Reading in Style

I follow so many wonderfully inspirational blogs and tumblrs, I felt it high time to start recognizing a few of them -  I thought, who better to choose than fellow bibliophiles? Maybe not all of these ladies are true lovers of books, but I can't help but feel that these stylish ladies with their noses in books are kindred spirits of mine, so here are a few who've found their way into my inspiration folder.

Caroline de Maigret
A Parisian shot by The Selby. Can you get more simply chic than this? I think not. And check out her personal library! Amazing!

Okay, cheating a wee bit here. The lovely Alix is not really reading Nabokov's Lolita, but rather holding her Olympia le-Tan clutch. Either way, some fabulous accessorizing by one of the very first bloggers I ever started to follow.

Marianne of Esme and the Laneway is one of my favourites. Her pretty 50's inspired style and amazing hairstyling skills are always inspiring. And I have to love this cute shot of hers, reading a favourite book.

I loved this book and cat themed post from Kennedy Holmes. Such pretty shots and I love the vintage cat book, appropriately titled Cats Cats Cats Cats.... well, you can see what I mean. And how lovely is that hat? Seriously though.

Last but not least, Heather of Lily Voltaire, who was featured a while back on the Modcloth blog caught my eye with her adorably staged photo featuring a lovely vintage dress.

I'd love to start making this a regular feature, so if you email me a photo of yourself reading in a fabulous outfit like these ladies you may just find yourself included next time. Inspired? I hope so!
