All Aboard

trainstop

Over the weekend, Matty and I ventured to Ann Arbor's historic State Theater to see A Midnight in Paris. Written and directed by Woody Allen, the film details the day-today interactions of a family traveling to Paris for business. Gil (Owen Wilson) and his bride-to-be (Rachel McAdams) navigate the emotional pitfalls of their relationship with Allen's classic tongue and cheek humor.  I must admit, the film was my favorite since Annie Hall. Wilson as the hopeless dreamer was reminiscent of Allen in the 1977 romantic comedy. Like Annie Hall, I hope A Midnight in Paris will become both culturally and aesthetically significant in American film.

I recently thrifted this 1970s skirt at a local store in Ann Arbor. The cactus and sun detailing reminds me of Southwest road trips during the summer months. Since the weather has been particularly warm, I paired it with yellow and red accessories. And the oversized straw bag is a newly purchased find from the Treasure Mart. It is my new favorite go-to bag for summer outings and weekend travels.

I wish there were rail road tracks near me so I could pose on them. I am in love with that bag and your cute shoes. Your hair always is amazing and woody allen <3 I am a fan. Ever since I saw radio days in my senior year of high school. So I must see this somehow! x

The Thriftaholic (Leilani) :

1970s novelty skirts are the best, love the cactus detail on yours. I've been envious of all your thrifted finds lately, sadly I've never been to Anne Arbor! Maybe I can come visit while you're there this summer.

Can't wait until you come to Chicago, feel free to email me when you solidify your plans.

Sarah :

The cactus detail is so fun and I really like that bag of yours. I have been scouring the landscape around here for some train tracks, but haven't had any luck.

Jamie Rose :

This is adorable and screams summer! I love your blue skirt paired with the yellow top. Great location for pictures too!

Jenni :

I couldn't agree more with you about "Midnight in Paris." It might be my second favorite Woody Allen movie ever. Your bag is incredible! Your entire outfit is--love the gingham top!

Perdita :

I adore the detailing on the skirt. Patches and embroidery are two major 70s-loves of mine, cute, folksy and yet also a demonstration of skill and design. Love it.

triskelos :
