The Music Wall

With the fall finally settling in (hello cloudy skies and rainy weather), I have been obsessing over finding the perfect fall album/music. I go through these spurts of absolutely having to find new music to listen to, to going back to my old favorite records and listening to them over, and over again.

At the Tempe Arts Center they have this amazing wall that has music pages inside these orange, see-through knobs. They're kind of really awesome, and I love how they tie into the whole music scene that the Arts Center encourages so much.

So far this "fall" I'm really loving The Weakerthans, States, Ben Kweller (his self-titled cd will always remind me of this time of year) and The Bedroom Demos by Stars. Yesterday the new Mates of State album came out and I won't stopping obsessing over it until I have it in my hands. I've been listening to them on and off since high school, and absolutely love that they are a husband and wife team! Not to mention they are both totally adorable!

Today I plan on having a breakfast date with my love, working on some school work, picking up that amazing cd I've been coveting over, and attending my in-person class. I'm hoping the amazing weather sticks around awhile longer, because I'm sure loving this fall-esque weather.

  1. Such a lovely outfit! You make red look good!

  2. the back drop with your outfit is so awesome and you look beautiful in that bright red!

  3. I love that cardigan! Target should pay you because I think I'm going to go purchase my own after seeing it modeled.

  4. every fall i run to the smiths. something is so intimate and warming about hearing morrisey through my headphones while clutching my jacket in the wind. im definitely going to check out your suggestions, obviously im not very up on new music.


  5. This is such a gorgeous outfit!!! I love the colors. And I love finding new music too, or at least, new to me. Lately I've been listening to lots of The Pretty Reckless, Placebo and Credence Clearwater Revival, haha. Definitely a random mix!

    Today was spent shopping for our anniversary gifts and making an Autumn Dream List for my blog! ^_^

  6. I had no idea there was a new Mates of State album! Thanks for the heads up, I'm excited to purchase it now.


  7. Cute shoes and nail color! XO, Rae

  8. Oh man, I feel you on Ben Kweller in the autumn, and I'm actually digging the Weakerthans as well right now. Pair those two with the Get Up Kids and Modest Mouse, and you have my current musical life!

    Also, I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your posts. I'm from Phoenix, but I just moved to Wisconsin after living in Idaho for three years. I can't wait to come home this Christmas to visit some of the places you have shared, and I have actually given my Mom and sister some tips from your posts! So, thank you Chelsea for keeping in the loop with my home when I'm away from home!

  9. This outfit is PERFECT in every way!
    And I think I have that same cardigan!! :D

  10. Love love loving this outfit! From head to toe, this is great. You're so lucky you won those wedges. And I'm on the hunt for my own leather bracelet, which is hard for me.
