outfit of the day(bird): karaoke blunders




shirt~ F21
jeans~ thrifted
shoes~ Target
earrings~ UO
watch~ vintage, from mom

i wore this for girl's night out on saturday, which was a ton of fun! we went out for drinks and karaoke. those two things always seem to go hand in hand. i don't necessarily have the courage to sing karaoke without having a couple drinks beforehand. but, of course, the best decisions are not usually made after a couple of drinks. like this great idea the other ladies and i had that night: everyone should sing a song they'd never sung before! it sounded like such a fun idea at the time. but do you know when it started to seem like not such a great idea? when i was halfway through quite possibly the most awkward rendition of ace of base's "the sign" ever to have been sung. yes, that happened. next time, i will for sure stick with my trusty standbys and try to avoid drifting into embarrassing karaoke territory. this is, of course, easier said than done, seeing as karaoke and embarrassment also often go hand in hand!

  1. And I will NEVER sing "I Think We're Alone Now" again. Never. At least not in public.

  3. I love the leopard top and how you paired this look with those wedges. It's perfect especially for a girl's night out. The ace of base story brought back some major memories too
    lol

  9. Ha ha. I don't think I could ever be drunk enough to sing karaoke. I sure do love to laugh at the people that do though.

  20. You are so funny. I don't drink, but I am always such a ham at karaoke and I don't know why? Last time I did it was at a Condo in Park City in their lounge with my family, kids included. My SIL said I looked drunk. So I guess I'll accept that. LOL

    Your leo top is divine!

  21. Enjoyed seeing your Instagrams of Kareoke while you were out
    I have done Karaoke one time in my life and I was quite inebriated. I have the worse voice ever so there is no other way I would have been caught dead singing in public!
