Book Looks was created by Jen at Books and Other Happy Ever Afters, combining our love of books & fashion with book cover or scene inspired outfits. Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s feature is:
Jackie Gardner knows all about dirty little secrets. The illegitimate daughter of one of the most influential senators in Washington, D.C., she grew up surrounded by the scandals and shadows of politics. Now that she’s landed an internship with a powerful political consulting firm, she’s determined to launch her career and take this city by storm.
William Andrew Clayton was born for politics. He knows the drill: work hard, play discreetly, and at all costs, avoid scandal. At twenty-six, his campaign for the Virginia State Senate is the first step to cementing his future. It’s time for him to settle down, to find the perfect political spouse. He needs a Jackie Kennedy, not a Marilyn…
When Jackie meets Will in the bar of the Hay-Adams Hotel, sparks fly. But the last thing Will needs is to be caught in a compromising position, and an affair with a political candidate could cost Jackie her career. When what began as one steamy night, becomes a passion neither one of them can walk way from, they must decide if what they have is really love, or just another dirty little secret…
Coming May 19, 2015
I loved Chanel Cleeton’s International School series and I still think of bad boy Samir, so I can’t wait to read her new series Capital Confessions series. For my Book Look I put together an outfit that can be worn in the office and straight to a night out on the town. Since the series is set in Washington, D.C. I can imagine the Jackie making deals with politicians behind closed doors and in 5 star restaurants. The dress is stylish and sophisticated. The pearls adds a classic and professional touch. When I think of accessories in the workplace I always think of the 80’s movie Working Girl and how tacky Melanie Griffin looked when she first started her job with Sigourney Weaver, so less is best. The makeup is in neutral shades and I love the Louis Vuitton briefcase! Part of me misses having to dress up for work but I would miss being able to wear jeans and sandals.
What do you think of this look and what book are you waiting for?
