A Night at the Ballet...at the Dance Concert...at the Spring Recital...
Three weeks of rehearsals, late nights, nine shows and dressing up equals two tired souls! Emily, the only one who can dance from this Tee4Two partnership, has had a busy month in the world of dance. This means dressing up for shows that include Alice in Wonderland with the resident ballet company, NBT, school dance performances at the Las Vegas Academy of the Performing Arts, and spring recitals for her ballet school at NBT. It has been exhausting for all of us on one hand and magical on the other. Of course, part of the magic is getting to stock our closet with NEW clothes! We hit stores from Nordstrom to Forever 21 for everything from jumpsuits worthy of their own zip code to gingham shorts for after performance picture taking.
The Alice in Wonderland ballet was pure magic. It was fun to watch, the set was beautiful and the performers were stunning.
A night at the Smith Center for a ballet deserves something special and this Bardot Sienna Lace Jumpsuit definitely checked that box. It is at Nordstrom Rack right now for an unbelievable price and while you are there add to cart these Baublebar earrings! Fit is TTS and it is absolutely gorgeous. Pair it with these Sam Edelman leopard print Patti ankle strap sandal and you can walk all night feeling like a trendy princess.
School dance concerts are a little more casual but still deserve some fashion love. We hit Forever 21 for some fun outfits and gingham won hands down.
With our love for gingham these high-waisted, tie-front shorts were a number one pick. We love the simplicity of this smocked tube top plus, lets be honest, smocking so helps with keeping a tube top where it is supposed to be!
We also donned this BB Dakota Sunshine of my Life Maxi from Shopbop that screams fun summer nights. Shoes for Emily, Converse oh yes, and for Kristin, Marc Fisher LTD espadrilles for the win! These Baublebar earrings, of course, and yes, we have a baublebar problem. :) Bonus, grab both the shoes and the earrings at Nordstrom Rack!
Last week was all about spring recitals for ANBT, the dance school at Nevada Ballet Theatre. We carried around about a half-dozen costumes but to wear to and from, Emily's love for lululemon runs deep for the fit and comfort it provides over her dance wear. Studio pants are perfect for slipping over tights and the Define Jacket is, for lack of a better word, our everything!
Even though the spring dance recitals had us back at the Smith Center, volunteering meant Kristin needed glam outfits that were comfortable. Bring in the ever popular Leith dress from Nordstrom! This dress can transition from casual with sneaks to a night out with heels (hmmmm let's just say those Sam Edelman leapard Patti's were put to work this week). Add in some Baublebar statement earrings from NordstromRack and cool mom might just be two words heard during that night out!
Handbags are the one accessory that we haven't yet mentioned. This Tory Burch camera bag from Nordstrom is currently in our cart for our next night out and we wanted to share it with you because IT IS ON SALE and IT IS FABULOUS! Oh this bag...we just might need one each!
We truly are exhausted but wouldn't change all the wonderful experiences we were part of the last three weeks. Coming up next on the blog are some amazing Memorial Day sales that we will post as we find them and it looks like some of the goodies we wore over the last three weeks will be at prices that are so good! Let's just say we have heard Clear the Rack is coming this week for NordstromRack!!! We are off next weekend for a wedding in Colorado so we will be adding in fun dresses to wear to weddings as we go.
