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: Willy Moon at U Street Music Hall

When you listen to a great song and all you want to do is dance – the last thing you want to be wearing is something you can’t move in. I love adding one casual and comfy piece for a night out at a show…like an oversized t-shirt, beanie + side braid, sweatshirt, my favorite worn in jeans, or sneakers in a great color.

Need some music to get you in the dancing mood? Check out my updated 2013 playlist. It includes a fun song by Willy Moon (who also happens to be super stylish himself).

Giveaway: The Vaccines at 9:30 Club

DC has some great concert venues and in the next month or so I’m really excited to go to a couple of shows. It’s one of the best things to do in the winter, right? It’s not like I can spend a Friday night soaking up the sun at jazz in the garden…might as well stay warm by singing and dancing around with a few hundred friends to some great music. And you’ll most likely find me in an outfit just like the one above. Comfy, practical, a little more bad-ass than I actually am.

I’m excited to team up with the 9:30 Club for a great giveaway for two tickets to the Vaccines show on Friday February 1st. To enter, leave a comment below sharing one of your current favorite songs. (I made a small playlist of some of the songs I have on repeat – check it out on spotify!) For an extra entry, tweet about the giveaway using the hashtag #Vaccines930.

I’ll announce the winner next Friday but if you don’t want to wait or you definitely want to end up at the show with yours truly, you can buy your tickets here. Hope to see ya there!

Daily Inspiration

I’ve fallen off the radar a bit because I’m knee deep in a fun but intense work project. I wanted to share a few things that are keeping me inspired… a sparkling clean and beautiful house, strawberry doughnuts(!), and being a bit of a type nerd. I’ve been listening to some great music that has kept me going too…check out some of my faves below. What are you listening to this week?
