Lingering snow

When I woke up this morning, it was super sunny and looked really pretty outside! By the time I was finished getting ready and done with wolfing down my strawberry jelly toast, it was gross and gray outside. I'm so super ready for spring! I'm really excited that the days are getting longer, but I definitely need some sunshine in my life. And warm wind. I don't think there is anything better than warm wind! Oh well, there is only one more week in February. Can you believe that?!

Brett and I stopped to this park first before heading over to their practice space to load up the car for their show tonight. I was like, "Brett, this outfit isn't a park outfit.. it's a city outfit!" but he refused to drive me to downtown GR to take these outfit pics on the walking bridge with the city view in the background like I had wanted. I guess I'll have to venture out that way on one of my lunch breaks with my tripod. My tripod doesn't complain at me. Haha! I still love you Brett!

Brett is putting on a Haiti benefit show tonight, so that's where I am right now, actually. Sitting on the couch in some kid's basement while kids arrive and bands set up. Thank God they have wireless. One of the things of being "Brett from Tall Ship's" wife is to sit around and wait for loading up the cars, setting up, setting out merch, watch 6-7 bands, wait for everyone to leave, tear down, load the car back up, return to the practice space and unload it again. It's a lot of waiting time for me. I used to play Nintendo DS all the time, but now I have you guys! Thanks for that!

I'm putting together a blogger meet-up for March 19 for before/after the KCAD fashion show, but I know there aren't a lot of Michigan/nearby bloggers. The girls I'm thinking of right now are bloggers, some are just involved with Chictopia and some are just interested in fashion, but if there are any other girls that might be interested, shoot me an email! I have a few spots left!

  14. love the print! at first i thought it was a tunic and i was thinking you were so brave to wear something so short, especially in the snow! i was shivering just thinking about it. i am so loving the romper trend right now. i keep seeing them everywhere and just want spring and summer to come so i can wear one loose with bare legs and sandals.

  19. I know how you feel! Being "Gavin the Sponsored Skater" means I have to be there before competitions, during them the entire time, and have to stay after so he can network and meet with sponsor people/film/ take photos. Too bad outside never has wi-fi!

  20. This outfit is really beautiful. That's so awesome that you can get on your computer while waiting around before shows. My ex was in a band, and I would always bring my knitting with me and work on my current project.

    & I understand about the whole band thing, my boyfriend used to be in a band a couple years ago and I would also have to wait for them to set up, etc.

  51. Your comment about your tripod not complaining made me laugh! My bf occasionally takes my pictures but it's usually more trouble than it's worth.

    At first I thought you were wearing a REALLY short dress and I was a little shocked. Then I realized it was a romper and thought it was adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  52. you are so adorable :) love the floral dress and your boots are gorgeous...Its still summer here in Australia but only have a few weeks left so...im getting out into the sun as much as i can :)

  54. Being a band wifey is hard! Seems like every guy i've ever dated has been in a band. I know the pain of sitting around awkwardly at shows! haha.

    ReplyDelete
  55. yay another floral..
    i love it!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I am always so surprised when people find cute shoes at forever 21, I didn't even know they had shoes until very recently. Good luck with the show tonight!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love this outfit, it's perfect! the boots are so cool.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I hope you had a fun night! I wish bands did something like that around here, but the local band scene is pretty much non-exsistent.

    Oh your story about the messenger bag made me feel better. Hahahha! Zach's like, "why do you wear such short skirts anyways!

    ReplyDelete
  59. oh Tieka, you're such a darling. loving that floral dress. and yey for the boots!

  62. Cute romper! I never thought of even buying a romper until now & the fact that you paired it with tights is such an unique idea!
    I love your bangs

    ReplyDelete
  63. This romper looks soooo cute! I love it!

    And I 100% completely know what you mean about this band stuff. One of the thing of being "Patrick from Showbread's wife" is driving up to 20 hours (it has been double that before), unloading a trailer bigger than the gigantic van, setting up, merch, and then packing up to get back in the van for 2 months straight, sometimes like 6 months,haha. Ahhhh husbands and the things we do for them!

    ReplyDelete
  64. P.S.

    Annnd I have gotten ready for the day or for 'bed' in more gas stations, barnes and nobles, and malls than I can count. Exercised in parking lots behind venues, I have even sanded/stained craft projects in parking lots around the country. It's always a dream when there's wifi!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I wish I could attend the fashion show, but unfortunately I'm on the other side of the mitten and I don't have a car! I'm still new to the blogging world, so a meet-up would be a nice way to meet people.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Awwww you are such a good Tall Ships wife!!! :) That romper looks incredible on you....even if you couldn;t get your photos in the city! ;)

  70. aw that's what happens when you're with a musician :) Matthew isn't in a band right now but I definitely know what it's like. You start to get really good at those video games haha. I love your floral romper. I'm so ready for spring too..even though I shouldn't be complaining since you're in Michigan. Wish I could attend the meet up! xox

  72. This made me giggle.. I find myself complaining that the location isn't right for my outfit when Patrick makes suggestions on where we go, too! We are so high maintenance, huh!?

    Your shoes are awesome and I love the print on this dress! Ah, as spring approaches, outfits will get brighter and brighter with color.. yes!

  79. Hmmm, there is something very different with your hair, I just know it. Whatever it is (or isn't, for that matter), I like it.

    I also like the placement of the belt. I envy all you lower-waisted girls. I have a super high waist.

    Jusssst just just began a blog, stop by if you get the chance! Don't really know how to begin in this giant scary fashion blog world.

  82. I'm a midwest blogger from Minnesota. The winter slowly fades away into nearly the end of Spring. I always get this rush as Spring starts and the weather begins to warm. I get euphoric with get butterflies in my stomach, almost like being in love. That feeling is almost worth the harshness of winter, wouldn't you say?

    Woot woot to Midwest bloggers.
