Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 6/18/10
This week has been pretty hectic–I’m still playing catch up from not having done a “Best of…” post last week! Sorry about that, friends. Without further adieu, here are my Friday bests:
What I Wore was one of the first style blogs I found myself checking daily, coveting Jessica’s outfits (ok, and pretty much her life–her blog is her job and she’s got a book deal and she lives in Brooklyn–I could go on, but I won’t) and getting ideas for my own outfits. I know that mixing patterns has been something of a trend for a while now, but there’s something about the mix of these colors and patterns that’s subtle, while still getting the point across. It’s something I would love to challenge myself with. How about you? Do you let your pattens mingle?
Best of the Looks:
Best of the Books:
Amazing photos of the Library of Congress from Boing Boing
For the truly devoted Carrie Bradshaw fan–Sex and the City, the Prequel
Flavorwire compiled a “nerdy mixtape” of songs inspired by modern literature.
In just a couple of hours, I’ll be absconding from the city and driving up to York Beach, Maine, to spend the weekend relaxing with my mom and my sister. I’m looking forward to it! What are you all up to this weekend?
