A Reason Why My Nephew is So Darn Good

Truth be told, I have a darn smart nephew. He knows what's good, and he knows how to enjoy himself. Lately, it's been by helping his mom channel her recently found adoration for the musical pleasures of Brandi Carlile. Nice threads, kid!

The Nephew, channeling Brandi Carlile's style full force

Don't see the commonality? Behold:

See how smart he is? He knows true credit to any good style icon can only be given by not simply copying their style, but instead by making it your own--taking what you can learn from them and reinterpreting it in the way that works for you. (That red car in his right hand there counts as his blankee, in case you were wondering. So while Brandi here still carries a blanket around with her, the nephew carries his car.)

If you haven't fallen in love with Brandi Carlile yet, turn the volume up on your computer and play this. There's a couple of you I share this song with, you know who you are. I love you.
