What Should Two Style Bloggers Wear to the Theatre

When did ewe  you ,oh heck, ewe last go to the theatre? I haven't been for a good couple of years, yet London and Shaftesbury Avenue is on my doorstep! So when Gail of Is this Mutton suggested that the two Mouton graze a spot of lunch and then head off to see Mary Stuart at the Duke of York theatre I jumped at the chance.  It may be that two ewes would stand out in the circle so we joined the herd in the stalls. 

There was a bit of debate on attire, was wool too warm or would the theatre have such high air con that fleece would be perfect.  On the day the weather turned unseasonably mild so I went shorn of my yarn and wore acrylic. 

Do you ever base an outfit around one single item? I did. I was determined, absolutely adamant that I was going to wear statement boots....this time. You recollect my lack of said item  last time I was with Gail which I mentioned on on my post. Four Fashion Bloggers on the London Eye

This time my boots were on and I had no reason to feel sheepish.

Trousers were cropped and my feet dressed to dangle casually as I sat with my legs crossed at the restaurant waiting for Gail.

 My top was a grey Kettlewell Colours batwing tunic which complimented my snake print boots.

On top I wore a leather Massimo Dutti jacket in a light caramel, again picking out the colour in the boots.   For warmth I added a burgundy scarf with silver strands.  I picked this up in December at Brighton Marina in a little gift shop.

Trudging up to London entails carrying quite a bit so I used a largish bag. This is from Marks & Spencer in an oxblood type of colour.

You would be forgiven for thinking we may be going to see 'Mouton' Rouge, or perhaps

Maybe we the thought we were the

but yes, as it says,  in our dreams!

No, we were far more academic.  We saw a drama about Elizabeth I's dilema over her half sister Mary and the torment that she and Mary went through in those last few days.  Who should Elizabeth believe?  What would the ramifications be of executing a monarch?  Was Mary really guilty?  Who in her circle could she trust for impartial advice?  It was a rich drama from a small cast.  If you are a history buff and theatre goer do take a look at this play officiallondontheatre mary-stuart

At one time you did almost lose two UK style bloggers as we leaned over a balcony to take a pic, which I call a bit of an Abfab moment in its ridulousness, given our age.  We should know better. 

Before the play we popped in to Brontes just off Trafalgar square and had what we hoped was a relitively low calorie lunch,

and took advantage of a boots were made for walking photo opportunity.  I am really pleased at the effect here of taking a photo within a photo, even though I say it myself.
