A Slightly Book-ish Birthday Wish List

Birthdays always seem to sneak up on you, don’t they? I can’t really it’s about time to celebrate mine again. (And when I say celebrate, I mean… kind of go about my business as I would any other day.) But I can’t resist putting together a wish list, especially since I had so much fun collaborating […]

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - It’s almost my birthday too! WHOOP! And dude, how depressing is it to be an adult and have a birthday? My parents always let me skip school and I’d spend the day going fun things with my mom, and then I continued to skip in college when my birthday was on a weekday. The first time I had to work on my birthday it was like “WHAT?! WORLD, are you kidding me?!” So lame.

Anyway, love that dress! And I kind of wish you were serious about your enjoyment of a book depending on what you were wearing because I would SO want to know more about that haha!

TAKE ME TO THE BEACH WITH YOU. I know it’s probably warmer in Georgia than it is up north but oh gracious I just want the sun and heat and (surprise surprise) some Diet Coke, a book and the beach.

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - Hahahaha, I love how you connected all of your birthday wishes to books, even if you didn’t have any books in your list. Which by the way, you have much more self-control than I do. Even with all of my books, I totally have more on my wishlist for my birthday. 😉 But that dress is seriously cute! I want one, so I can look cute while reading haha. And that purse is awesome for fitting books into. SO adorable.

Have a FANTASTIC birthday Estelle!!

Janita @ Book, Interrupted - Haha, my one rule for purse shopping is that it needs to hold at least one book. That is one gorgeous bag. I LOVE the dinosaur book ends as well 🙂

Ashley @ Ashley Loves Books - This is such a cute list (and I see what you did in all those descriptions 😉 haha) – I hope you get everything you’d like! There are tons of palm trees out here in California, a perfect little vacation spot…just thought I’d mention. You know. Also, that dress if adorable! I could never pull off the colours, but I’d get it just to have the pretty in my closet.

Happy almost birthday!

Rachel - I love your style in all aspects! I love how you tied in the different objects with reading even if they didn’t really go together (so clever!). That dress would look fabulous on you, I am sure.
