dear little orange blossom..

dress, cardigan, headband: h&m
shoes : topshop
A first for me last night; a trip to the opera. I'd never been before but was intrigued when I saw the adverts for it back when I went to watch the ballet last year. We saw Madam Butterfly, which was lovely.

I decided on these boots, which I think I last wore when I went to the theatre, weirdly enough. I found this dress, one of my favourites from years ago, but I can't remember the last time I wore it, so I decided to give it an outing,along with one of my favourite cardigans as well. I think they go quite nicely with the boots as well (I'd been considering a pair of flat shoes instead, due to the snow, but I'm glad I didn't!)

This morning I'm trying to make sure I don't do anything to make my cracked tooth worse before going back to the dentist on Saturday, as well as trying to organise allotment insurance renewals and finish off about a million and one things I need to get sorted for guides and rangers meetings this week - how can I fit some more time in to the day?

  6. Oooh, can we see a close up of the hair please? It looks all Regency!!!! Lovely dress and beautiful for the opera! Did you cry? I love 'One fine day'- such a beautiful song! Madame Butterfly was my very second paid gig, playing in the pit orchestra for it and I adored it!!!
