Day 7: Tiny Dancer

Once upon a time, there was little girl Nicole. She loved to dance and went to jazz and ballet classes many times a week. She also managed to perfect her own bun at the age of 9. Sadly that dream of being a prima ballerina was never realized, but there were many recitals [The Nutcracker every year for 5 years straight!] and many, many buns.

I have to say my day has been all about cleaning out my closet. And when I found this dress I got really excited because a) it's incredibly comfortable b) kinda makes me look like not such a slacker when staying home all day c) is perfect for nursing! Once I put it on it really necessitated a whole ballerina look. Of course, we're seeing tons of ballerina-inspired fashion since Black Swan has been in theaters, so why not remix this dress into something similar? The dress is something I bought many years ago for a Valentine's Day date, and the tiny shrug is something I wore on top of my wedding dress [one must always layer in California, even on your wedding day!] Pink bow in the hair, and I can just imagine Elton John singing "..hold me close tiny dancer.."!

PS: This is what happens when you try to take photos of the back of your head. You get a lot of these shots.

  1. Alright, you're inspiring me! So beautiful, Nicole.

  2. OMG, you're as cute as Zoe! I like the redesign, too.


I'd love to hear from you!
