(Storets shearling jacket, MANGO jumper, Bally handbag)
On my days off over the weekend, I always make time to hit up the local bookstore. I catch up on the latest fashion magazines and browse the shelves of some of my favorite authors. I am currently in love with anything by Pulitzer winner, Jhumpa Lahiri, as well as Jodi Picoult, and Joyce Carol Oats. Their prose is absolutely fantastic and captivating. I tend to go through their books quickly because I can’t manage to put them down! Their use of words make it feel like you’re not even reading, but actually living the story.
For my casual day out shopping and reading, I slipped into a one piece jumper made by one of my favorite Spanish fashion labels, MANGO. It’s comfortable, but still chic. It was pretty chilly, so I layered on a shearling lined jacket. I try not to think twice about what I wear. I love just throwing together casual pieces for a perfectly laidback weekend look. (By the way, I never knew that taking photos inside a Barnes and Noble was a no-go! The security guard simply told me “no photos allowed in the building,” in a voice that lacked authority and kept eyeing me my entire stay. Can you say annoying? I swear I wasn’t doing anything illicit! Guess I will have to be a tad more discreet next time.)
