You know when you feel really confident in an outfit and really excited to post it (this applies to crazy bloggers like me) and it just doesn't quite translate in pictures? Well, that is this outfit. I loved wearing it, felt great in it, but unfortunately these pictures have a "whomp, whomp" thing going on. I don't really care too much, but you know, I felt like I had to acknowledge it :)
I actually wore this outfit to see a ballet this past weekend. I used to be a ballet dancer (a long time ago; don't expect any secret video performances of me to appear on YouTube) and I love seeing it performed. In the seven years that my husband and I have been dating/married, this was the first time he took me to a ballet. He said that in the past he would look up shows and think, "oh Ashley would love this" but then he would think "but, maaaaan, I don't want to go to a ballet." I think that is pretty hilarious and I don't blame him. Ballet isn't everyone's jam. BUT, we both really enjoyed the performance (set to Haydn's The Seasons for any dorks out there) and it was fun to get dressed up and go CRAYZEEEEE (to be read in a college-hype-up voice which was pretty much the opposite of our evening).
So tell me, have you ever convinced your significant other to take you to a ballet?
