Weekend/Oscars recap

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?


Linking up with Rachael and Meg!

Seriously... how does Leo keep getting snubbed? I don't understand it!!!!
Anna Kendrick's dress is PERFECTION! I didn't watch, but, I always love looking at the dresses after. :)

I haven't watched the Oscars probably since I was 14, before this year I was a teacher so I couldn't stay up late on Sunday nights, haha, but it was fun to live tweet it ...sorry that Leo lost, but the other people nominated really just had better parts. I thought the guy from 12 years a slave should have won, but I'm happy for Matty too. Esp. when you think about some of the movies he's done! haha. Are they gonna go back and put "Academy Award Winner Matthew Mcconaughey" on all the covers of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days? hahah

my favorite was KAte hudson but I didn't see Anna's after party dress- so pretty!

brooke lyn said...

Anna Kendrick and i need to be besties!

Breenah A said...

Why didn't Anna wear that on the red carpet? It's much better!
I like Cate's, but I'm so-so on Anne's. It kinda looks like chainmaille.

Casey Aslan said...

Ooh I envy your bike riding skills!

Jessica Emerson said...

Seriously, Emma Watson is Boss Awesome. But Anna Kendrick...WOWZA! I love that girl. Oy...just had a thought, can you imagine a movie with the two of them together? I think I drooled a little. Anyway sounds like you had an awesome week! Loved your best/worst dressed lists!

Anna said...

I didn't watch The Oscars yet, but Anna's dress is amazing. But Liza, seriously?

Great to "meet" you in the chat! :)

Lisa @ Two Martinis said...

I think Cate's dress bothered me because it had a high neckline but it was also kind of sheer and I just didn't understand the whole thing. Like I felt like I should like it, but I somehow just didn't! But I loved the Oscars. I mean, Ellen is celebrity perfection.

The Rachael Way said...

All of these are on point!! Thanks for linking up lady!

Amy @ No Longer A Dreamer said...

Anna Kendrick's dress IS phenomenal!!! And I loved Jenna Dewan Tatum's as well!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

Lupita's dress was spot on and a great choice! I agree with your picks for the three worst dresses... Angelina could have done a lot better!

Terra Heck said...

I rarely watch awards shows and skipped out on the Oscars. With that said, I enjoy seeing the fashions. I think my favorite you listed is Julia Roberts' dress.

Ashten @ alwaysashten said...

I'm still bitter about LEO but Anna Kendrick looked drop dead.

So did Julia Roberts.
