Library Chic and Bookworm Beauty

While in E-town this November I snapped up this coat at Winners – I love the cut around the neckline (not to mention the kicky little belt on it) but it’s definitely a fall/spring jacket and so I have to pack it away for a bit now :(. It’s a shame, because I had visions of myself strutting across campus in it, on my way to the library for an afternoon of reading Aristotelian conceptions of honor and virtue (yeah, that’s how I spend my Saturdays lately) in sky high wedges (when I decide to strut, I go all out).


Instead I’ll have to content myself with this vision of library chic…I wish my library looks were this fashionable. Sigh.

Everything in the Library Chic look is AHHMAZING! :) I'm all about mixing thick sweaters with skinny jeans. And that PS satchel is....just...so...beautiful! :)

Very cool that you're doing some studying of Aristotle's views - I did a thesis on Aristotle's studies of biology and Plato's Euthyphro just weeks ago. :)

Great outfit and moodboard...I go gaga for anything by Marc or Proenza Schouler. I've also been snuggling up to Aristotle lately! He's kind of like that annoying friend who never goes away :p
