Operas, Estates, and Outfits

Dress: Kohl’s, Shoes (that you can’t see): Clarks, Earrings: Ten Thousand Villages

This past weekend, I had the luxurious pleasure of traveling to the Caramoor estate to attend lectures, recitals, and a wonderful opera as a part of Caramoor’s bel canto opera festival. What better way to spend a Saturday than wandering gorgeous estate gardens, picnicking outdoors, and listening to breathtaking music? Needless to say, I had a fantastic time.

I also knew that I had to dress right for the occasion. I needed something that would be comfortable during the two-hour car ride, durable for walking around the estate garden paths, and formal enough for an evening opera performance. This dress was my solution: the maxi length gave it a touch of formality, while the breezy knitted fabric made it comfortable for strolling around on a summer’s day.

You can’t see the shoes from the picture, but I wore my favorite pink ruffled Clarks sandals. These are literally the most comfortable shoes I own, and surprisingly durable. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for cute but comfortable vacation shoes!
