Music Festival Must-Haves

If there is one thing I love more than food, it's live music. I can't ever seem to get enough, which would explain why I found myself in a club Monday night that is clearly more fit for ripe 20 year olds (who like knives and things) and not soon to be 30 year olds but whatever. Concert season is about to kick off in full effect and as I prepare to head to my favorite music festival, CMA Fest in Nashville this June, I thought it would be a good idea to share my music festival must-haves for this Summer.

Lets get this party started --

1. Outfits fit to sing and dance in..all day long. 
tee :: miss chic // shorts :: target

Because country is my music of choice, this tee was a no brainer. Well that and because cowboys. Frayed denim are always my go-to because if there is one thing my legs don't like being is hot and sweaty. Because they are all like "LET ME BREATHE WOMAN" I let them do just that. Choose your outfits wisely -- comfort and IG worthy should always be your two priorities when deciding ;)

2. Cheapo plastic sunglasses

You're at a music festival. People are spilling beer everywhere. Don't bring your Pradas into that mess. Find the cheapest pair of sunnies out there and wear em' to your hearts content. 

3. A phone that you can count on...all day(s) and night(s) long. 

I don't know about you but I'm kinda addicted to having my phone with me for any major life event (okay and in bed, at breakfast, and in the bathtub). Chances are you aren't going to be nearby any electrical outlets while dancing and singing your heart out and that's where the DROID Turbo Sapphire Blue has you covered. With its 48 hour battery (the largest of any smart phone), you can go a full two days without having to plug that sucker in. Combine that with it's durable (scratch and water resistent, say whaaaaaaaaaat) build and it makes it the ultimate music festival phone. I am super impressed with this piece of technology and can't wait to get my hands on one. Read more about the DROID Turbo Sapphire Blue smart phone here

4. Sunscreen and smell goods. 

Two things are to be sure when at a music festival - you will get sun and you will get sweaty. Don't be that stinky burnt girl that everybody laughs at (you know exactly what I'm talking about). Make sure to lather on the sunscreen and throw your favorite deodorant in your bag that you can re-apply and re-apply and re-apply. You get the picture.

5. Comfy shoes

Look, I get that heels make your legs look sexy, but in the wrong setting they also can make you look stupid. Break out the tried and true favorites of yours that you know you can handle standing and dancing in for hours on end. Flats are wear its at. Just sayin'.

6. Disinfectant wipes

Maybe I'm the only germ-a-phobe around these parts, but guess what folks? Music festivals aren't necessarily the cleanest of sorts. Have you ever gone to the bathroom in one of those pieces of plastic with four walls? Then you know exactly what I'm talking about. Throw some of these babies in your purse and you should be all set. Bathroom trips, spilled beverages, BBQ all over your hands, these will have ya covered.

And that concludes today's music festival must-haves. What would be on your list?

  1. erin you are just too cute! I would love to go to a music festival with you any day!

  2. I have yet to make it to country fest and I have a "Big Star" tee just dying to be broken in. Wish I could do cut-offs like you. My teenagers beg to differ. Fun round-up you crazy and cute festival goer you!!!
    P.S. Tell Cole Swindell can't wait to see his butt at our county fair in July!


  3. I met my husband at an outdoor country concert when we were in college. While I cant hang with that crowd anymore, I have some fabulous memories and I love festival inspired clothing! You look adorable!! I am styling the Love Yellow dress on my blog today. I wore it for Easter Sunday in Charleston! Susan


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
