joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

Since the day was all about the kids, I decided to dress up in a respectable yet approachable manner. I didn't want to seem to be too stiff and rigid but I also wanted to look credible enough that they would listen to my insights, experiences and basically what I wanted to say. I finally decided on this outfit which is both playful and quirky combined with functional, elegant and conservative... and definitely something child-friendly (because seriously, who does not love tulle and tutus?). I am an advocate of situational dressing when it comes to fashion so as much as possible I want to be creative enough to show the people I am meeting or the event I am going to that I actually took time to think and plan my outfit in advance. I think that doing so is one of the sincerest forms you can show respect to someone. I believe that sometimes, even the smallest and most mundane gestures such as these are the ones that people tend to remember more often. So I headed on to my talk in this playful plaid top (I chose red as I think it is a color that retains attention as it is striking) and kept the playhouse-themed look I wanted to go for consistent via my white long tutu skirt which is something that personally, I never grew out of since I was a child and up to adulthood. I used to dance ballet so my love affair with tulle has been something that has been going on for so long and I don't think I have plans of letting it go any time soon. This ensemble was a mixture of quirky eccentricity and tasteful sophistication which was the look I was going for on that day. More so, it allowed me to be comfortable to move around and to have fun with the kids as it was very easy to wear. The verdict: I could not have picked out any better or suitable outfit for this occasion and I am so happy I decided on this look.
