For the month of September, we partnered up with Rebecca of The Clothes Horse blog to create a series of four literary inspired posts! Using LuLu*s items, Rebecca created outfits inspired and reminiscent of characters and themes of her favorite books. As an avid reader, Rebecca always writes about her love for literature! I thought this would be a perfect partnership and opportunity to get some truly inspired posts, and I was right! Take a look below for her take on the classics!

Week 1: Camilla by Madeleine L’Engle

Inspired by the classic styling of the protagonist, Rebecca chose simple flats and a timeless black dress.

To best embody the character of school girl/adventurer, Jane, Rebecca chose a pleated skirt and striped shirt and gathered around a fire!

For this book, Rebecca wanted to create an outfit that was just a little out of step, just like the character of the older sister, Rose. In the words of Rebecca, “Like Rose, the overall outfit is a little retro and dated, but overall there’s a charm to each piece and a feminine prettiness that won’t be denied–a rose is still a rose, after all.”

Week 4: Martin Eden by Jack London

Such a beautiful post! This week was by far my favorite! Choosing a peach and gold flecked dress and reading on the docks, Rebecca channeled the character Ruth in Martin Eden. To quote the author, “She was a pale, ethereal creature, with wide, spiritual blue eyes and a wealth of golden hair. He did not know how she was dressed, except that the dress was as wonderful as she. He likened her to a pale gold flower upon a slender stem.”

This was such a fun partnership! Thanks again, Rebecca! Make sure you hop over to her blog for more outfit inspiration and lovely posts on music, art, and of course, books!
