Wearing Plaid & Reading Books

[Shirt - Joe Fresh, Necklace - F21]

Is plaid a lazy option for Autumn? Probably, but I still love wearing it! When the weather is getting colder and wetter I crave cozy pieces, and a loose, soft, plaid shirt is the perfect choice. Oh, and I think my internal motto might be When in doubt... Add a statement necklace!

I'm almost finished the book I'm reading (The Song Of Achilles by Madeline Miller, which I'm loving, especially as a Classics graduate) and wondered if any of my readers (pun unintended(!)) have any recommendations? What are you reading at the moment? Let me know in the comments! :)

  4. You can never go wrong with plaid:)
    And just started reading Freedom by Franzen. Just recently finished The Lovely Bones by Sebold, and if you haven't read it, I highly highly recommend:)

  9. I didn't realise that you were a Classics graduate too! :) I need to read The Song of Achilles, I would recommend anything by Carlos Ruiz Zafon- an amazing author!

  12. Love that top! I'm in the middle of a lighter read, The Night Circus, which I absolutely love. And it's a welcome break from the weightiness of Atlas Shrugged, though I adore that one as well. Happy reading!
