live your passion


Today I'm combining two of my passions in life: one, blogging (which I'm so happy to be back doing!) and two, dancing. I was a competitive dancer for most of my life, but when I started University, school held me back. Finally, after a year or so, I'm taking a class downtown and I could not be more excited. What are you passionate about? I'm definitely learning that it's important to make time for the hobbies and activities that make me happy. Where would we be if all we did was study or work all day?



These photos were taken by the lovely Kelly Swanson of Kelly Swanson Photography. Isn't she amazing? This outfit is so comfortable when paired with flats, but can instantly be sophisticated with some great accessories and heels. My mom helped me out this time by suggesting this vintage belt, and I loved the way it looked. And ps... these pants were only $10. Can you believe it?! Have an amazing Wednesday!

  4. Beautiful photos Chelle!

    Dance is an important part of my life too, although I'm nowhere near as accomplished a dancer as you must be. I just go out for salsa to blow off some steam.

  16. These photos are just beyond stunning, as is your beautiful blog. I just stumbled upon your darling space and I have to tell you, I'm officially in love. Your style is simply lovely and your photos are gorgeous :) Dance used to be one of my passions as well, but in recent years I've moved on to running. It's just so relaxing.
