Style Icon: John Updike

I bought/read/wrote about this book in grad school, and I thought John Updike was such a cutie (and, you know, a good writer too).

There is a part of me that wants to dress like John Updike. Like, I always want to be wearing a baggy sweater. For the rest of my life, just throw me in baggy sweaters, and I will be happy. (Unless I am in North Carolina in the summertime. No one is happy in a sweater in North Carolina in the summertime.)

Doesn't he just look so fabulous and bookish in his fabulous, bookish sweaters?

Yes, yes he does. And he actually is fabulous and bookish so the sweaters speak the truth. (Also I might need some blazers and tweed hats. Seriously. I think I could rock this look.)

I didn't really know what he looked like!!! His book "Rabbit is Rich" was so good! I probably need to read his other stuff.
