Pink Julep at the Movies and My 1st OOTD!

Hubby and I have seen a lot of movies in the last week!

First up was Did You Hear About the Morgans? Don't believe the bad press you've read and heard about this ROM-COM cause it's cute, touching and a lot of fun! Surprisingly SJP and Hugh Grant have a very fun chemistry! It's cute! Go see it or at least rent it!

The Blind Side is everything I heard it was and MORE! This is a phenominal story of selflessness and believing in people! I'm totally rooting for Sandra Bullock to win some awards for her amazing performance! And, FYI... this film made me totally homesick for the South!

Hubby dragged me out to see Avatar tonight and I was reluctant, but it was actually pretty good. Too long, but good. The special effects are good and the story is okay, even if they did probably kill an entire rainforest with all the electricity they used on making a film that screams PLANET IN PERIL! Also, kind of annoyed me how they ripped off the American Indians for the aliens... make up your own story James Cameron! But otherwise, it was great!

Also, I was proud enough of my outfit today to do my first OOTD (excuse the mess in the background please - No, I don't make my bed before work... who has the time?)

I wanted to share this one in particular because it's one of my favorite outfits and probably one of the cheapest! You really don't have to spend a fortune to look like a million bucks! Not sayin I do look like a million bucks, but I really do like this outfit! Just do...
Empire waiste tank dress: Target (about $15)
Ruffle cardi: Express (about $40)
Ribbed tights: Hanes (I think?) from CVS - $3.99
Shoes: Jessica Simpson ballet flats from Nordstrom - (About $50)
Black Ring: H&M ($1.99)
Total cost of outfit including earrings that aren't pictured = About $111!!!
Not too shabby for all those pieces on that slim budget! Some pieces are new and others are old. I'm a big fan of shopping my own closet to make new outfits with both the old and the new! I wore this to work today and felt very put together and cute all day. I'm such a bargain whore and think that I'll continue to share some of my good steals with you when I'm up to the photo shoot at 7am!
Pink Julep!
