What to wear to the dance class?

Getting dressed is a fun part of my day! It’s like playing dress-ups every morning! Sometimes it’s hard to decide–not beacuse I don’t have a thing to wear–just the opposite, I have so many lovely choices.

Putting an outfit together is easy with my very own dressing room where everything is handy and in full view. All jewellery, shoes and accessories are displayed like a little boutique. That’s one of the joys of being an empty-nester!

I chose to wear this black and red plaid dress for this week’s Ballroom class. The dress looks like a top and skirt but it is one piece. I like the high waisted lace up and the handkerchief style which looks pretty when twirling on the dance floor.

The top part being black so I’m wearing black tights Drizzle and Shine eco-boutique and black shoes Maggie’s clothing exchange. I found this vintage heart pendant at a flea market in NYC.

Two of my pleasures in life: fashion and dance!

What pleasures do you enjoy?

Remember to have fun!

It’s good for you!

  7. Hello Carmen, I have to say I would love my very own converted bedroom/closet! I will have to see if that would work in the years to come as the kids get older and go to college! I really love the dress! The handkerchief style is very pretty on you and it goes great with the tights and heels. Very nice pendant necklace also. I have to say I love to shop for fashion. Lately it has been a lot of window shopping but I like that too! Have a beautiful day Carmen,Terri xoxo.

      Thanks so much Terri! Yes, it’s the luxury of being an empty-nester, more space. However, I treasure the years my children lived at home. Those are the days I cherish very much and I’m grateful my three children have grown up and they are still a precious part of my life. 🙂

      Window shopping is fun, I’ve always enjoyed that too.

      Have a thankful Thursday!

      So glad you enjoyed this Terri! We both love buffalo plaid, it’s not just for lumberjacks. I have a nice little collection now. You make me smile with your comment about a series of “What I Wore to Teach In” 🙂 Thank you so much!

      Thank you so much dear Josep-Maria! I also like the Scottish look of this outfit. Sometimes I teach Scottish country dancing at the places where I am invited to. 🙂
