Wearing: Melissa Araujo Cut Out Dress, Oak and Fort Shirt Dress, Adidas Superstar, Alexander Wang Marion Bag, THP SHOP Bound Cuffs.

My prayers for a good September have been answered so far. The weather has been insanely nice for this time of the year, I have not touched a fall jacket or sweater yet. I have been able to spend my days in a dress and a light outerwear. This Melissa Araujo Dress is one of my favourites from the Linear collection; it is minimal, simple but has its own personality. There is also nothing like a good pair of sneakers to give some street style credit to the whole outfit.

One of my friends asked me to list my 10 favourite books... it is very hard for me as I love to read. Thinking about what I have read during different times in my life, and how I have liked or identified with different books, makes it difficult to pick so few, but I will try my best. In your comments please let me know what your favourites are as well. The ever evolving and changing list in no particular order:

1. Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austin)
2. Jane Eyre (Jane Austin)
3. Lord of the Flies (William Golding)
4. Oliver Twist (Charles Dickens)
5. The little Prince (Antoine De Saint-Exupery)
6. Captains of the Sand (Jorge Amado)
7. Dracula (Bram Stoker)
8. Anna Karenina (Leo Tolstoy)
9. Love In The Time of Cholera (Gabriel Garcia Marquez)
10. The Unbearable Lightness of Being (Milan Kundera)


  1. Absolutely love this outfit, would wear this anyday, anytime. You are an incredibly gifted person, Melissa :)

    As for your favorite books, I have to say Milan Kundera's novel is definitely one my favorites and I also love Tolstoy, though I haven't read Anna Karenina. However, Dostoyevsky must be my favorite writer EVER as well as George Orwell. You have a great taste not only in fashion, but as well in literature. I am wondering what kind of music you listen to or what are your favorite musicians/bands. :)

  2. A lot of your favourite books are on my top 10 as well, so nice! I specially love the unbearable lightness of being by Milan Kundera!

  3. Perfect layering! I love the shirt dress, it has the right length!
