I’m going to a Tom Petty concert tomorrow with two of my best friends. I couldn’t be more excited because A) I haven’t seen any of my New York friends in months and B) I’m a sucker for 80s jams. There’s no denying that Tom Petty is a cornerstone of classic American throwbacks, but he’s not one of my faves. American Girl is OBVIOUSLY a Pretty Patriot anthem, but I’m much more so of a Fleetwood Mac/Hall & Oates/Men At Work kinda girl. So I’ve been trying to learn the words to the hits for the last few days so I don’t look like a complete idiot. We’ll see how that goes.
The friends I’m going with are guys, which is fun because, let’s be real; guys are more fun to drink with. You might have to prevent a fight, but no one ends the night drunk crying. The downside of going to a concert with guys is deciding what to wear because guys don’t care.
“What are you wearing?”
My wardrobe is mostly preppy but with a good amount of eccentric and trendy pieces. But I don’t have a lot of clothes that exactly scream “Tom Petty concert” or any classic rock concert for that matter.
It should come as no surprise that I care (probably too much) about presentation, so I’m thinking wayyyy too hard about what I’ll be wearing. But in my defense, I’ve barely gone out this summer and I want to look good! So I’ve gone through my entire dresser and closet in search of something that won’t make me look like a suburban mom trying to get her groove back tomorrow night. Basically, I grabbed anything that wasn’t the color of an Easter egg.
This is what I’ve been able to come up with. (Sorry for the low quality photos; still haven’t made that iPhone 7+ update and didn’t feel like asking my mom to take pictures of me with my DSLR)
