Steppin' Out Saturday: Dance Recital

We stepped out on Saturday for Isabelle's 5th dance recital.  It was an exciting day 
filled with beautiful costumes, sweet little ballerinas, and a room filled with proud family 
and friends.  Belle and I woke up early and spent our morning putting the finishing 
touches on her costumes, packing her bag and ensuring that every last detail was in 
place.  She stood patiently in my bathroom as I did her hair, constructing her bun 
and applying her stage make-up.  As parents, we've all heard how fast time flies when
 it comes to our children and this was one of those days that I really felt the speed 
and momentum.  Watching our little girl on that big stage with all her grace and poise, 
it was breathtaking.
Here's what we wore for the weekend...

How beautiful! Your dress is amazing, very feminine and soft. I am sure Isabelle was as proud of her mum as you were of her. Can't wait to see more, this reminds me so much our first ballet performance!
Stay well dear, much love.

That is such a pretty dress and I love how everything is so flowy - it looks whimsical!  I love wearing maxi dresses (or skirts) with sandals - you feel dressed up but casual at the same time!
