Family Movie Night & Lazy Style


Cardigan: Kohls (super old), Tee: Shade, Jeans: DownEast Basics, Bracelets: c/o Oasap
Yesterday, after Emery got off work, we took the kids to see the movie Brave at the cheap theater.  My daughter had been wanting to see it pretty bad, but I just can't justify paying full price for a kid's movie that they might not even sit through.  Three bucks a person is much easier for this cheapskate to accept.  So anyway, the kids sat through the whole thing and loved it!  I have to admit...I absolutely loved it too!  I really liked how it showed a princess being strong and independent.  I'm not exactly a feminist, but I strongly believe that women should be able to follow their dreams and not be confined to a particular role that society deems appropriate (stepping down off my soapbox now).  It was such a cute movie and I'm pretty sure we're going to need to buy it when it comes out.  Have you seen any good movies lately?

I was feeling really casual yesterday, as you can tell by my clothes.  When I'm lazy, this is pretty much my go-to outfit.  A pair of jeans, a basic tee and something thrown on top...in this case, a crochet cardigan thing.  I don't even know what it's purpose would be.  It certainly doesn't keep you warm.  It's see-through, so it doesn't cover up much skin.  I guess it's just there for looks...who knows?  But it's been in my closet for years and every once in a while it gets worn.

How do you guys feel about the new blog layout?  I wanted to clean it up a bit, so I decided to go with just one sidebar.  I also wanted the layout to reflect me a little better.  My absolute favorite color is purple, so I thought different shades of purple would be fun.  I'm really liking it, but I am one of the most indecisive/picky people that I know, so we'll see how long it lasts!

Linking up to What I Wore Wednesday.

  2. I was just talking to someone about that movie wondering what happened to it! I never saw it but it sounds like its worth a Redbox once it comes out. I like the cleaner blog look.

  3. I am seriously loving the new layout :) It's beautiful and obviously, I love purple! :) And we don't spend money to go to movies either.. they really are so expensive! If we go we bring our own stuff, and we go to a local theater that has a pretty good deal if we go to the first showing of the day. :)
    Happy Wednesday!

  6. I think the blog looks good. I'm thinking of updating my blog look to but I cant decide. I love your look by the way. I've done the same thing many times.

    I saw someone comment about sneaking in snacks. Yeah. I do it too. Mostly cause there is a dollar tree right next to the theater that just begs you to buy a bunch of the candy for a dollar.

    1. Thanks Cody! Yeah, sometimes I feel bad when I bring in candy...but the candy they sell at the theater for $3 costs under a dollar at Walmart!

  8. Adorable outfit! Love the comfy cozy fall look. Layout is still looking great. And we are HUGE fans of the "cheap" theater in our house. We love it so much that sometimes my husband lets me get a soda and sweedish fish too ;)
    (One time we snuck in Panda Express too cause we hadn't eaten dinner. it was fun)

  14. I LOVED brave! I went straight home after seeing it and bought the three main songs (the ones with lyrics. If you like folksy music- BUY THEM). Love them!
    You look so cute and I'm so excited for our photoshoot! Do you have any styles in mind you'd want for your pictures?

  15. Your new layout looks great. It really does have a cleaner, more put together vibe now. I have some of those vesty thingies... I think they're just another cute accessory. No reason to have a purpose... haha
