Can I just pretend to be a graceful ballerina for one day? Because I'm the least graceful person in the world, says my mom and the scars on my knees.

I loved wearing this. All black? YES. I kept it simple with no jewelry to let my sparkly headband speak for itself. It may have been too simple but all black is never too simple. It's classic.

Confession:  I hate headbands. I used to wear them 24/7 when I was little so I associate it with being a little girl. I may have watched too many episodes of Gossip Girl because I'm slowly leaning towards them... If you're in a rush, put your hair up in a loose, messy bun and wear a headband to keep the extra hair out of your face and you're all set. Like I said...EASY, right??

  2. Nice one. I like how you wore the head band to brighten up an all-black outfit. Very cute!

  4. I've always sort of shied away from all black (too many orchestra performances, maybe?), but I seriously love this.  So classy!

  5. Looks great! Love the headband! Growing out my fringe into one I can wear up or on the side in hopes of being able to do my hair differently. Love buns and headbands!

  9. Very classy!  I don't care for headbands either.  They always hurt my head....but maybe my head is too big.  Cheers for all black!!!

  12. Cute "ballerina" outfit! I don't like headbands that are plastic, I'll occasionally wear fabric or something soft, though they usually give me headaches.

  13. Classic outfit! I enjoy the simplicity of it. Love the skirt - I didn't see it when I stopped by F21 lately. Although, the power went out when I was browsing, so I probably missed LOTS of cute stuff. : p
    BTW, just posted an outfit inspired by you ... http://petalbypetal11.blogspot.com/2012/01/little-victories-hint-of-mustard.html. Thanks for the inspiration! :)

  15. This is, like, the perfect teacher outfit for me. It's just so cold right now that I think I'll have to add a pair of black opaque tights!

  16. You look so pretty - Just like a graceful ballerina :) I wear alice bands every once in while, mostly when I'm wearing a plain outfit to make it a little more dressy !

  17. Love this look! it seems perfect for a day of errands (especially if you're running places with people you don't want to look awful in front of) or even for shopping- the simplicity/no-fuss style seems perfect for changing in and out of clothes or rushing to the best sales rack.

  18. Absolutely love this outfit!  Whenever my hair isn't behaving, up in a bun with a headband it goes...I always consider myself a figure skater, but ballerina works too.

    Beautiful outfit-love the headband!
