Guys, it’s been a long time coming, but I went to the ERAS TOUR!!!!!!
The beginning of this month was the most stressful and exciting time, if I’m honest.
I purchased these tickets back in October when they were released. I got tickets back when Ticketmaster closed. I was scared that my tickets weren’t valid for a really long time. But that didn’t stop me from getting excited and planning.
I watched all the TikToks, made eras tour bracelets, and planned an eras tour theme lunch before going to the concert.
And I thought I would share some of my favorite parts with you.
I was obsessed with the Lover album, so that inspired my outfit. It wasn’t anything original. I got the dress from Shein. Please don’t hate me. I know Shein is bad, and fast fashion is terrible, but there aren’t many options for cute clothes when you’re a size 1XL or bigger.
I know some people don’t care for Lover, but Literally, the song Paper Rings is my absolute favorite song from Taylor Swift. It makes me think of my boyfriend. Also, The Man has a special place in my heart. The day the music video was released, I had a job interview and wore a cute, classy MODEST skirt suit. My male interviewer told me, “I’m not sure you’re aware, but we require staff to dress modestly, which may require you to wear pants. Would that be hard for you?” To this day, it just makes me so mad. He wouldn’t have said that to a man.
In all honesty, Taylor Swift’s songs have been a significant part of my life since 2008. And getting to hear her sing live was a surreal experience for me.
I was in the nosebleeds and made it the time of my life. I traded bracelets with random girls. All of the memories of when I first heard her songs came back up when she sang from fearless. I felt like a tween again when she sang You Belong With Me. I cried when she played August and screamed when she sang NO BODY, NO CRIME.
But the songs that broke me were All Too Well (the 10-minute version) and You’re On Your Own, Kid. That was our surprise song.
