I'm Only Dancing…

In my wilder days, I went dancing pretty much every week. I’d get all decked out: dresses, crazy eyeliner, red lipstick, heels (you know, ‘the works’) and hold beer bottles in the air while busting moves all night long to the sweet sounds of The Smiths. These days, the weekend tends to find me at home with the Mainsqueeze, doing quiet and vaguely productive things like baking, reading, going for walks and listening to records while admiring the cat. I’m not unhappy about it (it’s called growing up!), but sometimes my old wild self just wants to play dress-up and shake it on the dance floor. And so tomorrow, after a much needed haircut and a stop at the huge Goodwill right by my house (belts!), the Mainsqueeze and I are cutting loose and going dancing. I am so excited to create an outfit for the occasion, it’s bordering on ridiculous. Should I wear my new brown oxfords or my new grey pumps? Teal shorts or purple dress? Should I break out the lipstick? My closet will surely take a beating as I rifle through it looking for the perfect ensemble, but I can tell you one item I’m definitely going to be sporting: tights! One of Stylesight’s trend reporters just got back from London Fashion Week bearing streetstyle pics and of course I immediately jumped on them for inspiration. What did I see on a multitude of legs? Tights! I’m dying for a mustard colored pair, and am also excited to combine them with socks and open-toed shoes.
