One of my favorite simple pleasures in life is ducking into a movie theater and spending a couple of hours watching a film. I love both old and new movies and was excited to attend a press preview for the upcoming movie About Time–– a film from Richard Curtis, the creator of Love Actually, Notting Hill, and Four Weddings and a Funeral. About Time tells the story of a young man whose gift allows him to go back and relive any moment of his life. But instead of making every moment perfect, he learns that life and love are most extraordinary when you embrace all of their imperfections.
But what movie outing would be complete without an outfit shoot? Well, this shoot didn’t really go to plan…it had its own plot twist!
For movie dates, I like an outfit that has a bit of sexy playfulness to it but casual enough to be comfortable watching a movie in. I wore this gorgeous Tart Collections cheetah print peplum top because it was just that–playful in animal print but the most comfortable and soft fabric! The cheetah looked fab against the tortoise print on my heels and Karen Walker sunglasses. I originally paired the top with this pair of denim but things didn’t go as planned… I got a coffee before the movie and it was just my luck that I got a leaky cup, which spilled all over my jeans. Wonderful.
Luckily enough, I had an extra pair of pants in my car and was able to do a quick outfit change after the movie. My photoshoot was saved and we ended up finding this cool vintage theater in the process. Funny how even though my outfit was ready to shoot, coffee cup fate intervened similar to the movie plot…what a coincidence! (I was just happy to take off those coffee soaked jeans!)
A big thank you to Universal Pictures for inviting me to the press preview of About Time! The movie was fantastic and I recommend it to everyone when it comes out in theaters on November 8th. Check out the trailer below and some still shots from the movie. Who wants to go with me to see it again?! This time… I’m passing on the coffee!
