To Dance...

So, I've been inspired, once again, and this time not by a book or magazine or blog - but by the ballet!! That's right, this lucky girl got taken to opening night of the Pacific Northwest Ballet's All Balanchine performance. Amazing. I was awestruck from start to finish, and I completely and totally recommend that you go. (If you happen to live in the PNW!! :)

My lovely friend, Molly (a.k.a. The Girl In Green - check out her sweet blog!!) used to dance with PNB, so I felt extra lucky to be her date for the evening & get to ask her lots of silly questions. (I know a little bit about classical music, but my only exposure to ballet prior to this was The Nutcracker! :)

Anytime I watch professional dancers, I daydream & pretend I could learn to be even one tiny bit as graceful and coordinated... and, of course, I imagine that I would wear a gorgeous tulle skirt while doing so, which leads me to these perfect confections from Ouma:

Just trying to come up with an excuse to order one and get my husband to take me dancing... :)

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

  2. hello Sally! Omg. I love this post and thanks for the very sweet shout out. I had an amazing time with you. You are a great date and I'm so glad you were inspired!

  3. Wow! This was a great post! I know ballet inspires me all the time...with fashion and everyday living!
    Thanks, Sally

  4. Yay!! So glad you enjoyed it, Wendy! Thanks for reading. :) And Molly, you're a great date, too... of course I had a fantastic time!! :)

  5. I LOVE how you describe dancing... so freeing... able to free your mind and float...I love daydreaming and pretending too... It takes you to a place in your mind that just makes you smile...Now who wouldn't love that =) I also think you should just tell your man that you want to dance... Believe it or not, guys love doing activities with their women...Even if he doesn't like the idea of it, once he's there, he won't be able to take his hands off of you (trust me!) check out my blog at www.missbeeinlove.blogspot.com


Thanks for your thoughts!! xo, Sally
