Over the last few days Chris and I have been bombarded with “What Do I Wear!!!” texts for Canadian Country Music Week here in Edmonton – and I feel so honored that you guys are asking us!!
Ladies – First of all – Breathe!!! CCMA Fashion is the BEST kind because its not stuffy. Its pretty, fun, a little more casual and (my fav) bling-y ! Basically if you love it – Wear It! The best advice Ive heard all week is “Pretend You Are Going To A Country Music Concert… “. What you wear to that – you wear to the CCMA awards.
Ive grouped my outfit suggestions by events – so lets have some fun!
If you’re headed to the Rock n Country Cabaret on Friday night at the Shaw Conference Centre there are a couple of options….
Be a little more casual in some jeans and a cute top – and of course your boots!
Rhinestones on your jeans are the best! And anything lace! These Jeans are from Lammles – they have some awesome ones if you need them!
If you want to dress up just a tad – a perfect option for the Rock n Country Cabaret would be a jean dress and boots!
Or….since its the ROCK n Country Cabaret – why not go all out and go ROCK….. This super bling belt is also from Lammles !
Ok ! Lets move onto FAN FEST! This is happening Saturday at the Shaw Conference centre from 11-3. Its more of the family friendly event.
A cute dress that’s comfy is perfect for this event. Pair it with some wedges that are comfy ( fan fest is BIG! That means lots of walking) or of course your boots and you are good to go!
Accessories are SUPER important for the entire week. Anything with a country flair is perfect – birds, feathers, horse shoes etc . I live by ” The Bigger The Better! “. Big earrings are very forgiving and look great on almost anyone. Plus isn’t that what country is all about?? GO BIG!
Belts are a great idea too when you want to add SOMETHING but are not quite sure what….
(Both from Lammles)
Lastly – we have the all important AWARD SHOW! If you have one of the highly coveted tickets to this Sunday’s CCMA award show – consider yourself lucky!
As for what to wear…..I always go on the fancier side (a dress and boots) but any of the above outfits will work as well. This is one GREEN carpet where Jeans are A-OK! Maybe not your ripped ones though. Jeans and a cute country top will take you very far at the award show!
Here are some dress ideas if you want to go that way! This dress is my FAV. It reminds me of something that Jep (From Duck Dynasty) ‘s wife Jessica would wear. She wore something similar in Yellow in this seasons premiere
Or this is a great option to wear with boots! And its super comfy!
Last but not least – SHOES. Make sure you have one solid pair of cowboy boots in your wardrobe – you cant go wrong and they do seriously go with everything!
If the boots aren’t your thing – wedges (the green ones below) are a great option because they don’t hurt your feet as much usually.
And anything super- country ( even granny – ish as bob likes to put it!) will work. Floral heels and bows are the best! Any sassy country girl (Think Pistol Annies) can pull this off no problem!
Well – I hope I helped you ladies out a bit when deciding what to wear this weekend! Im sure you all will look great and Im so looking forward to saying hi and chatting with everyone!! Have a GREAT Canadian Country Music Week here in Edmonton!
