Stylish Films: Her


Spike Jonze's "Her" is definitely one of the best films I've seen in quite a while. I left the theater with so many thoughts and questions, and I still can't even begin to explain why it was such a fantastic film. I am still so speechless. Taking place in the near future, the settings seen in this film does portray the future well, but I was a little intrigued by the main character Theodore's style and how that can be a correct representation of the future of fashion. While yes, a fictional film, it still interests me as to why futuristic fashion in Spike Jonze's eyes consists of simplistic oxford shirts and extremely high-waisted trousers.  
While confused on the idea of this futuristic fashion, I still completely loved it. Maybe the high-waisted pants are a little strange, but for some reason they really worked for Joaquin Phoenix's character Theodore. Not really sure why. But besides the awesome awkward trousers, his choice of vibrant coral colored oxfords shirts throughout the film really stood out and caught my eye in a good way. The overall simplistic styles of the film was a good addition to the organized and clean lifestyle that it seems like took place in Theodore's life. 
Everything about this film was so creative and unique, and the story and message is breathtaking. It may seem a little strange to some, but it is a film to really keep an open mind about when seeing, because the message is just amazing. If you haven't seen it already, please do!

Route 66

Wearing: Forever 21 tank (old), Thrifted kimono, shorts, + belt, Zara boots, Target scarf, Elise M Collection bracelet (buy here!)

The warmer the weather gets, the more I want to dress in my best boho attire. And it doesn't help at all that festival season is here, and all of my favorite bloggers are transforming into bohemian goddesses! I've been listening to my favorite summer tunes which consist of tons of classic rock, like the Rolling Stones! Two years ago all I really wore outside of this blog were jeans and old band tees, but man has my style really changed. Anymore, I can't leave the house without dressing up and wearing my favorite heels, even if it is to go to a grocery store. I dressed so lazily at school that I made the decision that I'd really make an effort to dress how I really want to dress for my senior year, and I am proud that it has stuck all year, and grown on me to look presentable everywhere I go. Not only did I decide to do this because I looked better, but because dressing up honestly makes me feel good about myself, and when I feel confident my days are so much better. Now my poor little band shirts barely see the light outside of the drawer they're shoved into, but I still love them so much....especially all 11 of my Aerosmith shirts. Lol. But anyways, I finally decided to incorporate one into my outfit today, and I felt cute and not lazy in it! This summer I will without a doubt be reppin' my favorite bands on my shirts again with cute kimonos and high-waisted shorts for those hot summer days!

April Wishlist!

april



River Island top, $20 / White skirt, $30 / Topshop black sandals / Topshop strappy sandals / Valentino leather bag / Nixon Watches watch / Chanel belt / Rag Bone fedora hat / Moschino tech accessory, $70 / Miu Miu sunglasses

This month, I'm giving in to the trends of this season, like more modern-styled clothing and those lovely palm tree printed clothes! I'm really feeling the tan-skin and tropical vibes for this summer, which is unusual for me. But considering this will probably be my last summer in Florida for a while, I really want to be a true Florida blogger and give into the tropical fashions that follow the sunshine state lifestyle. Besides this, I also really, really, really want one of those Moschino french fry phone cases so badly. I didn't really like the collection, well, I did, but not in a serious way....more like a "lol thats pretty funny and ironic" kind of way. But seriously, I think the phone case is cute and trendy (trendy?) for right now and I am trying to get my hands on one.  To top it all of I'm dying over black leather studded accessories, and cute sandals.
