Linen and leather

After a decidedly busy and full week, I spent my weekend doing one of the things I missed most during college: reading for pleasure. Nothing is quite so relaxing to me as sitting down with a good book, becoming lost in it and closing that last page with a sigh, knowing everything ended well (hopefully). My summer book pile is big, but I’m pretty sure I can get through it. Here’s the breakdown:

T-Shirt: Sears
Shorts: Gap (very similar here for only $20)
Sandals: Salvation Army
Scarf: LOFT
Sunnies: Rue21 
Bag: Maurizio Taiuti via Garage sale (similar here or here [the color-blocked version])
Bracelets: My grandma’s/Garage sale/Goodwill 
Nails: Revlon’s Sweet Tart and Whimsical 

While my garage saling adventures did not go exactly as planned, my mom and I managed to stumble across a few while running errands. This Maurizio Taiuti bag, which is linen and leather, was a steal at only $5. My mom talked me into it, and the more I carried it this weekend, the more I grew to love it. The leather is already worn-in, and it’s spacious enough to carry more than enough necessities. The color begged to be paired with summery peaches-and-cream hues, so I gladly obligued.
