What I wore to the ballet at the Royal Opera House, London

Well hello to you my reader chums! It's not every day you live your childhood dreams and finally attend a ballet at the Royal Opera House. My boyfriend surprised me with tickets for Swan Lake (my favourtie ballet) for my birthday this year and I honestly couldn't contain my excitement. I've been dreaming of this day since I was 10 years old and used to collect ballet magazines which always featured the Royal Opera House and all the ballet content you could think of.

The day finally came on Tuesday just gone and I honestly couldn't wait! As it was such a once in a lifetime experience, my boyfriend and I wanted to dress up really formal and fancy, and it was so much fun. He went for the full black suit look and a bow tie, and I decided to rock my inner ballerina.

I wanted to purchase a dress that looked like a tutu but wasn't exactly a tutu so had a browse on Asos and came across this gorgeous lilac gown with lace detailing on the top and tutu-like fabric falling all the way down to the floor.

As soon as I put it on, I felt like a princess ballerina and didn't want to take it off. Stepping into the Royal Opera House really heightened my excitement and I felt like royalty parading around in my dress. The outfit just brought everything together that I couldn't help share it with you guys. 

I originally wanted to pair the dress with a pair of nude heels, however, when I got to London I realised the strap had fallen off on them and had to opt for my black heels instead. I loved how the black heels paired with the dress and also matched my boyfriend's suit.

Dress: Asos
Shoes: New Look (they are a few years old so I can't link them)
Bag: New Look 

The show was honestly once in a lifetime! As I stepped into the main theatre, I couldn't believe my eyes at how beautiful it all was and I felt as if I was in a movie. Then when the ballet began, the whole time I was in awe of the ballet dancers' talent and the stunning production which took place. Swan Lake is a wonderful ballet and the Boshi Ballet company brought all my dreams to life, and I wish I could relive my night at the Royal Opera House over and over again.
