HELLO, welcome to my book blog, which today will be masquerading as a sort of book/fashion blog. I’m big into vintage fashion, and one of my goals this year was to shop more sustainably–to cut down on my fast fashion consumption and buy from independent shops. I also love combining what I wear with books. I love books (CAN YAH TELL??), so here are a couple of my fav bookish fashion pieces:
Read More Books Jumper
When I saw this jumper on Joanie Clothing last year, I had to have it. Read more books is basically my lives motto. However, on writing up this blogpost I couldn’t find the item on the Joanie website–here’s hoping they bring it back soon as it is such an adorable piece.
Made of a very comfy material, this jumper is great paired with jeans or tucked into a skirt. It’s thick enough to keep you cozy throughout winter, but not so bulky that your coat won’t go over it! Basically, this is just the perfect, slightly fancy jumper that advertises your bookish credentials.
With it’s famous Pride and Prejudice quote, this super-soft sweatshirt makes a great gift for a book lover. The slogan sweatshirt reads “My courage always rises with every attempt to intimidate me”. We can’t think of any better piece of literary clothing for fearless folks. Featuring a hand drawn design, each sweatshirt is screen printed in the UK onto a heather grey cotton mix with soft fleecy lining. The perfect Jane Austen gift to lounge in as you soak up some more classic literature.
This jumper is SO soft and comfortable, and for me it’s the perfect ‘I don’t want to make an effort but I want to look cute’ piece of clothing. It’s a tad more casual than the Joanie Clothing jumper. The quote is from one of my favourite classics, the colour goes with anything and it’s very easy to dress up or down. I got a large because I love my sweatshirts oversized, and it’s definitely roomy. This makes it PERFECT for working on my PhD!
Books never looked so chic! We’ve taken our bestselling Barbara shirt dress and reimagined it in an enchanting book print, combining a timeless shape with a fun print in a classic colour palette. The dress fastens with a tortoiseshell button-through front and accentuates your waist with a feminine tie back waist. Handy hip pockets make this piece even more perfect!
This dress is a QUEEN amongst dresses. Not only is it really flattering, but it also has pockets AKA every woman’s wish. The print is subtle enough not to be in your face but also completely bookish, the length is perfect (long enough but not too long), and the fit is great and true to size–very comfortable!
