This weekend I am flying down to DC to visit a friend from camp. I am so excited to be back in DC, as it is one of my favorite cities. I am also thrilled to see my friend, especially because we live so far away don't get to see each other very often. One of the things that we will be doing over the weekend is going to a music festival. I love concerts, let's be real who doesn't? Despite this, there is one thing that I always struggle with, finding a "concert outfit". There are just some events in life where a pair of J. Crew chino shorts and a striped tee shirt won't fly. This summer I know that I will be attending at least three different concerts, and I need a few things to wear to them.  Crop tops are just not me. Also, not the biggest fan of ripped high wasted shorts, or the whole "hipster" thing in general. However, it is important to take a step out of your comfort zone and try something new every once and a while. I am sort of cringing at the fact that I am actually writing about this, but I will be wearing this top and these shorts to the concert this weekend and am excited to experiment with clothes I usually would not wear. I have tried them on together, I actually like the top because it is just barely cropped when I pair it with the shorts. This was a super random post, but I thought I would share my two sense on concert apparel as concert season is upon us. Do you struggle with finding clothes to wear to concerts?

  1. Hi Catherine. In all honesty, I'd probably go with the chino shorts & striped tee. In fact, I'd throw on a monogram necklace & Jacks just to top it all off. Don't change your style just to meet the expectations of an environment, especially if even writing about it makes you cringe. Just a thought! Hope you enjoy your concert!


  2. Personally I love the top you are planning on wearing, but you should wear something you like and something that doesn't make you cringe the whole weekend. While it is good to experiment sometimes, it is also important to be comfortable in what you are wearing or else you won't have as much fun at the concert.
