It’s time again for the monthly Literary Stylings challenge at Gracey’s “Fashion for Giants” blog, in which you wear something inspired by a book you’re reading (or have read). This month, I went quite personal with my book of choice. I loooooooooved reading Beverly Cleary’s Ramona Quimby books when I was young — I was so like Ramona that I really thought Beverly Cleary was writing about ME, y’all!
And how perfect is that I ended up living near Klickitat Street?! I checked out the book Ramona Forever from my local public library branch and set about putting together a “modern Ramona” look. For me, that started with a cute animal t-shirt, and then I went for a bold color palette, pairing the purple cat t-shirt with my red ankle pants. (This has also basically been my summer uniform: ankle pants + a cute top, as seen here, here and here.)
There’s also a creatively painted bench right by this corner of Klickitat Street, which I thought was perfect for this Ramona-themed post.
I picked up these comfy tan flats earlier this year — the brand is Grasshoppers, which my inner Ramona also likes! :) — and I realized that I hadn’t yet highlighted their fun yet subtle dotted pattern.
Details: Cat t-shirt: ModCloth, old / Red ankle pants: Macy’s, gift-carded winter 2013 / Tan canvas flats: Grasshopper via DSW, gift-carded this summer / Gold hoops: Birthday gift from in-laws, old
Hope y’all enjoyed my modern Ramona! And now I have some more reading to do… ;)
