books, et al.

My favourite thing to do in the world is curl up with a book. Whether it’s by the fire, on a couch, or on a beach, there’s nothing I love doing more than getting lost in a good book (I’m currently re-reading Harry Potter… yes, I know I’m 27…). Anyway, I was thrilled when Indigo asked me to partner with them for their fall collection. Not only do they have the best book selection, their home + accessories line is amazing! The timing was perfect as I’ve just moved and need to update my place (my fashion sense doesn’t seem to translate to interior design…)  I have now filled my home with many Indigo gold accents (including this hexagon gold box, which I’m using as a jewelry box).

My family and I have quite the thing for Marcel the Shell and I couldn’t resist picking up this coffee table book for everyday entertainment…

Lastly, you need something to put everything in. I’ve been using this tote bag non-stop as it fits my laptop and any other work things, plus has a zip pocket to keep all those minis that always get lost (I’ve been known to riffle around in my bag for my keys every single time I come home…).

As much as I don’t want summer to end, I’m looking forward to fall and cozying up with books, warm blankets + socks and surrounded with beautiful home pieces.

But I’m still frolicking in the sun while I can! Happy Monday, have a great week friends.

    I love Indigo, it’s a dangerous place because I am either stocking up on books or candles and mugs, ha.

      hah so dangerous… so easy to spend hours in there and come home with way more than you went in for!

    “et al” refers to an abbreviated list of authors- its not synonymous with “etc” which is what I think you meant up top. Just FYI! Love that jewelry box.

      Hah thanks, totally! I was stylistically anthropomorphizing books, it was supposed to be tongue in cheek 🙂

    I have it with you – I love to spend my free time with good readings (and I’ve re-read HP like a thousand times – no shame)..
