What to Wear: Memphis In May 2011

As Summer quickly approaches, music lovers everywhere patiently wait for the line-up of their favorite music festival. Cali has Coachella. Texas is the home of SXSW. Lollapalooza lives in Chi-town. Lucky for us, we have the Beale Street Music Festival, better known as Memphis in May! Yes, it rains every year but on a lighter note, how fortunate are we to have such talented artists all compiled into one place at one time only a car ride away?! At any music fest you choose to go to this summer, you will see all kinds of eclectic outfits...from cut-off denim shorts with cropped tops to free and flowing maxi dresses. Your personal style can really shine through when you are in an 'anything goes' atmosphere, whether you are boho-chic, a lil bit country and a lil bit rock n' roll, or you choose to be more on the hipster side...seriously-anything goes! Come see us at SRB where you can find your music festival fashionista necessities!

Kate Bosworth and KE$HA showed their American pride in flag tees and cut-off shorts at Coachella this year. You can stay cool yet cute in SRB's Americana outfit.

Cropped tops and high-waisted shorts were several Coachella go-ers outfit of choice. Vanessa Hudgens and Whitney Port sported their own versions while listening to the sounds of summer. SRB has several varieties of this ensemble!

A few days ago at Coachella, Diane Kruger was the epitome of effortless, boho-chic in her fedora, tied-up tank and maxi skirt.

Just a few more Coachella-inspired outfits from SteamRoller Blues. You can never go wrong with trendy yet comfy tees and cut-offs, but don't forget to add fun, feathery accessories! Also, a colorful printed romper is a great way to look stylish without trying to hard!

One last essential for a fashionable Memphis in May experience:
Functional Footwear: This means FLATS! I know, I know...some of you swear by the '6-inch'  but you most certainly cannot keep movin' and groovin' all day and night, dancing to the sounds around you, with heels on. I suggest our best selling Trove T'Kees in Sunkissed, Blink, or Licorice.

So while you are enjoying the musical talent of your favorite bands, basking in the sun (but most likely dancing in the rain)... remember to have fun, be safe, and feel totally confident that you are the most fabulous music festival fashionista!
