You guys, I’m so tired. I’m nuts for still being awake at 2:56am (I am NOT good at staying awake late… for reals), but I guess that’s what a Dave Matthews concert can do to you. Plus, I didn’t wanna let y’all down with a blog post. So I’m doin’ this thing and then going to SLEEP.
I know I mentioned a bazillion times over the last month that I was going to Dave Matthews last night and it was AWESOME. Per usual. I mean, in my mind, there’s no such thing as a BAD Dave show. My only gripe was the encore was a LITTLE bit of a letdown… the whole set list was so strong and then the encore was sorta wah wah.
ANYWAY. This post is about WHAT TO WEAR TO AN OUTDOOR CONCERT!
It’s concert season! I love live shows. SO much. But, ESPECIALLY here in North Carolina, it gets REAL HOT, REAL QUICK and you start to sweat like crazy. Not cute. But I’ve gone to enough shows to know a few things about what works and what doesn’t for concert fashion.

SO, with that being said, here’s what I wore to the DAVE show last night:
[first, i will say i KNEW i was going to wear this dress but COULD NOT decide to wear teal or pink boots and necklace… i went with teal. but here’s what i used to help decide for your reference…]
[so, here’s the outfit i went with]
[i TOTALLY lucked out and got a SICK deal on this dress. it was an online exclusive dress for Target in that Webster collection and i found it on the clearance rack a month or so ago for $9! It was originally $40! YESSS!! But I loved that it’s cute, lightweight, doesn’t show sweat, breathable, AND i loved the back of the dress. That little open back part is so cute and I loved how it kept me cool in the hot sun at the show. BEST EVER.]
[JUST in case, i did bring my trusty white jean jacket if it got chilly. it did not. i left the jacket in the car. BUT, it looked cute so i thought i’d include it anyway].
[do y’all know how much i love my cowboy boots? A LOT].
[i went to the show with my friend Diana – Diana and I served together last summer on our mission trip to Kenya and I just LOVE this girl. Seriously. She is SO fab. And her dress was SO cute and I loved her necklace, too. Plus, she’s hilarious – this is us in the parking lot before the show].
[gotta get an AT the show pic]
[this was a creeper photo i took for my friend janeberry. hahaha]
[terrible quality photo of dave. that’s what you get for watching from the lawn].
[and… this is the dress in action. that’s me dancing. don’t judge. you know you dance at concerts, too! i mean, it’s MUSIC for pete’s sake. that’s what you do, you dance. but yeah, this dress was PERFECT for dancing. even if i’m not the greatest dancer in the world.]
So yeah, what do you think? What do you love to wear to concerts? Do you have any DOs and DON’Ts of concert fashion? Learned anything along the way?
xoxo, all for now.
