It’s been a crazy last few weeks with work and graduations, but I finally found the time to go through all of the memories from this year’s Stagecoach shenanigans. Being at a music festival is an experience in it of itself and although I always have a blast, I find myself craving the intimacy between artists and fans at smaller venues.
Because a festival is so spread out, it’s hard to capture the essence of being in the moment – the artist’s passion, your own emotions. So rather than doing a regular snapshots post, I thought I’d share some of my weekend wears for those of you looking for some inspiration at your next country concert. Here’s a recap of my outfits of the days at Stagecoach:
Day one was a day of anticipation, the day we had been waiting for for the past year. I, unlike, many of my friends actually went into work for a half-day since it was a co-worker’s birthday and I had coordinated the shindig.
Luckily, taking the back roads to Indio through the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains got us there just in time to see my must-see’s for the day: Brothers Osborne, Parmalee, Kacey Musgraves, Merle, Kip Moore, Jake Owen and Tim McGraw. The weather was warm, but not overbearingly hot so I opted for this vintage denim jumpsuit paired with fringe boots and a bikini top.
Day two was a bit chillier than day one but not wanting to lug around a jacket all day, I braved the wind. Turns out, it wasn’t so bad. I just had to drink more. On my to-do list for the day (yes, I’m that kind of person) was to hit the rest of the pop up shops, visit the Toyota Tent, check out my friend DJ Hish in the Honky Tonk and of course, catch all of these talents: Clare Dunn, Cassadee Pope, Eli Young Band, ZZ Top, Justin Moore, Dierks and Miranda.
I rocked out in some denim cutoffs, the softest concert tee ever from License to Boot (which I got lots of compliments on!), boots and a handy belt buckle I had gotten from a vendor the day before, which has a nifty slot for ID, cards and money.
Outfit: Whiskey Bent & Hellbound Tank (also comes in black) from License to Boot . Lace denim shorts (old) from American Eagle. Belt buckle from vendor (if I find the name, I’ll update with a link!). Corral Honey Fango Boot from Country Outfitter.
Before we knew it, the weekend was coming to a blazing end. No really, it was HOT. The heavy-hitting lineup had us there all day sweatin’ in the heat, but it was worth it to see these guys tear up the stage: The Swon Brothers, Keith Anderson, Frankie Ballard, Jerrod Niemann, George Thorogood and The Destroyers, and Blake Shelton.
Dancing out in the desert in this red bow crop top and high-waisted cutoff combo definitely brought out the sweat. I almost ditched the boots for the day but decided against that idea at the last minute and sprayed some extra sunscreen on my legs and hoped for the best.
Outfit: Maroon bow front crop top from one of those cheap obscure stores in the mall. Bleach wash denim cutoffs from Forever21.
