What I Wore: Heatpocalypse






Thanks for all the well wishes on my move!! I can't believe I'm leaving Michigan in less than a week. And am I packed? Nope. Haha!

Anyway these past weeks have been so action packed. Waking up to go to work then after hanging out with some amazing friends until the wee hours in the morning. The day I wore this Mike and I got half off dinner at the Woodward Brewery then walked to DQ for mini blizzards then back to the Loving Touch for movie night. I left after the first movie which was "Rubber" which is an amazing movie (it's on Netflix streaming right now). Later that night I enjoyed the cool air from laying ontop of my car watching heat lightening dance in the sky.

Other notable days was hanging with Leyland, Stephanie, and Mike Friday night, then having dinner with Brent and seeing Terrence Malick's new movie "Tree of Life". Which I LOVE Malick's movies. He is a complete genius in the world of film and moving paintings. He knows how to slow down time in order to bring the viewer into every frame. I've had a review of "New World" written on here for some time, which I'm thinking now I need to post it. Tree of Life brought me to tears in the end from the beauty of it all. I know it isn't for everyone (people left the theater) but it really is incredible if you are a visual person... Ok, tangent done. After the movie we met up with friends later at the Emory where we closed the bar and went on to Como's for some pizza... Sunday I packed, hung out with Mike, Leyland, got ice cream with Kristina and again went to the WAB and then listened to bands at the Loving Touch, before I ended the night with a late night bike ride with Brent...

Geez. My days... I know I did a lot before the weekend as well! My days are long and I'm so content. The joy I've been having makes me wish-washy on leaving. But I know that the days are numbered even if I stayed here. The weather gets cold, and people are leaving. So I must live everyday. Even when it's 100 degrees outside. yuck.

Huggles,
Lauren

this is an awesome outfit, I love that you tied up your blouse. for a tangent, I have a passion for DQ but there arent any near me and the ones that are somewhat nearby are seasonal so the fact that you got to eat a mini blizzards makes me crazy jealous.

Sounds like you're not letting the heat get you down. And yours is the first unqualified positive review I've come across about "Tree of Life". I'll see it now. Now, get packing!

Of course the day you go to see Tree of Life is the day I'm out of town! Haha, I'm glad you liked it though.
