This is how I feel about dancing. Specifically contemporary dancing. I'm a huge fan of So You Think You Can Dance and when I watch those beautiful bodies on stage doing those outrageous moves, my own body ache of doing the same thing. I want to push my body to that limit; to stretch, bend, and mold in a way I never thought possible. I seriously believe I have an innate ability to dance.
I was proven wrong when I stood up and tried to perform a pirouette...and fell on my butt. With the floor thumping and dishes clattering in our kitchen cabinets, that ache I originally felt in my body turned into physical pain. OK, so I was wrong. I have no dancing prowess whatsoever, so I think I should stick to my day job. BUT, the fall on my bum didn't stop me from doing what I'm really good at...which is observing cute outfits! I noticed one of the choreographers was wearing the Two-Wheeler Dress while sitting in the audience. Actually, it was Chris that noticed it first as he screamed out loud, "Hey! Two-wheeler!" then immediately blushed in embarrassment. :)
Before I leave you to day dream about being the world's best contemporary dancer, I wanted to post my OOTD from yesterday. I missed out on the Vanilla Bean Blouse but found this similar number at H&M. I had a $30 store credit to use, so when I saw this, I immediately bought it. The ruffles on the blouse are a little overwhelming, but it doesn't bother me too much. For $30, I can make this blouse work!
I wanted to take a close up of the skirt because it had a peekaboo lace hem which is oh so cute. The skirt itself has a pleated pattern that went all around, which I also love.
