Gatsby Believed In The Green Light

"Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther. . . . And then one fine morning—  
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."

The Great Gatsby is one of those books so filled with rich language and vivid imagery that, despite being physically comprised of purely ink and paper, has a visual aesthetic all its own. This outfit is kind of a modernized, summer-ized, kati-ized version of that aesthetic...clearly.

Hat: Target
Flower: Jo-Ann Fabrics
Necklace: The Arc Thrift Store
Dress: thrifted Banana Republic from Goodwill
Belt: Goodwill
Shoes: Lulu's

I tried to mute the color a bit in this one to give it a more vintage feel. I almost ate it hopping off the car LOL, but I won't tell if you won't.
