Raise your hand if you’ve ever seen a color prettier than this shirt. Are you raising your hand? Put it down because you’re lying. Loft calls it “crisp seafoam” but I would call it “barely mint.” It sort of looks like it was a white shirt that got washed with a bright mint green shirt so it got just a tiny bit discolored. In case you’re wondering, NO, that is not what happened. I wash everything in cold water because I don’t trust myself to do any sort of household chores correctly.

I wore this on Tuesday night for a date at Cheesecake Factory. We really like going on dates outside the normal Friday and Saturday night. It’s good excuse to look a little special while still staying pretty comfy. The date was excellent. By the end of the night I was pregnant…with a food baby.

Knotted Chambray

Did you know that a chambray shirt tied at the waist is a sure sign of spring? You’d think the calendar would be enough, but around these parts the date means very little. So you can imagine my excitement when I put on this shirt and it just tied itself, right there in the front.

Have a splendidly springy week!

An Outfit & a Movie Review!

leopard2leopard3
leopard4 leopard5 leopard6 leopard7I’m going to be one of the few people (perhaps the only person) to tell you that I saw Lincoln, and…

Meh.

No offense to Honest Abe. He was a great guy. I just expected a lot more from this movie, especially with all the Oscar buzz. I thought it was going to be epic, but the only thing epic about it was the length. I thought it was the story of Lincoln’s life, but it’s really the story of how the 13th Amendment was passed. Don’t get me wrong – I’m in favor of the 13th Amendment. Slavery? Not the best idea. But about 90% of the movie was the process of passing this amendment in incredibly boring detail. School House Rock could have done it faster and in a more entertaining way.

I also would have expected Lincoln’s death to be the big, emotional climax of the movie. But they didn’t even show him getting shot! Someone announced his death, and then you get a glimpse of his dead body with people looking only moderately morose standing around him. It was weird.

To be fair, I’ll tell you what I did like about the movie. Visually, it was very interesting. If there were an Academy Award for Best Use of Silhouettes and Top Hats, Lincoln would win, hands down. And it does get better as it goes on. I could barely pay attention the first half (normally I never have that problem – I love movies!), but the second half was more plot-driven. And there were quite a few funny lines, which was an unexpected bonus.

If anyone else was unimpressed by Lincoln, please tell me so I know I’m not the only one!

Oh, and this is what I wore to see the movie.
