What I Wore: The Ballet

December 27th, 2012 | Posted in Beauty, Fashion, Personal by Meli

I know I said I wouldn’t be back until the new year, but this outfit got a lot of love on my Instagram, so I figured it would make for a good end of year post. Plus, you all know I can’t stay away too long from the blog. It’s a weakness. I hope you all had a fantastic past couple of days with those you love the most!

My Christmas present this year was very simple(ish). I just wanted to be taken out on a romantic date to dinner and a ballet. Namely, The Nutcracker. I hadn’t been since I was a kid, and I’m a sucker for holiday traditions. I’d love for it to be one of ours, and eventually our children. The hubs pulled out all the stops and made me feel like a very lucky wife, which honestly, is a feeling I experience quite often. With that said, I knew this was one of the few occasions where I would be able to rock a sequined dress, so I took full advantage. I just didn’t think my (amazing) dress would come from Forever 21! It was a Christmas miracle. ;)
