I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Lizzy Bennet of Pride and Prejudice is like the coolest girl in school. She’s nice, she’s pretty but not in annoying way and she’s impossibly fair and grounded. If only more girls out there would take a page from her book, le sigh. Sure, she’s a little bit of a country bumpkin, but it’s not like she’s Sarah plain and tall. If there was one woman from literature I’d grab some coffee with, it’d probably be her. JUST SAYING. Enjoy!

lizzy bennet is one of the most celebrated characters in literature. in pride and prejudice she was well liked, bright and grounded with charm. the whole book she sort of exudes this attraction, not just because she’s pretty but because she’s pretty cool too. so basically, she was that one popular girl in school who was actually nice too. if you’ve been to high school/college on the east coast you know that this girl usually dresses pretty freakin’ awesome. keeping this in mind and acknowledging her slight country bumpkin-ness, i give you elizabeth bennet from pride and prejudice. BOOM.
