How is the weekend already over? I could use a day between Sunday and Monday to catch up on everything. But it was one heck of a weekend! I was lucky enough to see Garth Brooks this on Saturday night. We (me, my husband, and another couple) drove to Minneapolis for the 10:30 (err, it actually started at 11:30) show. Let me tell you, I was feeling pretty old staying up until 2 AM for the show and then by the time we got back to where we were staying, it was almost 3! Plus I was the driver, so trying to navigate the snowy streets and crazy parking ramps of downtown Minneapolis made for a long day.
We were WAAY up in the nosebleeds, but it was still a great show.
I wore a similar outfit to this one to the concert. It is absolutely freezing here in MN so I knew I would want a sweater and scarf for warmth. And what better scarf than a big plaid blanket scarf? I ended up being pretty cold at the concert so I unfolded my scarf and used it as a shawl/blanket to stay a bit warmer.
You know what else I love about this outfit? The sweater. It is actually a men’s sweater from American Eagle. I actually shop in the guy’s section often at AE. I love how their sweaters fit. The torso is long enough (why are so many women’s tops from there so short?) plus the sleeves are actually long enough for me. A sweater that I can actually pull the sleeves over my hands a bit is a winner in my book. Plus the elbow patches on this one are a detail that I love.
Do you ever shop in the guy’s section at stores? Which ones do you frequent?
I’m also linking up to the #BloggersWhoBudget post on favorite plaid item! It is obviously this blanket scarf that I scooped up from Brina’s Box via Jane on a steal of $20 (plus shipping). I know I’ll be wearing it all winter long!
