Hi everyone! 

These photos are from a few weeks back when I went and saw Ed Sheeran live in concert at Blossom Music Center. It was my second time seeing him and honestly, he's just as good as I remember. Of all the music I listen to, Ed is my favorite artist, so it's always quite special to see him live. His raw talent is always so evident when you hear him apart from the radio or album. He doesn't need back up singers, choreography, or a big band behind him. He just stands upon the stage with his guitar and sings. And it's just so, so lovely.

Bought this dress at Zara while I was still living in NYC. It's such an uncharacteristic dress for me and a style territory I've never ventured into; body con. I remember trying the dress on and off, off and on a million times in the dressing room trying to decide if I liked it or not. I do like it I think. It's empowering to wear a dress like this because it puts your body on full display and forces you to not have any insecurities. Despite the fact that I want to put a jacket over my shoulders, tie a shirt around my waist...I fight the urge because this dress makes me love myself as I am in all of my  lump, bump, and rolls glory. I'm proud of my body but humble. I know it's not perfect by any standards but that doesn't mean I can't love it anyways. x

With much love, Lauren.

Wow, Lauren!! I've been away on holiday so just catching up on all your posts now and your hair! It looks AMAZING! Honestly, it looks like you were just made to have your hair like this. I had mine cut short last year, but after seeing these photos, I'm tempted to go even shorter now.
And I love this dress - you have an absolutely gorgeous figure and it complements it so well. I know what you mean about wearing things that aren't exactly your style but it helping your confidence when you do.

You look great in the dress Lauren! I could never pull off that style, but you do it beautifully!!

Also, Ed Sheeran. I need to listen to him more. Any songs you'd recommend by him for me? Thanks! ;)

You look absolutely stunning! I tend to avoid bodycon for the same reasons; it's daunting to put something on your body that doesn't disguise things you're insecure about. But you really do have a gorgeous figure, and bodycon really suits you!

That lipstick is perfect, too!

I think you look amazing! The edgy look suits you! (Imagine what younger Lauren, like high school Lauren, would think if she knew you'd be wearing things like this! Hehe.
