Musical Weekend in Basic Black

 Dress: Gap (old), Jacket: Madewell (old), Booties: Asos, Accessories: Asos embellished beanie, Forever 21 rhinestone and H&M gold spike necklaces, LionetteNY bracelet, ily couture bracelet, Casio watch, Belgargo bracelet, Foley & Corinna bag

This weekend was one of the most fun I've had so far this summer! If you haven't seen my Instagram post then you may not realize that I was lucky enough to see Justin and Jay Z in concert (woot woot!). As you can probably imagine (and if you like their music) it was incredibly FUN! By the time the concert started, I forgot all about the freezing SF cold (since it was an outdoor event).

We also maintained the music theme by going to the SF Symphony's Disney in Concert. This made me relive all the incredible movies I saw as a kid. I remember watching the films over and over and singing every lyric I knew when I was little. It's amazing how kids can re-watch a movie multiple times and not get sick of it (I notice this now with the kids in my life hah!). 

Everything was perfect except for the weather. Too bad the SF weather was still gloomy this weekend. While I have been wearing brighter outfits lately to contrast the gray in the sky, I ended up going for basic black for one of my looks this weekend. Black outfits are definitely easy to feel chic in.

How was your weekend?


  1. SO cool you were at the concert from Jay-Z and Justin!
    I love the outfit your wearing here. The jacket is gorgeous.

  2. OMG I saw JT and Christina Aguilera in their hay day and it was one of the best concerts ever! I really love your black and brown today. Totally cute! I love when neutrals have as much as an impact as color!

  3. That must've been such an amazing concert! Love the outfit. I love booties this season and yours are perfect! I love the suede jacket. It's edgy and chic. I love how monochromatic the outfit is and the fun statement jewelry. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Just started following on GFC & BL. Hope you can follow back so we can stay connected : )

    I bet the concert was so fun. My husband is listening to that JT album non stop. Haha! It looks cold over there in the city! But I love that jacket. I have decided I need to get a brown leather or suede jacket for this fall/winter. :)
