The Honey Trees: Moon River (Cover)

This is hands-down my new favorite cover of this song. Moon River has been a favorite of mine because I’ve been obsessed with Audrey Hepburn since I was young — you know, before I realized it was a tad cliché and everyone and their mom (and probably grandma) also loved Audrey, also saw all her movies, also had tons of coffee table books and bios, also tried to emulate her style, etc., etc.

But let’s face it: there’s a reason it’s that way. Her style is impeccable and timeless. Plus, she’s just so darn pretty.

In interest of full disclosure, I’ll admit: Breakfast at Tiffany’s isn’t my favorite Hepburn movie. That would be Roman Holiday (Geez, I’m not really helping to knock the cliché spin to this, am I?). But this song… oh. I could listen to it forever. The fact that Becky (the singer) is full-on indie chic, with a vintage-style dress and winged eyeliner (my favorite) helps make the video just as easy on the eyes as it is on the ears.

Here are my 5 fashion picks inspired by this particular cover of Moon River:
