Wannabe Ballerina

September 19, 2011

Top:  Gap. Skirt:  Free People. Necklace:  Montana Goodwill. Bracelet:  Gift from Grandmother. Sandals:  Target.

Most little girls aspire to be ballerinas. They beg and plead for their mothers to enroll them in ballet class. However, after a few dance classes most little girls realize that they don’t want to be ballerinas and all of the hard work thats involved in making dance look effortless. With the popularity of the show Dance Moms on Lifetime and the resurgence of ballet inspired clothes in popularity every few years, it is evident that we still keep these secreted dance fantasies in our heads.

I’ve always loved ballet inspired clothing. Ballet flats have been my shoe of choice since I was 15. Ruffly skirts with tulle and netting that resemble tutus make me swoon. I’m envious of girls who can do the perfect messy bun, as my hair is too layered and tempermental to stay in that style for more that 20 minutes.

This ballet dream inspires my latest outfit. A good portion of this outfit was purchased in Montana, everything except for the Free People skirt. While the shopping in Missoula, Montana, is not the greatest it is tax free, which for a Tennessee resident, is like an automatic 10% discount! Also, most Montanans aren’t style savvy, so its easy to snap up really cute things on uber clearance and tax free.
