Lauren Alaina has announced that she’s taking a break from Instagram. In a post featuring a photo of her younger self the “Ladies in the ’90s” singer explained why she’s taking a step back from social media: to reclaim the attitude of the girl in the photo.
“This Lauren didn’t care if she wore boy clothes. She preferred it actually. She didn’t know the future. It’s ups and downs. The happiness and pain it held. She didn’t know about heartbreak or loss,” she posted. “She didn’t know how cruel people can be or how much words can hurt, but she didn’t care what people thought of her or her boy clothes. She was happy and sure of herself…I want to live everyday to be more like her. I’m looking behind every rock and corner for her this year, and I’m going to find her.”

This Lauren didn’t care if she wore boy clothes. She preferred it actually. She didn’t know the future. It’s ups and downs. The happiness and pain it held. She didn’t know about heartbreak or loss. She didn’t know how cruel people can be or how much words can hurt, but she didn’t care what people thought of her or her boy clothes. She was happy and sure of herself. She knew she wanted to write songs and sing them. She loved fiercely and boldly. And most importantly, she knew how to smile through a mom bob. 😳 😂 I want to live everyday to be more like her. I’m looking behind every rock and corner for her this year, and I’m going to find her. I’m taking a little break from social media. I’ll be back soon. Probably not in a boy’s collared shirt, but I’ll be back more like her. Much love to all of you. Thank you for your continued support. 💕
The singer added that she would be back soon, and while we support her healthy attitude about social media we will surely miss her fabulous fashion posts and punny captions. While we await her return, here are a few of our favorites.
A Swinging Time
Ring a Ding Ding!
Pretty In Pink
I’ve gotta “hand” it to my team. They came in “clutch” this year for @cmt Awards. I’m in Love-ender with this look. Make-up: @merigrayfernandes Hair: @koriekendrickhair Styling: @amberlehman & @carriesmithmorgan Moral Support and Margaritas: @edengerlock123 @trishamcclanahan @_alex_hopkins Dress: @johnpaulataker Clutch: @benedettabruzziches Earrings/Ring: @hueb Bracelet: @mattia_cielo
Alaina went for an understated but elegant look at the CMT Awards this year. Her pale pink dress contrasted perfectly with her skin tone and we absolutely love that her belt and her bag matched perfectly.
Black Dress Dream
Alaina absolutely stunned in this flowing black gown that was the perfect mix of classy and sassy.
“Faux-hawks” for the Win
Between her pink denim jacket and her “faux-hawk” hairstyle, Alaina looks like a rockstar who’s about to take the stage.
We’ll get “straight” to the point just like Alaina did – her sleek hair and black jumpsuit result in a simple, but head-turning look that we’re totally obsessed with.
Alaina knows how to dress up, but her casual outfits usually have a fashionable flair too. This plum colored top paired perfect with the high-waisted jeans Alaina chose to wear.
Pop of Pink
Alaina went for the classic color combination of black and white here but what really stands out are her pink heels. The heels add a little bit of color to her outfit and we’re loving the tassels on them!
Are we “crossing a line” by saying how much we love this look on Alaina? The one-shouldered top and side ponytail balance each other out perfectly!
Heart-Eyes for Days
We “heart” this dress and the red heels that Alaina is rocking here! Busy patterns can often be tough to approach, but Alaina pulls this looks off well.
An “Over-All” Killer Look
Overalls are in again and we love this two-tone pair that Alaina paired with a choker to give this outfit a sassy vibe!
Country Music’s Princess
Alaina looked like a real-life Cinderella in this dress at the 2017 ACM Awards and we’d be lying if we said we aren’t still completely obsessed with this look. If Disney ever needs another princess, it’s safe to say Alaina should be their first call!
