it’s the first friday in february. looks like we’re in the home stretch of winter. at least in athens. spring arrives early in the south. in six weeks or so we’ll see buds on trees and longer days. it’s a sight to behold, and i’m ready for nature’s spectacular show. at least our temps finally climbed up to the sixties today. so oscar and i took advantage of the milder temperatures and headed downtown. there’s a cute new coffee shop we wanted to check out. afterward, we took a spin around town.
for you movie enthusiasts i have a few good recommendations. mr. style and i love to go to the movies. while we don’t always like the movies we picked, it’s always a good outing. typically, we throw in dinner afterward, so it’s a fun evening out.
first up Three Billboards Outside Ebbings Missouri – this one is up for several academy awards. Frances McDormand was superb in this role as were the supporting cast. the second movie Lady Bird was briefly mentioned in another post. but what a sweet story with an excellent cast. loved the mother-daughter relationship. from the opening scene, you are hooked on this movie. the third movie is Hostiles. this movie is gripping, thoughtful, and will take your emotions through the gamut. but i loved the ending! a good solid storyline was the common theme of all three movies. each of these films actually had one! this gives me hope that hollywood will once again make movies based on a story. isn’t that what they’re supposed to do?
today’s ootd is easy breezy. a trench coat similar here paired with skinny jeans and my gucci dupes from target. plus, a silk tunic i scored on sale at everlane similar here. trench coats are a classic staple that’s perfect for inclement weather. i’m wearing a short version with traditional details: khaki, double-breasted, wind or gun flap, epaulets, collar, belt, and flap pockets. when in doubt reach for a trench coat. it’s functional, classic, and i love the clean lines it offers. here’s a roundup of my favorites.
okay, gang, it’s friday, it’s february and it’s time for oscar and i to wish each of you a lovely weekend. go to a movie! just sayin’.
