Here's a taste of her music to get you in the mood:
That's Lissie, y'all--the most vivacious, ear-catching, and folksy American artist I've been listening to over the last year or so. Since discovering her at SXSW last year, I've run her albums into the ground and was able to catch her at ACL and the ACL after show in 2010. Here's what I like about her:
- She's loud (her voice penetrates every crevice of a room)
- She's cool (after her SXSW show I caught her as she was packing up to tell her how much I enjoyed it and she seemed very grateful for the compliment)
- She's casual (I call it comfortable and subtly sexy)
She is smashing, I know it. Here's how I'd attempt to pull off her look:
It's warm outside. Therefore, cut-off denim shorts are a must. I'd easily pair them with a cute plaid shirt, buttoned up with sleeves rolled or unbuttoned and with a simple white tank underneath.
Another option would be a cute maxi dress. I love the flowy-ness and simple silhouette of this one, and maxi dresses are always fun to accessorize.
