OOTD: Denim Jacket + Skirt

Shop the Look:
After all of my reluctance to wear a denim jacket (more about that here and here) I am really loving the one I finally purchased. It's fitted but also very soft, comfortable and easy to move in. I was a little worried that the light wash might not work as well for Fall, but with the right color pairings I think it will work. Here are my outfits with this jacket plus one option for cooler weather:

Family Movie Night Favorites
Today I'm joining Erika and Shay to talk about Favorite Movies. Their specific theme is three movies they would take if they were stranded on a desert island, but truly my answer to that question is none! I'm not much into movies and I don't think I would miss them if I had to do without for awhile. That said, we've been trying to have a regular "Family Movie Night" with our boys (ages 9 and 11) on the weekend, and it's really challenging to find something that all four of us can enjoy.
After polling friends and family who have kids of similar ages (and gender most of the time since that often plays a role in movie tastes) for some of their favorites, I also scour the lists on these sites for ideas and movie reviews.
1. Rotten Tomatoes
2. Common Sense Media
We love sharing some of our childhood favorites with our kids (and a lot of them I hadn't even seen again since childhood) and seeing them enjoy them just as much as we did!
2. The Karate Kid
3. Back to the Future
4. Adventures in Babysitting (some content on this was borderline inappropriate for my kids so if you're on the conservative side I wouldn't recommend it)
5. The Goonies
The first two of these came from the lists above and we didn't expect to enjoy them as much as we did.
1. Akeelah and the Bee
2. Bridge to Terabithia (Warning: this one made me cry a lot, but it was good.)
Kids Liked, Parents Didn't
Again these were all recommendations from the Family Movie lists above. For us these ended up being "Kid Movies" that didn't hold adult interest.
1. Iron Giant
2. The Parent Trap (updated Lindsay Lohan version)
There are a few movies that we don't necessarily sit and watch as a family anymore but if someone puts it on, someone else in the house ends up watching all or part. The first three make us laugh every time and are easily the most-quoted movies in our house.
2. The Lego Movie
3. Napoleon Dynamite
4. Star Wars (All Episodes)
