current obesssions wednesday: missing my life's calling in dancing + a giveaway WINNER!!

 tee: HM / skirt, tights: f21 / sandals: kristen davis, belk
headband: courtesy of Making Lemonade / nails: sally hansen sonic boom

so blame my dancing mood on my weekly obsession over Dancing with the Stars. totally didn't expect to get into it as much as i have. it all started with my first childhood crush, ralph macchio (remember him? wax on! wax off, baby!). after i watch an DWTS episode, i realized that i missed my calling. i always get the urge to get off the couch to dance - but alas, i'm nothing but a mess of arms and legs and no rhythm. oh, well. i live vicariously through the stars...for now. 

dancing with the stars.

see the DWTS judges?
i told you i mssed my calling. they're giving me 10s.

yellow heart art.

so did not expect this ultra incredible surprise at all and am obsessed with it.
i recieved this lovely Yellow Heart Art print and got this surprise!
leonora got it all right, didn't she? my fave cardigan, shoes, tights and all!
(oh and if you've never checked out her shop. do it. now. you'll be obsessed, too.)
