at the symphony


//skirt: made by me / blouse, belt: JCP / cardigan: h&m / tights: fred meyer / necklace: confirmation gift / oxfords: thrifted//

Hello everyone! Happy December! I hope you're all doing well this week. I'm right in the middle of finals at the moment--I just submitted one final essay yesterday, and now I have four essays to go and an exam before I'm finished. My arts class has been pretty crazy--two essays a week, and now a final essay tacked on to that. I'm pretty sure I've never had to write that much for a class in my life! I'm definitely ready for Christmas break.

Anyway, this outfit is what I wore for attending the symphony a few weeks back. I had to see a concert for my arts class, and since I had never been to the symphony, I was actually excited for the opportunity. My friend and I went to the Seattle Symphony's performance of Verdi's Requiem, and we both absolutely loved it. The music was gorgeous and chilling, and the soloists were amazing. I was also excited for the opportunity to have a night out...even if it was for school. It provided the perfect excuse to dress up a little and go out.

  1. I love this outfit, and your hair! That skirt is SO pretty. Also, I thrifted some oxfords JUST like yours, and posted an outfit wearing them today! Hah! They're so great for the wintery weather we've been getting, aren't they?
    I hope you survive finals!

  5. Very lovely outfit!

    I hope your finales go well. I have my first coming up and they've got me all nervous. Yours sound worse though. That many essays?! You will need a break once it is over.

    1. Thanks, Jack! I hope your finals go well too! Ahhh...I think that teachers use the essays to make up for the time that I would have spent in class if I wasn't an online student. :P But still, adding up the number of short essays just for my one class comes to 16! But at least they were all short, haha.
