Pemberley


All Saints shirt (here), Free People shorts, Isabel Marant sneakers (here), Louis Vuitton bag, Eric Javits hat, Sermoneta gloves (here)

I became so excited upon the arrival of these sneakers that I decided to haphazardly  integrate them with things that somehow sartorially suit Jane Austen's time. At least from the waist up. The pairing of lipstick red leather gloves and paisley cutoff shorts can be questionable yet imperative to justify sneakers worn with prim 18th century things. As for the book, which I find is an agreeable substitute for a clutch, it proves how I'm gradually working up towards being obsessed with Pride & PrejudiceI have always admired the aesthetics and simplicity of living during that time although I suspect it could be pretty boring without iPhones and such. 
And who cannot fall for Mr. Darcy, I don't know.
