Attending Austin City Limits has always been on my bucket list, and after seeing this year’s line up I decided to finally do it. Three days of live music and endless Tex-Mex and barbecue was absolutely incredible. My favorite bands were the Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Killers, but I also enjoyed Jay-Z, Andrew McMahon, Martin Garrix, Ice Cube, Luke Combs, and many more!
Details about my day one outfit: I found this Free People dress at Nordstrom in a few colors, but of course had to have it in black. This dress fits a little large (wearing an extra small), so I recommend ordering a size smaller. I love the gold and red colors in the embroidery, so that I could wear this black dress with my new cowboy boots. I went on a serious hunt for the perfect brown boots, and thank goodness for Allen’s Boots on South Congress in Austin. They were extremely knowledgeable and helped me order these Grace boots directly from Lucchese. They fit true to size (wearing an 8 with a 7 toe) and were comfortable for most of the day. I will admit though, by the time I reached 20,000 steps for the day, these boots were really starting to take their toll. I recommend breaking them in well and even adding extra inserts before walking that far. To complete my festival look, I added this fringed Rebecca Minkoff purse and some layered chokers from Madewell.
Details about my day two outfit: I remembered seeing this Red Hot Chili Pepper tank at Nordstrom and knew I had to have it for Austin City Limits. This tank fits a little large under the arms (wearing a small) so I layered it with a Free People bralette for full coverage. It was perfect for the 90 degree heat we had in Austin and paired well denim shorts. These distressed Levi shorts have been my favorite denim shorts for a few summers now. They do not fit too tight (wearing a 25) and are long enough to feel comfortable moving around in. Since the cowboy boots ended up not being ideal for a full day of walking, I decided to switch to these Dolce Vita sneakers for the rest of Austin City Limits. They were much more comfortable, but this outfit looked so great with a pair of fringed leather booties.
Details about my day three outfit: This black O’Neill dress was too cute to pass up. It fits true to size (wearing a small) and was somewhat breathable in the heat. Since it is black it was a little hot, and there is a slip underneath that clung to me whenever I sat down. It paired well with these Dolce Vita sneakers that I decided I had to wear again for comfort and with layered necklaces. This dress looked great with my cowboy boots, which I will probably pair it when in the future when I am not walking as much. I had a blast at Austin City Limits and I highly recommend that everyone add it to their bucket list! xoxo
