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.
Here I am, lounging casually in the theatre:
And here are my boots, settling in nicely at home. *sighs lovingly*
What would you wear to create a theatre casual look?
P.S. I am adding this post to the Mummy’s Got Style Fashion Friday linky.
Disclosure – Seasalt sent me these items for the purposes of review but all opinions are my own.
