Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 6/3/11
It’s going to be a busy weekend–Joe’s play is going up, and BOTH our families are in town to see it. This is momentous, people. There will be brunch. And not much sleeping or relaxing. But I’m sure lots of fun will be had, and I’m really looking forward to seeing the show in its final incarnation and hanging out with the families. What do you all have planned for this first June weekend??
Best of the Looks:
There is something so easygoing about a sweater pulled over a summer dress. Add those perfectly-worn oxfords and you’ve got a true classic. (Image via Calivintage tumblr)
A gorgeous YSL ring.
A pretty sideknot ponytail tutorial on Could I Have That

The interior of the library at Oxford University–gorgeous. I want to go to there. (via Pale Girl in the City)
