OOTD :: of birthday hooky, Hedwig and wisdom




As do all mothers the world over, mine has loads of wisdom.

So thank you to Selah @ A Bibliophile’s Style, who helped me Pin Polyvore collages of Hedwig-inspired outfits, and taking bits and pieces from all (miniature polka dots, cream color palette, pendant), I came up with my interpretation of that most famous Harry Potter avian.

Because what better way to dress “wisdom” than by using owls – that classic symbol – as muse. And what better way to practice wisdom than by celebrating my birthday month with BFF today and playing hooky.

Hullo, Wordless Wednesday!

    So glad we take time out for our birthdays. It’s like I get two a year instead of one!

  3. Happy Birthday Month Maricel! You sure know how to translate themes to classy clothing! You look beautiful!

      Well, it helps when one has got great inspiration pics, yeah? What did we ever do before Pinterest and Polyvore? ;p

    This is so clever! I love your owl necklace, and how you’ve recreated the Polyvore pieces in your own way. You are very wise indeed.

    My grandmother’s middle name was Hedwig – in Danish the pronunciation is softer, like Heth-vee. I remember when I first saw it written down, I thought WTF? Now, of course, everyone knows that name.

    Have a fun day!!!

      Ha! I am now gonna pronounce Hedwig the correct Danish way and confound people. I love doing that. And it sounds prettier anyway, no?

      And I guess I should’ve mentioned that my mom owned a very similar owl necklace which I played with a lot when I was younger. I guess they were really popular in the 70s?

    Happy Birthday!!! The owl is my “spirit animal”! Love this!

    • mtsedwards says:

      Not yet. I turn the big 4-2 in 20 more days but since I will be unable to take my actual birth day off due to finals, I decided to treat myself now. The massage was lovely but the movie was epic! The Spiderman franchise is just so well done, I find.

    Very creative solution!

      Gosh, they’re the most beeyootiful creatures, aren’t they? I could see myself getting easily obsessed indeed.
