I Can Feel It In My Bones

The title is a lyric from Metric's "Gimme Sympathy" song. Last week, I traveled to Kingston, Ontario (two hours from Ottawa) with some friends to see a Stars and Metric concert.

When deciding what to wear, I immediately knew I had to wear my new leather fringe jacket. Building on that, I pulled out my brown suede skirt and glittery oxford shoes. The outfit was almost perfect but was missing something: a shirt. Suddenly I heard a knock on my door and I was pleased to see Rosie standing there, ready to hit the road. After telling her that I had no clue what shirt to wear, she simply said: "Wear a leopard print top!" 

I was a little hesitant that leopard print was the missing piece to my outfit puzzle (especially since she tells everyone to wear leopard print, regardless if they should) but I tried it anyway. I ended up loving how it looked and I was a bit rattled by how simple my solution was. I suppose sometimes you just need a second brain.

Before the concert, we managed to visit Value Village, meet up with a few other friends and fill up on fajitas and margheritas at Lone Star, all in time for the concert! We sadly didn't have time to visit the new H&M there but we figured having dinner and getting to the concert on time were the top priorities. All this to say I had such a fun mini-road trip!

  1. I laughed out loud at the "especially since she tells everyone to wear leopard print, regardless if they should" part. Too funny! You look like a modern cow girl, so amazing. And your coat kind of matched Emily Haines'!

  2. Love the fringe on the jacket!!
