Honest Heart Festival look for Gary Clark Jr at Bluesfest

Dressing for Bluesfest in an Honest Heart Festival look

Gary Clark Jr played RBC Bluesfest in Ottawa and youcould have called me a tad bit excited.  Gary has to be the number one Blues player in the world today so getting a chance to see him again was awesome.  It`s not our first Rodeo of course, Gary played Bluesfest before.Plus we saw him at the House of Blues in Orlando.  Any chance to see this guy play is not to be missed trust me.  It was a crazy great show that even the rain could not pit a damper on.  We were fortunate enough to be at the front ( one row back actually).

If you zoom in really closely to my great friend`s (and photographer Steve Gerecke) photo you can see my hat.  OK you really need to know where to look but I am there honest.  Let`s just look at this for a minute, it was crazy but the crowd was amazing.  Everyone was there to listen to the Blues.

I had to share this as well, Steve is such an amazing photographer, he just captures the moment perfectly. Check out his albums you will not be disappointed and you never know whom else you may see. But back to Gary , it was an amazing show. If you were here in Ottawa and missed it well, I feel bad for you. If you are anywhere else and get a chance to catch him lie, trust me you need to go.

Festival Outfits

As for me, the weather and the outfit, well thank god for Fedora’s and ponchos.  The weather started OK, I mean honestly a tank and skirt were fine, the forecast was not great so I went prepared.  fedora, poncho and umbrella stored away in my trusty Kate Spade Bag.

Irrestible Me Hair

i opted for the hair extensions too.  Somehow seems so festivalesque to wear long flowing braids.  My standard Honest Heart Collective Tank, worn to many a music event with a fun skirt (with pockets).  My converse were appropriate and of course the fedora and camera necklace.

Sadly I actually never got a decent full outfit shot at the festival. What kind of blogger am I even??? Honestly not one festival outfit shot.  I should hang my head, oh wait, I was actually living a life worth blogging about not just blogging.  Guess I will forgive myself and thankfully I took pics before I left the house.
