To the Ballet

(Bebe blazer, AGAIN tee, American Apparel skirt, J.Crew flats, Vintage bag)

I’m currently lusting over anything ballerina. The little ballet flats and pastel pink shades feel so fresh for spring. It’s easy, simple, and chic. I love a great pleated skirt with a soft gray tee. Loose layers at their best. Plus, it is extremely comfortable. I just want to dance around and watch this pretty little skirt shimmer lol.

I might even throw this look into my suitcase for my time in Spain next week. I’m a bit freaked out, I haven’t even started packing! Apparently the weather is a bit up and down, so I’ll be sure to bring layers that can easily be thrown off and on. I’m flying out tomorrow morning to work on a fun project with my favorite Spanish brand, MANGO. I’ll be there for a week! The video I shot for the Que Me Pongo MANGO campaign will out in a few weeks as well and I’m both excited and nervous to see it (it is a web series and episode 1 is already out!)

Gaah, it’s going to be my first time in Europe and I cannot wait wait to share my adventures with you. I know I’m going to go crazy taking pictures so bear with me if my next posts are incredibly long!

    I love wearing my midi and long skirts with ballerinas. You look amazing!
    On the other hand, I would have loved meeting all of you this week in my city but I have an important business trip and can’t be at the Mango event 🙁
    Have fun!!

    such gorgeous pale and delicate colors. the kirt is so fragile, i love how it shines it the sunshine. the T-shirt is actually pretty casual but it looks fabulous in combination with the vest. love the combination of the bag and the shoes. they are both black, so you would think that it would be toooo hard, but it looks fabulous.

    Hi Natalie!
    Lovely outfit, as per usual. The skirt is so so so lovely

    Just wanted to let you know that I did a drawing of you in one of your outfits. Please see it on my blog:

    I know it’s really cheeky of me to ask, but would it be possible if you could feature my drawings of you on your blog? I am really trying to launch my art and I’m hoping that the audience of your blog will hopefully be a fan of my art work and the rest of my blog too.

    Here, in Barcelona, the weather has been perfect today. I don’t think that it would change next week, then, pack light dresses for your stay in my country. I hope that you have a good time and if you need any advice, just tell me!
    kisses (or “petons” as we say in catalan, the language that we speak in Barcelona),

    I’m actually in love with that maxi skirt. In fact, I’m in love with everything about this look! You’re definitely rocking the pastel trend.

    Have a great time in Spain! I’d recommend taking a light jacket and an umbrella to Spain with you, it’s been raining quite a bit apparently but the weather is supposed to be nice and mild.

    I love the outfit, very simple, casual, and comfortable. The pastel colors look so pretty together. And you’re so lucky! I’m sure you’ll have a lot of fun on your trip, I’m sure you’re excited. =)
