Country Music Festival: the Reveal

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.
1 - jump suit and floppy hatThis 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).  1 - Americana shorts, baseball capAs 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):

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
