Of all the hangout spots in town, bookstores are always my #1 choice (being an English major and all). Even when I’m travelling, I naturally gravitate towards them — despite half the books not being in English.
In the future, one of my “life goals” is to have a library full of “leather bound books and rich mahogany” panelling. Just like the Anchorman quote. Judge me.
Going along with the “I read lots of books” post theme, I opted for plaid on plaid. I never thought they’d actually work together, but there’s something about it that’s very unstudied. Paradoxical too. Call it “collegiate grunge” if you will. After great contemplation, I decided that I actually liked this pairing. Let me know what you think in the comments!
P.S: I don’t always read picture books. But when I do, I read the Blue Horse. The Blue Horse was cool. LOL.
As for the shoes, they need no explanation — but lately I’ve been pairing them with my old private school socks. 🙂
Tell me: Where’s your favourite bookstore in the world?
