Coachella Meets Dierks Bentley

With my summer-is-coming-to-an-end anxiety setting in full force, I have been frantically making sure I’ve covered all of the things on my Summer 2014 Bucket List*. In doing this strenuous examination of consciousness, I realized that I have not given myself sufficient opportunity to pretend like I was at a festival. Laugh all you want, but it is definitely a “thing.” As you can imagine, this dilemma was really weighing on my mind. I had to take some sort of action to prevent my FOMO* from getting any worse. I understaaaand that Richmond isn’t exactly the festival capital of the world or anything, but we do have a prettttttty solid outdoor concert scene. So we don’t have an actual festival for me to go to? Details. A girl has got to work with what she’s got, ya know? Taking care of business, I took it upon myself to rally up my lady friends (most of the guys opted out aka missed out) for a Coachella themed Dierks Bentley concert last night. Sounds like a case of polar opposites mostly because they are, but minus the blisters from my boots & the lingering hangover – it was a helluva time. Richmond girls need an excuse to drink a few cold ones and wear a festival-esque outfit just as much as everyone else. So I guess what I am trying to say is Dierks, if you are reading this, thanks for giving me the opportunity to pretend and more importantly, dress like I was at a festival. You are a peach.

Alas, my pretend festival outfit: Free People Eyelash slip, Sheer plaid shirt (similar here), Cowboy boots (similar here), Chanel bag, Dogeared Lotus NecklaceTassel NecklaceStone Age BanglesAlex and Ani Om bracelet, & Free People phone case .

My boots (top right) were so cute before they inflicted pain on me in the form of blisters.
