I'm Lying on the Moon | Ukulele and Little Red Dress

Happy Monday lovelies!

One of my favorite films this year was Her starring Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johanson's voice. There's a song in the movie that was nominated for an Oscar called The Moon Song. It was originally written and performed by Karen O and featured Ezra Koenig. At the Oscars, Karen O wore a gorgeous red dress and sang so beautifully - I wanted to channel her elegance and quiet romance in my outfit today. 

I also learned how to play the song on ukulele as well - perhaps I should make a video of the cover. What do you guys think?

Dress: H&M dress (similar by Charlotte Russe)
Accessories: Ohana ukulele, Bershka crossbody (also cute by Deux Lux), H&M bracelet (similar by Forever 21), Geneva watch
Shoes: Kate Spade wedges


  1. Cute! I love it and now want to see that movie :)


  2. Can you believe I haven't seen that movie yet!? I need to hurry up and get it from Redbox, haha!

  3. These pictures are so cute! I would love to see a video of you performing the song! I haven't seen that movie yet- I haven't been sure if I would like it though it won quite a few awards I think, right?

  4. Saw this pic on instagram and I was totally excited to see this post!! You definitely channeled your inner elegance and romance with that light dress and ukulele! I learned to play a bit of the ukulele back in elementary from music class- fun times! Anyway, I'd loove to hear a cover of The Moon Song by you! Do that!! ;D X

  13. Oh very cute dress!


  14. There's a good chance you already know this from reading my blog, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE Her. Obsessed with it. It was by far my favorite movie of 2013, and definitely just my favorite movie I've seen in very long time. So obviously I am so on board with you making a video of covering this song, which I also love. Okay, I might have gotten a little too excited at the mention of Her and The Moon Song...


  15. Such a cute little red dress! I like it paired with those flats and the gold accessories.

    It's so cool you can play the ukulele! You should definitely make a video :) Always nice to see people sharing their talents! :)

  19. Hi, I am a first time visitor. You come across very genuine and I like it :) I read you love coffee. Have you been to Austria (Vienna). Having seen your blog and style, I think you'd love the Viennese traditional cafes.

    You look fantastic in red <3

  20. Yes please! Can you green screen it and place yourself on a gondola? :P This red looks lovely on you and that uke is adorable. Is it hard to learn to play? I've heard from guitar players that it's quite different and missing a string or two.

    Another Beautiful Thing

  21. i would love to hear you sing the song in addition to the ukulele. and the red dress is very sweet and romantic.
    love your photoshoot.

    will you post the song here or on youtube?
