I absolutely love going to the movies.  Chick flicks, dramas, adventures, thrillers, 3-Ds and children's movies, I like it all! If I had my way (and the extra funds), I would see a new movie every week but as it is I try to make it to the cinema a few times a month and enjoy movies from the comfort of my couch for the remainder.  There's just something about the cinematic experience- the buttered popcorn, the refreshing drink, the comfy chairs and the group atmosphere- that I find so relaxing.  One of my favourite outings was attending the International Women's Film Festival in St. John's, Newfoundland, it opened my eyes to the art of film making. 

My best friend jokes that I'm always overdressed for the movies as most movie-goers sport jeans, hoodies and comfy shoes...

I spent my holiday weekend catching up some r&r and of course watching a few movies!

What about you- do you like going to the movie theatre, watching movies at home or both?


  1. Both outfits are fab. I love the dress though. LOVE.

    Big fan o movies too. When we go to an evening movie we always scream, "Yay!! Popcorn for dinner!"


  2. I like going to the movies, but I'm totally a bring your own snacks kinda girl. I also am a huge fan of matinees, especially if it isn't opening night of the biggest movie playing - because my theater has two big screens and 10 tiny screens. If it isn't opening weekend, you are stuck with a tiny screen, and I can not stand the idea of paying $15 to see a movie in the damn tiny theater!

    Okay, so fun rant there...

    I really love your ruffled top - the pink layer is so cute!

    Chic on the Cheap

  3. Such adorable outfits, indeed! I love matinees. I usually want a bottle of water if anything at the theater. The snacks are just horrible there. I know of one fancy theater that has healthy things..but you gotta pay big time.

  4. I love the idea of dressing up for the movies! Sadly, every single movie I've been to in the last year has been totally ruined by jackholes in the theater. Ugh. On the plus side, I'm in love with your polka dot dot - so cute.

  5. Oh I agree with your friend dear... you are definitely looking too good for the movies. You put my Lululemon and hoodies to shame!

    Love the bright yellow shoes!

    Bonjour, come say hello!

    Hahaha, I might overdress to go to places too ;D But who really cares?? As long as you feel pretty :) I take every chance I get ;D

    Looove the first outfit! <3


  8. I love polka dots love the shirt :)
    and I love movies but cant justify how expensive they are! plus these days going to see a movie with out popcorn is torture!

    12 more days! eek

  9. I am alllwaayyys the overdressed one when we go to the movies. "It's dark inside. Nobody is going to see you." THAT'S CRAP.
    Mr. A and I usually use Netflix or choose from one of the 23942042 movies that we own when we want to watch something. But I love going to the theater!

  10. i love your style! that polka dot shirt is fab and i love it with the denim shorts and yellow heels!

    movies are fun. i really enjoy going to the theater too but it's such a rare occasion for my hubby and i to go since we have kids. most of the time we watch our netflix in bed and i usually fall asleep in the middle. it's not the same as the theater!

  11. I'm so partial to polka dots and pearls! The yellow shoes lend a nice summery vibe. I prefer renting to going to the movies because I like to streeeetch out (and fall asleep right after). - Kat

  12. Both looks are Gorgeous but I must say that the first is my Fave. I am So LOVING those shoes and especially Loving them with that polka dotted top! Perfection!

  13. Both looks are amazing. I am officially obsessed with your beautiful polka-dot top.

    Although chick flicks are definitely my favorite, I like all movies too and love going to the cinema to watch them. However, I usually only make it out to see a movie once every couple months.

  14. Whoa it looks like a dress, wow! I love it!!! Damn, they should roll out the red carpet for you at the movie theatre LOL

  15. love, love the floaty little top
    yes, i love movies, but not the all out just blow up things movies.
    i let the sons and husband have those
    i like movies anywhere... even watch them on my iphone occasionally

  16. hello hotness in the jean cutoff outfit! hello glamour in 2nd outfit. :) i'd rather go to see a live band than go to the movies. i like watching movies at home. i can talk as much as i want. i can ask questions, so my guy can explain parts i don't understand. i can rewind, pause, stop, & try to study the songs at the end credits. i know totally boring, right?


One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
