I had one crazy ridiculous day today!  Sadly, all my weekends from now until the wedding (May 7) are pretty much going to be ridiculous.  What exactly does this mean?  Let's just say I was up at 7:30am and am just now getting a chance to sit down and write up this post at midnight (12:14 am).  Yes, that is a loooon day, friends.  My bed is looking extra comfy right now.

Adrian (fiance) and I had our first wedding dance workshop today (for my Dallasites, Vow To Dance is awesome).  We were both a little nervous at first but it ended up being so much fun!  And this skirt was the belle of the ball, in my mind.    Everytime Adrian led me into a turn I couldn't help but sneak little glances of the ruffly pleats twirling in the mirror.  This skirt was just made for twirling.

I think my pleated, twirling happiness made me forget about accessorizing this outfit.  I totally could use a necklace and some real bracelets here (instead of an old forgotten hair tie...).  Tomorrow I'll add bring out some extra bling.

Oh, and yes, it's the official debut of the bangs!  You like?  You better cause this is what you're gonna see in pictures now for awhile.  :)

  8. With or without accessories you look so good. I am glad that got to twirl for real in that skirt because I would not have had such a great excuse.

  11. You do not look tired at all! I love the almost all white - big departure from your usual bright colors! Its so refreshing and clean with the one pop of blue from your shoes. I think bangs make you even more youthful!

    ReplyDelete
  12. You look beautiful in your new bangs! I love it!
    The pleated skirt fits you very well. I wonder how well the pleats hold after a wash. I am too lazy to take care of pleats. :)

  13. The bangs look great! I did dance lessons with my husband too before we got married, was totally worth it. Did you guys pick a song yet?

  25. i was only able to manage 3 hours in these shoes before i had to switch over
    to more comfortable wedges, lol. and foam inserts from
    Aldosare
    the trick. i wore these the first time without them and i couldn't
    walk
    for more than 30 minutes.

  26. these are my wedding shoes, so i had to practice dancing in them. :)

  27. The bangs look so great! And I love twirly skirts! As a little kid, my sisters and I would twirl for hours! As an adult, I still do the same, but for some reason my husband doesn't want to join in. Good luck with the dance workshop!

  30. The bangs look great on you! I'm trying to decide if I'm going to cut my hair. It's not working so well, I can't figure out if I want to keep my hair long or short. Decisions, decisions.

    Also trying to decide if I'm going to get a pleated skirt like that, I did not know they could look so cute!

  31. love your skirt and how the blue shoes bring a bright pop of color!! :)

  36. SO CUTE, Kileen! Both the outfit and your new haircut. I saw a yellow pleated skirt at The Limited the other day and considered getting it, but eventually passed. You've got me rethinking it now :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh Kileen, you look so pretty with bangs! I unfortunately bought clip on since I didn't have the guts! haha And I love the pleats! Can't wait till it gets warmer so I can but them out. Keep up with the dancing, while I am a dancer, there is something special learning how to dance with your "fiance" working together, communicating, and performing something you both worked on is so rewarding! Can't wait to see it!

  39. I LOVE the bangs!! I maybe a little obsessed with the "zooey deschanel" look so dark hair and bangs are usually winners in my book...but to be honest, this look just doesn't work for everyone. But it seriously compliments you so well, I love it1

  40. A pleated skirt is the perfect thing to wear to a dance lesson. Even if you were just swaying side to side the pleated skirt will make it look eloquent. Good luck with all the wedding stuff!!

  48. You look absolutely lovely with bangs! Will you be incorporating them into your wedding hair look?

    I have been coveting pleated skirts for what seems like an eternity (it's very hard to get them nicely spaced and pressed as a DIY project) and this looks soooo pretty on you!

    ReplyDelete
  49. That skirt is awesome- accordion pleats are my favorite!
    Your bangs are fabulous and very flattering

  59. Kileen, the bangs suit you so well! I LOVE this outfit, so pretty and girly. Just gorgeous! And I'm so excited for your upcoming wedding. Weddings make me giddy ;)

    ReplyDelete
  60. the wedding look i'm thinking about having will be super simple so the bangs should hopefully enhance the look a bit. that's actually the main reason i decided to go ahead and get it cut now instead of waiting until after the wedding. :)

    and good luck with a DIY pleated skirt. making the pleats does sound super hard!

    ReplyDelete
  61. What a cute skirt! And I can't believe you're able to dance in those shoes! I do love them but will probably twist my ankle walking down the side walk, much less carrying out complicated dance maneuvers :P

    ReplyDelete
  62. looks cute! I never would have thought to pair such a light blue with white, but it works!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love your skirt so much. I am obssessed with pleats at the moment and I am desperately looking for a pleated skirt but am yet to find the right one which is annoying. I love your white look, so pretty and I adore the shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I just noticed your Rule Breaking Entry too and we were definitely thinking
    the same thing when getting dressed! :)
