Folk band style (is the best)

If the interweb, album covers, and music magazines are to be believed, folk bands just have the best style. They no doubt thrift most of their most excellent finds, and they all seem to be able to pull together a whimsical, on-trend, interesting outfit with a certain nonchalance and ease.

My wifi had completely abandoned me this week and without it, it was pretty near impossible to post to the blog.
