What to Wear: Country Festival

Boho friends, I need help! Or, really, anyone who’s ever been to a music festival, particularly a country one.  I’m going to Shaky Boots this weekend, a big country festival near Atlanta, and I literally have NO idea what to wear.

I’ve been to a billion country concerts, so I know what to wear to those.  But this is all day, and it’s going to be super hot.  Plus, I feel like a festival brings in another element of style expectations.  I want to look cute, but I’m also supposed to be casual and young, wild, and free, right?

Since I’m not really any of those things, I’m at a bit of a loss.  Here are a couple of outfits I wore recently that while not exactly right, might be on the right track.  Maybe.

In this first one, I like two things: shorts and the scarf headband.  Probably not these shorts or this scarf, but the concept works.

1 - shorts, scarf headbandIn this one, I’m in love with the skirt.  It’s got a tribal flavor which seems appropriate for a festival, but the fit and flare still match my personality.  Of course the scarf would not go with me; I’d like to not die of heat stroke.
1 - tribal print skirt, infinity scarfSo, what do you think?  Am I headed in the right direction or way off track?  What would you wear to a music festival?   Let me know soon; I’ve got less than 48 hours to pack, and at this rate, I’ll probably need every single one of those.  Thank you! xoxo


  1. I vote option #1. Loveeeee that skirt, but with shorts you won’t have to worry about accidentally bending the wrong way, blowing in the wind, etc. Plus, I dig the headband.

    I would just be mindful of the top you wear juuustttt in case you sweat. I don’t know if you’re a sweater, but sweatstains would put a damper on your trendy outfit. 🙂

      I hadn’t even thought about sweat stains, Christen! Yes, you’re right; that could be a little embarrassing! 🙂 And I think you’re right about the skirt, too. Sitting on the lawn in a cute little mini skirt could be difficult..and also potentially embarrassing! Ha.
