Inspired By: The Steve Miller Band

Photobucket

The Steve Miller Band is classified as country to some, maybe even folk. But I consider SMB to be straight-up 70's rock with an alfalfa twist. The perfect music to blast from your iPod as you cruise down the open-road.

That said, I had to make SMB part of my road-trip music (along with a heavy dose of The Eagles, Dire Straights and...Elton John?), and it wasn't until a few months ago when I heard his Greatest Hits that I realized how many songs I already knew and recognized....

Swington, Jungle Love, Jet Airliner, Take the Money and Run, Fly like an Eagle, The Joker ("Some people call me Maurice *whistle*"), to name but a few.

Of course, you'll probably recognize the scarf and belt from my previous post. Did I get up that morning with Steve Miller on my mind? No, in fact, this is the same day as my previous post, I just changed out of the green dress since I was tired of flashing my butt to everyone everytime the wind gusted up.
But as we cruised along back country-roads while listening to Rock'n Me ("I went from Phoenix, Arizona, all the way to Tacoma..."), I looked down at my maxi and thought, yup this seems right.

i keep seeing those maxi dresses and thinking i can't pull them off - i'm kinda square-shaped, i need some structure to my dresses - but sticking a belt on it is a GREAT idea!!

how that dress sits on the upper body is very flattering on you. and the peacock tail picture should be made into an oversized print and hung on a bedroom wall.
