Mellow Yellow, an outfit post

1.3.12


It's been pretty chilly here this week and ironically I got my haircut the coldest week it has been in a long time. Today the weather really didn't know what it wanted to do rain, snow and my head was freezing the entire time!



I've been cozying up: wearing sweaters, scarves, making soup and sipping on tea. We've been total homebodies, but tonight Will and I will be going to see the ballet. On Valentine's Day my sweetie surprised me with tickets to see Giselle, my all time favorite ballet. I am totally stoked! They will be accompanied by a live orchestra, which is a rare treat because of the high cost of having a live orchestra play every performance. Giselle is such an amazing ballet to watch because the choreography is exciting, showy and because this is based on the original Giselle (French) it will have a bit of softness to it.


It is one of the greatest ballets of all time because the theatricalness of the performance, as well as the story and emotions that are portrayed. It really is a thrill to watch, like seeing a play or opera with exquisit dancing. It is a story of betrayal, loss and love experienced by the characters, who are all real people, which is maybe why it touches me so and why it is considered one of the greatest ballets of all time. If you ever have a chance to go to the ballet I really encourage you to see Giselle.
