I LOVE this outfit. I feel so bohemian with all of my prints and gold jewelry. This coat is one of my absolute favorites--I can't believe I was ever on the fence about buying it. I think it makes any outfit infinitely more interesting. This is almost exactly what I wore to a dinner party with friends last weekend--I rarely repeat outfits on this blog, but that's why I don't post on the weekends! Anyway, I liked the combination so much that I wore it again yesterday. I had originally moved all of my pretty pastels to the front of the closet for this week, but it ended up being a lot colder and greyer than I was expecting so I had to improvise. Hopefully I'll be able to pull them out next week!

But enough about my outfit. Lyric's production of Chicago last night (opening night!) was so much fun! K and I got all dolled up (any excuse is good enough for me!), and I kept grabbing his arm and grinning like a lunatic when the opening bars of my favorite songs would start up. I'm such a musical theatre nerd. It's probably a good thing that I don't live anywhere near Broadway--my bank account would seriously suffer. Still, I couldn't help but think that I could have played Velma as well or better than the woman who had the part (although her 14-year involvement in the company probably would have given her quite the advantage even if I had actually decided to audition). It was definitely the most professional non-professional theatre production I've ever seen in Vermont, ever. I had such a great time.

And, just for kicks, here's how I've worn some of these items in the past:

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

  3. You look phenomenal! Very bohemian yet elegant! Now I want to go see a musical! Luckily I work in the theater district downtown, so I sometimes can go grab rush tickets for shows!

  6. This combination is great; I love all the colours together and the way the coat and scarf really warm up the appearance of the dress.

    And I love it when theatre productions turn out more professional than you were expecting (so often it's the other way around). I'm not the biggest fan of Chicago, but maybe that's because I've never seen it live.

  14. Hey! Not to sound stalkerish, but do you live in VT? I'm a native Vermonter (burlington area) who moved to NY a couple of years ago (tear). My family is still there so I visit as often as possible! If you are in Vermont, give her a big hug for me!!!
