My Hips Don't Lie

Sweater: Kohl's (gifted), Dress: Thrifted (Ann Taylor Loft), Belt: Thrifted, Boots: Vintage Thrifted (Decades)
So I went to a Zumba class last  night. I know from my dancy feminine pose above you must be thinking, "OMG Sarah would be so good at Zumba!" Yup. Not the case my friends. Don't get me wrong I had a blast because lets face it shakin' that thang is fun. But I looka lika fool, the whole time. Whenever I didn't know what was going on I kind of did this little hip swivel to pretend like I had some sort of hispanic dancing skill  in me. And at one point they did this weird hop thing that I totally didn't get and ended up just resorting to an awkward hop that look kind of like something this guy would do.
We can't win them all right.
Don't worry I'm not giving up just yet. Before bed last night instead of practicing my berries and cream dance I did a full switch to the merenque, I'll be a shakin' pro in no time. I even promised myself I would practice so I didn't look like such a weinersnitzel next time. Except for I said I plomise. You know if you say it wrong that you're not really making a promise right? Check it. It's in the dictionary, I plomise.

  6. I love this outfit! You are the cutest! I was looking at dresses & skirts the other night on etsy & my husband caught me..."what are you looking at dresses for? you don't wear dresses." I told him I always wanted to wear dresses but that I look funny in them cause I don't look very girlie in them--"you have a girlie figure, you just have to find the right dresses." I thought it was funny...I own one skirt and I'm gonna wear it today...we'll see how it goes, lol. Happy April Fools Day!

  9. Oh don't worry I am the exact same way at zumba. I just figure everyone is so concentrated on the instructor they probably won't even notice me being ridiculously out of rhythm haha Love your cute dress, the colors are great!!

  12. My hips don't lie either. They clearly tell the world that I have ZERO rhythm. I look like a hyena on crack or something. It's not pretty. I'll use Zumba for the Wii but I will never, ever, ever do it in public. Not pretty. :)

  13. My cousin is a zumba instructor, and she has an amazing body. She went from a 14 to a 4 doing zumba. But, I just can't do it. I feel bad telling her some people can't be taught.

  20. I love that dress.
    Also those colors look amazing on you.

    I almost hit comment before mentioning that I cannot do zumba. I hated it. I went on my birthday no less. I said I'm never going again. I also did it on a bad knee. Way too much pivoting. Plus too much need to know the moves for me to like it.

  22. Beautiful outfit. I love how colorful it is. I've never tried Zumba. But I have heard that it is super difficult. And I'm totally not a coordinated person.

    P.S. We are having a giveaway over on my blog. I hope that you can come check it out.
