If I Played Hooky…

I’m not playing hooky today—in fact, I have a day full of meetings at work—but if I was, this is what I’d be doing…

If I Played Hooky // Curating Style

J.Crew striped tee | J.Crew roll-up boyfriend shorts | Lanvin satin ballet flats | J.Crew bubble earrings | Design Darling Lindsey bracelet | iced coffee (source) | Where We Belong | Emanations of Grace | The New York Times

Notables: Clean, preppy-inspired look (based on my preferred color palette), the brand new Emily Giffin book, a book from my college mentor (actually received this over the weekend as a gift), a chance to complete the Times crossword. I can usually finish it on Tuesdays.

What would your “if I played hooky” day look like?

Hope your Tuesday is off to a great start!

    Hahah I had to look up what hooky was. Cute outfit though!

      You’ve never heard of hooky before?! The horror! :) I think everyone should do it once in a while. Consider it a mental health day of sorts.

  2. My ideal day would be grabbing a cup of coffee and then cuddling back up in my bed with a book until lunch, when I would pick my favorite spot and dine al fresco with a nice cocktail, followed by a bit of shopping so that I could pop in to all of the cute boutiques and small shops I love that tend to close early.

    And, the shorts – love! Perfect length and color.

  3. Thanks for including the Lindsey bracelet from Design Darling!

    If I played hooky I think I’d pack my picnic basket (which I use so infrequently it’s embarrassing!) and head to the park with my puppy. Someday soon I hope ;)

      I feel like I should put a disclaimer on my posts that I don’t benefit in any way from featuring your products – I just really like them!

      Puppies + a picnic sounds amazing. I hope to see photos when this happens! :)

  4. If I played hooky I’d be sleeping in, wearing a maxi dress, and spending most of the afternoon shopping. Maybe a movie and wine in the evening.

    • Jess says:

      Sleeping in and shopping sound idyllic. Even window shopping would be fun! (And it helps beat any weekend crowds too.) What kind of maxi dresses do you like?

  5. Katherine says:

    My hooky outfit looks very very similar – except I wear denim cut offs usually – though your look is much more polished!

  6. If I were playing hooky, I’d sleep late, stay in bed even longer reading, then probably enjoy a long brunch. Then I might do some shopping, maybe indulge in an afternoon nap, or spend the afternoon at the lake, and I’d probably end the day with a movie and wine, per Rachel’s suggestion.

    And now I really want to play hooky.

    • Jess says:

      Yes to all of this. Agreed—what I wouldn’t give for a day to play hooky. Unfortunately, this is one of our busier weeks at work. Sigh. At least I can dream!

  7. I complete a NYT crossword every morning! It’s my morning ritual for my OCD self. If I played hooky, I would probably soak in a warm bubble bath eating strawberry jelly filled donuts all. day. long.
