If you follow my twitter or tumblr, you know that I’ve been looking forward to Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson’s exhibit at the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh. I finally got the chance to see it yesterday, and it was amazing! My favorite piece in the exhibit was “Song”—a performance work in which Kjartansson’s nieces resided for three weeks in the Carnegie’s Hall of Sculpture, repeatedly singing a short song the artist wrote (the source of this post’s title). I am crazy obsessed with performance art, and this piece was so good—haunting and warm and beautiful—and very evocative of that comforting feeling you get when you’re surrounded by people you love.
This outfit is pretty representative of what I’ve been wearing lately: cozy dresses, opaque tights, and my go-to heeled oxfords. Simple and easy. (Also, this dress is probably the shortest thing I’ve ever worn… I was surprised by how comfortable I was in it.)
