I’m so happy to be writing this week. I’ve been so busy lately with making sure this blog is fully ready to launch that I haven’t been able to upload any new content! However, I have officially finished setting up this new blog and I’m committing to uploading new posts every week! 🙂 This is my first official original post on this blog and it’s a long time coming. I’m going to tell you all about my first ever Homecoming dance! 🙂
As a sophomore in high school, I had already witnessed the whole Homecoming production. However, as a freshman I did not attend the dance or really participate in all the festivities. This year, though, I went all in and it proved to be so much fun!
For those of you who are familiar with homecoming, you know that each day of that week has a different theme within the overall theme that you dress down in. The theme of my homecoming week was Disney! On Monday, the theme was characters. However, I forgot to take a picture of my outfit that day so, I don’t have anything to show you. However, I did remember for the rest of the week 🙂 Tuesday’s theme was tacky tourist! Although my outfit (pictured above,) doesn’t really fit into the “tacky” category, I made up for it in props. I spent the day walking around with disposable cameras, selfie sticks, and lanyards galore!
Top and Backpack- Zara
Jeans- Marc by Marc Jacobs
Shoes- Sperry Topsider
Watch- Kate Spade NY
The theme for Wednesday was Disney parks! So, I went for the classic Magic Kingdom Minnie Mouse look (pictured above). I kept it simple and just wore black, red, and my Minnie ears 🙂
Minnie Ears- Walt Disney World
Turtleneck- Calvin Klein
My favorite outfit of the week was Thursday’s by far 🙂 The theme was the 1960s! I wore a headscarf, a striped turtleneck, black pants, and flats. I styled my hair like a classic ’60s bob and completed the look with a bold makeup look 🙂
Scarf- Urban Outfitters
Flats- Michael Kors
Another fun thing happened on Thursday… I got my eyebrows done for the first time ever! In preparation for the dance, I went with my mom to get eyebrows threaded after class on Thursday. I will admit that I was nervous beforehand but I absolutely loved it and loved the result! The lady who did my eyebrows was very kind and did it quickly and painlessly 🙂
Friday’s theme was color wars! I dressed in red and black to be in the class color and went for a bright red eye look!
Top and Jacket- Zara
Jeans- Calvin Klein
I spent the rest of the day on Friday preparing for the dance the next day. I went to get my nails done and tried to relax and go to sleep early that night.
Saturday was the big day! I woke up very early to attend the Confirmation of a close friend and spent the afternoon at her house celebrating and getting ready for the dance. I decided to do my own hair and makeup (with the help of my friends and family,) for the dance which worked out perfectly and saved me money 🙂
All in all, the entire experience was so much fun and the dance was amazing! I went with about 11 of my friends and we had such a great time dancing and taking pictures. I absolutely suggest going to your high school homecoming dance, even if you only go once, just for the experience. You won’t regret it!
