Blue Valentine

tank: Gap, remix'd
shirt: Old Navy
cardi: Gap
jeans: Gap, remix'd
booties: Old Navy, remix'd
earrings: James Avery, remix'd

For today's rainy day, we watched an appropriate movie: Blue Valentine. I have mixed feeling about this flick. I heard great things about it, and I thought the acting was pretty good, but the content was very depressing. The movie was also very character-driven, rather than plot-driven. Needless to say, the hubs gave it a thumbs down.

This gingham shirt was one of my purchases from Monday. I have been obsessed with acquiring one of my own, especially seeing kendi and tania remix theirs endlessly, but I didn't want to drop the $$ for one from J. Crew. For about $7 on sale at Old Navy, I bought 2! I bought this cardi on supersale this last March, but it got too warm for me to wear it. I like having new clothes to wear without spending any more money :)

And although I was complaining about how I haven't been inspired by the Gap lately (although today's outfit wouldn't demonstrate that), I can honestly say I love the fit of their different types of jeans. I'm sure these were purchased on supersale too.

We saw it yesterday and friends asked if we liked it...I couldn't respond. I liked it, but it's like you shouldn't because of the storyline.

I feel like old navy does their best to copy everything from j.crew.
no complaints from me however.

Love the gingham with that cardigan! I've been wanting to watch Blue Valentine, but I really have to be in the right mood for something that is so difficult to watch.
