I am not worried about what she is going to wear and how her hair will be done. Her dance school almost literally wrote the rules in stone on how they should look and how the hair should be styled. MadiMel will be in 3 different dance scenes, Ballet, Contemporary and Hip-Hop. This has been her third year of dance at the same dance school. Third recital she has been a part of and my third time, for a recital, trying to figure out what to wear!
It is hot in Metro Atlanta, yes the recital is indoors, but again...it is hot, humid and sticky. We are also talking about taking pictures with friends...outside, chatting with other parents...outside, running around to get ourselves ready for and after the show. The first year, I wore a maxi dress with heeled sandals. The second year, leggings, camisole, a sleeveless belted sweater...and of course, heels!
My attendance at this year's recital, I decided to not wear heels. It saddens me because I love wearing heels (laughs)! Seriously, I love them. At times, when I come back home with a pair of shoes, without looking, my husband will say, "I hope you bought a pair of flat shoes." And of course I laugh because I obviously did not.
So now, I decided not to wear heels this time around and wear flat sandals instead. I just need to figure out what to wear though. I am planning on digging through my closet and figuring it out. I may have another maxi dress in there somewhere that I can wear. Accessorizing to compliment the dress and adding a sweater to give it a different classy look.
I know I'm making this more challenging than it should be. But that is okay :-) I'll figure it out before Sunday this week. And I will keep you posted!
