  I also love how you accessorize everything – I need those purple cuffs in my life.

    I just love your Chloe’cisms, as I call them.  “Drunk flamingo” you say?  Love the pic on one leg.  I like how you layered the YSL ring… I do that and people stop me all the time to ask about it cuz it looks so cool and then they see its two rings and they say OH! and move on… poof goe my puffed out feathers of inspiration!  oh well!  I have the same F21 bracelet from the last pics and love it!
    When you have 2 seconds of boredom please check out my blog and let me know what you think!  I promise not to bore you some more!

    Happy Wednesday!http://danaslookbook.blogspot.comXOXO  Dana

    • Hahahahahaha, I’m glad someone likes my Chloe-isms, thanks so much Dana!  ♥

  • Ah jealous that you saw Santigold. I wanted to see her when she was in Vancouver but had a different concert to go to on the same day :( That Zara skirt is super cute… Zara is just loving everything studded these days I’ve noticed.

    xo, alison*elle

  • Beautygirl24

    Love, love, love the second outfit! I saw that skirt at Zara, and didn’t pick it up. Now I’m kicking myself! You look amazing in all of these little skirts and shorts you’ve been sporting.

    • Thanks girlie! Now that I’m 30, I know my short skirt/short short wearing days are numbered. Blah, getting old. >:(

  • I saw the shorts version of that skirt – didn’t see the skirt yet but it is fab! I must go spy it now.

    • Ooh, and I didn’t see the shorts version! Darnit for not having a Zara nearby.

  • daintyanddecadent

    Your hair always looks perfect!  So pretty :-)  and I love the skirt with the stud details!

  • Ooh, thanks for the tip on the look-alike watch at Endless…will definitely be checking it out!  Glad to hear you’re doing a little better today…really loving the black/mustard outfit here!! :)

    • Thanks so much, Kim! The price of the watch makes me a little nervous for its quality–thank goodness for Endless.com’s good return policy?

  • sorry you aren’t feeling well girl! =( but you look gorgeous as always. and i’m pretty sure that studded zara skirt is going to find it’s way home to my closet! LOVE.
