Home Library

Welcome to my home library. The collection is heavily slanted towards historical monographs.











pleated skirt: www.amazon.com / striped tank: Target / cardigan: maybe Zara from years ago? / faux suede wedges: Target / statement necklace: H&M

On a side note, how amazing does Christina Hendricks look in this chic little St. John dress?

That *is* a good look for Christina - which is notable because she so very rarely gets it right. She's so damn sexy/beautiful, but she can't dress herself to save her life.

Love your outfit! The necklace adds just the right touch.

The home library is coming along nicely! Love your outfit as well, that skirt is to die for!

I'm so glad that Christina Hendricks is finally back on the best dressed list. She's had some pretty questionable wardrobe choices over the years...

Courtney, this is my favorite look of yours EVER! You look so smashing! I love the green cardigan on you, especially with your red do! And you do pleats soooo right, lady!

Also I am super impressed that your home library is right next to your home mini bar. That's just decorating done right.

You have an amazing library! Have you read all of those books? Christina Hendricks looks gorgeous in that dress. I've been watching Mad Men every night : )

Punctuation Mark said...

she looks much better when she is a little bit more covered... ha!

Katie said...

Love that necklace! if we ever remodel the office (on my never ending list of projects), it'll be the "library" too. It's in quotes because I imagine I can only fit 1, maybe 2 (if I'm really lucky) bookcases in there. But its a start.

I am loving the pleated skirt and the knee socks!

Bella said...

I love your statement necklace and the cute effect that you created with knee-high socks. Btw, Ann Taylor has a very similar dress to Hendricks' now on sale. Check out their store on Chapel St. They have a 40% off sale going on for Columbus weekend.

You look so glamourous! I love that necklace, it pulls everything together! And of course she looks amazing, she's Christina Hendricks. Even when she does wrong she looks great! Haha.

I love your outfit, in my opinion it is hard to go wrong with a pleated skirt and cardigan. I like your home library, me wants a home library. I bet you have an awesome selection of books about Elizabeth I, Tudor History, and History in general. I love reading History books. Gah, that reminds me to get my tail over to the public library.

I love that St. John dress, she is so gorgeous. She attended the same High School during the same time as my boyfriend. He doesn't remember her well but some of his friends do.

I don't have my glasses on (since I just got up) so I apologize for any errors. I wanted to say I like the edition of the pretty librarian in your home library <3

I think this might be one of my favorite looks on you yet - the green contrasts with your hair so perfectly, and the bold jewels, you totally pop!
