What To Wear To A Country Concert

…If you’re a huge poser like me.

One of Tristan’s life dreams is to go to a Garth Brooks concert and in just two short weeks, that dream will come true! I’m not a huge country fan, though I can get excited about country if there’s a concert or road trip involved. When in Rome, as they say.

Given my obsession with theme dressing, I took to Google and Pinterest to find outfit ideas. The requirements were that it couldn’t be too country and also couldn’t be super bare, since it’s not summer. The latter was the major challenge – most of the outfits were definitely for summer concerts. Like this cute round-up, for instance.

I found a few inspiring looks on Pinterest before hitting the jackpot: Free People’s blog. More Western, less cowboy.

I also referred to Facebook to check out my friend Cassie’s concert outfits. Cassie Correlle is a country artist and has been singing/songwriting since I met her in high school. She’s got some darling outfits that aren’t too country or too bare.

My research culminated in this outfit, for which I have secured all of the pieces. I purchased similar shorts and the kimono at Ross, I bought the boots last year at Buffalo Exchange, and the belt I found on Etsy. I have burgundy and gold dangly earrings (but aren’t the little tassels perfection!?). I will be wearing nude tights to help with warmth. What do you think?!
