The first full weekend of the year was nice and relaxing for us. Unfortunately the hubs had to work Saturday night so I took the opportunity to eat and watch Melancholia with a friend. I guess I had high expectations because it received many rave reviews, but I am not sure I really liked it. Without giving too much away, it's definitely a movie a person would either love or hate. The hubs would probably have been asleep within the first 10 minutes!

Tired of this skirt yet? I am not! I packed away all my shorts, since being January and all, but yesterday the temps were in the high 70s and so humid. Yes, definitely evidence of global warming, my friends. Wearing a skirt and tee were my next best options.

The only thing I had planned this week is getting my hair colored. I think it's been over 2 months since I last went in and I was desperately in need to color the white hairs! Megan recently wrote an excellent post about hair that I highly recommend, especially if you are thinking about changing yours.

I was also not kidding when I said I was going to remix and rewear my clothes. I've decided not to take myself or my clothes too seriously this year and wear what is fun and makes me happy.

I tried to watch Melancholia last weekend and couldn't get into it. So RDog watched it while I sat beside him playing on the IPad. It definitely is a different movie.

I'm jealous of your warm weather!

I don't really care for Lars von Trier, so I will probably skip Melancholia. I like that skirt!

Both are sweet looks. I know this weather has been so weird! We've gotten 60s not 70s, but it's been warm enough to leave off the coat.

I haven't seen Melancholia, nor know what it's about. Ahhh, sometimes I have gaps in my movie knowledge. Been so busy catching up on my shows and hunting down new Star Trek 2 info.

Hooray for hair! And thanks for the shout-out.

I'm not one to complain about having an unseasonably warm day, but since today was right back in the 30°s I'm not certain it's the global warming.

Definitely love the floral skirt!

I've read about Melancholia and was intrigued by the idea of the movie -- haven't seen it yet, though. Is it on Netflix? Going to have to check...

Also, I know exactly where you are in that top picture, haha! ;) Gotta love the little Highland Village area!

I'm kind of on the same boat as you are about not stressing too much about my outfits this year and having fun with it. Since I will be getting bigger over the months, buying clothes hasn't been very fun and honestly it's a little unmotivating.
