Shirt (so soft!): Target Skirt: thrifted Shoes: Delias Tights: Sock Dreams Disco bracelet: vintage shop
(I actually ended up tucking in the plaid shirt later that day and it looked much better, but I had already taken photos. Oh well.)
These Sock Dreams tights are my new favorite things! I adore that shop. They're actually cream colored instead of pure white, and they're cotton and soft and wonderful. I also got a pair in Heather Slate to replace my dearly departed perfect gray tights. Very worth the price!
This past week was Banned Books Week, and as a library school student I can't let that pass by unnoticed (although I kind of did, not posting until now-- but never mind!) This is a great article about why Banned Books Week is still needed in the U.S. It's a bit shocking to discover how many people don't realize that books are still being challenged and banned, and how disgusting that is not only for librarians, but for everyone who believes in the freedom to read whatever you want. Book banners, however enraged they make me, are one of the reasons I'm so passionate about becoming a librarian.
"And on the subject of burning books: I want to congratulate librarians, not famous for their physical strength or their powerful political connections or their great wealth, who, all over this country, have staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies who have tried to remove certain books from their shelves, and have refused to reveal to thought police the names of persons who have checked out those titles.
So the America I loved still exists, if not in the White House or the Supreme Court or the Senate or the House of Representatives or the media. The America I love still exists at the front desks of our public libraries."
