Where You Lead, I Will Follow

I am obsessed with Gilmore Girls.

Seriously. I own every season and watch them repeatedly to the point of madness. It is quirky, witty, and downright hilarious. You will laugh, cry, and hope to god that you have that kind of relationship with your mother/daughter.

It is seriously one of the best shows and I would recommend anyone to watch it. You will not be disappointed.

Anyways... here is a Gilmore Girls inspired post...

1) Confession: Gilmore Girls started my coffee addiction habits. Lorelai (mother) and Rory (daughter) are coffee fiends. Coffee is a must at all times and is a major theme to the TV show. Lorelai and Rory often get coffee from Lukes - the local diner in the town. Lorelai and Rory are both avid coffee drinkers, but Lorelai is a tad bit more ecstatic and vocal about her coffee needs. Take a look at this video...
Mmmm... coffee coffee coffee!!! :)

2) Reading, reading, reading! Another central theme to the show are books! Rory is obsessed and she gets Lorelai hooked too. Here's another video about Rory's obsession with books (sorry for 2 videos in one post)...
Here's a list of most books Rory has read...
  • Madame Bovary - Gustave Flaubert
  • Moby Dick - Herman Melville
  • Mencken Chrestomathy - H.L. Mencken
  • A Room of One's Own - Virginia Woolf
  • Emma - Jane Austen
  • The Group - Mary McCarthy
  • Anna Karenina - Leo Tolstoy
  • The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath
  • Howl - Allen Ginsberg
  • Franny and Zooey - J.D. Salinger
  • Inherit the Wind - Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee
  • Letters to a Young Poet - Rainer Maria Rilke
  • The Fountainhead - Ayn Rand
  • Snows of Kilimanjaro - Ernest Hemingway
  • Tender is the Night - F. Scott Fitzgerald
  • Northanger Abbey - Jane Austen
  • Atonement - Ian McEwan
  • The Naked and the Dead - Norman Mailer
  • Mrs. Dalloway - Virginia Woolf
  • The Art of War - Sun Tzu
  • Oliver Twist - Charles Dickens
  • The Raven - Edgar Allen Poe
  • On the Road - Jack Kerouac
  • Romeo and Juliet - William Shakespeare
  • The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky
  • To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee
  • The Sun Also Rises - Ernest Hemingway
  • Farneheit 451 - Ray Bradbury
There are soooo many other books Rory or other characters have read or talked about... but I think this is plenty :)

3) Clothes are also a huge part of the Gilmore Girls' life. They love to look cute and always do. Lorelai has a more quirky and trendy style, while Rory's style is more conservative, classic, and feminine.

Lorelai dresses very business appropriate, because she works at an inn. She also loves to wear dresses and is seen wearing boots multiple times. Rory wears a uniform to school for the first 3 seasons and we see her in comfy clothes a lot. As she grows older and heads to college, her look becomes more refined and ladylike with many cardigans, blouses, blazers, and skirts.

Here are some looks I put together...
