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.
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?
