Anything Could Happen

On Black Friday I got sucked into the $7 CD section and Target ended up walking out with Ellie Goulding's Halcyon. I first saw Ellie during a performance she did on The Today Show about a month ago, and was captivated with her unique voice and bright white hair. I also kept hearing that Ellie was Skrillex's boyfriend, but what I didn't know was who was Skrillex (I know, behind on the times). After a little research I learned that "Skrillex" is really Sonny from the now defunked band From First To Last Night (crazy!). When Scott and I were around age 16 we both went to a FFTL show at an old dive bar, The Mason Jar for you locals, and are pretty certain we were standing next to each other for about an hour or two in line before the show started. It's crazy to think that our souls were already connected by then.

Ever since I got Ellie's CD I haven't been able to stop listening to Anything Could Happen. I love the beats and electronic static behind the vocals, and also how ghostly hear voice can sound at times. Her musical presence is haunting, and perfect for an icy morning.

Outfit details:
Cardigan: Banana Republic
Scarf: c/o Le Mode Accessories
Shirt: Target
Jeans: Jcrew
Moccs: Minnetonka Moccasins

This morning I'm getting ready to meet up with my sweet friend, Courtney, and then I'm headed to class afterward. I hear it's supposed to get slightly warm today (almost 80? Yikes!), but I plan on indulging in lots of hot coffee and a cozy scarf to keep the fall/almost winter nostalgia alive!

What are you up to today? Do you like Ellie Goulding? Who's your favorite musician right now?

  2. This outfit is so refreshing. Seeing as it's already snowing here in Canada, I'm definitely wearing more dark colours and the pale brights in this outfit are making me happy! Plus your blonde-white hair looks amazing against this colour palette. Such a beautiful girl Chelsea. Also, Ellie is amazinggggg! So glad you got on the Ellie train, *toot*toot* next stop obsession town!
