one of my favorite things about living in the city in the spring and summer is the opportunity to see live music. as i've gotten older, i've come to really appreciate the simple activity of watching and listening to musicians play. whether it's the symphony in Millennium Park, going to a jazz club, or checking out a band at a local bar, i'd pretty much be interested in all of it. it's also on my list to attend a real music festival sometime, if for no other reason than to access my inner boho girl and wear fun clothes that i maybe wouldn't wear in my day-to-day life. nothing crazy, of course, but something with a bit more life and vibrancy. although, i'd also be totally cool wearing all grey and black.
for me, any outfit that i'd consider wearing to watch live music or to a festival would start with the shoes. something comfortable, durable, and that would add a pop to my outfit. these sandals from DSW fit the bill perfectly. with a mix of pretty pinks, blues and yellows in a fun print, i can add a couple colored accessories and be good to go. paired with a simple black dress and lace crop top, i feel comfortable and like myself, with a little bit of something new and fun.
a few other ways to go with these sandals would be to pair them with joggers and a bright tank, a maxi dress and layered necklaces, or some ripped jean shorts and classic white tee. i'd pull in some boho accents with a fringe bag, a stack of mixed metal bangles, and a colored eyeliner. with any of these options, i would feel put together and ready to dance to the music!
