Ready Set Roll

It's only Thursday, but it feels like it should be the weekend--mainly because I actually have plans for this Labor Day weekend!

Josh and I are road tripping to see Chase Rice, The Eli Young Band, and Waterloo Revival (tbh I've never heard of them, but nonetheless still super excited) for the Downstream Music Festival!!!



I honestly never thought Josh would be a country music fan--he certainly wasn't when we first started dating almost seven years ago. But, one of our favorite artists (as of now) is Chase Rice and when tickets are only $30, you don't ask questions. You take the road trip!

I ordered this dress specifically for the concert probably a month in advance and have been bugging Josh about what he's going to wear ever since. I plan THAT much ahead and well, he doesn't.




Shop the same/similar looks below!
It's my first off the shoulder piece and I'm obsessed. How did I hold off on this trend for so long?! My favorite part about the dress besides the cutout details, is that you can dress it up with wedges or heels (like I did here) or dress it down (I'm wearing it with cowboy boots this weekend) AND it was only $20 shipped!

Also, I'm obsessed with this color blue! And since it doesn't get to feeling like ACTUAL fall weather around here until mid-October, I have plenty of time to get some wear out of it!

  1. That style isn't for everyone (read: myself), but you're absolutely rocking it! Your skin looks great in that color, too! It must be cobalt blue or is it not?
