Ballet is on my mind with the Raise the Barre event this Saturday. This lovely shindig celebrates the beauty of the Louisville Ballet dancers in the natural habitat of their studio located at 315 E. Main St. Louisville, KY 40202
When the Ballet reached out to me to collaborate with them for fashion and writing a “What to Wear” blog post, I jumped. I’ve loved the ballet for years. My mother took me to The Nutcracker when I was a little girl and it’s been a family tradition ever year since.
I took my mother, husband, and kids this past year for the first time. My daughter was in awe of their costumes, their technique, and of course, how beautiful everything was. I told her that the result of their performance came from dedication and practice. Then I remembered an article about discipline that I had read on the rabbit hole of articles called Google.
Here’s the five ways I read about what the ballet teaches its dancers.
1) Life is really about routine.
2) Life is all about taking one step at a time, literally and figuratively.
3) Through time management, ballet helped me organize my life.
4) Trial and error is valuable concept.
5) Life is hard but, but stay smiling.

Discipline can also be defined as: A branch of knowledge, typically one studied in higher education.
In my attempts to make writing more fun for my little girl and to teach her a branch of knowledge of communications for a higher education, I asked her to help me with today’s blog post on three options on what you can wear to Raise the Barre.
The first look is a pencil skirt with a black bodysuit. It’s a very good outfit for Saturday night out. The gold on the bell really makes it pop.
The second dress is a spring-time dress. The floral shoes are my favorite. The belt really ties it in. It was very plain without the belt and the belt color really goes good with the dresses shade of red.
This dress has a Peter Pan collar with lace, how can you go wrong? White Peter Pan collar really makes the dress not plain at all. The heeled loafer are very old fashion that go with the dress very well.
I like them all.
Clearly everything looks good if you believe so. Do your thing. Wear what makes you feel beautiful.
