what’s better than a movie? you know. one of those movies that get you thinking—thinking and talking about it long after the screen fades to black. one of those movies you go back to see. not once. not twice. but three times. or more.
remember back when video rental stores were still a thing? seems like a lifetime ago. but if you’re as old as me, you remember scouting the new release, two day rentals. looking for that movie you missed in the theaters. hoping there’s one copy left.
when the kiddos were young, friday nights were sacred: pizza and movie night. after school got out, mr. style and i loaded up the minivan with precious cargo and headed to our local video store. whether it was a new release or five movies for five bucks, friday always meant movies. and movies were synonymous with friday.
but then monday came. movies had to be returned. back to school, and the week started up all over again. monday blues—we all know the saying.
but i’m taking the blues straight on. whether you’re headed to work, beginning of the year parent-teacher conference, or a monday afternoon matinee, i’ve got the outfit for you. today, i’ve got a beautiful blue leopard print shirt from Banana Republic paired with white jeans from Everlane.
tame that cat with a sharp and sleek black blazer from J. Crew, which will carry you through everything from a business lunch to an afterwork happy hour. and if you’re on your feet all day like i am, throw on a pair of ballet flats. comfortable without appearing too casual.
all right, gang. as always, i want to hear from you. now that it’s fall Oscar season is quickly approaching. movie recommendations: give them to me. what are you looking forward to? what have you seen recently that’s worth watching? i’m always on the lookout for something good.
