As of yesterday afternoon, Christmas break has officially begun for me! This means that I have so much time to do all the productive things I've meant to do all semester, such as clean out my closet and apply for internships.
But of course that's not what I'll actually do. Instead I spent a wonderful afternoon watching one of my favorite classic movies of all time.
I've always had a thing for old movies and TV. I didn't watch the Nickelodeon like most kids. My parents kept TVLand on 24/7. Instead of Wild Thornberries, I watched reruns of I Love Lucy. My mom and me used to sit down and watch classic movies together on Saturday mornings. They were some of my favorite memories about my childhood.
This movie gets me every time. It has the perfect balance of romance and comedy. I find myself swooning over Peter Warne (Clark Gable) almost as much as Ellie (Claudette Colbert). Its nice to be reminded that love can be found in the most ridiculous of situations.
The movie of course inspired me and so I came up with a cute Christmas party outfit with a classic style to it.
