Old Hollywood Inspired | Black + White

So, we watched the movie "Murder Mystery" a few weeks ago, and Gemma Arterton's character was rocking this amazing wide-brim black hat, and she totally inspired today's look. (S/N - Gemma Arterton is so beautiful, and I kinda love her). She had a ding on her head that she was trying to cover with the hat, and Ross asked me if I needed him to wack my head, so I could really recreate the look. haha! He was kidding of course... and I didn't choose to go that far. But, I had such a fun time styling this one, and I'm so obsessed with this gorgeous skirt and cute little top, both from Chicwish. I know this skirt is kind of a statement, but it's such a beautiful one. And, this top will be a staple throughout late Summer and Fall, I'm sure!

Are you guys watching Stranger Things? We finished the season last night, and oh my gosh. I loved it so much. I laughed, I cried. We went on a whole journey, and gah - that show is just so so good. I don't think I've ever mentioned here what a SciFi junkie I am. I love the SciFi genre more than anything, and this show is seriously everything, for me. Not only is the Science Fiction story-line exactly what I love, but the character development, the relationships, the "growing up, kind of right-of-passage" that the kids go through, in real life, and on screen. It's all so beautiful, and I can't say enough good things about that show. If you haven't gotten into it.... what are you waiting for? 
Thank you guys so much for being here today, and I hope you have the BEST Thursday and a great weekend!
