Thoughtful Third Thursday – January 2015

The lovely Selah at A Bibliophile’s Style co-hosts Thoughtful Third Thursday (T3)  each month.

You can either pick your current read or use the theme they’ve set out. This month’s theme was:

Favorite Literary Man

This was hard for many reasons. I have a lot of book boyfriends. I also am not really interested in fashion, and I don’t really have a lot of clothes that could fit with any of those book boyfriends. In fact, one of the articles of clothing I’m wearing below doesn’t even belong to me (I’m not really a glittery sort of person when it comes to clothes). However, because I had that article of clothing, I decided to go with Jay Gatsby. I’ve always liked him. He’s interesting and crazy and (okay, fine) he could spoil me.

Robert Redford - Jay Gatsby

Here’s the quote I chose to go along with Gatsby and my outfit:

“It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced–or seemed to face–the whole external world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor.”

— F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

I chose khakis, a bright blue shirt, and a glittery cardigan, and I paired it with these earrings my mom made me and some boots. Not super Gatsby-esque, but I thought the earrings worked and the glitter. Also, excuse the somewhat silly face. I don’t know how to be serious. Sorry it took all day, Selah!

Who’s your favorite literary man?

  1. Ooooh, those boots. I’m in the market for a new pair and love those!
    Gatsby’s not really my guy, but oh yes, I’d let him spoil me just a little. He’s got the cash to spare. 😉

    • I got the boots at Charlotte Rousse (??) – 2 pairs for $50! I got these and a pair of black ankle boots that have a design on the site. I LOVE these. Super comfortable and they fold down so that you can wear them two ways. 🙂
