Treat Yo' Self












Top: H&M Conscious Collection; Skirt: H&M (similar); Purse: Vintage Dooney and Bourke; Shoes: Target; Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

This weekend I took myself to a movie, in true Tom Haverford and Donna Meagle "Treat Yo' Self" style. It's something that was definitely out of my comfort zone and that I'd never done before. I actually attempted to talk myself out of going prior to the movie... such is the way my brain works. We have a little theatre down the street that plays independent films and I went to see Mud on Sunday night while Ben was attending a going-away party for a friend. The film was excellent, as was the alone time spent watching a movie. I would highly recommend the film (it's about two young boys that assist a fugitive on the Mississippi River) for anyone.

Have any of you ever taken yourself out on a date to a film/dinner/show? I think it was a good exercise in being comfortable alone and actually saw quite a few other people at the theatre that were attending by themselves.

Happy weekend and end of April all! I'll be announcing the winners of the Zara and Gap giveaways tomorrow morning and launching another giveaway, so stay tuned. Linking up with Plane Pretty.

P.S. The photos above were of our sunny, 73 degree Friday night when we snacked on an almond roca shake at our little shake place down the street.

  1. Love your outfit (and his!), the weather looks beautiful.
    I've gone to dinner by myself a few times; I used to travel a lot for work and would muster up the courage to get out of my hotel room. Sometimes now I'll go get lunch by myself, and considering I don't have a good smartphone, I'm usually sitting there people watching! I enjoy it, but not all the time.

  4. This looks like such a wonderful day! It's always nice to treat yourself every once in awhile. When my husband was on tour I would take myself out to nice restaurants. It's kind of liberating going by yourself!

  8. Cute, I like how you guys match :)
    I've never really thought about going to a movie by myself...I don't know if I would be able to do it! Which is weird because I'm sure a lot of people do it.
    Hooray, can't wait for the next giveaway! How do you do those anyways? Are you partnered with those places?

  12. I'm a fidgety person and I hate having to sit still for so long, so I don't remember the last time I took myself to a movie. I did watch a movie while Trevor was gone last month, but I think I paused it like 4 times haha

    I love the Grand! You're lucky you live so close!

  19. I used to go to movies by myself on a pretty regular basis. I lived in Indianapolis and didn't know anyone, so it was a pretty good way to spend my weekends! I felt a little weird at first, but going to a movie with a group is kind of weird, if you think about it. "Let's hang out and sit next to each other in the dark and not talk for 2 hours!"
