Happy Sunday! Hope everyone is enjoying their last bit of down time before heading back into work tomorrow. Yesterday, my friends and I attended the FREE Global Citizen Earth Day festival on the National Mall, and let me tell you, it didn’t disappoint! Free, amazing, concerts like this are why I love living in DC!
So, let me set the scene for everyone who didn’t attend. It was a sunny 81, degrees outside. Since I’m still in 60-70 degree spring weather mode, I figured my long-sleeved romper would be fine, since my legs would be out. It ended up being a little too warm for those sleeves, but thankfully it got breezy later, so it was all good. Most people had on shorts, and the fashion was overall very music festival chic (read: Coachella, barely). I feel like sunny, spring days like this are the perfect motivation to get your fitness game together before summer gets here!
The concert was hosted by Soledad O’Brien, and Will.I.Am. The purpose was to raise awareness of environmental issues, poverty, and movements to combat these issues. The line-up involved No Doubt, Usher (w/a special guest performance from Common), Fall Out Boy, Mary J Blige, Train, and My Morning Jacket. I was mainly there for my two baes, Usher, and Common. We arrived when Mary J. Blige was performing, so I’m not completely sure of the order, however I know Usher and Common performed second to last, and No Doubt closed the show, lol. Usher and Common performed “Glory” together, and it was amazing. Usher also performed “Yeah”, and “OMG”, while Common performed “The Light”. You couldn’t tell me nothing during those performances y’all. No Doubt performed their hits, and had my friends and I feeling like we were back in middle/high school! Hey baby, hey baby, hey!
We were too far away for me to really get pictures of the performers, but here are the few pics that I snapped of my crew. Shout out to Andy who came later and didn’t make the pics.
In case you wanted to know the dets of my outfit:
Can’t wait for the next one! I’d love to hear what everyone else did for Earth Day (or over the weekend in general) below!
