Of Hobbits and Dresses

scarf: diy, dress: old navy (old), flats: thrifted

perfectly matched tights and flats

Happy Wednesday, y'all! It seems that I am in a dress/skirt phase at the moment. I have always preferred dresses. I am reasonable certain that I pinned something from Sally that inspired this outfit with the navy, burgundy and leopard. And I was tickled to discover that my new burgundy tights were a perfect match for my burgundy flats. Awesome.

So, the hubby and I saw The Hobbit in IMAX 3D which was incredible. I really loved the movie, and even thought I wanted to see it, I didn't expect to love it. You see I read The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy back in junior high. I read the Hobbit that once and maybe one other time. LOTR on the other hand I have read at least 7 or 8 times. Those books are incredible. They are epic and well written. There is good and evil and romance and a happy ending. The Hobbit on the other hand had no female characters and was basically written as a boys' adventure tale. And while it is a very good one, it didn't appeal to me as much. So, I was excited for The Hobbit, but not sure I would love it as much as the others. Well. I do. It was incredibly well done from the acting to the filming to the effects. If you haven't seen it, I would highly recommend it. Now, I would not recommend it for younger kids as it could be a little scary, but my 7 year old nephew saw it and loved it. So I guess that depends on your kid.

If you've seen it, please leave your thoughts in the comments!

Linking up today with The Pleated Poppy, Transatlantic Blonde and Wardrobe Wednesday!
