living in: true grit

by amym

It doesn’t take much to persuade me to emulate the Coen Brothers’ 2010 remake of True Grit. Mattie Ross is the most nerve-y, whip-smart, unconsciously stylish heroine I’ve seen on the big screen in ages, and I’d almost give up my cozy, heated bedroom to follow in her footsteps. When you add her partner in crime, Jeff Bridges, it’s enough to make any girl want to saddle up. — Amy Merrick

Life on the road while hunting for your father’s killer doesn’t have to be as miserable as it sounds. Warm, snugly blankets, an old-school bedroll, saddle bags and solid boots — you could also just skip the manhunt and go to a cabin for the weekend. I vote for option number two.
