two books in two weeks.




 Scarf: c/o Blossom Yarn etsy, Chambray: thrifted (similar), Pants: Target, Shoes: Target (similar), Sunglasses: House of Harlow Marie c/o SunglassesShop 

You read that title right, peoples! 
I can't remember the last time I read a book cover to cover until one week ago.
I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I think it was back in high school that I actually read an entire book.
Yikez.
But thanks to my parents and the Kindle Fire they gave me for my birthday, I am now a little tiny book worm and have completed two books in two weeks (this one and this one)!
Although I kinda feel like it's cheating to read on a backlit screen instead of paper pages...
But I don't actually care that much because I've never liked the feel of paper books. 
They always make my fingers cramp and my hands feel dry.

I also just have to give a shout out to Blossom Yarn for the beautiful scarf! The color wasn't exactly what I was imagining from the pictures, but I must say that this light lavender color is just as pretty. And the yarn is sooooo soft and cozy!

I'm also loving my gigantor House of Harlow sunglasses from Sunglasses Shop. The bigger the better, in my opinion. I love when sunglasses protect more of my face than just my eyes. I normally don't go for brown sunglasses because they don't seem as strong as black when guarding against the sun, but these (House of Harlow Marie) are actually really tinted. Now if only the sun would come out around here... 

P.S. I'm being re-featured as a Style Crush on GBO Fashion!

  3. I love how the scarf looks paired with your shirt! Cute outfit post! I seriously wish I had time to read books (for fun)-I used to read so much before college! Now, when I get holiday breaks and don't have classes, the last thing I want to do is read!

  7. I read a lot of books on the Kindle Fire as well when Pearl was really little. It's so easy to read and swipe to the next page with one hand while nursing. And since she was the slowest eater ever I was pretty much constantly nursing :)

  10. That scarf looks so cozy and amazing! I've been on the fence about getting a kindle... I actually love books so I feel torn about it.

  11. I don't know what I would do without my kindle. I would probably drown in a sea of books stacked to the ceiling to my room. Hoarders would have nothing on my book collection :) I will defitnitely have to check these two out!

  22. This outfit features so many of my favorite closet staples but loved how you combined them! I am the EXACT same way with my Kindle (old school version) - as soon as I got it I was breezing through books! They just make it so darn easy! What are you reading next?
