There were originally far more shots to this post, but I decided to cut back only to this particular one so the rest of the post won't be so photo-spam-esque.

The family and I went to see a movie today, after I had spent the night with some wonderful friends over at Shay's.

We decided on "A Dolphin Tale" - which not only proves that punny titles occasionally work (and that's only very occasionally) but also that the real family movie has not died.

The Theatrical Poster:

And an incredibly apt review from

"From what I've seen, the trailer on TV and previews have everyone expecting a sappy and cloying family drama; all the elements for it are there - war tragedy, absent parents, incredibly cute animals, confused adults, children - but somehow it manages to transcend the trappings of the family drama genre. There is absolutely nothing more to the story than what's on the trailer but nevertheless, the way it gets to the inevitable points in the story are done with great skill and nuance. The performances coaxed out of all the actors are great, even the dolphin Winter and the pelican.

"Dolphin Tale" aims to tell a very simple story and never over-complicates it. The movie aims to offer an atmosphere and glimpses of lives rather than something story driven. Though the movie boasts of big names, they are never above or beyond the story and all are pieces of the story rather than big actors."

The real breakout star for me (aside from Winter) was Cozi Zuehlsdorff.
Absolutely adorable and perfectly cast in her first principle role. Not to mention the fantastic outfits she was styled in:

How can you not love that little peasant top and striped shorts? 

And she hits the premiere in this little number. Love. 

And with a little searching we discover she has a love for vintage dresses?
If I ever have a child - she will have a lot to live up to.



You need to immediately drag yourself to a theatre and enjoy this film. And cry a little bit. It's not going to blow you away with superb script and cinematography and win any kind of big name awards - but sometimes that really doesn't matter.

It's a wonderful, heartwarming film, and we all deserve a little heartwarming sometimes.

Anywho - I've made some new purchases and the fall has rolled around, so expect some new outfit shots within the coming days.

Until later~
