Yesterday evening I was in London with my family to see one of my favourite musicals Wicked. I've always been a fan of musical theatre and when I saw Wicked in Year 7 with the school I loved everything about it and really resonated with aspects of the characters. Going to the theatre in the evening gives a perfect excuse to don something a bit more formal than your everyday gear so I wore my new dress from Monki that I purchased from their amazing Carnaby Street store last week. This dress really reminds me of the monochromatic 60s look that was everywhere during the S/S13 shows however the midi length and t-shirt style fit stops it looking dated. Being just under 5"5 I have to be careful when it comes to longer styles so pairing the dress with a slight heel was the best option - these boots work well as they keep the outfit a bit more wearable for any time of day. My mum surprised me with this lovely bag a few days ago and I decided to use it to break up the monochrome ensemble and add a pop of colour.
