Top - Madewell, necklace - thrifted, skirt - Urban Outfitters, shoes - Topshop
Clearly, I've developed a certain fondness for these oxfords of mine. For a while, I was not too keen on the idea of wearing brogues, but they're flat and comfortable, as I've learned.
Ever since I arrived in London, I've been moving my style in a more librarian-esque direction. Almost slightly school-wear inspired, but I decided that I want my style to capture the idea of a stoned librarian. For the record, I am neither; people simply tell me I sound like one. Quite a funny juxtaposition, in my opinion.
I wore this for what I suppose is my last taste of warm weather until next spring. It's arguably more autumnal than summery, but still appropriate for temperatures above 80F.
I'd like to say I've decided this will be my photo spot, but I was stopped by a woman who inquired if I had a purpose for taking photos. I mumbled something about school, since that seemed the only response that would seem "credible." I'm quite shy when it comes to people watching me take photos, or even when someone else is holding the camera.
I've been pondering a statement from an interview I watched for one of my classes: most people do not produce anything of real value. It's an interesting topic, entirely subjective, of course. Who knows.
