Happy Friday, everyone! I never really told you what I am usually doing when I am not at the office, shooting outfits for my blog or getting inspired on Pinterest. Well, if you head to our local movie theatre on Friday or Saturday night, you will probably see me there, holding Starbucks cup, filled with mint or green tea. If it’s not our movie night, I am probably browsing a bookstore somewhere in downtown Montreal, even though I already got quite a collection of healthy cookbooks, creative self-help and classic books. Bookstores were my candy shop ever since I was little, actually. Unlike most of my friends who were playing outside all day, I simply couldn’t put my book down until I read the last page.
Things are a bit different when you’re an adult though: we have less free time and when we have it, we usually spend it with our friends or family. And believe it or not, but I am nothing special when it comes to picking things to do together: a good old movie night is my favourite. What can be more fun than escaping our daily lives, immersing into somebody else’s world for a couple of hours and watching our favourite actors’ play on a big screen, together? For me, there is just one more thing, and it’s choosing an outfit for my next movie night.
Since I usually try to dress according to the weather, I always wear a long-sleeved sweater or even a jacket on top of a simple tee to movies. You are probably wondering why, but if you stepped into one of our theatres on a hot and sunny day, you would totally understand me. The air conditioning there is usually set on “arctic cold”, and chances are that none of your friends will have a spare jacket to save you from freezing. For that same reason, I recommend that you wear your favourite pair of jeans instead of a skirt or a dress. If it’s your date night and you want to look a bit more chic, simply add a pair of heels or sandals, a statement accessory and you’re all set!
