Matchy Matchy

sweater, belt, necklace, & shoes | forever 21   jeans | the gap

If we got down to it, I am not a girly girl.  I own cowboy boots, am obsessed with horses and know how to drive a manual four-wheeler.  I'm more comfortable with my hair like this and in jeans than anything else.  Yes, I'm a girl and love to look pretty, but I'm not a stereotypical girly-girl.

But when it comes to coral (a shade of pink), I am obsessed.  When I found this sweater and shoes at Forever 21 yesterday, I about died.  First off because they was coral, and second because they never have shoes in my size (10... ugh. being tall sucks).  And believe me when I say never.  These are also now my only flat shoes in my closet that are not sandals.  Sad, I know.  I've taken to wearing my non-slip, unnattractive, black work shoes at non-work places just to get out of wearing 3" heels, since it's still too cold for sandals.  So, major breakthrough here!  Three cheers for flat shoes, I'll tell you that.

I forgot to mention in my post yesterday - I took myself on a movie date yesterday (first time ever!  Can I get a 'hell yeah!'?) in the middle of the day to see The Host - do you know it?  It was published by Stephanie Meyer in 2008 (the only non-Twilight book she's written), and it was given to me as a Christmas present that year.  To say I devoured it is an understatement.  That woman knows how to write a good book!  Good enough that even then, I knew it was going to be turned into a movie someday.  Lo and behold, four years later, I catch wind of its March 2013 release, and FREAK OUT.  As a lifelong bookworm, I have extremely high standards when it comes to book adaptations, and I've been disappointed by them in the past, so I was skeptical of this movie.

But this.

I was blown away.  Every character, set, and conversation was portrayed exactly the way Stephanie had put in my head.  I'm still in awe.

So if you haven't seen it yet, do.  But the book has to come first.  Just trust me.  It does.

Have you seen it yet?  If so, what did you think?  Did you like the book or movie better?   xx

  1. I'm looking forward to seeing The Host after reading your comments about it. I loved the book (more than Twilight, actually). Great outfit!

  2. I read the book when it first came out and I hated it. I suspect I'll have to give it another try. But I hated the book so much I'm not sure I want to see the movie,


Thank you for taking the time to comment on my post! I appreciate it more than you know. xx
