Monday Round Up: LBDs + Rock n' Roll

Monday, January 18, 2016

Back at it friends! It's Monday morning but this morning I do not have to work because of Martin Luther King, Jr Day. A great reason to honor a fantastic and irreplaceable man. It is also a great day not work because it is still freezing here in Minnesota.  Another fun note, if you do not follow me on instagram do so here. Yesterday I did a takeover with @thriftstylist to share some of my thrift shop finds. It was super fun and I got  to get to know some new followers. If you have not seen it already check it out!  This weekend was particularly cold with the high on Saturday of -7 degrees. Ack! However, I would not let this keep me down. It was a busy weekend so let's get started.

Friday I went out The Cabooze in Minneapolis for their annual The Last Waltz tribute concert.  If you are  not familiar in the 60s and 70s there was a band called The Band. They backed up both Ronnie Hawkins and Bob Dylan for a time as well as making their own music In the late 1970s they decided to go their separate ways but not before they had one last concert. They invited all of their friends, basically a who's who of 60s and 70s music and they played. A very young Martin Scorsese filmed it for a documentary. It's crazy cool! This local band basically remakes it every year and they have other local musicians come in and play the other parts. This was my third year going and I always have fun. This year I went with my dad and younger sister. It ran longer than normal so we could not stay for the encore but we had fun anyway. It is always interesting to see how much talent exists in our city. I particularly liked the guy who did the Muddy Waters song, I am pretty sure they said his name is Tom Aiden. Overall, super fun!  Watch the documentary you will not be disappointed 








On Saturday we went to dinner with my parents, Nonna and great Aunt for my birthday. I will be completely honest. I wore the same dress that night that I did last week for my birthday. Hey, it was my birthday dress and I still celebrating my birthday AND it was a different crowd. I think I got away with it. Before we went out D and I made a pit stop at our favorite place Donny Dirk's Zombie Den before dinner. Always a good idea.


After we headed to dinner at Chianti Grill in Roseville. It's Italian you cannot go wrong. We have eaten there multiple times and have never been disappointed. Plus it is always great to have dinner with my parents, Nonna and Great Aunt. Not to mention it was literally ridiculous cold out and they all came out anyway, I completely appreciate it. I also ordered a cocktail in a champagne glass, everything is better in a champagne glass ;)



On Sunday we went up to my in-laws to celebrate both my birthday and my sister-in-laws birthday. We had a great afternoon with yummy food and I got to see some of my nieces and my nephew, which was super fun. We watched the Seahawks get beat by Carolina which was awesome as a Vikings fan. I am incredibly lucky to have such fun in-laws. 


Here we go, fashion moment! Last week I did not have time to get some shots in the dress and I wanted to make sure I was doing this amazing dress justice. I bought this after Christmas when shopping with my cousin. One of the few times I have tried and a dress and it was an immediate yes. I bought this at one of my favorite local boutiques Proper & Prim and it is perfect because it basically needs nothing. I had everything else already in my closet. These amazing burgundy and black, suede and crocodile heels. I have also been layering bracelets like crazy lately and cannot get enough. Just buy all the gold bracelets you can and go to town! This dress served me well as I got lots of compliments which is exactly what a birthday girl wants. What do you think? Leave me a comment below.
