Y’all, I won Mother’s Day this year. My mom has been a life-long Barry Manilow fan, and when I saw he was coming just 30 minutes from me for his last tour EVER!!!! (supposedly), I snagged us a couple of tickets and we went a couple weeks ago.
I must admit, I had low expectations for Barry. The guy is pretty old, and many aging singers don’t quite sound the same. But, he really sounded great and came across very sweet and humble. I genuinely enjoyed it.
Knowing you will be the youngest person in an entire arena is quite liberating – I could kinda wear whatever I want. And I did. I’ve had this sequin skirt in my closet for months and hadn’t found an opportunity to wear it. But, I figured the flash of Barry would allow for my sequins. So, I tamed it a little with the blazer, and a lot with the flats (I didn’t want to look like I was going to a post-work cocktail party), and was ready to go.
My mom and I had a great time. And you can obviously see where my love for dressing in patriotic colors come from.
What would you wear to see Barry Manilow…you know, if you were going to see Barry Manilow. Do you think my choice was appropriate, or not-really-but-no-one-paid-any-attention-to-me-so-what-does-it-matter? And didn’t I luck out in the gene pool?! Let me know your thoughts!
