The Bookish Sort

I wear these tights all the time, but usually backwards so the stud detail is just a minor note. After all, I've heard a good outfit should make as much of an impression leaving a room as it does entering it. For today though to add some extra quirkiness to my look I wore them the correct way with the glossy black studs front and center. The added texture sort of mixes up what might have been a literal "geek chick" outfit; geek chic for the penny loafer heels and cardigan combination, not for the eyeglasses (because sporting frames to correct your vision does not make everything you wear geek chic).

Also, so madly in love with these shoes. With the front platform the heel height is pretty comfortable and the front flap means they're still nicely snug for my narrow feet. I usually wear lace-up shoes because most heels are made too wide and my feet can't stay in them properly. These aren't lace-ups, but I still feel quite secure in them: win-win. The fact that they remind me of librarians and octogenarians is just an added bonus.

    I like how the tights look, they look like some kind of armor.

  3. Oh I really love this look, love the pink, purple, those fab tights and those heels. I have the opposite problem, my feet are wide so I find it hard to find shoes that don't squeeze my feet!

  6. What a lovely outfit! I love your dress so much, and that scarf matches so perfectly. <3

    Your tights are great! I don't remember seeing them before - frontwards or backwards. I don't know if I would have the courage to wear them frontwards, so cudos to you for not only attempting it, but looking great in them!

  9. Good outfit/background combination! I like how the dress has pretty "splotches" and the wall does too! And the pink scarf stands out nicely. (:

  11. That comment is so right. "An outfit should make as strong impression leaving the room as entering." What sound advice!

    This is a great outfit, because it combines elements of demure, feminine, spring, edgy, mature, military, geeky, while still very much fitting into your very distinct aesthetic. I think you look amazing in glasses and hope you wear them more often.

    I should say the same thing of myself, but I think my glasses make me look like a little kid. I really need to find new ones that don't slip down my face due to my lack of a nose. :)

    I need those tights.

  12. I've always liked these tights! I equally love these new loafers!

    PS: I agree - glasses do not always mean geek chic!

  13. Those shoes are gorgeous.
    I can't seem to get over feeling like I have to do geek chic when I wear my glasses, so I just wear contact lenses most of the time. I do love geek chic, but for some reason feel because I actually have to wear them it's not quite so 'chic' anymore!

  26. Another fantastic outfit, Rebecca. I have the opposite problem with my wide as feet! I have shoes very similar to yours and it pinches the front part of my feet so badly.

  27. I am also madly in love with those shoes, they have a similar pair in topshop I have been drooling over!

  29. I have been eyeing these shoes precisely for their fabulously librarian-esque properties.

  30. Adorable outfit. A little tip - what you are thinking about comes across in your eyes. You usually look like you don't trust the cameraman. You look rather guarded. Think about someone you love, or something you really love and your facial expression will look soo much better. Try it. Because you look like you're not enjoying yourself.

  31. @Serena, Honestly, I don't usually pulish or respond to the sort of comment you posted, but I'm feeling feisty tonight. Basically: you don't know what you're talking about. If you had any familiarity with my blog (or even took the time to read my profile in the sidebar, let alone the FAQ) you would know that I take my own pictures. Meaning the "camera man" you refer to me not trusting is merely a tripod.
    But really, I don't care if I look like I'm glaring at my tripod or not trusting the viewer. I'm not a model, nor am I some happy-go-lucky person; if people don't like my pictures or my melancholy expressions they can go look elsewhere. I'm a moody girl; if I look moody & "like I'm not enjoying" myself to you: oh well. I'm not hear to make you happy, nor am I here to project some cookie-cutter image of comfort and joy. I'm here to be me.
