Trailer Tuesday: Sons of Ben

After making the rounds on the film festival circuit, Sons of Ben: The Movie will make its Philadelphia premiere. I have a soft spot for sports documentaries, so I’m excited about this one. It follows a group of local soccer fans who banded together to bring an MLS team to the city. It was a new phenomenon back in 2006, and now we have the Philadelphia Union to cheer on. (Meanwhile, David Beckham and Miami soccer fans are still looking for a stadium site for the city’s next soccer team. One day.)

If you’re interested in attending the Sons of Ben premiere firsthand, tickets are still available for the film screening and after-party here.

May The Fourth


Happy Star Wars Day, fellow nerds! When I found this Darth Vader boys’ tee at Target (and on sale), I knew it’d be perfect for May the 4th, better known as Star Wars Day across the fandom. The problem? Well, I’m no longer in college so I had to find a way to make this work for the office (and not on a casual Friday).

The solution? Throw a blazer on it.


I love this blazer. It’s not too stodgy, and it fits pretty well. I’m about average height, but my torso is proportionally shorter, so petite tops hit me in all the right places. I couldn’t find my black flared skirt (laundry baskets — they’re everywhere) so I ended up wearing a skater dress instead. The key is tucking your top into a skinny belt, as seen here. Pointed toe flats add a little more polish.


Anyone else celebrating? We had Star Wars mac and cheese with hot dogs for dinner, and now I get to clean my room while watching Episode IV on DVD (which I got for Christmas). In the meantime, I’ll leave you with the trailer for Episode VII.

Trailer Thursday: Love & Mercy

Spring might be creeping up on us, but real talk, I’m ready for summer: hours of sunshine and playing the Beach Boys on repeat. So hearing about a Brian Wilson biopic was already exciting. A Brian Wilson biopic starring Paul Dano, who I’ve loved since I was 15 and saw Little Miss Sunshine? Now I’m all in. The movie also stars John Cusack and Elizabeth Banks.

P.S. If you can’t get “God Only Knows” out of your head after watching the trailer, watch this epic music video from BBC:
