It has been many moons since I was last in “My Fashion Haus”. And for this post, just kind of breezed in to snap some photos real quick. Could hardly get in the door for the cobwebs! Recently admired Jamie’s band tee outfits so decided to get on the … bandwagon … and join the fun.
Styling a Band Tee Shirt
When I started looking for a band tee, the first place I went was Target online. Found this Rolling Stones tee in black. An AC/DC tee in charcoal and a Prince tee in white. While I can jam to “Start Me Up”, “Back in Black” and “Raspberry Beret” with the best of them, it would be a vast exaggeration to say I am a groupie of any of those bands. I am the girl who sat on the second row at a Rush concert with a blind date and passed the joint without talking a hit. Just never a big rocker. Never a smoker. So wearing a tee for a band I really don’t adore would feel disingenuous. And a little like false advertising.
On Walmart.com, I found some Def Leppard and Aerosmith, but I also found some Chicago and Journey. Getting warmer! And then, there it was. A John Denver “Rocky Mountain High” tee. Calling my name. Singing out to me.
I put that puppy in my “cart” and checked out in a hurry. Was hoping to get my tee for my trip to Albuquerque for Lucia’s birthday. And it came just in time!
Less About Styling and More About Just Getting Dressed
Can’t really say I ‘styled’ my band tee. I simply put it on over my head! Not much styling done over here lately. More just getting dressed!! But I am finally back to wearing two matching shoes. Woo hoo.
I paired my tee with a pair of cuffed, brushed cotton pants from Loft Outlet in pale yellow. Added a Target boyfriend cardi in a kind of periwinkle blue that was close to the color of the mountain graphic on the shirt.
Charming Charlie yellow stud earrings and $5.00 gray flats from Walmart completed my band tee look.
I felt semi-put together and very comfy for my 4 hour drive to Lauren’s house.
Now to get both feet back into tennis shoes and onto the treadmill! Pronto! I have over-indulged and under-exerted for far too long.
Have you jumped on the band tee bandwagon? If so, which band are you sporting? If not, which band would you like to wear? Are you a John Denver fan? In my book, you just can’t beat his beautiful lyrics and the pictures they paint. “…climbed cathedral mountains, …saw silver clouds below”. “The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullaby”.
Growing up, we often vacationed at Sky High Ranch in the Rockies, near a little southern Colorado town called Creede. I have many fond memories of those days. This is a photo taken the last time we were all together at Sky High. So thankful I was able to take my daughters there with my parents, sister and brother, one last time.
Wearing my John Denver tee made feel “Rocky Mountain High” again. And rekindled some wonderful memories of days gone by. Thank you, Jamie and John.
Hugs and kisses,
