In honor of the Burlington Book Festival happening this weekend I put together a look inspired by one of my favorite literary characters of all time, Nancy Drew.
Growing up I wanted to be Carolyn Keene’s Nancy Drew. I loved that Nancy was just another normal, crime fighting redhead with a light blue mustang convertible, and hunky boyfriend named Ned (he was so dreamy). She relied on her wits more than her beauty, brought her two best friends, George & Bess along on her adventures and always managed to catch her man, sometimes with the help of her hot shot lawyer father Carson Drew.
What’s a sleuth without a chic trench coat, especially one done in gorgeous lamé? Practical but pretty footwear is a must when chasing down the scum of the underworld as are a compact flashlight (color coordinated with your outfit of course) and chic eco-concious notebooks, for noting criminal behavior of course. Never one to let her detective duties overshadow her style these rhinestone earrings, feminine dress, and a classic satchel would perfectly suit a modern day Nancy.
