Blush Pleats



This striped shirt from French Connection is about three years old, and yet I cannot seem to stop wearing it this spring.  I love when I have the chance to re-fall in love with some of my favorite pieces after years of wear.  Stripes are always in fashion and I guess the navy and white combo has been really fitting in to my new repertoire of pinks and patterns alike this season.

We took these pictures outside of the beautiful (and recently renovated) Beverly Public Library.  Libraries are definitely one of my happy places, and reading is one of my fundamental core values.  Anytime I travel, the local library is always at the top of my “To See” list (including the Library of Congress, Huntington Library, and Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam).  Seeing libraries receive the proper architectural attention that they deserve just makes my heart sing.
