Book Worm

This sweater is one of my most treasured vintage finds ever! The thrifting gods were definitely shining down on me with this one.  And to make things even better, I stumbled on the perfect pair of matching shorts on the same trip. This outfit is definitely one of those examples of clothing speaking to me.  It practically put itself together! It pains me to part with but I decided to get some use out of it before listing it on my Etsy site. Which by the way has a couple new listings as of yesterday. 

Anyways, these were snapped on my way to the library. Getting a library card was one of the best things I've done since moving back home. I am such a bookworm, and the fact that I go through books so quickly, a well-stocked library is a god's send.

Oh it makes my heart happy that you're a book worm! Me too! My home is overflowing with books hiding away in every corner and on every surface!

The sweater was a great find. I love things that just come together like that. What books are you reading at the moment? I'm finishing up Wild Swans by Jung Chang, and can't wait to start Just Kids by Patti Smith!

I love this. The jacket and shorts were amazing finds!

I adore books as well. When I've got a bit of spare time I tend to find myself living at the library, I just can't help myself.
