id you know a night at the movies is one of the few date options that stands the test of time in every stage of a relationship? Here’s how Hollywood films work their into magic our love lives….
1. If you’re in the beginning stages of dating; go to a movie and then grab a bite afterwards. If the conversation drags, at least you have the film to discuss.
2. Maybe you’ve been dating or married for years and just want a quick dinner & a movie night. It’s ideal for a no-fuss Friday night casual date.
3. Are you going through a rough patch with your significant other fighting like cats and dogs? If the two of you can compromise on a movie to see; you’ll have two hours of silence and maybe a few minutes of hand-holding. (Comedy strongly recommended)
Something about fall and winter makes me want to hit the cinema more often and who doesn’t love a scary movie as Halloween approaches on a chilly Autumn night? So here’s some movie date tips starring fall trends in 3, 2, 1….
Casual Sweatshirts Don’t Have to Be Frumpy~ Infuse every casual outfit with your favorite seasonal trends which this fall means booties, leather leggings and camo
Military Bling ~ Camo and feminine military jackets are everywhere. I chose this jacket partially because of the rhinestones, but you can always dress up you own with studded details or an over-the-top cocktail ring.
Camouflage into Fall ~ When I spotted this jacket in Shanghai at Zara, I couldn’t wait to get back to SF to wear it. Will you be wearing camo this fall?
Monster Mash ~
Maybe you can relate, but a lot of nights I don’t get much sleep. The past few times I’ve gone to the movies, the dark theater and comfy chairs were so snoozeworthy I actually took a little nap. From now on, I’ll have a Red Bull
or one of my new faves, an Arnold Palmer
on steroids which I’m holding here. It’s Monster’s Rehab Tea+Lemonade+Energy
Night of the Living Dead & Criminals~ This may look like a scene out of a horror movie or ‘Breaking Bad,’ but this empty parking lot complete with the creeper van is in the heart of SOMA in San Francisco where there’s been an increase of criminals and drug addicts lurking in the streets each night!
(SF Sidenote) ~ There have been over 2,000 reported cars broken into in just the past month in SOMA according to the SFPD. Scary! If you live in SF, join EveryBlock to know what’s going on in your neighborhood.
Sometimes You Just Need a Good Scream ~ ‘The House at the End of the Street’ starring Jennifer Lawrence is looking like a fun cheesy thriller movie to see this weekend. And if you’re ever in SF, my favorite spot ever for a casual dinner & top-notch margarita is Tommy’s Mexican Restaurant on 23rd & Geary.
Creme de la Creme Chilled ~ I hate being cold in movie theaters so this DIY lightweight sweatshirt inspired by Atlantic-Pacific is definitely a top I’d wear. See how I made it Here
