Keep It Classy, Salt Lake

Friday, April 30, 2010
It is Friday and I rarely post on Fridays. Mostly because I need two free days to dress like a bum and not have photographic evidence of it, especially all over the internet. But I thought this was somewhat blog-worthy. You've all seen these pieces before and it's not really a shocker but I thought I did pretty well picking this out while I was half-awake this morning.

And now my bum dressing will ensue as I finish packing. We are leaving the Lake of Salt in exactly one week! I'm 90% happy and 10% sad - I just found out Modest Mouse is going to perform free at the Twilight Concert Series this summer. The one time something good happens in Salt Lake City and I'm not going to be here!!!

    Nice leather jacket! I lost mine!!! Two of them. I don't know where they'd gone moving from state to state :-( Make sure you don't lose things from moving around a lot! Nice layering of the necklaces, too.
