Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 5/14/10

2010 May 14

It’s finally Friday! Has this week gone by at a snail’s pace for anyone else?

This week’s best look is from Academichic–which is only fitting, since they have been running a “Dress Your Best” Week this week! I love the look of a scarf belted under a short-sleeved jacket–it’s perfect for this stretch of chilly Spring weather we’ve been having in Boston!

Best of the Looks:

Preppy with a Twist gives great tips on how to belt

A tutorial on an adorable DIY tank dress from Academichic

I kind of love this bag from Big Buddha {via Smart Pretty and Awkward}

I enjoy this cardigan from Brooklyn Industries {via Hug You Wear}


Best of the Books:

Poets & Writers has a fantastic database of journals and literary magazines.

Mother Jones talks to Michael Chabon about his favorite nonfiction books.

Does Poetry Matter?

Brookish stocks household items like teacups and dishtowels with Jane Austen quotes–so cute. (via Tea & Toast}

Have a great weekend everyone!
