the one where Bex is a ballerina

Doesn’t every little girl wish at one point in their lifetime or another that they were a ballerina? I did. Well, I guess it was more like i wished I was a dancer, but a ballerina is like the prima dancer so it all works out. Actually, I wanted to be a singer so I guess I would be like a pop dancer . . . hip hop, maybe. Not a ballerina. It all makes perfect sense, and if you know me then you know that it could have been possible (no it couldn’t have). But I went down a different life journey (thank God). and thus no Grammy’s . . . and only occasionally Zumba. But I can still wear pretty little ballerina outfits, right? Especially when my hair is braided like Heidi – thanks to Nina.

My favorite part of this outfit is the edginess the shoes bring. A little delicate ballerina skirt with some studded shoes puts the contrast for the outfit on the perfect level. There isn’t a better combo than girly and edgy, in my opinion. Ok, maybe peanut butter and chocolate or Oreo’s and milk. Those are actually much better, but when it comes to this outfit there’s nothing better than girly and edgy.

What’s your favorite combo? Did you dream of being a ballerina?


the one about the green floral dress

I always get so many comments on my green floral dress from my winter capsule. It’s a gorgeous dress, and I love it so. It has a print similar to a rifle paper co print so I see why people love it. But. unfortunately, it’s over a year old and no longer available.


Funny story . . . It is actually featured in my favorite episode of ‘The Walking Dead’.  It’s on a zombie in the episode ‘Still’ from Season 4. Every time I watch that episode (which is weekly – no shame in my daryl game) I see my dress and I think ‘Damn zombie girl, you got good taste’.

I watch a Leonardo DiCaprio movie once a week also. It’s called loyalty.

Back to the dress . . . since it’s no longer available for purchase I scoured the internets and found 3 more green floral dresses that are somewhat similar for you to choose from. And I thought I’d show you how I would wear these gorgeous dresses.



This gorgeous dress is from Target. Seeing that I’m a little on the curvy side. I need something that will define my waist so I don’t look like a pillow case. So I’d belt this bad boy. To keep things casual I’d pair some nice gladiator sandals with it. I also would wear this to a wedding with a simple nude, heeled sandal and a gold belt.

This one is the most similar to my dress in shape and form. So here’s how I like to keep it simple.  Just a fun necklace and simple shoes.

And, finally, this is how I’d wear a green floral dress to work. I’m a firm believer that leopard is a print that can be mixed with any other print. And that is all I have to say about that.

How would you wear a green floral dress? I’d love to hear!
