Waiting for Godot | Blush Blazer and Scalloped Pants
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
You can call this look my signature work look! Brian and I had a Shakespeare Theater date night again to see Waiting for Godot last week so I needed a great day-to-night outfit. I mentioned how much I am loving scallops this season and you can really tell with this look. Scalloped cami and scalloped pants! Double whammy! I paired it with my nude Edie loafers from J.Crew Factory for all-day comfort as well. Frankly, you can catch me wearing something similar to this look to work on any given weekday. Elevated neutrals are my go-to for work.

I recently got a brand new lens for my collection - The Sigma 30mm f1.4 lens to be exact! We took it out for a test drive for these photos and holy crap is it an amazing lens! I have a Canon EOS Rebel T5 and we had been shooting mostly with the 'nifty fifty' lens (a Canon 50mm ƒ1.8). The new Sigma lens is much easier to work with as we don't have to be so far apart to capture these shots. I was a bit hesitant to bite the bullet on this lens because I heard a lot of people complaining about the autofocus feature being completely inaccurate. Someone said that it may just depend of the camera body though. After shooting with it a few times, we're happy to report we haven't run into any major autofocus issues. I would say about nine out of ten shots are in focus and are sharp as a tack! The one out of ten times it's not, it's not such a big deal - we just refocus and it's fine.
Of course I can't end this post without talking a bit about the play we saw. Admittedly, Samuel Beckett is not my favorite playwright. I remember reading a few of his shorter plays and just not enjoying them. Then again, I was never a big fan of post-modern theater. That said, I actually enjoyed Waiting for Godot more than his other plays. I love the theater so even if it was the worst play in the world, I would eagerly go to see it. The acting was superb and I think it brought out a new dimension in the play I don't remember studying in school. Waiting for Godot is not my favorite play I've seen this season (I think my favorite has been Twelfth Night this year) but it was a lot more enjoyable than I thought it would be. If you're in the DC area, I recommend this play!
