Style File 02.22.11

I was totally psyched the other day when I found this vintage Pendleton plaid blazer at Savers. Score. I love finding treasures. When I put this whole outfit together I was feeling sort of school girl, so a handful of books seemed appropriate for the picture. Why are props so fun?

I have a lot of fun putting together outfits from start to finish. What tights, what jewelry, etc… so I decided to make a video about this outfit. I will be posting it in about an hour. Make sure you check back to watch and to hear my baby voice.

    Those shoes are great! I always have a hard time finding shoes that aren’t tall boots to wear with skirts and this looks awesome.

  5. This is such a cute outfit!! I can’t wait to see the video!

  6. I love that you listed the books! Seriously, after commenting (in my head) about how adorable your outfit is I thought, “But, more importantly, what books are those?” Major nerd here, too (American lit PhD student).

  7. Oh my goodness, that fourth picture is absolutely adorable. I love the over-sized glasses and I am loving the matching tights + skirt combo, just lovely! Great score on the blazer too. xx veronika

  8. Love this outfit! I could see the shoes and blazer working with a lot of different bottoms and color combinations.

  9. I love this! Seriously those shoes are so cute! And the colours are great! So glad you found that blazer! Such a great buy!

  10. You can never go wrong with navy tights! Great look.

  11. I love the tiny cropped fit of the blazer and the way the tights match the skirt!

  12. Your glasses are freakin’ adorable!!!!

    Do you miss teaching? I wish you were my art teacher in high school – you’re so inspiring, intelligent, witty and fashionable 🙂


  14. I love how this outfit came together–there are so many elements, and they all work perfectly! That blazer is awesome!

  15. You’re right, that jacket is awesome! I love your schoolgirl look, its very cute!

  16. I’m so glad to hear that I’m not the only one who kept all my art history books from college! I have a bookshelf entirely devoted to them. When I was unpacking them all recently I started feeling a little awkward about it since my husband only had one college text book to join the mix haha normal people keep their text books right!?!
