Hiding Away: In Shades of Blue and Green

Perfect rainy day to hide away with a good book. Patrick and I dropped by Prospero's Books store on 39th, it's got that wonderful old book scent. You can always be sure to find something new and different every time.





I got these Mia wedges last week at TJ and I love 'em ($30)! The black corduroy shorts are new as well, I got them from Nordstrom Rack ($10). The olive green tights and Rachel Roy jacket are from Macy's (both on clearance $15+$6). The blouse and beaded necklace are both my mothers ($0+$0). The silver leaf earrings were a gift and the green bag was a thrifty thursday find a couple weeks ago ($0+$2).  
Total out of pocket: $63

Thanks to my friend Patrick for taking the lovely pictures.

  1. OH I LOVE that shop! Just across from D'Bronx, right? Those legs go on for miles! And if we wore the same size shoe, I'd steal those sassy wedges :)

  20. I love the setting of that shoot. Only thing I would add is a pair of nerdy glasses and you'd be so in character! Please excuse my nerdy imagination. :)
