Prima ballerina

Outfit Details:
Nishe ballerina dress: ASOS (found one on eBay here)
Black sheer tights: Urban Outfitters
Lady in Rad Boot in Ink: ModCloth
Pink heart ring: Urban Outfitters (old)
Pink coat: Tulle

This weekend was Nutcracker weekend for the orchestra I work for (they do a co-production with Rochester City Ballet every year), and it always proves to be kind of exhausting.  It's nice because it gets you into the holiday spirit, but it is a lot to handle.  I worked all day on Friday and came home incredibly sore, just from sitting in a chair for 7+ hours.  I actually took a bath for the first time since I was probably 8 or so, and it was awesome.  Baths are highly underrated, I think.  Saturday was a little easier; despite the fact that I was on the schedule for both concerts, I ended up getting a nice break in between... during which, my dad and I took a trip to Best Buy... and I AM SO EXCITED because I am getting a wonderful, blog-related present for Christmas (hint: it starts with a "c" and rhymes with "ramera")!!!!  I am going to have to act very surprised.  Needless to say, my parents are really great and I feel sort of undeserving these days.

This dress is from one of my favorite brands, Nishe (I thought it was all too appropriate for my work weekend!).  I've worn a bunch of their pieces on my blog before (including this hot air balloon dress, this fruit dress, this heart romper, this mermaid dress, and the cupcake dress I wore for Halloween!).  I'm so pleased that ASOS carries so many of their pieces.  ModCloth carries a few of them, but ASOS seems to carry a much larger representation of their current lines.  If you're not familiar with this label, go check out their section at ASOS.  I don't like as many of the pieces in their current fall/winter line, but I'm excited to see what their spring line will look like!

I'm excited to make some progress on my room makeover!  My mom had been looking for a long, low dresser (and sometimes she doesn't really quite know my taste), and we found one on Etsy for FAR less than she'd originally thought she'd have to pay... so we bought it!  It's goooorgeous, and it's painted white and mint already (I posted a photo of it on my instagram, if you want to see!).  I want to go shopping for paint and such!  My room has french doors that go into the guest room (where I actually sleep), and one room is already a minty color, so we are probably just going to paint that a slightly more pastel mint... and then I'm not sure whether I want to go with the same thing in the other room, or a pastel lavender.  I'm leaning towards the lavender right now.  I also need to paint my set of ice cream parlor chairs -- and find a table to go with them!  One room is going to be for some of my furniture (I have a bunch from my old apartment in New York City, and some new that I'd gathered for my future plans with my now-ex... I refuse to not put them to good use!), clothing racks, a place I can take indoor photos... and then the other one will be a normal bedroom, but with more updates and with my aesthetic.  I'm excited to get started and feel like I actually have a space that is my style.  :)

Hope you have a great Monday!

  1. PIIIIIIINK! We are pink ladies this week, Sammi! :D Buwahaha, I have recently discovered that I really, really, REALLY love pink. Which is odd. But I love pink. All sorts of pink.

    That dress is so cute, and I love that ~scarf thing~ around your neck. Oh la la.

    Your room sounds magical! *___* And that dresser is super pretty, oh man. It's really funny because my room is actually mint and white, too, and that dresser would fit so perfectly in it... I think we'd be pretty rad roommates, yeah? :D

  2. I am obsessed with baths, I take them all the time, sooo cozy! Especially when it's super chilly outside.
    I am loving this pretty white dress and your pink coat, such a gorgeous combination. And such a cute print!

  3. Absolutely darling! I love anything with ballerinas on it. And mermaids. MERMAAAAIDS.

    Love, Amy

  4. great. xo

  5. Look at you rocking white in your little winter wonderland! You are just adorable!

    Xo, Hannah

  6. This outfit is too, too perfect for the Nutcracker! Your hair is adorable too, and how could one go wrong with a pink coat?

    Bathes are wonderful, especially after a hard day. Glad for your re-discovery!

  7. You are such a doll! The dress is so perfect. I love the ruffled neckline. And I'm a life-long supporter of baths. I'd read a whole book in one bath if I never ran out of hot water!
