It’s my second Booklook post! I decided maybe I’d pair these with reviews of the books I’m highlighting. I don’t know yet. We’ll see. I don’t want this blog to be solely books. I still want to add in some fashion. But I’m indecisive. So I guess it’ll be a surprise.
Anyways, if you haven’t read my previous Booklook post, this series is basically me drawing fashion and style inspirations from the books I’ve read. I’ll usually take the inspiration from the setting, the character description (sometimes their outfits are described) or both.
Happy belated January wrap-up! Yup, I’m very behind. Blame either work (for making me tired) or me (for just being a lazy bum). Either one is correct.
Anyways, I read (and listened) to a grand total of … five books. It’s not the biggest amount, but I’m very proud of it. I call myself a lazy reader, which means I want to read all the books but I lack the motivation to start and actually read them. So I end up reading one book over months.
But with the reading goals I set for myself, I’m way more motivated to pick up a book. Which is great for my reading (but not so great for my wallet because once I start reading all the unread books on my shelves, then I, of course, need to buy more!! It’s the only logical conclusion).
(Note: Wow, this is going up super late! Oh wells…)
As you may already know, I love books. My dream is to have my own personal library at my house. But the crazy thing is that I don’t really read a lot of books within a year. Sometimes I just don’t feel like reading anything, or I just don’t have enough time to read. Also, if I read too much, my eyes get strained and I get migraines, so that’s no fun. But this year, I decided to set reading goals and set an amount of books I want to read.
I love fashion (as if you didn’t already know), but I also love books. Perhaps just as much, if not more. I love reading and getting lost in a book and being invested in the characters’ lives, journey and adventure.
So I decided to start this new series on my blog called Booklook where I draw inspiration for outfits from the books I’ve read. I want to do reviews sometime soon, too.
Anyways, I decided to start off this series with an outfit inspiration from Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
Oh Tobermory, I never get sick of that place! I’ve been thinking about it more recently due to the recent cold, wintery weather we’ve been having here. *Sigh* So I decided to create a post looking back at the warm, summer days at Tobermory.
If you’ve never heard of Tobermory, it’s a small town located around four hours north of Toronto, near Georgian Bay. I suggest the best way to make the most of your stay is to go camping. There’s nothing like being surrounded by your closest friends in the wilderness (ok, wilderness might be exaggerating it a little) and just having a good time.
With no electricity and very poor cell phone signal ( … trust me, it gets better), you can actually talk with your friends or family without any distractions from the ever-present social media posts. Plus, it’s good for keeping active and having fun because there’s so many trails to hike and chores to do around the campsite. Yes, I just said chores are fun, at least only when it comes to camping.
As a broke student in need of new clothes, I recently went on a thrift store run a couple of weeks ago. I went to my local Value Village and it too me a while to find something I really liked.
I’m always confused and slightly envious when my friends show me the awesome and stylish clothes they find at thrift stores while I struggle to find anything I like. But luckily on this trip, I actually found a piece that I really liked. In the end I only ended up buying two items. A Harry Potter book (couldn’t resist!) and a striped Hollister oxford shirt.
Las Vegas. The ultimate destination for fun, games and relaxing with friends. Once there, there’s so many options for places to eat, shows to see and casinos to peruse.
I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned it on my blog before, but I have this weird obsession with France, particularly Paris. I travelled there seven years ago and I wasn’t obsessed with it as I am now. I just love everything about it, from the architecture, the food, and of course the fashion!
There’s books and blog posts focused on achieving that French girl fashion look, that sense of “je n’ai se quoi.” From what I’ve read and seen, French style is more simple and classic. They focus on quality, classic pieces that will never go out of style. They wear mostly neutral colors and very little make-up. Now that’s my style! I think I identify with Parisian style so much because it’s exactly how I dress. My closet is filled with neutrals, I always go for classic clothing and keep everything simple and minimal. Read More »
