I have always loved getting all dolled up and going to school dances, but I hate the actual “school dance” part. This year’s Sadie’s Dance seemed to be an exception.
The annual guy/girl dance is a tradition for my dance team at school. Every year, the girls on the team ask a guy to be our dance partner. They perform with us at the Sadie’s Dance prep-rally and a basketball game usually held the night before Sadie’s. This year’s theme was Footloose!
It takes a brave soul to dance in front of our whole school… especially with me since my partner and I were front and center for this dance. Luckily, I have a good guy friend with a very outgoing personality. He was eager to get out on the gym floor and dance. I’m not exactly sure if he was ever nervous. If I may say so myself, I think he stole the show!
Unfortunately, the lighten in our gym isn’t exactly the best.
For the actual dance on Saturday night, I asked a friend of mine to be my date. I didn’t go all out when I asked him- just a simple sign and some brownies! We went with my a small group of my closets friends and had a wonderful time. Actually, this was the first dance I went to with a date that I actually enjoyed.
I’m not exactly sure why he isn’t wearing any shoes in any of our pictures, but oh well!
Big groups mean one thing: a big amount of drama. Since there was just four of us in the group, there was really no fuss. No one argued over where we ate, what time pictures would be, or what we would be doing afterwards. It was a peaceful, low-key night and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way!
The theme for Sadie’s was “Welcome to the Jungle”. I have always hated animal print, but when I picked up this Lilly
on sale for $25 at Belk
, I knew it would be perfect for this occasion!
I’m not big into buying a dress only to wear it once. I think that is why I have this habit of always wearing Lilly Pulitzer
to Sadie’s. The majority of my Lillys
can be dressed up or down and worn a million different ways. They are practical dresses that always make an impression, especially at a school dance.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
Keep it covered up.
