Class Outfits: Très Pink

We have no dress code in my dance school. Anything goes as long as it's form-fitting and class-appropriate. Not that I would mind regulation wear, but it's much more fun to choose your own style!  I like to mix it up: pink tights, purple leggings, black cut-offs on top of pink tights, shorts, skirts, long-sleeved tees pulled down and tied as skirts. Leos in hot pink, jade, lilac, black, red and white. Self-made tops from leggings and tights, preferably in funky colors. T-shirts with ballet logos/prints. I might even wear the occasional fake flower in my hair!

Today, I feel like pink.

  1. Wow, that's a LOT of pink!
    I think the only pink items I have are my tights and shoes. Why is ballet associated with pink so much? Is it because of the tights?
    I do have a bright royal blue leotard that is my favorite.

  2. The skirt is actually red, and the shoes a peachy pink colour. The light in this photo is filtered through red curtains! :)

    But good question about the pink. Considering that pink tights don't even look pink on your legs, more like a blush white. And pointe shoes are for the most part a peachy/champagne colour. I'm guessing because ballet class is so strongly associated with little girls, hence the pink. Although when I was a little girl, pink was seen only on Barbie dolls. The same colour as my leo! LOL! :D

    Royal blue sounds lovely - and is still missing in my colour collection..

  4. Ahhh, pink! It's so pretty! Honestly, after I hit 10 I thought I'd never be able to wear pink again to ballet without looking like an idiot in my dance classes. Now, I've been inspired again!

    I know that DDS sells that bloch leo online... mind if I copy you a bit? ;) :P

    I love reading your blog, and seeing your "Class Outfits" posts. I do hope you post some more! I love the pics, and you sound like one stylish dancer! :D

    1. I do not mind anyone copying my style - but should you come to the same class in the same pink leo.. Nah, that would be fun too, we would have to dance side by side! ;)

      I never wore pink as a girl, but then again I never took ballet until I was 21. This pink is more hot than little-girl-candy-pink, and the leo's cut is elegant enough to make it a woman's outfit. And the color is a real energy boost!

      As you can see from my lates "Class Outfits" post, I'm not over my pink phase yet :)

    1. No, I did not. Actually, the color is a bit off in this photo. The sunlight was too strong, so I drew the curtains - which filtered the light a pinkish shade! The shoes are peachy in color, like you can see on Bloch's web site. Sorry about the mislead! ;)
