Somehow, my boyfriend convinced me to play at an open mic with him last week! Honestly, how can you say “no” to this guy?
Remember Rock Band? I took that game seriously! I was always the singer and my brother was always the drummer. In real life, I’m still the singer and my boyfriend plays guitar. I don’t even want to get into his collection of stringed instruments because I’d rather talk about more interesting topics – liiikee my look for the night!
We have a bluegrass/blues vibe going on so I actually thought rockin’ a Canadian Tuxedo would be appropriate! I paired a denim shirt with a pair of jeans in similar color, slid a leopard print skinny belt around my waist, clasped my favorite gold necklace under my shirt collar, and added my cowgirl boots as a final touch. I pictured us looking more like Britney and JT circa 2001. Never Forget.
After a once over in the mirror, I quickly realized that I cannot pull off double denim – Especially if I wanted us to be taken seriously! If you know me, then you know that leggings are always my go-to choice. Off with the jeans and on with the leggings. Voilà!
This clip is actually a song that Max and I wrote together 🙂
We performed 4 songs that night. We were incredibly nervous but as soon as we hit the stage, it felt natural! Want to hear more?? We’re planning a set for next Thursday at Woodlands’ open mic. Come out and cheer us on! We would love the support!!
