Well, everyone, I took all of your advice about what to wear to the country music festival last weekend into consideration…and I think I still failed miserably. Not that what I wore wasn’t cute. I just didn’t have on crochet shorts (because I bought a pair 3 years ago, so I’m tired of them now), or a kimono – so I wasn’t wearing what the other 20,000 or so girls were. Which could be good or bad, I suppose, depending on how you look at it.
Following an excellent suggestion from Jeana, and realizing that I didn’t really have any cute rompers despite my great love for them, I immediately went out and bought this lovely black and white number from Target. Paired with my hat, I felt very pretty…and more appropriate for a country club than a country concert. Also, I lost the shoes about an hour in and walked barefoot the rest of the day, which kinda put a damper on my look, but saved my feet. I always forget which shoes are actually comfortable – and which are definitely not.
This second look is a little more on-track. Every girl who wasn’t wearing crochet shorts was wearing American flag shorts. So, I fit in a little better on the second day of the festival. I didn’t love this outfit only because it’s a little more basic, which isn’t as fun for me personally. But, when it poured, I was grateful to be wearing something that would not get ruined by a little rain. (Side note, I did not wear my hat, because I ended up wearing my hair up, but I was very torn about that decision, so I thought I would give it a little air time here). As you likely surmised, I took these pictures after the fact; I’ll show you the action shots in just a moment. But, one last thought – as you know, I completely over-thought this whole picking out outfits thing. However, it was SUPER hot, we did sit on grass, and it did rain. So, really, all of my concerns happened, and I was glad not to have long sleeves, a short skirt, and soggy boots. Or a terrible sunburn.
Here is the day 1 look (or, as I like to call it, the one where I look like Casper):
And no full outfit shot for day 2, but here’s real life:
So, how did I do? I feel like there is still room to grow for next year, but at least now I know what to expect. Let me know what you think I should keep or change for next time!
