flea markets, florals and books


Yesterday I went to the flea market. There's always a bunch of wonderful things to look at, but the book section is my favourite. I ended up finding a lot of books that I'll need to read in university this coming fall, as well as some books that I've been wanting to read just for fun. I definitely need to go back soon and peruse the shelves once more.
---------
I chose to wear pieces that I like compared to pieces that would deem my outfit extremely creative or something. I think that as a blogger I sometimes forget that it's fun to just "dress down".

The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, The Cantebury Tales, Cat's Eye, The Great Gatsby, A Tale of Two Cities, Persuasion, King Lear

Wearing a Marks and Spencer blouse, vintage skirt, Ray Ban Wayfarers, gifted jewelry.

I sometimes tell myself to dress down, too! As much as I love lots of belts and fluffy skirts and preppy outfits, it's fun to just wear a simple outfit once and awhile. (Although simple for me is sometimes still deemed "dressing up" which is rather bizarre hahah.)

You look great! The florals are so summery and pretty! As are these photos.

And I've never been to the flea market in TO - I'll have to check 'er out one day!

Gaaah, now I want to steal your outfit! tehe.
The subtle lace corner of your collar is soo soo soo pretty. I've been searching for a blouse like that for ages and now my prayers have been answered ;)

You look absolutely stunning!
