What I Wore Wednesday; NKOTBSB

I went to see New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys with my girls last week. Before the concert, I had to shop for an outfit. Could I have worn something in my closet? Absolutely. Did I want to wear something in my closet? No. What’s the fun in that? So, I bought the shirt at one store, the shorts at another and the shoes from a third place. {Snap!}

Once the outfit was purchased, I had to work on my tan. I knew I was in danger of looking super pale in white shorts. I can say with certainty that I haven’t worn white shorts since high school. I was out of my comfort zone, but feel like I pulled off a tan at the last minute. Thank you, Mystic Tan!

I took the day off so I could rest and have plenty of time to get ready. These things are important. Am I right, ladies? Trying to get ready with two children in the house isn’t easy, but I managed to pull this off as well. I met up with the girls at the bestie’s house. Can you say carpool?

Before heading out, we had to take pictures. Lots and lots of pictures! The bestie’s bro was our photographer. I think he did a great job. Don’t you?



Top - T.J. Maxx
Shorts - Express
Shoes - Rue 21
Jewelry - Forever 21








I never got to see New Kids on the Block when I was a kid. I’ve been making up for it big time as an adult. This was my second NKOTB concert in recent years. I was never a big Backstreet Boys fan, but pretty much knew all of the words to their songs too. We had an amazing time. All of the guys put on a great show. I sang. I danced. I screamed. I may have even drooled a little. Have you seen Donnie’s abs?!

We had excellent seats. I wish the pictures and videos had turned out better, but they were taken with my phone. Next time, I’m calling ahead to see if cameras are allowed. We assumed they wouldn’t be, but they were. Live and learn…

If NKOTB, BSB or NKOTBSB ever come to Memphis again, you can bet I’ll be there. And next time, we’re hitting up the Waffle House with the boys after the show.



It was hard to narrow the videos down to just two or three.

Here's a whole bunch!















This one of Jordan is like my most favorite one ever.

I used to listen to it over and over and over again.





If you hear some hick girl screaming
and/or singing in the background...
It's not me.
I repeat.
It's not me.

You and your friends all look great. You definitely pulled off the white shorts.

I'm super jealous that you saw NKOTB. I've never seen Donnie's abs, but boy do I wish I could see them. ;)

I have been dying to go to this concert since I heard about it and I decided that once I have a full time job I'm buying tickets and I'm going, even if I have to go across the country!!! I have been watching the NKOTB video "Summertime" incessantly and yes, Donnie's abs are fabulous and so is Danny!!! :D

Hannah @ The New Black said...

Woo hoo! Nice legs!! ☺

Kelly said...

ha! LOVE it! thanks for the blog post! I totally agree with you-- NKOTBSB was an awesome concert!

Karen Peterson said...

Great outfit.

Insanely jealous about the concert. No one wanted to go with me and I just couldn't go by myself.

Mighty M said...

Glad you clarified cause I totally thought it was you screaming! :) You girls look completely cute - way to rock the concert looks!

Megan said...

They all put on SUCH a great show! I just love watching the whole audience turn into little ten year old girls once the concert starts (and I am definitely guilty of this!). Glad you had a great time!

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

SO cute. I never went to see the as a kid and I dont' know if I ever will... that being said if my bestie from middle school said she had tickets I'd be there in a heartbeat to relive our youth and have a great time. Besides the boys have aged well and I still adore NKOTB!

You ladies looked amazing - definitely backstage and waffle house after party approved!
