A little life update: I got a job in PR! And they are allowing me to work part time since I am still dancing and auditioning. I was honestly so against going into the corporate world for the longest time because I didn’t think I would be allowed to have a real, degree-needed, job, and not have to be full time. I had prayed about it over and over, and even cried about it countless times. I knew I had to get my big girl job at some point, but the thought of not being able to dance anymore because of it literally killed me, as it is something I don’t want to give up. I take class and audition during the week, and you can’t necessarily do that with a full time job. My agency even said to us when we signed, “You cannot be a professional dancer & have a full time job at the same time.” So luckily, I am even allowed to pick what days and hours I work. So there’s that!
P.S. Last few days left to enter the $100 gift card giveaway to Robert Wayne Footwear!

How cute!!! I love that top and it looks super cute with the shorts! Congratulations on your job, unfortunately dancers have such short life span that you need a “real” job at some point. How awesome that you can gain experience while you still dance and train. My aunt was a ballerina in national ballet company and she retired at 36 due to the demands of age to her body.I hope the very best for you, Hayley!
Thank you, Maria! LOVE that your aunt was a ballerina! And love that fact that she continued to do it until she was 36. That’s amazing! And so inspiring! Dancers definitely have a clock ticking with how long we can continue to do it for. :( But I hope to be doing what I can with it for as long as your aunt did! <3
The top is LOVELY :) Bisous from France, *-* Sand. *-*

Best of luck to you :) I’ve been in PR for over 20 years now, and whilst there are bits which I’d rather do without, I can’t imagine doing anything else. Every day is a new challenge, an eye-opener. In other news, your top is glorious!!!
It sounds like you found the perfect balance! Congrats! You look adorable too:)
