Life is wild. Here's why: a few weeks ago, I titled a post "I'm Sprung", featuring the most Spring-y outfit I could muster, and a discussion of how much I love T-Pain (enough to use his lyrics as a blog post title.) Fast-forward to a couple weeks ago, where in a simple twist of fate- I GOT TO SEE T-PAIN in concert (long-story short: my friend had a ticket to Vanderbilt's Spring show that he gave me.) As I was standing there, overdressed in my velvet leggings, in a throng of underage, raucous college students, the air thick with smoke and Spring air, and he (they?) played this song, I was thinking about my BLOG and feeling old. How providential was that?!

The show was fun. I can't really confirm that T-Pain was there, I couldn't see very well and there were 20+ people on stage. Hype men are a real thing. I live-tweeted the whole thing and that was probably the funnest part, laughing at my own jokes since '91.

OH- I've now worn this outfit twice this Spring, and felt very Sprung both times. Got me doin' things I'll never do if u ain't been I'm tellin' you go ahead and enjoy that song and think of me!!

EDIT: I have to add that this skirt was handmade by Andrea's wonderful grandmother, not me! I can't take credit for her talent!

That is a beautiful skirt, perfect for Spring and handmade? You're so talented! I like the purple chevrons with the grey :)

It's awesome you had a good time at the concert and got to hear your favourite song :)

What a coincidence! That story made me laugh. Would you say you were overdressed in your velvet leggings?? I feel like a concert would be a great place to wear them!

OMG I'm so impressed that you can make a skirt that adorable. I can't even DIY jewelry that doesn't look like a preschooler made it. You HAVE to post a tutorial!!

Ooh, I had to add: not handmade by ME! By a friend's grandma. Thank you though!

Priya said...

Normally I would agree, but everyone was wearing teeny tiny jean shorts and crop tops. So yeah, I was overdressed.

This is such a great outfit, Priya! I love the skirt - I think I need to start thinking about making my own skirts (or asking my mom to make them for me, haha), as I rarely find any in the stores that I like and that work for me. Also, I love reading all your posts - you're too funny! :)
