Fashion for a Tuesday: Rocking Out (Or Not)

In our early college days, it wasn't uncommon for us to be making the 1 1/2 hour trek to Austin or Houston at least once a month to go see a show. We just love live music. It's always been a huge part of our relationship & our lives.

The first big show C took me to was the Austin City Limits Music Festival, back in 2005. (Fall of our Senior year of HS) At the time, he had 3 rules for what I was allowed to wear:
1) Nothing white
2) No skirts
3) Nothing with a band's name on it

Basic Concert Wear

What I Wore to Shows in HS/College
Basic Concert Wear by amyrenepowell featuring linen tops

Simple & easy. I followed the rules and ended up with a pretty laid-back concert "uniform" (as you can see above). This simple black T-shirt, jeans & Converse combo was my best friend, and I probably stuck to it in some form or fashion through most of college.

Of course, over the years the rules changed a little bit. As we grew up, we began to stand farther away from the mosh pit & closer to the edge (also conveniently closer to the bar). And my wardrobe began to change a bit. I added a bit more color and definitely put the studded belt to rest. (Though I admit to missing it occasionally)

What I'd Wear Today

And now we're going to our first show in ages tomorrow night and I'm starting to plan the outfit: Comfy, functional, but also cute. So I'll probably wear something like the above outfit. I really love flannel with a big belt ♥

What do you think... simple yet cute? Or should I try something else? What do you wear to shows/concerts?


  1. I love the shirt with the bow detail. Totally cute! I think it's perfect.

  2. Perfect outfit for the show!! And I love the addition of the red solo cup ha!!! Made my day.

    1. I was waiting for someone to notice that :)

  3. Perfect! Flats are a must at concerts IMO, especially if they're standing room only.

  4. a red solo cup is the perfect accessory to ANY outfit!!

    i miss you!!


  5. Lol I grew up going to punk shows and it was all about wife beaters, Dickies, and Old Skool Vans.

    I still pretty much wear the same thing to shows, except jeans instead of Dickies lol :)

  6. Haha, I'm turning 29 soon & I still wear the clothes from the first outfit! Well, all except the belt & bracelets. The jeans, black shirt & converse is my definitely my go-to outfit for everything since I can always semi-dress it up with a cute necklace & earrings.

    As you can probably tell I'm not a dress up kind of gal. Although I'm totally diggin' your second outfit, minus the bow shoes ;)

  7. Today I'd go with the second outfit, too. ;) Haha! I exactly wore the first outfit years ago...and sometimes I still feel like I should be walking around like that...hmmmm...I blame it on the inner child lingering in me. ;)
