I am back with one of my original features inspired by Lila @ The Bookkeeper’s Secret and Reg @ She Latitude to put together outfits inspired by book covers.Usually I pick the cover based on my favorite books (old and new), under-hyped books that I want to feature a bit more on my blog or just regular beautiful covers.
SO let’s get started!

I haven’t talked about this book after I read and reviewed it earlier this year. It wasn’t the best contemporary I’ve ever read but I ended up really enjoying it. I loved how the setting was described, it was so vivid and almost alive in a way. I honestly become interested in this book because of that gorgeous cover and I could not stop an opportunity to make something to compliment it. I’m not sure how well it turned out but I think it fits the story well.
Fun fact: This book is set in New Orleans and the day we witness is under the threat of a hurricane.
All she needs is one night to be anyone she wants.
Julie is desperate for a change. So she heads to New Orleans with her youth group to rebuild houses and pretend her life isn’t a total mess. But between her super-clingy team leader and her way-too-chipper companions, Julie feels more trapped than ever.
In a moment of daring, she ditches her work clothes for DIY fairy wings and heads straight into the heart of Mid-Summer Mardi Gras, where she locks eyes with Miles, an utterly irresistible guy with a complicated story of his own. And for once, Julie isn’t looking back. She jumps at the chance to see the real New Orleans, and in one surreal night, they dance under the stars, share their most shameful secrets, and fall in love.
But their adventure takes an unexpected turn when an oncoming hurricane changes course. As the storm gains power and Julie is pulled back into chaos she finds pretending everything is fine is no longer an option.
So that’s it for this post! Let me know what you think of the look and if you’ve read this book. I’d love to know if anyone has recs of books set in the southern states in the US, haven’t read many that are set there. Thanks so much for reading and I’ll see you on my next post!
