Had some friends throw us some tickets to see Mellencamp at Ravinia Festival last night. I for one was feeling like a truck hit me full on, but I powered through and made it to the festival. After a forgotten picnic bag, squeezing in between blanket-to-blanket festival goers, waiting in line for food to replace our forgotten goodies, "No, don't want cheese on my vegan burger...," purchasing wine & wine glasses while having to bower a bottle opener from our "neighbors" on the blanket next to us; we managed to have a magical night. Nothing like grunging it up for "Hurts so Good."
But in the melee, I thought almost too late to have Fred snap a picture of my festival wear. Flare jeans were a must, concert black, knit tie dye duster (tied around waist), cross body bag with scarf tied on in case the Chicago weather turns cool, and military style hat to complete the look.
What did you wear to your last concert? Just curious.
And in case you missed the concert, here's some classic Mellencamp for you.
