i stole these oxfords from the super trendy librarian up the street.

 tee: borrowed from my sister /shorts: GAP / fuschia oxfords (Sadonna) : c/o Bait Footwear / lipstick (Moxie) : c/o Radiant Cosmetics

okay, so not really but oxfords have always reminds me of librarians. or super smart, genius people. though i wouldn't put myself in the genius category at all (except for maybe on the good days that i beat my dad in a couple rounds of Jeopardy), i worked a summer job at a base library back in high school. i was a reader back then too so i always loved helping pick up the new books from the NY Bestseller lists and being the first to check them out when they came in. i also loved checking out books for library customers - something about that flickering red light over the barcode and the library cards slipping in and out of their pockets and and the beep sound the computer made always made me super giddy. so there you have it - if you thought i was a book nerd before, i just took you to another level of my book nerdiness.

much love
{happy tuesday, friend.}
