Apartment acrobatics

When I was a kid I went to circus camp. There, now you know. It was really an arts camp but I was in love with circus. I lived for my summers on the circus lot. I spent hours upon hours swinging from ropes and trapezes, and when I relaxed it was in the flying trapeze net or curled up on some tumbling mats.
As an adult I don't spend much time swinging around on ropes, though I will scale a scaffolding structure once in awhile. This dress reminds me of the bright, colorful costumes we wore. Even without sequins, I feel like all eyes are on me in this.

  11. This post is so adorable it makes me want to squeal. You and that dress and the circus and especially that last photo! I remember you telling me you went to circus camp. That's so great. A friend I grew up with moved to Canada after graduating high school to go to circus school, and now he's in Cirque Du Soleil! I think it's the coolest thing!

    You are welcome to dance on my radiator any time you like!

  16. circus camp! as someone who grew up in a country where summer camp doesn't exist, I love hearing about obscure camps. the closest we get here is when some universities run camps before you start the course - my boyfriend went to engineering camp! #nerd.
    the print on that dress is really really pretty. I want it and am already mentally matching my accessories to it...

  17. your apartment is so cute! Circus camp sounds so fun. I went to this all children circus when I was little and always thought it would be so cool to learn circus things. Your shoes are amazing! I love how cobalt blue clogs magically go with everything.
