Cornflake Girl

The title of this post is inspired by 2 things. One, my lifelong love of cold cereal. (Seriously, it's probably what I'd take to a desert island - if I could somehow sneak in a refrigerator for a never-ending supply of almond milk.) Two, this is the outfit I wore to the Tori Amos concert at Peabody Opera House last weekend. Though much of my musical taste gravitates towards harder rock, like System of a Down and Metallica, I've been a Tori Amos fan since high school. Her offbeat, emotional, piano-laden songs were there for me through heartaches and triumphs alike.

As excited as I was about going to the show, the question of what to wear was more difficult to answer than usual. Typically, I'd use the genre to dictate my outfit (edgy look for rock concert, boho look for outdoor festival, etc.), but Tori's music is tough to categorize. I decide to go the casual-chic route: feminine top + denim shorts + vintage crossbody bag. My comfy ensemble allowed me to really focus on Tori's incredible handling of the piano. Many of my fave songs from the 90s didn't make the set list, but I was still blown away by how she played two different pianos simultaneuously. What do you like to wear to concerts?
Shelby, my sis Kim, and me outside the Peabody! We didn't intentionally coordinate outfits. LOL

2 pianos, 1 Tori. This is not really happening? You bet your life it is!
