Bag, Zara. Dress, UO. Hat, Shanghai boutique. Boots, UO.I am still stubbornly trying to "will away" September, Fall and school that is bound to start soon by going to the beach as often as I can. I am still doing geeky things as usual such as watching TED lectures, listening to the soundtrack of Girl with A Pearl Earring, and reading Lucretius's "On the Nature of Things" (there's nothing quite like having a 2000 year old Roman epic poem as a beach read) on my iPad. And perhaps I've been watching too much True Blood lately and because of this video that I wanted to try my hand at dressing like a southern gal for the day with tan leather accents and a floral print sundress. Though of course this is hardly authentic since the farthest down south I've been in the US is Washington D.C., which isn't really "southern" at all. Anyone else also trying to make summer last as long as possible?
