i’m wearing: anthropologie scoopback maxi dress, leona pendant necklace c/o stella & dot, old navy beaded sandals (not shown), michael kors watch, various bracelets and the clutch was a gift from my mom (similar w/o beading).

i always wanted to be a ballerina. i even own a pair of pointe shoes. but i’ve never taken a single class. at least i got this scoopback maxi that makes me feel ballerina-ish. =) also, a few things about these pictures i have to mention…the first pic is me being genuinely excited to find out that this dress has pockets! i didn’t even know it when i bought it. and the last pic is for my mom because she has been upset that i hadn’t used the clutch she bought me yet. so here you go mom! =)

    Haha – you are so cute! I seriously want this dress…looks like it would be comfy, but is so flattering too! Might have to stalk it until it goes on sale – I’ll try to get a different color than you so we aren’t twinsies šŸ™‚

    The back of that dress does remind me of the way some leotards are cut. Pretty dress! And you should take ballet. Why not? You can still have fun! I’m 32 and I feel like I get better every year.

    Love this dress and love it on you! Rich chocolate brown is one of my fav colors and paired with the statement piece necklace and that amazing bag your mom gave you this is an outfit that you can wear day or night.

    I love the shape and style of the black dress! I think when it gets colder and you add a coat, it will be a great date night outfit!
