It was such a beautiful Easter weekend. I had work late on Saturday night, and my sister was in town with her new beau so I was a little busy entertaining, but Sunday was relaxing and lovely. Just as it should be. When we took an afternoon walk the flowers and trees were blooming and we could hear the church bells ringing from blocks away. Even the sunset was paying tribute to the day with Easter hues. Joyeuses pâques.
Here’s a glance at what I’ve been wearing and where I’ve been going, from the top down.
I’m gearing up for the Ballet West Couture in Motion Fashion Show on May 9th and I can’t wait to see how everything turns out. This is my last big fundraising event of the season and it’s a full sprint to the finish. We’re partnering with the extremely talented Heidi Gress and her team at HMG Productions for the runway portion of the evening. She’s collecting some pretty incredible couture pieces for the show, and the final lineup is going to be amazing. Remember when I posted a preview of the museum photo shoot? Well here’s another behind-the-scenes glimpse of beautiful people wearing stunning clothing in a gorgeous space. Nice video work Heidi and Logan. Tickets to the upcoming event can be purchased here.
April and May will be full of receptions and events for me. Between roughly 14 performances and 3 events at the Ballet, plus a few other events in the community, I’ll be dressing up quite a bit. I’m trying to make due with the standard wardrobe pieces I already have, but if I were going to pick up another piece or two it would be these little black beauties from ASOS. You just can’t go wrong with a black dress.

Tis the season for spring Galas in Salt Lake. This past weekend I was invited to join my friends from Every Blooming Thing (my go-to for all things floral) at their Ririe-Woodbury Gala table. It’s always fun to get dressed up and spend the evening with community members who are giving back to the arts. And the wonderful thing about galas for dance companies – you get a one-of-a-kind performance. The Gala was held at the Natural History Museum, with a view looking out over the whole valley. The grand hall of the museum is uniquely split between three or four gradual levels. These levels are separated by small bannister-like platforms of wood, which creatively became the spaces for the performance element. The dancers were talented, the food was delicious, the dinner company was fabulous, and the decor was lovely. Overall – a stunning night.
Remember when I wrote about how anxious I was to turn thirty? Well, that day is here and I’ve decided to embrace it with some birthday humor. Jessica, this is for you.
