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.
