This weekend, my husband and I went to see Eric Church. We are BIG country music fans … judge me all you want, but I will SHAKE IT to some twangy country music!!
It is always difficult for me to choose what to wear to a concert. On one end, I love the country feel … a good plaid/flannel shirt … cowboy boots … cowboy hat … really makes you feel excited. The problem is, most of those are things I don’t wear on a daily basis. They are just not … ‘me’ … you know what I mean? I like to wear things that suit the experience, while at the same time are still true to my personal style.
For this country concert, I wore a shirt dress, light military style jacket, and boots. I felt like it was dressed up enough to make it feel like date night, comfortable enough to be standing all night at the concert and I didn’t feel ‘theme-y’ where I was self-conscious about how I looked.
The dress … oh my goodness, this dress is so comfortable and flattering!! It’s one of those shirt dresses that is forgiving and baggy, while at the same time giving you some shape. It is not just a tent, it has curves, but it’s not hugging every dimple of cellulite my kids gave my booty!
If you follow me on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/tshirtsandtantrums/), then you probably saw my post on Friday about my St. Patrick’s Day outfit. I absolutely LOVE the military jacket I wore. It is such a great color of green, which really compliments any complexion. I love the length too … it is long enough to wear with leggings and a longer tank/t-shirt, and short enough to wear with jeans. That is a tricky length to find in a jacket and this one delivers … BIG TIME!
JACKET (currently on sale – I wear a size small and find it to be TTS)
I chose my GO TO Frye boots … these are just the best boots! They are so comfortable, that after walking to the concert … standing all night … and walking to our car after … they never caused my feet to cramp or feel uncomfortable … SO glad I own these, and I am hoping to buy the black pair soon!!
BOOTS (I wear a 6.5 typically and wear a 6 in these)
For accessories and jewelry … I went with simple gold. I ADORE Gorjana jewelry … it is one of my favorites!! Simple … classic … understated …and beautiful. All things that SPEAK to me!!
NECKLACE (this is adjustable … and it is my favorite!! I found it at the Nordstrom sale … sorry it’s not still marked down, but it is worth it full price too!)
PURSE (I wore this in the Linen color, which is SO flattering to everyone … sadly, I can only find it online in this pretty blue color, which would be so perfect for Easter!)
It was an incredible night with some amazing friends … and Eric was one of my favorite concerts to DATE!!
What about you … what are your concert staple outfits? Any suggests for what to wear when I go to Nashville in May??
