Last week, the Book of Mormon Broadway play was in town. Have you seen it? It was written by the creators of South Park, so it's raunchy, inappropriate at times, and wildly hilarious. I'm not a South Park fan but I really enjoy the play (the amazing actors and actresses definitely help!). I saw it for the first time a few years ago when it came through Salt Lake City. Honestly, SLC is the best place to see Book of Mormon! It's the Mormon capital of the world, so everyone there knows exactly what the references are and it makes it so much more fun. If they wrote a play about Catholicism (I grew up Catholic), I would totally see it.
My outfit, which I wore to work during the day and to the play in the evening, was inspired by the Mormon missionary outfits (which, if you're unfamiliar, are made up of a white collared button-down shirt and black trousers). I pulled out two oldies for this look: my sleeveless collared shirt by Uniqlo and my well-loved J.Crew Pixie pants. For some reason, I hadn't worn the shirt in well over a year. I think the fact that it's semi-sheer and also prone to wrinkles (damn you, rayon) keeps me from pulling it out that often. My Pixie pants also haven't seen as much wear as they used to, mostly because the snug fit makes them feel slightly inappropriate for work. I have only been wearing them with long tops and sweaters, of which I own few!
The voluminous cashmere sweater pulled everything together, and the patent chelsea boots finished the look with some much-needed contrast in texture. I love how it all came together and could definitely see myself repeating it! I photographed this with my Madewell tote (which I bring to work with me every day) because the cognac looked luxe with the black and white—per usual!
What are your thoughts on Broadway plays? Into them? I have to admit that I've only seen a few (War Horse, The Lion King, and Book of Mormon are the only ones that come to mind right now), but I'm hoping to see more as they visit Boise! I'm really hoping that Hamilton will stop by someday...! It's also a good excuse to get back to NYC, though, of course. ;)
