Sartorially, there are two things I will never pass up: a multifunctional piece and a challenge.
Inspired by creative director at Danseuse/one half of the ever-inspiring Kingdom of Style, Ms. Michelle Haswell, I decided to test the boundaries of my balletwear by taking it outside the studio. This experiment resulted in the above outfit, best described as unapologetically playful grey on grey with a hint of punk-in-the-Michelle-Tanner-way.
Perhaps not the most sensible outfit choice for yesterday’s little monsoon, surprisingly this look carried me- with extreme comfort- from tea to shopping to more tea, writing, laundering, jazzercising, fig-eating and all of the other fun Tuesday activities I got up to (wake me up when August ends). I also felt pretty badass knowing that I was secretly increasing the wearability of my wardrobe all day. So there you have it- balletwear in the real world- it can be done!

PS- stay tuned for a peek at a bit of new Danseuse I’m exxxxxtremely excited about…
