    A great urban ballerina look! All the elements are very simple, and yet the whole outfit exudes edginess.

    Another inspiring look. I have been following your post for a while. I just want to thank you for photographing ordinary people who dress for the life they are living, instead of editors and models on the street, dressing for the photographer.

    Enjoy the short dance like flowing top with the ballet shoes. She certainly looks like she has a spring in her dance step and some style moves.

    Ballet shoes are a great, unexpected touch. They add an unexpected sweetness to the look without hijacking it. Intense and confident expression makes her seem like somebody whose opinion I’d like to know.

    I have seen a couple of cropped fitted tops paired with large flowing skirts, but it is the first time I see the opposite: a cropped loosely fitted top with a form hugging skirt. The result is quite interesting…:-)

    Crop tops:a necessity for the season. Love how she pairs it with a pencil skirt to change it from dressy to casual. Digging the monochromatic look!
