What to wear for a trip to the theatre in London.


I love having a summer birthday it gives me the opportunity to wear some of my favourite pieces. If you are a regular follower of this blog you may well recognise this coat. I wore it last August as mother of the groom at my son’s wedding. I always like to buy special occasion outfits that I can wear again. I will be wearing the trousers shortly with a simple white shirt.


I had a fantastic day on Saturday a special birthday (no botox I promise).

If you are visiting London I would highly recommend a visit to this wonderful rabbit warren of restaurants, all with a different design theme.

The afternoon tea would be a wonderful way to take a break from a spot of shopping in Bond street or Regent street.

The pink coat I am wearing is by PauleKa. I love “duster coats” and find them extremely useful I have found some similar styles below. I have teamed it with a pair of slinky black slim trousers and a simple black camisole top.

    You look beautiful and comfortable. Can I bother you to ask who makes your purse? It looks perfect with your outfit! Hope your birthday was great.

      Hi Rita
      I bought the bag at the beginning of the summer from The Outnet. I featured it in a post in April. It is still available Here

    You mention that your coat is pink but it certainly looks white ~ love it though!

      Hi Rebecca. It is a very pale ice pink with cream lace bands.

    A fantastic post I really love this look. Who are your top and trousers by? As a pear shape I am always lookin for nice trousers. Thanks. Margo

      Hi Margo
      I am also a pear shape. This trousers are a few years old but I find the best trousers for my shape are either Jaeger or WinserLondon. Sometimes I find that just a bit of elastic at the back helps as I have a small waist to hip ratio. The black top is actually just a silk camisole from my underwear draw. The silk is quite thick.

    how chic you look in that outfit! on my occasional visits to new york for the theater, i am sad to see that few people dress up for the event anymore. where’s the fun in wearing just your jeans and tshirt for an evening out?

    Happy Birthday Josephine! You look absolutely gorgeous in your duster coat with black background. Looks like you celebrated in style!

    Thank you for the trouser advice. Those are my two favourite makes too. I forgot to say Happy Birthday. Although you are a different colouring to me I find your style advice really helpful
    Best wishes Margo

    Wow! You looked beautiful at the wedding (very chic) and I love the way you have been able to use the duster coat again with that fabulous necklace for your trip to the theatre. Very inspirational styling again
