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?

Thoughtful Third Thursday: June 2014

The lovely Selah at A Bibliophile’s Style co-hosts Thoughtful Third Thursday (T#)  each month.

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

Favorite childhood read.

There were a lot of books I could have chosen, but I think the one that’s stuck with me the most is J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan. I’m really glad that Selah introduced themes into T3 because if she hadn’t, I would have had to try to find a corresponding quote from Necroscope and I don’t know how well that would’ve worked out.

I’m not really into fashion, and I pretty much always wear jeans/short with band t-shirts, so Thoughtful Third Thursday is a little difficult for me. Then, I remembered this quote!

“It is not in doing what you like, but in liking what you do that is the secret of happiness.”

I recently saw one of my favorite bands, Hands like Houses, live for the third time and bought this t-shirt. It’s kind of a win-win. I get to participate in T3 and still wear a band t-shirt! Haha. 🙂
