Opera Outfit

What to wear to the Opera?
Last Sunday, my husband and I went to see 'Nathan Gunn' at the Kennedy Center in DC.
Depending on the opera house dress code, you will never go wrong if you look semi-formal. Some places might ask to avoid wearing casual clothes. In this case, they did not specify a dress code.
I was thinking about this outfit while I was taking a shower! This outfit was appropriate and besides I've been wanting to wear these gorgeous pumps and blazer and this was a fabulous excuse.
I also thought about wearing a chic pencil skirt and a cute top or a blouse, but I went for the first idea (maybe next time I used this second idea because pencil skirts are also elegant and sophisticated). Using this beautiful bejeweled clutch was a great way to make an outstanding statement since I kept my jewelry delicate.

El Domingo pasado, mi esposito y yo fuimos a ver a 'Nathan Gunn' a el Kennedy Center en DC.
Dependiendo del codigo de vestimenta, nunca fallaras si te vistes semi-formalmente. Algunos lugares no permiten ropa casual. En este caso no rquirieron ropa muy formal como vestidos largos o uxedos.
Estuve pensando en este vestuario mientras me bañaba! Este look es apropiado y ademas ya venia queriendo vestir estos bellos zapatos y blazer y que mejor bella excusa que esta.
Tambien estuve pensando en vestir una falda lapiz o tubo con una blusa o top, pero al final vesti mi primera idea (quizas la proxima vez vista mi segunda idea ya que las faldas tubo tambien son elegantes y sofisticadas). Use este bello sobre de piedritas que se ve como una joya el cual resalta y mantuve mis joyas delicadas.
