The Floral Ballet

Ok, I know you're wondering why on earth I decided to name this post The Floral Ballet but in my mind, I find good reasoning behind it.  When I first saw this top, with all of it's tulle-fanciness swirled into ballerina pink-colored flowers, I knew I was in love.  At first I planned to wear it with just a pair of printed skinny jeans, but once I saw this unworn Aqua dress hanging in my closet (yes, dress, not a skirt), I knew the two together would create my version of a floral ballerina look.  The shape of the dress (conformed to a skirt) is perfectly structured for the well-balanced ballerina, that of which I am not (though I've always wanted to take ballet!)  So what do you guys think of my look?

Also, please don't forget to enter the $50 Giftcard Giveaway from Mont Affair here!!!  It's incredibly easy to join, and the giveaway is open through the end of the month.

Lastly, please, please, please check back in on Friday!!  I've had such a hard time keeping it a secret, but I have some super exciting news that I can't wait to share with you guys!!
