Perhaps it’s my lifelong propensity for reading, or a woefully optimistic misinterpretation of Nancy Drew books, but sometimes I dress like a librarian. I was drawn to this bow-tie blouse because of my Gossip Girl days and paired it with a zip-down pencil skirt for a mix of classic and edgy. The look takes a dowdy aesthetic and makes it modest, but visually interesting.
