This summer I have returned to ballet (after 20 years! Gulp!) I was obsessed with all things ballet as a child and took incessant lessons from the age of 3 to 13 at which point, sadly I became too cool for school but a deep love will remain with me always. I needed to take up some form of exercise post baby and I thought why not return to an old friend. I suppose it is just etched into me. As you may know I love to reference ballet in my make up, hair, footwear and clothes and since I am channelling a more delicate, feminine vibe this summer it seemed only right that I get my dusty pink chiffon out. If you want to start ballet lessons yourself I have discovered professional ballerina Mary Helen Bowers’ wonderful website from which you can stream workouts or have interactive live classes from wherever you are in the world. It doesn’t even require a barre or a lot of space, just a yoga mat and your front room so it’s perfect for busy yummy mummies. She is also going to bring out dancewear. A great reason in itself to persevere with my classes.

This dress is wonderful! Lovely vintage style drop waist. Wish I could pull this off!

Thank you. I love drop or loose waists as I’m not a fan of cinching myself in. Loving your blog post by the way x

The world of ballet is fascinating, and you look like a ballerina, not only for your stunning dress, but for your graceful pose and delicate beauty. I’m your newest follower by bloglovin, pinterest, twitter and facebook. Hope you’ll return the love and we can stay in touch!

Ahhhhh, you’re so sweet. Thank you so much! I’m actually off to a ballet lesson right now, it’s far too difficult for me but I’m gonna give it a go. I will definitely check out your blog. Thanks for sending me a message x
