My Life As Nancy Drew

Nancy Drew is one of my absolute favorite fashion/ literary icons. Who else can go scraping through attics, shimmy down a drain pipe, and chase after bad guys in penny loafers and a perfectly coiffed 'do? She found clothes to be practical and beautiful all at the same time. Who am I kidding though? She was written in the 1950's, so of course she always looked fabulous. But that still makes her no less of an inspiration for me.

Clothes don't have to be complicated. I mean when you really look at what I'm wearing it all comes down to a simple t-shirt and jeans. Plus one fabulous vintage scarf. Sometimes fashion is simple. And this is my simple lounge around the house and do nothing but get ready for a reunion with Madeline outfit. Yet something about this look reminds me of Nancy Drew. Maybe its the scarf. Maybe I'm just delusional. 
Outfit Details:
Shirt- Forever 21
Jeans- New York and Co. 
Scarf- Vintage
Flats- Old Navy

Oh! And to usher in spring a bit, I thought I'd paint my nails a lovely lilac. Normally if you know me well, you'd know that as soon as spring hits I'm all about the coral nail. Pretty much all spring and summer its coral nails for me. But seeing as I packed in a minute I left all my coral polishes at school and had to delve into Chloe's stash which prompted me to branch out and be a little more fashion forward. So yeah, I'm rocking the pastel nail trend. Maybe I'm not as classic as Nancy after all...
