Inspiration comes from the darnedest places, doesn’t it?

Take, for example, the story of an IRA asassin.


Not really something you would expect to inspire wardrobe choices.


But I’m reading A Star Called Henry (the first book in Roddy Doyle‘s Last Roundup series) and I find myself wearing Irish-inspired tweed.


Like this vest. (And if it weren’t summer, I’d probably be wearing my tweed hat with it.)


Funny how that can happen, isn’t it?


So how did the book inspire this scarf? Who knows. But it’s one of my favourites. And come to think of it, the book is quickly becoming one of my favourites too.

P.S. Since we’re talking about books — add the Anthology on Facebook!

    Seriously, I have yet to dislike one of your outfits. You always look so gosh darn adorable!

    I think I need to start looking for inspiration before I get dressed in the morning. Usually the only thing that inspires me is my laziness so I end up wearing sweat pants ;)

    Cool outfit! The combo of the tweed and that floral scarf are very sharp.

    Wow! Hot vest… Tweed is something that makes me think of fall, but you’ve definitely summer-ed it up with the floral :)
