So I finally watched The Theory of Everything the other day, and I have to admit, I am deeply underwhelmed. It feels very standard “tortured genius biopic”, and the “tortured” part wasn’t even that touching or uplifting, while the “genius” part was largely glossed over. It’s like they just pulled out a chart and ticked all the boxes. Aimless years at the university? Check. A sudden, groundbreaking idea that forms his career? Check. Terrible, insurmountable illness? Check. A supportive love interest/wife? Check. On and on and on. Yeah, Eddie Redmayne’s physical acting was impressive, but I don’t think it’s Oscar-worthy.
On the other hand, I would gladly take Felicity Jones’ wardrobe. Those fit-and-flare dresses and her blouse + midi skirt combos? Timeless.

My looks this week (told you they’re boring):
After the last week of dressing like it’s fall, I’ve decided to bring out some floral prints and lighter colors for this week. And then what does the weather go and do? Start cooling down, of course. But I’m not annoyed, actually. I always prefer colder weather to warmth. I only have to put on my flower-embroidered sweatshirt, and I’m done.
This sweatshirt is one of the items that I wear a lot in real life but doesn’t make it to the blog as often. It’s such a focus-pulling piece that there are only so many ways of styling it, and I believe I’ve featured them all. Ah well. It makes getting dressed easier, that’s what counts.

Here’s a tip: want to wear a scarf with your cowl-neck sweater? Just get a giant blanket scarf and cover up the cowl-neck part. Bam, you’re done.
Figuring out how to style said giant scarf, without making it look like a living thing trying to crawl onto your face, is another matter…
