All Black in Spring

I've been trying to wear more color now that it's almost summer, but I still gravitate toward all black—for work and for the weekend when I want something chic, sleek and simple. Wearing one color head to toe can fall a little flat without the right mix of pattern and texture so I've been adding some edge with basics that go a step further: a structured, cropped tee that's elevated but not too special to wear on repeat, coated denim (with just a hit of sheen, it has the look of leather leggings and the wearability of blue jeans) and a fun pair of shoes. I love how the stripes and woven wedges are complementary in a low-key way.

It was just the thing to wear from work to The Wind and the Wave at 7th Street Entry last night. Chris got the tickets for my birthday; he first saw the Austin, TX group in 2014—what was then just Dwight and Patty has grown to a four-person band and they are so good! We were so pumped that we snagged two of the few stools in the small venue to watch the show (conveniently bumped up against a ledge to rest our beers). I had a (dorky) little moment walking back to the car afterward really appreciating the experience and fun date night that I wouldn't have had without my music-loving boyfriend. This and this are a couple of my favorite tracks if you're interested in listening. Oh—and I have to give a shoutout to Justin Young, one of the openers, who closed with a bomb Boyz II Men medley. I'll definitely be listening to some "End of the Road" today at work (ha).

Tonight we have our kickball league, then we're kicking off the long weekend with a bonfire at our friends' new house on Friday. Enjoy the rest of your week! xx
