What to Wear to a Country Concert: Faster Horses Roundup

Tuesday, July 25, 2017




I'll always remember Monday, July 24th, as the day I experienced the worst hangover ever... but that being said, this past weekend was amazing and I definitely deserved the hangover. I went into this weekend not knowing what to expect but nevertheless, still excited to meet new people and reunite with the Soap & Glory gals. The big "first world problem" I faced preparing for the festival was figuring out what to wear because I couldn't find anything on Pinterest for inspiration. The only thing I had to go off of was Lauren B's IG feed from Stagecoach. So I felt like I would compile an Instagram roundup of what I wore to Faster Horses this past weekend in Michigan so you guys can use it for inspiration as to what to wear to your next country concert this summer!

Unfortunately, Faster Horses wouldn't let Cody bring in his DSLR camera for blog photos, so that's why these are all iPhone pictures! I did my best for you guys still! Also, thanks again Soap and Glory for being amazing hosts and making another festival happen for me! I love working with such an amazing & friendly company.




First picture op was obviously outside of the airport because I just had to be basic! I mean are you even flying if you don't get the basic-blogger-outside-the-airport-with-suitcases pic?

Cody and I arrived at the lake house around 8pm on Thursday and we immediately went to the lake to enjoy the sunset while drinking a nice cold beer. Honestly, it was my first time ever trying Blue Moon and I am definitely a fan now. I can't believe I've never had it! I managed to have Cody snap a picture of my outfit just before the sun fully set. You guys might remember this set from my Bonnaroo pictures, well I guess I'm an outfit repeater! I've found the lemon print on sale at Zappos for a fraction of the retail Mumu price!

Top: Blue Life || Shorts: Forever 21 || Boots: Old Gringo (similar) || Hat: Lack of Colors || Belt: B-Low the Belt 

The rest of the house arrived Friday morning and we all got to know each other over a glass (or two) of wine. I'm not a wine drinker but I am trying to be a wine drinker... I feel like since I'm 24, I should maybe broaden my palette. We headed to the first day of Faster Horses just in time to catch Jon Pardi, my second favorite country singer. He was AMAZING live as expected. My outfit was almost identical to what I wore the final night at the festival but still, I loved it! I am clearly obsessed with Blue Life recently. My poor wallet.


Saturday was filming day with Soap & Glory at the Soaper Station. I wore a gingham set in the AM that I am doing an entire post on but when I wrapped my first shoot of the day and went back to the lake house before our 5pm call time, I switched outfits! I think this might be my favorite outfit I wore. This romper by Show Me Your Mumu is so flattering and hid the fact that I was incredibly bloated since I was on my period (lucky me, periods at festivals are so fun...) Soap & Glory actually sent me these pink cowboy boots and they matched my headband perfectly. Such a comfy and cute outfit! Cammie and I filmed all around the festival with S&G, so many drunk people tried to photobomb the scenes but I guess that's inevitable at a country music festival where people drink more beer than water. I peaced out when we wrapped the shoot for the day because I am not much of a Miranda Lambert fan, so my boyfriend and I hit up the local BBQ restaurant. It was delicious.

Swimsuit: Chaser || Float: Bloomingdales || Shorts: Forever 21

Since all the "work" was finished by Saturday night, we decided to have a grill out before the festival on Sunday with the entire house. It was probably one of my favorite memories from the entire weekend. It made me so happy to be around just genuinely good people. We had vegetables, hot dogs and lots of watermelon... and watermelon soaked in vodka. Classy broads, I know. Sunday was the only day we really had to enjoy the lake so I utilized the flamingo float for an IG, of course!

I almost wore the swimsuit as a bodysuit for one of the days because it looks good tucked into high waisted jean shorts. I didn't expect myself to love this swimsuit as much as I ended up loving it. I've worn it so many times recently and I always get compliments on it. You can't really go wrong with it.

Top: Zara (similar) || Shorts: Forever 21 || Belt: B-Low the Belt || Boots: Jeffrey Campbell || Hat: Lack of Colors

Sunday was the day I was looking forward to most during the festival because the lineup was amazing. I mean c'mon, Brett Eldredge was playing... enough said. But also Old Dominion and Luke Bryan were performing! I'm not the biggest Luke Bryan fan but he always puts on a good show and you find yourself knowing all the words to all his songs. Brett was so damn good though. He even brought his dog on stage for a minute so my heart melted a little bit. Thankfully Cody understands my Brett obsession and was jamming out right beside me! I threw this outfit together last minute and it all worked out. It was actually a top from a set I purchased at Zara! I feel like you can't go wrong with gingham at a country concert.

In case you can't tell, I am overwearing my circle black raybans, so I think it's about time I invest in a new different pair! What kind of sunglasses do you think I need to add to my collection? Hmmm... Anyway, I should have the vlog that goes with this blog post live this Thursday so get excited for that! I did a pretty decent job at vlogging so I am excited to get back to Nashville so I can edit it for you guys!!!

What was your favorite outfit I wore at Faster Horses? I'd love to hear in the comments below.

  8. Your outfits are so cute, you were probably the most stylish and put together person at Faster Horses. I wish I could have met you last weekend. You seriously know how to dress, and I wish I owned half the clothes in your closet!

  10. Glad you had such a great time in the mitten state! I've personally never been to Faster Horses but I know everyone who goes absolutely loves it. My favorite outfit of yours was hands down the white SMYM romper with the pink cowboy boots - it like mixed country chic with some boho vibes.

    Loved this post!
