honesty, undoubtedly the best policy

Blouse & Pants from Old Navy  Boots from Winners  Jacket from Aritzia

When bloggers are on hiatus, it usually means they are incredibly busy with exciting things like traveling and wedding plans and new babies - or not as exciting but just as justified - studying and working. I however, have no such reasons for being absent for a week. Has it really been that long?

Since honesty is, undoubtedly, the best policy....I have to fess up. Every free minute I had this week was spent reading The Hunger Games. I snuck in reading during off time at work, I read on the way home. I read before, during and after dinner. I read in the tub, on the couch, while doing laundry and of course in bed till the wee hours of the night. I have to say, now that I'm done the trilogy I wish I hadn't read it so fast. Now I'm  limmited to obsessing over the movie trailer and trying to patiently wait until March.

That's funny, although I have to admit that I'm doing the same thing with a book series that I have read before. There's 10 books in the one I'm reading and I'm now on book 6 after about three weeks. My only issue is that I own books 1 - 7, but not 8/9/10... I need to find them at the library quickly or visit ebay!

Ps love that top on you! Ive got the same one but I love how you paired it with wide leg jeans. Thanks for the inspiration !

Hunger Games is a very legitimate and good excuse to quit blogging for a week. I don't blame you. But I'm glad your back :)

xoxo,

Katya said...

Yep, totally addicting - can't blame you for that!

Also, love how the coat works with the rest of this outfit. So cute!

Katya said...

It's a great feeling to get so enthralled with a book though, isn't it? Especially a series like The Hunger Games! Luckily, March isn't too far away. ;)

Hahaha.. I went through the same thing when I read them.. I hate the emptiness after reading a good book! And for days after that I could not stop thinking of Katniss and everything related to the book! Good to know I was not the only one obsessing about the book :-D

Katya said...

The Hungers Games is a fabulous reason to miss a few posts - I've been there, where all you want to do is live, sleep, eat, and breathe in one of the Districts...

I am stuck on the 2nd book! It's been hard to get as into it as the 1st book!! I have to finish the trilogy before the movie comes out. (That's my goal.)

Lovely outfit!! Those pants look so comfy!

Katya said...

you are so cute! lovin' your coat :-) and i always do that during a good book- rush through it because it's so good, then finish it and be left in a daze...but luckily the movie is coming out soon!

Katya said...

That's so weird! I just finished the Hunger Game series this past week too! I managed to put up a post or two but not much else was accomplished that week either! lol.

Love your cute bird shirt!

Katya said...

I love the print on you top. It looks great under your coat.

Katya said...

hahaha, I just started up the second book and have been hooked. Unfortunately I don't read every second of the day (lol) but I've become obsessed. Good job;)

Katya said...

oh my god thank you for recommending some books to me. I love hearing about really really good books that you can't put down because honestly, those are the only ones I can read.
now I can't believe I typed so much without saying how much I absolutely adore your outfit.

and I've missed you.
but I take strange hiatus' all the time without notice.
so I forgive you :)

I really like the color contrast in this outfit - the navy blue and the camel coat pair amazingly well!
