Ballerina

When I was a little girl, I loved ballerinas, so beautiful and elegant, dancing around with such grace. I have always wanted a ballerina skirt but was never interested in taking a class, why? I was a lazy child! ;)

How to blend a little more of your inner ballerina into an everyday outfit?

I love looking at ballarinas too, they look so elegant and like butterflies :)

Suzannah said...

me to :) and lovely pictures btw <3

Rebecca said...

Gorgeous pictures! I think it would be more fun to dress like a ballerina than actually be one... I took ballet classes when I was 3 or 4 years old - didn't go over so well with me! :)

Dionne said...

Oh I love ballerinas. So graceful and pretty.

Ela said...

I used to be a ballerina, then I got sick and had to stop. I never did pick it up when I fully recovered, I always regret that.

I am loving the Vogue Korea pages you chose!

I love ballerinas too, so full of grace. Found a beautiful black ballerina dress at h&m the other week :D

jen laceda said...

I think every girl had, once upon a time, dreamt of being a ballerina and a princess. Then we realize how much hardwork it is...However, what we can't be, we can pretend to be by playing dress-up! Another advantage of being a girl!

Cathy Voyage said...

You look so pretty and I love your hair!

✿Ji✿ said...

Beautiful dresses!♥

S.Elisabeth said...

So beautiful, ballerinas always look so graceful, even if they're working and sweating quite a bit underneath the twirls. And I love the skirts. I LOVE YOUR BOUTIQUE!! I hate that the dollar is so weak in comparison!! And of course my mother's card because she won't let me use my own online... hmph

Sal said...

So romantic ... love the soft colors and floaty fabrics.

iva yaneva said...

wow, these photos are fabulous! I love how you have offered an outfit inspired by them:) x

DaisyChain said...

I love all things ballet, my Mum was a pro dancer before she got married.

Sabine said...

I love the black skirt!

I used to want to be a ballerina too and I even took classes when I was around 8. Haha it didn't last very long though. It was too much hard work and not exactly what my little 8 year old self had in expected.

LML said...

i am a dancer, but never got into ballet or pointe. i do admire their costumes and long long legs!

Ty Ty said...

vicki archer said...

I have a big love for these Tina, xv.

poet said...

Same with me - I loved the costumes, and I also loved the idea of being so graceful. I actually enjoyed dancing until I got a very strict teacher, who insisted that only those with talent to become professionals dance ballet... thus ended my short dancing career :)

Greetings,
poet

Erika said...

Beautiful pictures. Beautiful skirts. Oh, my life's dream is to be a ballerina! :)

Erica W. said...

I love the idea of adding a ballerina influence to an everyday outfit, such lovely inspiration.

Kosmopolight said...

BEAUTIFUL ballerina photos, and I LOVE your first "everyday" look. I need that entire outfit!

xo,
Kelley

Vicki Dvorak said...

cleung341 said...

I have to go and check out the dress on your store, it's cute.

Hannah is Narnia's Closet said...

beautiful pictures and those skirts are darling! some of my fondest memories from my childhood are taking dance classes or attending the Pennsylvania ballet with my mom - although my ballet costumes were very gaudy and disgusting (for one recital we wore neon green leos with white skirts and lots of faux daisy detils - i loved it at the time!)

amy b.s. said...

i love that long sweater over the skirt. amazing.

sarah { esseegee } said...

i love this last outfit. so modern, but still adorably ballerina!

Elizabeth Marie said...

Gorgeous...I miss ballet too.

avant garde said...

I always wished I was a ballerina too. I took lessons, but then I got distracted and I regret it so much! Love the beautiful images :)

fromtherightbank.com said...

I used to take ballet as a kid and the costumes were the best part! I love the last look - the long sweater with the skirt is adorable. I was just at your shop site and I love so many of the looks! It's all very tempting. :)

OMG! I was just thinking of ballerinas as well! Well, maybe not so much ballerinas as high-wire artists. :)
