Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 1/17/14

2014 January 17

First of all, I want to say thank you to everyone who read my post earlier this week and wrote such thoughtful, kind comments. The best thing about this experience has been being reminded of what amazing people I have in my life. Thank you!!

I know I’m not the only one who felt that this week has been especially LONG. I think I thought it was Thursday every day since Tuesday. But it’s finally Friday and I’ve got a 3-day weekend to look forward to! Any big plans for the weekend out there?


Best of the Looks:

stripe on stripe

Love the whimsy of stripes on stripes with leopard heels, a jean jacket, and a scarf with an anchor on it. At Poor Little It Girl.

Big fan of this shade of green, Going Incognito, from Essie.

I’m intrigued by knuckle rings and this one is super cute.

I would love to rock this Tinley Road mini dress.

The ultimate thrift find at My Edit.

River City Chic has a style crush on Lupita Nyong’o, and so do I.

Stitch Fix has got some tips on how to pair necklaces with different types of necklines.

Best of the Books:

Ploughshares shows us how your dog can help improve your writing.

Loved this piece by Emma Straub about the curse of growing up normal.

This is everything.

The best novels to read in the winter. 

Does Goodreads inspire an unhealthy obsession with numbers when it comes to reading?


Enjoy the weekend, everyone.

    That Babysitters Club post…. Oh my stars. I got such a nostalgia blast and could vividly remember so many of those covers. (THOSE SIDE PONYTAILS!) I got sad that I got rid of my BSC books, because I got a real craving to nostalgia-read the heck out of them! Wouldn’t that be a fabulous way to spend a snowy afternoon?
