"" FutureLint (I have nothing to wear!): Grey swan

Grey swan

There is something about this outfit that makes me feel like an off duty ballerina. I did take ballet for one year when I was about six and I only remember two things about it . One is my teacher Miss Vicki. She wore a teal letterman's sweater with a big white V on the left breast pocket every day and I thought it was the coolest thing ever.  The other thing I remember is the recital. At some point all of us little ballerinas exited the stage during the performance and two of us at a time came running out and did a little pirouette move. When me and my partner ran on from the sides of the stage and did our simultaneous pirouette, the record started skipping. We both froze for a second and then just went, pirouette, pirouette, pirouette, pirouette, every time the record skipped. The crowd was cracking up at our little panic pirouettes! Someone fixed the record and we finished our little section and carried on. Yes, I am that old that a record skip ruined what surely would have been a long and illustrious career as a professional ballerina.

Have a fabulous weekend internet! I 'm excited because I have Monday off for MLK day, but not that excited because I have a dentist appointment that morning. Otherwise my only plans are to go on a pub crawl on Saturday in Nordeast Minneapolis (no, I did not spell that wrong, it's Nordeast not Northeast) where I will be the "token straight girl" with my friend Amber and a huge group of lesbians. It's pretty fun cause whenever they get hit on at bars they can just shove the boys toward Amber and I and tell them we're the token straight friends and hitting on anyone else in the group is a lost cause. Wahoo!

Psst... didja see miss Tavi, the Style Rookie herself, wearing some Futurelint vintage again the other day? Yessssss.

One of my first ballerina memories was of a recital too... at the end everyone in the dance school went out on the stage with mini country flags and sand it's a small world after all (I don't know why) but, I lost my class and wandered out all on my own. 4 year old me in a poodle costume with an American flag, everyone thought it was so cute...

Love the pale colors of this outfit and you definitely look like a pretty ballerina! I've always wanted to be a ballerina but I was/am too inflexible to be one.

You always have the coolest looking tops! This one has a great twist. It reminds me of modern art or something. I like all the gray too. Gray is such a classy color. :)

ADORABLE. Off-duty ballerina suits you well. And I totally chuckled out loud (COL-ed?) at your pirouette story. :)

The Korean shirt is really neat.
What type of material is the white decoration?
