What I Wore to the Ballet: Floral Dress & OTK Boots + Weekend Sales
Surprise! You get a bonus outfit post on the eve of Christmas Weekend! I thought it’d be fun to share with you what I wore to my first ballet show, after-the-show shenanigans and alert you on some weekend sales!
When Katie over at Avant Chamber Ballet reached out to me and asked if I’d like to attend a ballet show and bring some of my friends, I totally agreed for three reasons. First, I have never been to a ballet before, especially one at Christmas. Second, as a former dancer, I wanted to nerd out, haha! And lastly, I wanted my friends to experience the world of dance with me!
I hadn’t planned on taking an outfit photo, but Rachie wanted me to since all the lights were so pretty. Definitely couldn’t deny that, haha! We tried to wait awhile as a blogger was doing her own shoot.
Well, she was taking forever and Rachie was dying, haha! So Tori and Kimmy got to witness my fashion blogging shoots in-person. They were shocked at how fast Rachel and I were and made me laugh so much!
In the end, I’m happy Rachie made me take photos of what I wore to the ballet! Oh and the girl was still there shooting when we got done!
Outfit: Floral Dress (purchased before The Limited closed and reopened; loveee this similar dress) | Overcoat (old; similar black overcoat) | OTK Boots (affordable and very similar OTK boots) | Lace Clutch: Jason Wu x Target (old; similar lace clutch) | Elle Earrings
Makeup: Foundation for oily skin (my absolute favorite and worth the splurge! I’m shade 7!) | Undereye Concealer (quickly becoming my favorite! I’m shade Ginger) | Eyeshadow Palette (I used Elated, Chipper and Sincere) | Liquid Eyeliner (this does NOT budge!) | Eyebrow Pencil (been using this for about four years!) | Nude Lipstick in Intense Nude (one of my favorite nude lipsticks under $30; creamy and isn’t drying!) – I use all of these products daily!
Fun fact: The blogger was still shooting and she was directly behind me in these shots! Yep, Rachie is that good. We make a great team, haha! Sorry for the blurry night photos, but gotta make do with what you got, right? I can’t imagine what my photos will look like once I get my awesome camera for blogging and vlogging!
