Ah ! The CCMA awards are almost here! That means…..you’re probably starting to think… “What the HECK do I wear”. Well not to worry! I have some great ideas that I swear won’t cost you that much…in fact you may already have the stuff in your closet!
First things first- lets take on the Jiffy Lube Fan Fest happening 11am – 4pm on Saturday at West Edmonton Mall in the Ice Palace! With performers like Lindsay Ell ( Who has the best hair in the business) , Dean Brody, Brett Kissel and Paul Brandt – this is going to be one great event. Its at the mall – so you dont want to get TOO dressed up – but its an event so you dont want to look sloppy either.
Here are some cute ideas:
Opt for something still pretty but a little less formal. Flow-y tops and big belts are a great option. Sweaters are very September . Boots are always comfy and suit this perfectly.
One of the best things about Canadian Country Music Week here in Edmonton is all the fun going on at the bars in the city! From The Ranch Roadhouse to Cook County to Knoxvilles – these places know how to keep the party going all WEEK long! If you’re headed out – here are some deas…..and a few things to keep in mind : It usually gets a little hot in all bars so wavy hair works great – it gets cuter as the night goes on! Also note: the length of your jean shorts is up to you haha!
Now to SUNDAY – the big day here in Edmonton!
There is the CCMA Awards Countdown Concert at Rexall from 1pm -3pm. Its a great event and its FREE as well!
Plus of course the Green Carpet ( Where you can see all the stars walk down the carpet!) and the CCMA Awards at 5pm.
I would suggest going just a touch fancier for these events than the mall event. This is where all Canadian Country Music stars will be ! If you can swing it – Country Dresses are perfect for this. If you feel too dressed up – just pair it with a jean jacket and you will be fine! If you’re not a dress person – all good- dark jeans work too! Maybe just pair them with a sparkly top or fancy necklace! Here are some great ideas:
Lastly- Hair and Accessories. One rule- the bigger the better If they sparkle – that’s the best!
My fav stores for finding anything along these lines ( And at a reasonable price!) are:
– Simons (Check the sale rack – always great!)
– H & M
– Forever 21 (although sometimes for tall girls like me – their stuff is just a wee bit short!!)
– Joe Fresh ( Yes! Superstore!)
All of the above images I found on Pinterest. Its a great source for ideas!
The most important thing is to LOVE what you are wearing. No matter how “stylish” it is – if you’re not comfortable in it- its never going to be fun to wear. This weekend is going to be so great- I’m so excited to see everyone. Please make sure to say hi !
