Has it not been the best weekend?!? There’s just something about that first weekend when it’s warm enough for patio seating and cocktails in the sun. I hope you were able to enjoy some sunshine this weekend as well. I’ve got a new book & look for you today that will hopefully get you ready for spring fashion and spring reading!
BOOK: The Last of August by Brittany Cavallaro
The second book in the Charlotte Holmes trilogy, August takes place during winter break for Charlotte and Jamie who are looking to unwind a bit after a stressful (to say the least) fall semester at school. When Charlotte’s uncle Leander goes missing while working on an art-forgery case, Charlotte and Jamie waste no time getting involved. Their sleuthing takes them around Europe, with trouble and mystery awaiting them at every turn. As they uncover the meaning behind Leander’s disappearance, it threatens everything they thought they knew about their lives and about each other.
I adore this series. The characters, the story line, the humor—all of it makes for a great YA novel. I admittedly know nothing about the real Holmes and Watson story, but Brittany Cavallaro weaves in just enough history to make you feel connected and informed. This book is fast-paced and suspenseful, yet still young and funny. I found myself laughing out loud at some points in this novel and, although I liked the first book a little better, this one is still worth the read! I am looking forward to finishing off the trilogy when book three comes out!
I am loving this Francesca’s top! The embroidered feminine details make it a unique piece to add to my spring wardrobe. I thought the fit might not work for me because I typically don’t like “boxy” tops, but this one is cut in such as way so that I don’t look wider in it (at least I don’t think so). It is perfect to pair with blue jeans or a fancier white pair of pants or shorts. This beauty will for sure be on repeat this spring. Also on repeat will be these peep-toe booties are from DSW. Are these a thing for spring?? Or are they really only for fall? Whatever, I’m wearing them in spring. Deal with it.
Only a four day work week ahead for me! Get me to Friday! 🙂 xo
