FASHION | The Retro Librarian


When I put together this outfit, it instantly reminded me of a librarian look. Probably because there's a shirt, taupe/brown shades, and I wear glasses and an updo. I kinda felt like a librarian from a children's film, but maybe it's just me! Anyways, I quite like this look whether it is book-related or not. As you've noticed, I have managed to sneak in a bit of Harry Potter as well, because there's always a way to add some Potter-ness to life! 
I love my tweed jacket, it looks quintessentially British - and somewhat old-fashioned, you know I love my old-fashioned styles! The khaki green undertones match my skirt and bag quite well I think. On the whole, the shades of this outfit seem more fitted to autumnal months I'll admit, but I took these photos during the week of hell - aka when it rained non-stop around Paris and the river Seine threatened to flood everything that stood in its way. What an awful start it was to the month of June!


On a more serious note, I have been struggling with my blog these past few weeks. I feel less inspired and motivated to create new posts, which is really annoying because I love blogging. That's just a phase though, at the moment I want to get out of the house all the time, spend time outdoors and I've been busy travelling as well. This shall not last though haha, once we hit mid-July, everybody will be gone on holidays and I'll be alone at home again. I always come back to blogging in the evenings, once I'm home, winding down and taking some time off the world out there! ;)


Do I make a convincing librarian in this outfit? Also, tell me what your favourite book is!

  2. You really are a convincing librarian! And my favorite book? Hard to pick. I love Harper Lee though.

  3. I LOVE that you added HP to this post. As you might already know, the HP series is my favourite of everything!
    Also, yes, you do make a convincing librarian. A chic librarian at that. I love everything about this outfit, the colours, the style. The nod to a vintage-y look. You look so beautiful!
    Hope you are having a great day!
    Much love,
    Mona

  4. You do make a convincing librarian and I love the details on the top! It's okay to take a break from blogging once in a while if you feel uninspired so you can come back even better!

    1. Haha thanks Sarah! Yeah it's better to stop for a while and come back, instead of doing it without mechanically without the motivation and the inspiration! :) xx
