what’s on my summer checklist? white and more white. yesterday i added pink. today, it’s a dose of black for date night with mr. style. nothing too fancy tonight as we are keeping it low keel. many nights, we will head to a movie then catch a bit to eat afterward (or vice versa) but whenever i glance at the movie roster lately, i think ‘ho-hum.’ maybe i’m wrong but the movie scene is far from what i experienced as a young girl and teenager during the sixities and seventies. movies like to kill a mockingbird, cool hand luke, the godfather, network, jaws. even the eighties did a fairly good job of keeping pace with teen movies the breakfast club, ferris bueller, sixteen candles, or how about raiders of the lost ark? maybe i’m just being nostalgic, but it seems as if hollywood has decided to churn out mediocre films and one too many remakes like the mummy.
so instead of dinner and a movie tonight, it might just be plain old dinner. my white cropped pants are back in action – for some reason i am loving crop flares this year. and a simple striped tuxedo shirt i picked up last summer. the cotton is crisp and cool and i love the longer tunic length as there’s no need for a tuck. embellished block heels add a hint of drama as do black beaded earrings. black belt, black handbag, and this girl is ready to head out the door. but hollywood, could you please make an original flick now and again? that is all.
