Dotty the Librarian








Let me first apologize to any librarian I may offend with the title of this post. Something about a nice tan and navy (with a nice burst of maroon and some cute specs) makes me think of a librarian. But the adorable kind, not the stereotypical kind. Though I may be making a stereotypical depiction as well.. whatever. The important part is that you know it's a good thing. It's something I really like at least! 

I've been wearing this exact outfit more than I care to admit. I'd wear it 2 hours one day, to the post office one day, and maybe to grab lunch the next day. I promise I do laundry and I promise I own other clothes. Christina probably thinks otherwise since she's already seen me wearing it on multiple occasions! Whoops! It's just really comfy. The temps cooled off for a bit and they've started rising back up so I'm balancing one pair of tights with a super light-weight sheer dress. Sheer is ~so in right now but I've never attempted to wear it. I think this is a nice balance for me. The burgundy tights are without a doubt going to be a huge staple in Autumn's wardrobe. I can't wait! We're hoping that a handful of days in Chicago will bring cooler temps, too! I've also been obsessed with any and everything gold lately! Gold bags, gold accessories, and most importantly: gold nail polish. Swoon! I'll share more on that next week though!

I snagged this bag via a PLNDR sale for dirt cheap and it's been getting a ton of wear. It's an Urban Expressions bag and I've only recently come to notice how many of those I own! If you're into really nice bags that are 100% vegan then check them out. I didn't know that was their selling point until after I had a few but I can vouch for the quality :) And the shoes are some Target favorites. I waited for them to go on clearance because I didn't have the heart to spend $30 on them (or whatever they were). $12 was much easier to digest! I'm still really loving my glasses though! I'll share my other new pair this week! Happy Monday, friends!

PS; Since I gave some love to PATB this morning, I felt it necessary to give a sweet shoutout to my #1, Loquat! This was the first song I ever heard by them and it still brings back a flood of memories.

  10. You always look Absolutely lovely and today is no exception. I love the colours you put together, they really suit you. I always wear outfits for days in a row, either because I just bought something and I'm obsessed with it or because I have to wake up early and cant be bothered sorting through all my drawers to get something else :-P!

  16. Great outfit! And, I have to say, that the sterotype may be there for a reason ... I'm about to head off to my library job and pretty much everyday I wear tights and a cardigan! It's just so practical - a knee-length skirt is so much better than pants when it comes to shelving books or ducking under desks to fix computers. Anyway, I tip my glasses to you! <3

  17. Those maroon tights are AMAZING! I keep going back and forth with my feeling about fall, but those tights make me wish it was here right now.
    And no shame about wearing the same outfit multiple times a week, we all do it! Why fix something if it ain't broken!

  18. The colors in this outfit remind me of old books. I love it! The Autumn tights are a great color. I bought some in Mustard and I can't wait to wear them with a little navy skirt I picked up.

  28. You'll love the weather in Chicago! I live about an hour north and I've been wearing tights and cardigans/jackets the past three days! It's not really cold but after the 90 degree weather we had last week I feel like I'd freeze without tights and jacket. Guess I'll feel differently next April when it's 65 degrees, right? :D

  29. P.S. Lovely outfit! Navy and maroon and gold are some of my favorite colors! <3

  30. I work in a library and I must say that if you ever worked there, the creeps would come a crawlin'!! Hehe. Anytime I wear a 'nice' outfit everyone feels the need to come to the front desk and say how beautiful I am (the effect is a little off when they've been drinking...) or ask what the special occasion is.

    But I must say, you look beautiful as always!

  31. You are the most adorable (non offensive) librarian inspired gal eva!
    I'm the SAME WAY! Josh gets funny acting when I start wearing an outfit more than once because I have "so many outfits" haha. He's adorable.
    I can't wait to start wearing tights!

  34. I know I'm not supposed to care much about it, but the four dots are actually my favourite part of this post. Not that you're not adorable! But it's great to see the colors you've put together in a simple format like that.
