Styling the Summer LBD

This is what I wore to see Coldplay in concert -- another thing I can check off my Summer Bucket List!   
For the concert (and another very hot day) I reached for my trusty black maxi dress (or what I like to call my summer LBD). I feel like I've gotten so much use out of this dress, but rarely wear it as a plain dress, but rather layer it with t-shirts and tank tops seen here and here. 
LBD's in any form are great because there are endless and limitless ways to style it. Which equals more wear and bang for your buck!
Here I made my summer LBD the blank canvas of the outfit and added a few acessories to create a fun look for a concert.

Outfit Details:
Maxi Dress: New York & Co // Leopard Sandals: Target // Necklace: Express
Purse: Michael Kors // Watch: Michael Kors // Bracelet: Tory Burch
Sorry for the boob shot!
On our way to the concert!
The light up bracelets they gave us as we entered the venue.
 And little did we know that they lit up to the music and created this amazing interactive light show. This was our incredible view of the stadium and the lights of every single person there!
 D and I were rockin' our bracelets like WHAT!
We had such a great time and left completely satisfied. Seeing Coldplay live was hands down the best concert I've been to EVER! And I'll definitely be seeing them again in the future : )

Have any of you seen a concert or band live that truly blew you away??

  1. You look so cute! Love this dress for a concert. I've seen the Goo Goo Dolls 4 times ( I used to be obsessed with them.) The last time I saw them was about 2 years ago (long over my obsession but I thought it would be a fun date night.) It was HORRIBLE. They stood on stage swearing like little high school boys and played all of their new crappy music. I think I was the only one (besides my husband) that sat there in sheer boredom. That was my last concert experience! Terrible huh?

  10. Perfect concert look and I love those sandals! Coldplay is a band I would LOVE to see live. When I was younger, I saw Muse and they really knocked my socks off. I got there hours early because the concert was standing room only and was so excited to get a spot right up front. Thanks for sharing!
