Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 6/18/10

2010 June 18

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:

Artist Stina Wirsen creates the most gorgeous watercolors of fashion {via Oh Joy!}

These Bandolino wedges are too adorable for feet {via Smart, Pretty, and Awkward}

And while we’re on the topic of shoes…I will take these also. {via Snapshot Fashion}

LOVE this pretty hairstyle–want to try it for myself. {via Refinery 29}

Best of the Books:

A lovely poem about wool socks {via Put This On}

Amazing photos of the Library of Congress from Boing Boing

For the truly devoted Carrie Bradshaw fan–Sex and the City, the Prequel

Clive Owen to play Ernest Hemingway. Yes.

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?

    I’m not sure if I love the shoes or the mix-tape more. Or just this entire entry.
