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)
