Dreams do come true. My sister got us tickets to the ‘On The Run Tour’ and I had the time of my life! I’ve seen JAY Z now four times and Beyoncé just once last summer but nothing is like seeing J+B together! For those of you who don’t know (or can’t already tell) — I’m kind of obsessed with all things Beyoncé, recently even started taking Beyoncé dance classes (I love NY/future post?). My icebreaker usually when I meet people is, “I have the same birthday as Beyoncé.” (September 4th, comin’ up Bey!)
One might ask though — what do you wear to a Beyoncé concert? Well the thing to remember is — you are actually not on stage. At the show it’s of course exciting to dress up and maybe throw on some sequins but remember you’re going to be standing/dancing for a few hours — leave the heels at home ladies and embrace the “sneakers with everything” trend! I can’t tell you how many bodycon dresses I saw in the audience. Believe me, I love a good bodycon moment but at a concert I think it’s best to be comfortable!
I naturally got me and my sister matching outfits — I couldn’t resist these “I Woke Up Like This” tanks I spotted in a NYC boutique. Not only is that one of the most memorable lines from the album but on one of my favorite tracks, “Flawless” (Have you heard the remix yet?! http://www.beyonce.com/flawless/). I wore it with my favorite AE skinny jeans, Rebecca Minkoff crossbody (hands-free dance party) a chambray shirt tied around my waist and my Nike Free sneakers and I was ready to dance all night and stay warm when it got cooler after the show.
Highlights of the night? I can’t pick just one — I practically lost my mind when JAY Z performed “Clique” and Beyoncé came in killing it with a remix of “Diva”. I also almost died when they sang “Forever Young” together (insert heart eyes emoji). It was truly magical. Beyoncé also dancing to “Partition” was ridiculous. Basically, the music video and more came to life. If you have a chance to see this show I highly recommend it — or definitely tune into the HBO documentary!
This is my effortless “I Woke Up Like This” Beyoncé concert look — what’s yours?
