Wrapped up in books

Tunic and Leggings: H&M
Boots: Evans
Headband and Scarf: Urban Outfitters

I've been really busy lately trying to get caught up in school and working every day in between. It's stressful and I don't really have time to think about what I'm going to wear. Because of this, I've been wearing the same old thing. The H&M stripe tunic is a couple weeks old and was only $6 (not on sale)! They also have a navy stripe version, but I like the pink better. So far I've worn it with my grey boyfriend blazer, oversized cardigans, and denim jacket. Sure, it's boring, but it's comfortable and takes less than a minute to throw on.

Tunic and Leggings: H&M
Boots: Ebay
Necklace: Buffalo Exchange

This is another variation of the last outfit. This tunic was only $15 at H&M and I'm obsessed with it! It's the perfect fit and length in both the front and back. Needless to say, I managed to squeeze in some minor retail therapy after class within the past couple of weeks. The good thing is that I'm totally in love with everything I bought and everything was priced way lower than normal. More on the other pieces later!


  1. The H&M shirt everyone is talking about ;)

    I like the background, looks good for a fotoshoot!

  2. I love both tunics and want them so badly. I haven't had an luck at H&M recently, I might have to give them a try again.

    you look so great in both looks and so comfy chic.

  3. This is super cute.

    Just wondering, how did you find those boots on Ebay? I've been looking for a pair like them for so long and I just don't know where to start!

  4. Katrin - Yes I noticed that a couple other bloggers have posted the same tunic I bought. It's a great, affordable piece! And the books - well, that's how my bedroom has looked since I moved over a month ago! It's chaos!

    Sabrina - You have to go to H&M before they run out of the good stuff! They have some amazing prices right now on basics that aren't so basic.

    Steph - I usually start my ebay search with "vintage 7 [my shoe size] boots". You could also type in "flat boots" "brown leather boots" or "pirate boots". You don't always have to type in "vintage" or your size because you never know if a shoe might run big or small. Be prepared to sift through a lot of things that you don't necessarily want to see! There are always hidden gems on ebay, so trust me, it's worth it!

  5. Hello prettiness :)
    Just showin' you some love with a blog award :)


  6. Cute! I'm always afraid I'll look like a lumpy sack if I wear something loose with leggings, but you look ADORABLE. Makes me want to give it another try. xD

  7. hey! i have that shirt as well! but in light gray with white stripes. i havent worn mine yet but i was planning on wearing it in a similar way (black skinny jeans...) who can pass up a $6 tee?
