What to Wear: to the movies


what to wear

This week we are showing what we would wear to the movies, which to be honest, my only concern before going to the movies is “do I have a sweater” because holy crap it’s cold in the theaters.


The only fairly recent movies I’ve seen in the theater are The World’s End and This is the End and I didn’t recognize the theme here until typing this out. Hmmm…

I will say I still have every intention of catching Woody Allen’s latest, Blue Jasmine before it leaves the theater. I’m a huge fan and I’m kicking myself for not making it sooner, as my opportunities are waning and getting further and further from my house.


top: Urban Outfitters
skirt: F21
boots: ebay
sweater: thrifted
necklace: vintage


Please tell me I’m not the only one who needs to put my feet up on the chair in front of me during the movie? I know it’s wrong, that’s why I frantically put them down when the usher comes in to scope out the scene. I can’t stand the idea of getting in trouble anywhere and I clearly still have a fear of authority…

What was the last movie you ventured to the theater for?

Also… yesterday was my introduction on Flock Together if you want to check it out!

  3. Love this outfit and I totally need a sweater and my feet up to watch a movie. I’m the worst for being the one girl in the crew that gets in trouble for getting my dirty boots up in the air. ;)

  4. It’s adorable that you think of a movie usher as an authority figure! I always put my feet up, but there are no ushers at the theatre I frequent. And also barely any paying guests, so…yeah! CAT SHIRT! And that necklace is amazing.

    I wore a dress with a skirt part that is similar to yours. Quite a few of my students touched it as they walked by today. One of them told me, “I just really like the way it feels.” LOL.

    Blue Jasmine was excellent. So, so, so many things to think about. Funny and devastating. Just a wonderful film.

    I like to rest my knees up against the chair in front of me.

    This is very cute. What a swishy skirt!

  7. Ellie says:

    I have that same skirt and it’s one of my favorites. Love how you styled it here. And you are so right about movie theaters being freezing haha.

    I also put my feet up on the seat!! Though now when we go to the theater is usually the super nice ones with leather lean back seats so I don’t need to as much anymore. We only go once or twice a year so I don’t mind that those theaters are a little more expensive.
    I love your necklace!!!
    Hope you get to see Blue Jasmine!

    So true! I feel like dressing for the movies and dressing for winter are one in the same thing…haha. This is so darn cute Lisa. I love how you layered this outfit- it’s preppy with a quirky feel to it.

    I don’t even remember last time I went to a movie – seriously could have been the last Harry Potter movie – which was ages ago!

  10. Sarah says:

    I’m with ya on the sweater! Why do they keep it so cold in those theaters, haha?!

  11. Rachel G says:

    I always wear slip off shoes so I can take them off at the movie theater. And yes, I’m either sitting on my feet or putting them up on the back of the empty chair in front of me. Sitting up straight just isn’t that comfy!

  12. Nicole says:

    What a cute outfit – I love that kitty top. Hope you’re having a great day!

    hahaha If I have it my way, I always sit in the seats in front of that metal bar thing. That way I can shamelessly put my feet up. It’s either that or I end up cross-legged by the end.

  14. Becca says:

    Love this outfit! That cat tshirt is the cutest. I agree, movie theatres get WAY too cold. And, yes, I also put my feet up on the chair in front of me, so I get real grumpy if someone sits in front of me. Haha!

    What a neat top! :p And no, no, no! Don’t put your feet on top of the chair in front of you, haha! I never do it and hate to see people who do. Now that I think about it, I don’t even think I’d be physically able to do it, my legs are too short, bahaha!

    And yes, why is it always so freaking cold in the movie theater? Brrr!

    Have a great Sunday, Lisa!

  16. Laura says:

    I love your skirt and booties! Such a cute outfit! This reminds me my husband and I are way past due for a movie date!

  17. Jessi says:

    So cute! I love the pleated skirt! And I totally agree with you – its ALWAYS freezing in the theatre so a sweater is a must any time of year.

  18. Jess says:

    I saw What Masie Knew when I was last at the cinema, and it was really good! I love your skirt and your boots. Your outfit is really lovely :) xx

  19. Corina Nika says:

    lalafauxbois.com is really interesting, but why it is on 13th place in google’s search results. It deserves to be in top 5. Many webmasters think that seo is dead in 2016, but it’s not true. There is sneaky method to reach google’s top 5 that not many people know. Simply search for: pandatsor’s tools
