From Points to Heels

I have been trying to relax but it has been an impossible mission… The weather was not very helpful either, it was raining all day and I almost forgot we are supposed to be in summer! It is very depressing.

As those of you who follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram already know, today I will write about something I have been doing ever since I learnt how to walk. Dance.

My mother says I was a slow learner when it came to learn how to walk. However, I was much faster when it came to speak! It took me a while to be on two feet and she thought that dancing would help me be more lady-like. I want to believe she was right…

I like dancing very much, it is easy for me and I always receive very good critics. I practice every day, even when I am with exams at school or with the flu! You can only achieve perfection when you work hard and practice very much.

The bad consequences of all this dancing, however, include very ugly feet… Some students left the lessons because they did not want to have them! On the bright side, I can walk on 14.5 cm heels without hesitation. No matter how high the heels are, they will always be much more confortable than points!

I dream about becoming a famous ballerina someday and to own my own academy… Dreams, dreams, dreams…

Ugly Shoes are not Ugly

Today I want to share with you a much more casual and everyday outfit than the usual. I wear it to meet my friends, to hang out or to go to the cinema. I wear the skirt to my dance lessons sometimes. I assure you that this is not the last time you see it!

The key thing about this look is the fact that I wear an evening clutch as an everyday bag. It is super confortable and light and I could easy wear it with an evening dress and heeled sandals and look very appropiate.

The funny thing about this outfit are the shoes. The baker hated them since minute 1 and I could see disgust in her eyes through the lenses of the camera all the time. That is why there are no close ups of the shoes, I guess…

I like to be the kind of person who can easily wear a pair of Jimmy Choo stilettos or a pair of ugly shoes like these and not feel like I am losing part of my identity. I hate when people say that because of wearing a certain bag, dress or similar, they feel like some celebrity or they feel like they are better people. I am who I am and a pair of shoes will not change that. They will make me look slimmer, taller or more pretty but never like a different person.

I hope you like the outfit as much as I do.
