shirt - Man Man
jeans - H&M
jacket - c/o HauteLook
scarf - Modcloth
camera bag - Siena c/o Jo Totes
shoes - c/o Twisted Shoes

I'm obsessed with this shirt. The kind of obsessed where you don't want to wear something because you want to keep it perfect. Not only is it zombie Ben Franklin eating pizza in a cemetery, it was one of the only souvenirs I bought on my first big solo roadtrip. I'm also a huge fan of this style of shirt, raglan shirts are the best!

You guys, I could talk about how much I love Man Man basically until the end of time. They've been my favorite band for a really long time but I got to see them live for the very first time at the beginning of this year. Then I miraculously caught them three more times. And by "miraculously" I mean I drove... a lot. Worth every single mile. There are only a few bands I can listen to over and over and over and they're certainly one of them. There's just something about Man Man that just sucks me in and I cannot get enough. They're on tour now, you should go check them out because they'll blow your mind plus some of the dates are with Xenia Rubinos and she can siiiiing! At the very least, give my favorite Man Man song, Van Helsing Boombox, a listen. (Also try Rabbit Habits, Against The Peruvian Monster, Whalebones & Poor Jackie) You won't be sorry!

It was really cold taking these pictures. I mean, really reeeeally cold. As much as I totally adore this coat I know that forty outfit posts in a row featuring it would get super boring so I had to lose the coat for most of the pictures. Although I did have to include one photo of it because it looked super snazzy with the jeans and I wanted to show off my new scarf. Anyway, jumping pictures help keep you warm. And that smile in the fourth picture? The look of sheer insanity which is exactly what you need to be a blogger in the winter.

Happy Monday!

PS. Here's a photo I took on the other side of the cemetery right after I took outfit pictures. Isn't it so pretty!?

  1. Love the outfit, especially those pants!


  2. When I read this I almost didn't check the tour dates because no one ever comes to my town but they'll be here February 15! Totally going now.

  3. Love this outfit! And those pants are wonderful! Thank you for braving the cold for these cute shots!

  4. I was so sad when I heard on our local radio station that they were in town that day (it was the Pittsburgh show) and I was working that night. I'd meant to go, just because you've spoken of them so highly, heheh. Well, next time!

    And yes, raglan shirts ARE the best!

    1. Aw! Such a bummer. I was there and you can bet next time they're in Pittsburgh I'll be there again!

  5. Oh my god, that shirt is EVERYTHING. I have terrible anxiety but I always think about risking it just to see Man Man. Then I think about having a horrible panic attack while watching my favorite band and just... ugh.

  6. That shirt is so awesome! I love it!

  7. I seriously love this one....and your hair is amazing!

  8. I just saw Man Man in concert with Gogol Bordello last Sunday.

  9. I love buying one interesting clothing item per trip because it makes it that much more special when you wear it again. Those pants are the epitome of cool.

  10. Hey, Kaylah, I just realised: how come you haven't hung out with Elycia in forever?

    1. Because she smells funny.

      ...Or maybe because she lives far away and it's not that easy to travel with a baby.

  11. love the post today. your hair looks fantastic, and i like the Man Man songs, i'll have to check out their stuff the next time i'm in a record shop. I have been so bad about checking out new music lately, so thanks!

    also love how extremely happy you are even though it was freezing outside!

  12. Van Helsing Boombox was the first Man Man song I ever heard. I fell in love. Hard. And I saw them live last year, and that was the first song in their set. I cried, some of the happiest tears I've ever cried. It was beautiful, and amazing, and to date one of the top 5 shows I've been to. Love them something fierce!!!

  13. Adorable! And thank you for a heads up on some new music, I was in need of that!!


  14. Love your outfit. And the jumping pic; jumping pics are always so fun! Stupidly I myself can hardly lift myself from the surface when I jump. Guess I'm an old fart;-). Your hair has a beautiful intense color; cool!

  15. aww it's amazing to see someone who loves a band that much and is so proud of it! :)
    love your outfit and I am definitely not tired of that coat, feel free to wear it over and over again on your posts! haha
