OOTD- Pretty Pirouettes




Graceful this is not!!

On my last solo trip to NYC, I walked past the Lincoln Center and saw a huge billboard for the NYC Ballet. I instantly put it on my list of performances to see, but soon forgot about it when I got home. Thanks to them putting the show on the road, I got the opportunity to semi-drag the bf to see some wonderfully talented dancers on stage at the Kennedy Center. I took ballet in the 2nd grade and unfortunately I don't remember anything beyond the first 4 positions. I'm always amazed at the twirls and graceful leg work (especially en pointe) that ballet dancers display.

Although it might seem as if my outfit is a little early for Easter, I thought this floral dress and bright yellow cardi would be soft and feminine. Pretty much adjectives I think of when it comes to dance. My outfit definitely fit the bill, but as you can tell from the last pic, I should probably work on being a bit more graceful with the arms. It might get me one step closer to the lead in Swan Lake (minus the Black Swan crazy though).
