Maybe Michaele Salahi Got it Right: An Evening with Journey

17,000 people filled the pavilion for the sold out Journey concert

Heading out to the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion last night, I was excited, but didn’t really think too much of the Journey concert I was about to attend. Sure I loved the band that became so popular in the 70’s and 80’s (and lets be honest, 2000’s thanks to Glee), but with a new lead singer and after years of being on the road, I didn’t think they’d really live up to the hype. Well, was I ever wrong. Journey came out, took over the stage and kept the entire pavilion full of people – age range 5 to 75 – on their feet for their entire hour and a half set. You sometimes forget what a good song can do for the soul, but last night the thousands of attendees and I smiled broadly,¬†waved our hands high, and¬†sang at the top of our lungs. And while the media is scrambling to get the real story of what happened in the Michaele Salahi, Tareq Salahi, Neal Schon triangle, I can say without a doubt I figured it out last night…Michaele knew that life was just better lived at a Journey concert. Well played.

For those of you not in attendance last night, here’s a quick montage of the evening

Oh By The Way: Night Ranger and Foreigner opened and they rocked the place as well.

Let’s Be Honest: If life is a dance, I want to dance to Journey

Accessorize: Going to see this 80’s band inspired me to get my newly purchased Topshop crop top out of the closet. Here are a few ways to sport the tricky tee.

Pair it with a long dress (dress from Gap)

Layer it over a long sleeve blouse (blouse from Banana Republic, 7 for All Mankind Jeans)

And if you do your sit ups, wear it with high waisted jeans (Rich & Skinny Jeans, Topshop belt)
