I thought I'd do a different sort of post today! I've noticed not many bloggers talk about what to wear to events and so I thought i'd show you all what I'd wear if I was heading to the Opera. I've always wanted to see an English National Opera show. I used to live with 4 music students during my first year at university and so I found out a lot about music then and they always loved a trip to the Opera. They recommended seeing The Queen of Spades Opera which I'd love to go and see.
I think when it comes to posh events such as the Opera you have to make a real effort with your appearance but not look too polished. I think sticking to a simple monochrome palette for an event like this you can never go wrong. I love this check tie shirt dress and think it would look great with black tights and some block heels like this pair. You can never go wrong with a simple floor length dress or jumpsuit as you can accessorise the outfit however you want and they are such versatile pieces.
What would you wear to the Opera? Which piece on the wish list is your favourite?
