Calling all southern sweethearts! The summer season is here, and if you’re anything like this Fashionista, you know what that means: COUNTRY CONCERTS! It’s time to dig those cowboy boots out of your closet and get ready to party. A lot of us college students are back in our hometowns for the summer, and we don’t necessarily have all the freedom we do when we’re away at school. It can be a pretty weird adjustment getting used to living on your own and then coming back home and having to follow your parent’s rules again, am I right? For others, like myself, coming home for the summer means working, working, working… college definitely doesn’t pay for itself (I wish). All things set aside, concerts give us an opportunity to have some fun with friends and let loose!

While it is only natural for us girls to want to look cute for concerts, we have to keep in mind that it is summer, and it is hot. Not to mention, no one goes to a concert without getting so excited they start sweating bullets, but don’t worry. There is always a way to dress accordingly while still staying true to your own personal style.

This Fashionista is letting her inner country-girl shine through. While sporting the signature southern look of denim, the dress stays on trend with the lace-up detail. It is lightweight and airy, allowing this Fashionista to stay comfortable in the heat while singing and dancing the night away. Of course, her shoes of choice were not up for debate; cowboy boots, what else? Don’t bother worrying about this pair of Frye boots getting stepped on in all the madness. These babies are genuine leather and guaranteed to withstand the test of time. To top off her look, this Fashionista accessorized with her go-to gold Alex and Ani bangles, making sure not to forget the most appropriate—the cowboy boot. She layered these with a double-wrap studded bracelet to compliment her leather boots. On the other wrist, she is wearing a gold Michael Kors bangle with rhinestones, which accentuates its matching watch. This Fashionista will definitely stand out in the crowd!

One Simple Change: Have some errands to run or a busy day to conquer before you make it to the concert? Try switching out the cowboy boots with a pair of strappy sandals or wedges for a more versatile, everyday look.
