Fashionistas Read Too: Inferno


The other day I was sitting outside on my lunch break enjoying the sunshine, and I decided to post this picture on Instagram (follow me @Alwayzkel). The caption read: Some of My Favorite Things: Fashion, Fiction and Fantasy…Outside of flipping through fashion magazines and reading other blogs, I really enjoy reading and writing.  Both are such a relaxing pass time for me.

I wanted to tell you all about a book I am reading right now, which is Dan Brown’s Inferno. The main thing that I love about it is that it keeps me on the edge of my seat, and every time I complete a chapter I am PRESSED to get to the next one. Every chapter drives the plot forward. The other thing that I love about this book is that the chapters are super short. Kudos to Dan Brown for that!

Basically, the protagonist, Robert Langdon, wakes up in a hospital and has no recollection of the previous day. He quickly learns that an organizations/group of people are after him and he is forced to go on a wild goose chase of sorts in order to preserve his life while, simultaneously, cracking a secret code. On his journey through Florence, Italy, he finds clues that help him to figure out what’s really going on. He also has a side kick, Sienna, who adds an interesting twist to things.

Although the book is sometimes daunting because of all the Italian words, it is definitely a page turner, ladies! I’ll be sure to let you all know what I think about it once I am done reading it, but for now I am just enjoying this fictional ride.

Have you all read any of Dan Brown’s books before? If so, I am curious to know what you think about Robert Langdon’s character? Are you reading any other books? Please share! I am always looking for books to read or listen to…

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend! xx

Style Icon: First Lady, Michelle Obama

M. Obama 5

Have you ever seen a first lady more classy, more regal, than Michelle Obama? Not only is the woman practically a genius, she is gorge. A lot of people have been obsessed with her style since the first inauguration 4 years ago, but over this past year or so  I have really begun to take notice of how her style is evolving.

While Michelle always looks professional, she often likes to play with color. How beautiful is she in this lavendar number she’s wearing here? Definitely, not anything like the average suit you will find on Capital Hill. I imagine that her wardrobe is full of beautiful hues like this one.

I don’t know about you but I have never looked at any of our previous First Ladies and said to myself, “I would rock that”…Well, once again Mrs. O does not cease to amaze me with these beautiful ball gowns. Showing off those toned shoulders…Her body is looking better than mine! Lol

And have you noticed that homegirl has a bit of a wild side? Every now and then Michelle adds a bit of edge to her wardrobe and I am in love with all of it. Although we are used to seeing her with the “side part-swoosh” hair style, I am really digging her new bangs. I think it makes her look youthful and a tad bit more hip.

BTW, look at how quickly Sasha and Malia are growing up?! I’m sure they will be little fashionistas as well. I hope you enjoyed this post. Talk to you soon! xx
