{Bookish} Style Files: Rites of Passage Boot Camp Edition (+ Giveaway)

Happy Monday, readers! Welcome to my post for the Rites of Passage Boot Camp. My friends Rachel & Magan & I have teamed up to bring you three very different posts celebrating Rites of Passage, a 2014 debut novel by Joy N. Hensley about a girl who is among the first batch of girls at a prestigious military academy and all that comes with being in that position. It's seriously a kick-ass book, and you should run out to grab your copy this Tuesday when it's out!

I'm very excited about today's post for two reasons. First, I absolutely adored Rites of Passage (you can see my review here). Second, I'm always up for sharing another style files (you can see the Met Gala 2014 one here) because I love clothes and love virtual window shopping! Without further ado, here are three outfits I've put together inspired by the overall feel of this novel:

Outfit 1: Pants || Shirt || Jacket || Shoes || Bag

Outfit 2: Top || Leggings || Boots

Outfit 3: Dress || Bag || Shoes

Hope you guys enjoyed these outfits inspired by Rites of Passage. I'd personally wear the third, since it's definitely most my style out of everything I've picked out!

Also, as a bonus, here's who I would choose to play Drill Sergeant Stamm, who is the swoony love interest in Rites of Passage:

Theo James Four Divergent

Because I seriously think that Theo James would kill it as Drill Sergeant Stamm.

And now, the moment you've all been waiting for - a giveaway.

We're giving away one (1) copy of Rites of Passage + Rites of Passage swag to one lucky reader! This giveaway is US ONLY, and will be running for two weeks. Use the Rafflecopter form to enter!

Now don't forget to check out the posts from Magan & Rachel today too! And please, go and grab your copy of Rites Of Passage when you hit up the bookstore tomorrow!
