Fashion Friday – theatre casual from Seasalt

Recently I went to watch Twelfth Night at the Tobacco Factory. My main concern obviously was what to wear. I don’t get out much, especially in the evenings, and for a funky theatre like the Tobacco Factory I wanted something that looked sophisticated, but at the same time a bit like I might have come straight from a studio of some sort, having been working all day on a Very Important Creative Project. I also definitely had to give the impression that I read the Guardian.

The look that I was trying to capture we decided was theatre casual.

To achieve my theatre casual look I turned to Seasalt. Seasalt wouldn’t normally be a brand I would think of, but their range is actually rather beautiful and the winter jumpers currently on offer are decidedly cosy looking. For my trip to the Tobacco Factory I decided to go for:

The Larissa shirt

Super easy to look after because it doesn’t need ironing – a big plus in my eyes. It goes nicely with my glasses and is also very versatile – it can look great either simply with jeans or dressed up (casually of course) with…

The Wallflower skirt

I loved the subtle colour of this one, and the fact that it has pockets. Pockets are essential if you want to lounge around looking casual in theatre bars.

Finally, I topped the outfit off with what are possibly the most beautiful boots I have ever seen, let alone owned. These ribbon boots are made of leather so soft that when I first put them on I made an involuntary sighing noise. I’m not even joking. I normally have the hardest feet to please, but these haven’t caused one blister – they are an absolute joy.

Disclosure – Seasalt sent me these items for the purposes of review but all opinions are my own.

    I was sitting behind you at the first lecture at the women outside the box things the other day and kept getting distracted looking at your beautiful shoes and thinking ‘where are they from’ I was annoyed I never got the chance to ask you..and now I know! they are lush! x

    The only pre-theatre drinkie lounging I ever get chance to manage is in that pub next door to the hippodrome, the name of which I can never remember. Anything more than nearly-clean jeans is overdressed, but that doesn’t stop the twinset & pearls brigade.
