A Night at the Ballet

A night at the NYCB, vintage dress and blazer, Free People boots

Totally realize that the quality of these shots is on the very poor side, but I've always said that this blog is about showcasing my real style and not so much planned outfits with overproduced photography.

And this scenario is one of those times where life was happening and I was wearing a cool ensemble that I wanted to capture cause I deemed worthy of sharing with you here on the blog. My hopes are always to inspire your own styles by proving how easy and fun fashion can be, and that requires for me to demonstrate actual genuine style scenes.

Ok so now that I am done justifying the poor quality of these photos, I'm going to give them context: I wore this to go to the ballet a few weeks ago. I felt like dressing up but obviously never the way that is expected. Simple as layering an oversized blazer (preferably vintage) on top of an on-trend 70s dress (again, preferably vintage).

Literally two easy pieces that make for a look that doesn't telegraph plain, but that feels uncomplicated and appropriate. Because that's how one should feel when seeing Swan Lake at Lincoln Center.

I always have the hardest time getting good photos. My husband takes them for me and well I love him, but he's not the best photographer! lol Plus with the days getting shorter its even harder. But I love this outfit, so perfect for the ballet!
