Les Mis in Pastels

Details: Gap Sweater / Talbots Skirt via Avalon ($10!) / Nine West Shoes via TJ Maxx / J.Crew Factory Necklace / Target Bangles

I attended the Pittsburgh performance of Les Misérables yesterday. I loved it! Admittedly, I only became a fan of the musical after seeing the movie. So as you can imagine, I was very excited to see the live performance. When the tickets came up on Groupon, I snatched them up.  Even after I could not get anyone to go with me, I decided that I didn’t care going alone.

Going to an event like that alone is such a different experience. If you’re late or if you cry, only the strangers sitting next to you know about it, which is how I prefer it. I don’t want anyone I know seeing me as I cry during the finale “Do You Hear the People Sing?” You also have a heightened awareness of the people around you. I loved the older gentlemen on my right who fist pumped to the opening drums and the younger man on my left who was mouthing the words to “Do You Hear the People Sing?” at the finale. He understood why I was crying! Have you ever attended an event alone?

If you are lacking the confidence to attend an event alone, wearing a polished look will help. I was waiting for the right ocassion to wear this Talbots skirt I scored at Avalon for $10. The sunny day we had Sunday and the fact that it was a matinee, made this the perfect choice. I love the way the light yellow looks with this equally sweet mint green. Do you pair your pastels together?
