Sugar Plum Fairy

 My outfit last night as I attended a board meeting for planning a fundraising event for a non profit organization. You will see the outfit I wore earlier in the day. I swapped the tulle skirt with the cream mini from my line and added this soft tweed cardigan and a belt.

 This was our matching outfits to see the Nutcracker Ballet on Wednesday!

I got the idea for this color combination from this lookbook photo of 'Threadsence' website:
I kind of liked these dark colors with the stark light tulle skirt...

Our trip to the ballet was great. We read the book twice a few nights before the performance so my daughter knew the story plus she has been taking ballet for a few months now so we kept identifying the moves. We got lucky and sat in the very front row which was awesome. I watch pretty much solely their feet so front row seats were perfect.
It was such a pleasure sharing the experience with my daughter. Her favorite part was the dances in the 'land of sweets' and the 'sugar plum fairy'.
