Guest Post: Tania from What Would a Nerd Wear

May 20, 2011


Hi, I’m Tania from What Would a Nerd Wear, filling in for Mara while she is on an enviable honeymoon with her handsome new husband. One of the things that drew me to Mara’s blog was her amazing sense of style. Even when she’s playing with trends (which she does with aplomb), she always looks incredibly feminine. So my “lookbook” outfit today is all about being Mara-style ladylike (with a little twist).

works cited: gap denim jacket; thrifted dress and wedges

Because I am a grad student, I have lots of books but very little money, so I love scouting out thrift stores for good finds. I found this vintage silk dress a few weeks ago and rescued it from its future as a nursing home dress by hemming it and altering the waistline. With a denim jacket, it was perfect for a day of reading and bike rides around my neighborhood–my two favorite activities 🙂
Thanks for letting me fill in, Mara! I know I speak for many when I say I’m thrilled for you and eagerly anticipating seeing photos of your sure-to-be-gorgeous wedding. xoxo
