I have a bad habit of making plans so far in advance that I completely forget about them.
Tell me, am I the only one that does this?!
Last year, I purchased tickets to see Maroon 5 and between the 8+ month advance purchase, a concert date rescheduling (congrats to Adam Levine + Behati on baby Dusty Rose) and just general hectic life, I completely forgot about the concert date until only a few days ago!
To be honest, I wasn’t THAT upset when the reminder popped up on my phone, although I can’t remember the last time I had a late, party night on a Wednesday. I’m thinking I can power through. I’m also thinking about what I’m going to wear.
You know, the important stuff.

Shop the Look:
Suede Moto Jacket // Hooded Sweatshirt (I love shopping the men’s department for cute finds — I wear an XS!) // Jeans // Boots // Crossbody Bag // Eye Makeup Palette // Lipstick // Silver Cuff // Earrings
Deciding what to wear to a concert is all about balancing comfort with style. You want to be comfortable enough to spend hours on your feet, but still look cute, right? I mean, how else is Adam Levine going to fall in love with you!?
Just kidding. Kind of.
A Few Style Notes:
You might recall I posted about those adorable STUDDED BOOTS a few days back. I recently pulled the trigger and ordered them in the nude/tan shade. I figured they would make a nice addition to my boot collection and the lighter, softer tone would be a good balance to all of the tough, edgy studding and straps. I think the lighter color will also pair well with some of my spring and summer dresses — I cannot wait to wear THIS ONE again!
(If you’re considering ordering a pair of the booties for yourself — HURRY! Sizes are selling out FAST!)
Next, since the concert is indoors and in rather tight quarters, I wouldn’t recommend any oversized or bulky outerwear. A BLACK SUEDE MOTO jacket is the perfect companion to the boots and would look adorable layered over a street style inspired HOODIE SWEATSHIRT.
Finally, to give the outfit a dash of girly glam, my favorite YSL METALLIC CROSSBODY BAG is coming with me. I love throwing in unexpected pieces into the mix — and a fancy bag with this low-key outfit somehow works! Most important of all, crossbody is key. Any concert requires hand free ease… you know, so you can easily hold your adult beverage.
Is anyone else going to see Maroon 5?! I might just see you there.
