It’s here! Finally after years of waiting Isla is here and I’m sure most, if not all of you, now have your hands on the pretty. I was lucky enough to get to read it early, but I’m having fun reading it again with all of you.
Anyway, today is my day on the #IslaIsComing blog tour. It’s been a lot of fun to host this with Jamie, Judith, Lindsey, and Meg, and to see all of the fun you all have had participating whether it was in the blog tour or the readalong. We are in the home stretch and I can’t believe it is all almost over. But it isn’t over yet. Today I get to do the thing that I love to do besides reading. I get to “shop”. More accurately, play stylist to my three favorite book ladies, Anna, Lola and Isla.
When I reviewed Anna on my blog for the first time I was inspired to dress her in what I thought she would wear. I pulled all the things I new about her and created an outfit that I find to be so totally Anna. Well when I was thinking about what I wanted to do for my stop on the tour I decided why stop at Anna, why not dress all three girls. And if I was dressing all three, might as well give Anna something new to wear.
Without further ado, the looks:
We all know that Anna likes comfort. She wears sneaker (not white!), graphic tees, and carries a notebook. She is her own kind of quirky and has a blonde stripe in her dark hair to prove it. What better look for Anna than an ironic shirt that says “Striped Shirt” instead of actually being a striped shirt. And she would totally rock the mint green Converse. And she can’t go anywhere without those Thin Mints.
Oh our little Lola and her costume-like style. I admit, I don’t feel like I “know” Lola like I know Anna. Her style definitely isn’t anything I would ever attempt, but I like that she is her own person. When I started to search for this look I immediately knew I needed a wig and something that would pass as wearable. I can actually picture Lola in this look which makes me happy with the result. Plus the dress is kind of adorable. I chose the pie earrings for her dad’s pie business and Lola loves her rain boots.
Isla is someone we are all getting to know just know. For those of you that have read the book already you will understand why I chose what I did. Isla is a girly girl and loves a heel. I don’t want to give away too much about why these item were selected, but this look may be my favorite of the bunch.
So there you have it, my stop on the #IslaIsComing tour. I had a lot of fun doing this and checking out everyone elses stops. If you are interested check out the list below and see who is the next stop.
