The weekends never seem to last long enough around these parts but maybe that's because I always decided to do too much. We rode bikes (again) at Oak Mountain, this time for 17.5 miles. My endurance is definitely getting better with each ride. I'm going to be sad when it gets to hot for us to go every weekend. But also I'll be happy because that will mean it's time for boats/fishing/other water activities and those are my favorites.
This weekend I also co-hosted a Blogger Brunch with Ashten from Always Ashten, and it was DA BOMB. Every time I do one of these hangouts I take more and more blogging advice away from it, and more than that I get to make some new friends! Afterward, I spent the afternoon basking in the sun while reading a good book.
Sunday night was the Oscars and I wasn't planning on watching but then they overtook twitter and my curiousness got the best of me. Long story short, Leo didn't win and and everyone cried. Including me but I cried more so at everyone's acceptance speech because I'm a huge sap.
Also I chose my best/worst dressed.
Best dressed: Lupita Nyong'o, Emma Watson, Julia Roberts.
All of these ladies dresses were fabulous and wonderfully age-appropriate. Several people had something to say about Julia's dress but I think it looks amazing on her and the lace detail works for someone her age. The only thing I would have changed about it was the peplum aspect and just kept it a simple sheath. Emma can do no wrong in my eyes and this dress only increases my love for her (and her stylists).
Worst dressed: Jennifer Garner, Liza Minnelli, Angelina Jolie
I really hated to say Jen was the worst dressed and I almost put Angie on the undecided but I just thought that dress wasn't "her" even though there are parts of it I love (everything from the waist down). There were just too many champagne/nude dresses and some were okay but most I didn't like. Also, Liza needs to stick to her signature black and stay far far away from blue numbers like these.
Undecided: Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett
When I first saw Cate's dress I was like YES but the more I looked at it, I didn't like it. I can't exactly put my finger on it but there's something that makes it not amazing. Anne's dress fit her like a glove and was perfect for showing off her figure but I just couldn't get past the mirrored breast plate thing going on with it.
Favorite overall: Anna Kendrick
Vanity Fair after party
Since this wasn't her red carpet look, I didn't want to list it along with my best dressed (plus I didn't like her red carpet dress all that much either). But this dress is PHENOMENAL. It fits her perfectly - her figure and her personality. It's fun but it's also Oscar appropriate. I'm also really glad she let her hair down for this look.
What did you do this weekend? What were your thoughts on the Oscars?
