Nothing too spesh, just two quick snaps of my outfit from the other day. Next to me is the pile of drift wood logs Grant and I found a few weeks ago that we are going to turn into terrariums. Note to self: stop being lazy.

I've been on a reading quick lately. I finished Just Kids by Patti Smith and now I am simultaneously reading Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami and a Zelda Fitzgerald biography by Nancy Milford. Are you guys reading anything good lately? Any recommendations?


  1. I'm about to finish the Patti Smith book as well. Not sure what I'll be reading after that. You look great in these colors by the way. And I can't wait to see your terrariums.

  2. Well where else is a girl to get skinny suspenders? :) You look adorable, and only you can rock this look, girl!! <33 So effortlessly-stylish..

    And yes! Finish that terrarium so we can all see and get terrarium-envy...

  3. I like Murakami. I quite liked Norwegian Wood but I like some of his other books more. I'm reading Great House by Nicole Krauss at the minute. I have been 'reading' it for ages but never had much time to actually read it. So now I've started it again and will actually read it properly this time. I'm hoping to get a bunch of books read over the summer to make up for my lack of book reading in recent months! x

  4. I always recommend Fire & Hemlock by Diana Wynne Jones. Some great fantasy right there. :D

  5. I'm loving the clash of stripes with mustard. You look ace as usual.

  6. i read that zelda fitzgerald biography a few years back and loved it. i'm reading another book by the same author right now called "What Fresh Hell is This?" about the life of Dorothy Parker. so far so good.

  7. I love this cheeky outfit! There's something so unabashedly cute and cartoonish about it.

  8. Love all of Kelly Cutrone's books! Def a motivating book! And I love the simplicity of your outfit!

  9. I just finished "The Last Witness" by Jilliane Hoffman. Good for summer.
    Now "Millennium" series is waiting for me.

    Great idea for outfit. :)


  10. Your fashion sense is brilliant. I never in a million years would dream of putting any of these clothing items together. But here you are, looking like a freaking gorgeous genius! :)

    PS. For the past month, I was in a haze of bad books. But now I am reading Furious Love (the story of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton) and it is FANTASTIC. I highly recommend it.

  11. I'd really like to read just kids the face that you zipped through must mean it's a good one. I've been reading sporadically and still reading The Help it's a super quick read and well written. Cute outfit.

  12. norwegian wood is awesome. anything buy murakami is amazing! i am always an advocate of short stories, though. read his, or etgar keret's, or definitely definitely George Saunders. Either Civilwarland in Bad Decline, Pastoralia, or In Persuasion Nation. Anything of his really. Enjoy!


What's up?
