Style, Hermione Granger edition

For two days in a row, we had beautiful, spooky fog. The kind where you can still see the sun shining through, creating the most eerie, yet peaceful atmosphere. It makes you wish that you are not a muggle after all, but are getting that letter from Hogwarts any day now.
Don't ask me to see photos - it saddens me to say that I completely missed the boat on that one. I blame it on work and life, stealing precious fog-shooting opportunities. 

I still had Harry Potter on my mind when I woke up on Wednesday. My hair was particularly bushy that day, due to a 24-hour braid followed by a day of a messy bun. A potent mixture!
Who else has bushy hair? Why, Hermione Granger of course! I decided to take Hermione as inspiration for this particular photo shoot. And you know what? I feel smarter already. 

Hermione Granger style
Hanging out with Crookshanks.
Always with her nose in books.
Practicing spells

Dress: ModCloth (no longer available) (similar); jacket: very old, bought it in Germany (similar); tights: Joe Fresh; boots: Target (similar); toque and scarf: gifts from friend (she knitted them herself!); gloves: gift (similar); glasses: Joseph Marc from Clearly Contacts

Yikes, those boots are dirty!
If only I knew a spell that cleans them.

Do you love Harry Potter? If you do, have you ever tried impersonating Hermione for a day? It's exhausting, those books are heavy! (Fun fact: The books I used as props are actual school books, left over from x-ray school.)



  1. Love this! Adorable really. I love Harry Potter too. I recently did a movie marathon and have had it on my mind. I think it is going to be time for a re-read soon!

  2. Beautiful!

  3. Way to help me start off the day with a smile! I don't know what's cuter, your outfit or the "Expecto Patronum" and your "wand"! Haha I love the connection with Harry Potter - my favorite books/movies!
