When people say they’re really into the Kennedys, I have to laugh. You see, I’ve been obsessed for quite some time now. I don’t use the word obsess lightly. When the boy first saw my bedroom, and, therefore, my Kennedy bookcase, he was shocked. He knew I liked the Kennedys, but he had NO idea.
The truth is that I’m absolutely fascinated by that family, and, of course, I idolize Jackie. It’s easy to look at them on the surface and say that Jack was a spoiled playboy, and Jackie was a style icon who put up with a cheating husband for too long, but their story is much more intriguing than that.
Anyway, I’ll get off my high horse. Today marks the fiftieth annivesary of JFK’s assination (and, also, my half birthday. We have a connection), so I figured what better way to honor one of my favorite historical figures than with photos of him in his preppy best?
