Cheeky

As a dancer, I’ve got a drawer full of legwarmers. As an after-thirty woman, though, I’m afraid wearing them outside of ballet class would be ridiculous. Thankfully, I read You Look Fab and got the idea to wear them under my boots, but pulled up enough to give my outfits a bit of cheek. Brilliant!


Cardi, Mossimo (thrifted). Tank, Express. Skirt, Chaus Sport (thifted). Sweater leggings, Macy’s. Leg warmers (the yellow bits), Luxury Diva. Boots, Diva. Owl pendant, vintage.


Wow, look at those roots! I intend to do something scandalous with them…but they aren’t long enough yet.

Love the back ruffle skirt! I always think roots look sexy, too...:)

I love the little peek of yellow. Great idea.
Looks like you got a bit more snow than we did here in Columbus, makes a lovely backdrop.

This outfit is really cute. I especially love the ruffles on the skirt. It reminds me of a victorian bustle.

I know you like owls and I was browsing on ebay (Australia), saw this fabric and thought of you.
Merry Christmas

Great way to give your look a tiny hint of color.... I cannot wait to see what you do with your hair, I am such a coward....

As a fellow dancer and after-thirty woman, I too have a drawer full of legwarmers. Nothing quite so colorful as those bright yellow ones though. Fun!

I think I will be raising my daughter's sock drawer - she has tons!
