I was at Sadlers Wells on Saturday for the matinee and you don't need to worry about dressing up. Lots of knit type dresses with boots and scarf to keep out the chill, some more studenty boho types dressed down in jeans etc. If it's a nice treat for you post your DS then I would wear anything you like that makes you feel comfortable but a bit dressed up beyond usual day to day. And the ballet was fab-u-lous!
I took DD to a ballet matinee on Sat on a very cold day. I wore tall black boots, black opaques, a short black A-line Zara skirt, a bone colored fine merino cardigan, a string of big pearls and my new posh bag. I fit in well, was perhaps a tad more dressed-up than most other women there.
I am going to the ballet at Sadlers Wells next weekend and have no idea what to wear. It is the matinee performance and i'llbe having dinner in islington first, though not sure where yet. As its the afternoon I don't want to be too dressy but still want to make an effort. I recently had a baby so it's my first 'outing' since my DS arrived Any ideas ?
I am 29, 5ft 6, size 8-10 and am pale with long dark brown hair. Help!
