Flying Monkey Skinny Jeans, Tribal Inspired Jewelry and a Dance Recital

Princess Sparkles had her first dance performance
at an outdoor theater this past weekend. 
The family had a picnic while we watched the show.
Sparkles had a costume with sequins, her hair in a bun.
And she was especially excited to wear make-up and get flowers.

FLUTTER TOP - Tramp (via Loehmanns), $8
BLACK SKINNIES - Flying Monkey (via Anonymous)
CAGE HEELS - Kelsi Dagger (via Loehmanns), $11
INDIAN CUFF - Heavenly Treasures
NECKLACE - Made by my mom

Monday's Inspiration - Carrie Underwood

I know it's Tuesday but here's my "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds.  I wore black Flying Monkey skinnies from Anonymous.  I love them so much.  They are form fitting and flattering yet comfy.  The top and the shoes I got on the clearance rack at Loehmanns.  As for the jewelry, my mom, Fair Isle, has been making a lot of tribal inspired necklaces.  This is one of the pieces she let me borrow.

The girls dress up in dance attire.

Lately other moms have been so kindly complimenting me on my appearance.  They're impressed that I have 3 kids and still dress up.  Honestly it's the blog that keeps me accountable.  And although I'm tired, like Princess Sparkles, I get a thrill out of getting dressed up and wearing make-up!
