Happy Wednesday dolls! Yesterday was the big day for my daughters Emi (13) and Chloe (11). They had their big dance audition for the distinguished ballroom dance program at Orange County School of the Arts, a performing arts charter school for 7th – 12th grades. The girls have been preparing for this moment for months with weekly dance lessons, private coaching, and practice sessions. We all couldn’t believe this day had finally come!?! Last night reminded me of the beautiful and inspiring saying “the world is your oyster” and I am excited to share our experience with you!

We arrived on time thinking it was going to be a simple 30 minute audition only to find out at check in it was a two hour long process! I was so proud the girls didn’t freak out and held their composure throughout the entire audition experience.  Parents were lined up in the dance hallway in anticipation for their kids’ big moment. On our drive up I reminded them that how important it was to be confident, feel comfortable in your own skin, and act positively during the audition process; and most importantly to have fun! The saying the “world is your oyster” was a theme in our conversation. I love what this phrase means. Have you heard the saying the “world is your oyster” before? I pose the question to you because I have only heard it recently myself.

Even though the girls said they messed up on some steps and doubted their responses to the interview questions they felt proud and relieved they made it through. We will find out in April if Emi and Chloe got accepted. So, please cross your fingers and toes for us! I have always instilled in my children the mindset that you can achieve and do anything you want in life!  If they don’t get in this year…they can try again next.  The important thing they need to remember is to continue trying and that the world is theirs and they can do what they want in their lives as long as they continue to dream and work for it.

My over-sized pearl denim jacket in my style post reminds me of the phrase “the world is your oyster!” The white pearl details symbolize wealth, luck, beauty, and integrity all of which create the perfect formula for success! I hope you are inspired to follow your dreams too….don’t give up and believe in yourself.

    Love that denim is making a comeback! I had one in the 80’s that I loved and hated getting rid of!

    This pearl jacket is just so beautiful. I love that denim jackets are such a trend these days, it’s definitely something that I’ve been loving. Also, seeing different styles is awesome, just like this one!

    I love this look, the velvet top paired with the double denim really suits you. I love a great denim jacket I think they pair so well with so many things.

    I’m a child of the 70s and wore jeans every single day of my life. I still love them and am so happy denim is back. (Although it never goes out of style.)

    • February 22, 2018 / 1:01 pm

      Hi Cherri! You are definitely right about that! Thank you for your sweet message!

    That’s a cute jacket. With the pearl embellishments it dresses the coat up. I had a Jean jacket but it got taken back by my teen when she realized after I gave it to her and took it back that it was a really cool staple for the closet.

    I really love that blue. It’s such a good color choice for velvet. It adds to the richness of the fabric.

    Ooo love the accessories. Especially the fun snakeskin bag!

    Pearls on a denim jacket…how did I not know this was a thing? So cute!!

    This is such a fun twist on the classic denim jacket, which is a staple in my wardrobe. The color reminds me of my favorite denim jacket from high school. So glad to see the light washed style has made a come back.

    Absolutely love the connection you made between your daughters going after their dream and the pearl denim jacket. I’ve heard of the saying back in College and always have been inspired by it. Great that you’re instilling this into your children. I’m positive your girls did an amazing job at their audition. Best of luck to them babe.
