Our little tapper/ballerina performed in her third recital yesterday.

Each time she becomes more confident & more graceful.

As I was spraying up stray hairs, resecurring bobby pins and retouching lip liner & sparkly gloss, she kept saying, “C’mon, I need to go backstage!”

{sorry for the teeny tiny picture…I snagged it off Facebook [thanks, Julianne!] and can’t get it sized any bigger, but you get an idea of how darling she looked}

She’s so proud of her trophies. The first one broke 4 hours after she got it, was repaired and is now broken again. The second one crashed and burned last week, but so far this one is still standing. We’ll get the other two patched up and display all three {high} up away from little 4-year old boy hands.

She may be proud of her plastic trophies, but we’re even more proud of the tiny dancer she’s become.

Here’s to many more toe taps, shuffle steps, jazz hands, grand jetés, pliés, chassés, pas de bourrées and hopefully trophies that stay in one piece.

Wear-it Wednesday

I am loving all these designers that are teaming up with Targé…geez, now it’s Jean Paul Gaultier.

About 2 years ago I got these Loeffler Randall gold ballet flats and I can’t remember life without them.

They’ve gotten soaked in the rain, the dog has chewed one of them…but I can’t part with them just yet.

I adore the neutral metallic color and the sweet rosettes. You can dress them up ~ or down. Love, love, love them! Metallic shoes are the perfect pick-me-up to any outfit and let you feel like you have a little “bling” to help carry you through your day. I am still kicking myself because I passed up a pair of dirt cheap peep toe flats in bronze around the holidays. I know they would’ve gotten just as much love as the goldies above.

I also ordered this Felix Rey canvas tote from Target on-line (thanks to this cute blog: louiselovesit.com) that I have been keeping under wraps until Spring (10 days!). I think it’ll be the perfect piece to spruce up any yoga pants and wife beater ensemble. It will also go nicely with these!

Now, off to search for some silver Havaianas for Summer.

Oh, and if Michael Kors ever collaborates with the red bulls eye, I will be ALL OVER that stuff!
