i heart rock n' roll

I think it's safe to say that most everything in my closet (and the outfits that I put together from those items) are not exactly "rock n roll." Yes, I go to a lot of shows, but I would not consider anything I listen to to be "rock" and the attire I wear to such shows definitely reflects that.

You've all seen my wardrobe. It's sweet dresses and boots for days. But I bought these red pants at Necessary Clothing on a recent trip to NYC last fall because a) I needed some color in my life and b) colored pants/jeans were everywhere saying "buy me! look cool! buy me!" and c) because they were/are perfect for football season (Roll Tide!). Forgot to mention they are also super cute, affordable and comfy!

Anyhow, once I got the pants home, I realized I didn't know what the heck I was going to pair them with. Most all of my tops seemed like obvious and boring choices.

Then I got a little rock inspiration. I mean, what is fashion if not sometimes pretending to be something you're not? So here I am trying my hardest to look cool and like I could actually be a rocker. And yes, I am admitting to trying to look like a rockstar which I am pretty sure defies one of the first rules of being a rocker: Never admit you are trying to look cool. It's ok, there wasn't much hope for me anyway.
