I love music. Real music… not this carly ray call me-gaga-levato-gomez pop nonsense crap. I have two pop guilty pleasures vintage Britney Spears and Kelly Clarkson(who is actually a musical genius). Other than those two, I am completely ignorant of any popular music… ask my friends Emily and Shirley. Who, against my will, force me to listen to terrible music including gum gum style!?!? I don't even know. I'm old. I like real music. Luckily, we know some people who still play real music and when they visited SoCal The Captain and I had a weekend of fun! I'm just gonna say it, I'd make a terrific groupie-- minus all the pervy stuff. Get your head outta the gutta! This was my chilly night concert look! I love dressing for outdoor concerts here in San Diego because you know you are going to be a little cold, but get all amped up and jump and sing, etc. Unless you are boring, then you sit the whole time and would be better off listening to the cd in the comfort of your home. Now about my Target booties, I never wear nice shoes to a concert!! There is booze and questionable sticky stuff everywhere! Ew. Gross. So I decided that I would have a designated pair of concert boots and these 35 dollar Target booties fit the bill perfectly!!! This particular pair is currently not available, but check out the cute pair I found below. photos via Kelsey Erin Photography | Gotta love my photo bombing dogs.

A flower crown is a must for any hippie in training! Just ask Pinterest!! Despite my lack of crafting skills I was able to, with the help from a friend, create an inexpensive and super cool flower crown quicker than you can say hippie-dippy-trippy-coachella-petchuli stink. Swearsies
[We started by wrapping 2 pieces of raffia wire together to our desired circumference. No idea if that's what it's actually called, but it looks like flower wire wrapped in raffia. You can find it in the silk flower section]
[We choose 2 different kinds of fake flowers, a main white one and then a smaller beige flower. We took off all of the leaves and some of the white flowers and added smaller beige petals to give it a little somethin' special.]
The finished product!!! For under 10 bucks, I think it's the perfect accessory for a photo shoot, a wedding, or whatever hipster music festival you're heading to next!!! Enjoy!!!
