I forgot how quickly I burn through fiction books. The university experience really derailed much of my interest in them and so I've had my nose firmly buried in history, political theory, and academic journal entries for the last six years. I finally decided to pull up with my new clothbound classics collection and I finished my first selection in a few hours. I'm on to "Treasure Island" now, which unlike "Dorian," I have never read. I love it! Even knowing the classic plot and characters, it's still fun to read and makes me long for tropical waters and sandy beaches. Ah, if only summer weren't ending...
Hair: Cheap, drugstore hairband
Top: Anthropologie Picture Frame Blouse in green
Necklace: Juicy Couture charm necklace
Belt: Anthropologie High Prairie Belt
Skirt: Anthropologie Penciled Abronia Skirt
Legwear: Hue tights in brown
Shoes: New Look kitten heel brogues (super old)
Bag: Pink tote (gift from my mum)
This outfit is a quick, go-to work look. When I first tried on both the skirt and top, I tried them on like this and fell in love. I waited for the blouse to go on sale, but this skirt had to come home with me as soon as possible. I love pencil skirts, but too often they only come in neutral colours. This one is so beautiful, and while better suited to spring, I feel any time of year is right for flowers.
