How to style a ballerina dress and not look like a 12 year old? But first this:
Can I afford to buy some more dresses?
I like to make an overview at the beginning of the year with the expenditures that we expect that year. I mean the big things then. Things we want to purchase from savings. I always estimate how much we can save for that year. Well there is never always a balance in that, the scales always lean a little. But I’m pretty strict about that. I can spend very well, but I also like to save well. And every year it is the same at the beginning of the year. There are always unforeseen expenses.
First the health insurance must be paid, which is provided but very expensive. The car has to be serviced and before that time there is always something, now the lighting is not working on one side. Last week the bathroom mirror broke. A lit and heated one, therefore not cheap either. And they broke into our garage and took all the garden tools. All expensive and only purchased last year. And many of Gerben’s special tools have been stolen. You can never replace it. All extra costs that I really dislike. Well, the scales will lean even further.
So could I even afford this ballerina dress? Haha, I’ll take a newspaper district. Lol. Just kidding. But it is annoying! On to the essence of my blog: my outfit!
Ballerina dress with cool boots
And you thought you would see me in a tutu today! Haha, isn’t this print just gorgeous! This is another pre loved dress from one of my favorite brands. From the store where I used to work. I can blindly trust that the fit and size are always good. How cute is this ballerina dress. But of course a bit contrasting styled of course. I can’t find a good translation for cool. Google says to be tough or sturdy, but I don’t think those the right words are they? What is another word for cool?
The dress is very dark green, which was a surprise because I thought it was black. Green is better. I have had the jacket for years and fits perfectly with this dress! I already showed you this jacket last Monday. Completely happy with this outfit! Love these boots and the belt with it. That color makes it look cool for me. Whatever dress I wear, adding such color boots and belt makes the outfit look cool. The earrings are also very old, I think I bought them with this jacket. But they are the perfect shades of green.
Shop the ballerina dress over 50 look!
Would really appreciate it if you would share my photos on Pinterest.
