I went to the Dave Matthews Band concert in Raleigh this week! I was SO excited… for many reasons. 1) Seeing Dave this summer was on my summer goal list and I am able to check it off… I haven’t seen Dave live in over two years and so I was majorly due. 2) I got to go with my friend Amy from Coffee Beans and Bobby Pins and it was a blast getting to hang out with her for the night. She is awesome.
Apologies for the MASSIVE wrinkles in my shirt… It was hot outside. Like, really hot. And my shirt wrinkled. You know, because I was wearing it. I will not, however, apologize for my paleness. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again… I’m pale. I don’t tan. I burn. So I wear a lot of sunscreen to protect my fair skin. That’s just how it goes these days. Sue me. 🙂
Anyway, this ensemble is what I wore to the show. I always struggle with deciding what to wear to an outdoor concert… because you know it’s going to be hot and you know you’re going to sweat, but you also want to look cute and put together. I also prefer wearing cowboy boots to concerts because that way my feet don’t get all wet and covered in grass on the lawn AND so I don’t get a ton of mosquito bites around my ankles. This is a legitimate concern of mine. Haha!
I am in LOVE with this personalized bar necklace from 9th and Elm. It is just gorgeous and I love having Lilly’s name around my neck all day.
On a separate side note… I don’t know why I even bothered to curl my hair before the show. It is SO dang humid! I went outside and boom… hair went flat in like 2 seconds. Oh well. At least I tried!
Me and Amy outside waiting to get into the show. Love this girl!What about you? Have you been to any concerts lately? What do YOU like to wear to an outdoor concert? What’s your go-to attire?
