He wanted to take those books in his hands and experience the texture of the covers, the smell of the pages. Books spoke mind to mind, soul to soul across the abyss of time and distance.

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is “Ten Books That Have Been On Your Shelf (Or TBR) From Before You Started Blogging That You STILL Haven’t Read Yet.”
The Blogging Besties series is the brain child of Alex @ The Cheerful Closet and Whitney @ Whitney à la Mode. In 2015 the series expanded to include Maricel @ My Closet Catelogue and me, Selah @ A Bibliophile’s Style. It’s based on the idea of “take one, pass it on,” but we’re passing on an element from another blogger’s outfit. It’s a fun challenge that inspires us to be creative!
Last week, Maricel stole my heart with her white eyelet dress and B&W shelfie.
The prompts she gave me were “summer, sandals, or a throwback look”.
So, I give you a throwback look from last summer:
While I still have all of these pieces and could’ve recreated the look in it’s entirety, that’s not much of a challenge, is it? So, I dressed it up with a skirt and kitten heels, and posed in front of my own bookshelves. I even tried copying the B&W shelves.
Next week, I challenge Whitney to: show us her shelves, pair blue & green, dress up with kitten heels, or recreate a favorite look.
