I’ve been slacking on the outfit photo front, but this idea occurred to me out of the blue today, so I thought I would see where it goes. Why not take outfit photos with the book I’m reading each week, and talk a little about the book, a little about the outfit?
Oxfords: Wanted, via DSW
I got these oxfords last weekend and I’ve been experimenting a bit with what to wear them with. I felt like this outfit was a mix of nautical with some menswear thrown in there (with the trousers and oxfords).
Looking at the photographic evidence, the color of the oxfords and the khakis may match a little too closely, but I felt pretty snazzy at the office today, so maybe they’ll be paired again. Who knows?
The Book: I’ve now been reading 2666 for nearly two months (with a 3 week break for book club and library reading) and I’m finally in the home stretch–less than 100 pages (of 900) remaining! I’m glad I stuck it out, because the last section has enchanted me, and after the rough slog through 300 pages of brutal rapes and murders, I feel as though the book is paying off. It’s so complex and brutal and sprawling–it’s been a tough read, but I really feel a sense of accomplishment as I heft it on and off the subway, through doctor’s offices, from my couch to the bed. I’m almost done, and I’m very happy I stuck it out.
