Giveaway: Honor by August at 9:30 Club

In summer, I always go with brights. It’s how I feel. Bright. Happy. When the sun is shining and the music is pumped up. But I’m challenging myself to go black and white for summer. And a concert at the end of a long week seems like just the perfect time for it. (Cause let’s be honest, I’ll be tired and black and white is so so easy.) I’d probably go with ripped denim, a favorite white tee, a sparkly accessory, and fun shoes for dancing. Scroll down for some more easy-breezy black and white inspiration while you listen to my updated 2013 playlist.

Ok, now to the fun part…I’m giving away two tickets to see Honor by August at the 9:30 Club this Friday! Their love songs are fun and sweet and the show would be a perfect girlfriend date night in DC. Plus it turns out these guys look pretty cute in black and white too. (Fun fact: they were the first band I ever saw at 9:30 when they opened for Hanson in 2005.) To enter to win, leave a comment below with your current favorite song. Good luck!

Giveaway: Angela & Roi Bag

giveaway: Angela & Roi cross body bag

Isn’t this cross-body bag from Angela & Roi just perfect for fall? It instantly reminds me of back to school shopping – when I’d hunt down cool, structured pieces in my favorite dark plum color. Like in 7th grade I had a dark purple cropped denim jacket AND matching flared jeans from XOXO. I may have worn them together too. Oh yeah. Such a trendsetter.
