Friendship Bracelet: Have You Made Yours?

Once you arrive at the concert you will exchange yours with those of the other participants, so as to take home a memory of the evening.

It seems that the love with the current boyfriend Travis Kelce was born thanks to this bracelet. He, at the time, created one with his phone number. Did it really reach the interested party?

The bag: opt for the transparent one

The essential is invisible to the eye, but not to the security checks at the concert entrances. The solution for many fans to speed up the procedure and comply with the access requirements is to opt for a transparent bag or pouch that allows you to see the contents, and above all, small in size. In fact, bags that are too bulky are prohibited.

A pinch of countrycore

We know it’s summer and the high temperatures discourage any attempt at an outfit, but the Swift eras are also tinged with an inevitable country style. If giving in to camperos or sequined boots may seem too much, a cowgirl/cowboy hat (as long as it’s small enough not to block the view of others) will be enough to get into the mood.
