Rather than easing into fall with shades of mustard, olive, or rust, I dove in wearing all black as often as possible. This blouse, my new favorite, has helped me keep my all-black look light and feminine. I’m obsessed with the fit of this top, and I wish Forever 21 sold it in 5 colors so I could buy it and wear it every single day. I’ve already planned a handful of outfits using it! I love when that happens.
How was your weekend? It was Fun Fun Fun Fest here in Austin, which is definitely the best festival Austin has to offer. I didn’t go, but Dago did. My longtime BFF came up with her boyfriend for the fest, and she and I had a lovely Girls’ Night on Friday, full of pizza and gossip. I love being able to pick right up where we left off. Houston, stop stealing all of my friends away!
Speaking of female friendships, I finally started the book Truth & Beauty by Ann Pachett, which another dear friend gave to me back in college. She raved about it being such a beautifully feminist book about sisterhood, but the cover and title turned me off for such a long time because they seemed heavy-handed. I really wanted to start a new book on Saturday night, so I took it off the shelf. One or two sentences in and I was hooked on Anne’s voice. I’m only a few chapters in, but I already recommend it.
Have you read anything good recently? Has anyone picked up Amy Poehler’s new book yet?
