I have such fond memories of The Nutcracker—and ballet in general—from my early years of being a ballerina. I danced in this Christmas classic every December for many years. (I got to be Clara twice!) This year, my husband surprised me with tickets and I totally nerded out. I decided to wear an outfit inspired by the story of The Nutcracker. It was only fitting!
I would’ve worn a tutu, but I saved my husband the embarrassment and decided on the outfit below instead. Even if you’re not attending the ballet, this would make the perfect holiday outfit for any of your get-togethers.
