blush pink maxi skirt, modern ballerina

Lots of girls dream about being a ballerina when they are little; it’s just a natural daydream. Ballerinas embody beauty, femininity and grace–all qualities I still aspire to possess. So now that I’m older, why should I stop dreaming? I know I’ll never be a ballerina, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be inspired by the beautiful flowing skirts and perfectly pulled back hair.

You might recognize the blush pink maxi from my favorite things post a few weeks ago. I love how it flows when I walk; it makes me feel so graceful! I paired it with a simple tee (last seen here) and of course pulled my hair back into a pretty ballerina bun. To add some sparkle, I chose some statement earrings and a minimalist bar bracelet. Instead of ballet flats (seriously, there is such a thing as being too inspired by a look), I went with these d’orsay flats, which have totally been my go to lately.

Surprisingly, a cold front has come through Atlanta, so I added this amazing faux fur coat to keep me warm. The weather had been so nice lately and then all of a sudden it got cold again. Fingers crossed that it warms up again!

Have you ever been inspired by a childhood dream?
