Half Price Will Be the Death of Me

 


 Sweater: Old Navy
Skirt: Target
Tights: Worthington via JCPenney
Shoes: Target
Confession time (or maybe not really, I may have mentioned this before): I love bookstores, I literally can't walk in one without buying a book. On top of that, I can't buy just one book, I have to buy multiple books. Why is this? I don't know, I'm a hoarder. Anyway, I'm telling you all this because Half Price Books, our local secondhand bookstore, sent me a whole week's worth of coupons and I got so many books on Tuesday! (I've been verbally reminding myself not to drive to Half Price again) Lots of sci fi books, but my favorite most awesome find was a first edition copy of The Last Tycoon by F. Scott Fitzgerald. This is his last work, which was left unfinished because he died, but his last draft was edited and published after his death. I just thought it was the coolest thing, I couldn't believe it! Anyway, nerdy rant over haha.

Today is my last day at my branch at work, and I'm so sad and excited at the same time. I'm not going t be gone forever, and actually I'll be back at my branch for a few days next week because my branch does all the training for new employees so that makes me happy! This weekend should be pretty relaxing, which is much needed. Tonight I'm going to the Tremont Artwalk which is always a lot of fun. It happens once a month and all of the galleries in the neighborhood stay open late and it's always a lot of fun.

Do you have any plans this weekend?

**It's Friday, so as always I am linking up with Passion for Fashion over at Rachel the Hat's blog so head on over and check it out!!**

  1. My husband is the same way. Sometimes he buys books he already owns. LOL

    Enjoy your break. I love that my job allows me to switch things up every now and then.

    Love your outfit by the way.

  8. I am so with you on the book hoarding! I brought about 300 books into marriage, while my husband had like... one shelf. And I buy books if they're classics, or if they just have pretty covers. It's bad. Haha!

    I LOVE your hair in these pictures! And, of course, that outfit. So adorable. Polkadots = love.
