You've got to be asking yourself, "Why did Monica read that book?" I don't have kids and although I am fond of reading and did read this book as a kid, my motive was different this go-round.
What would you wear if you visited Willy Wonka's factory?
This is a big question because, if you remember, Willy Wonka only chose five people in the entire world to go....you'd have to make an awesome impression! I'm good but this took a lot of thinking!!
My final selection would include earth tones and leopard print....(all so I could strategically eat chocolate and camouflage stains):
- Camel pants [to be able to move]
- Leopard print slip-on sneakers [again, we've gotta be able to stick-and-move]
- Leopard print handbag
- Chic denim button-down
- Camel-colored cashmere hoodie
What about you? I know you've got something better than me!
Read. Be Inspired. Share what you'd wear.
This post was inspired by the classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. To celebrate, Penguin Young Readers Group, in partnership with Dylan’s Candy Bar, the world-famous candy emporium, and First Book, a nonprofit social enterprise that provides books for children from low-income families, is launching a year-long international celebration.
