Lorelai Gilmore

Just about the coolest mom ever, Lorelai Gilmore is hip, witty, fun, and loving. (Not to mention gorgeous and way cooler than any of us will ever be.) Played by the effervescent Lauren Graham for seven seasons on Gilmore Girls, Lorelai is the mother we dream of being and the friend we dream of having. So how do you score Lorelai points? Here's a quick guide to her favorite things:

Start your day with... Coffee coffee coffee! Lorelai's days start with a cup (or eight) of coffee. If you really want to make it Lorelai-thentic, try sipping your brew out of this cute Luke's diner mug from the WB store. (There's also a mug with the logo of Lorelai's B&B, the Dragonfly Inn -- you can save a few bucks by buying both!)

What to wear? Lorelai is all about mixing stylish classics with whimsical touches. It's professional wear at work; at night you might find her in a sexy LBD, while on her day off she's most likely wearing worn-in jeans and an ironic tee. 2010 Lorelai would surely love these comfy and kitschy Junk Food tees:

These supercute tees range in price from $26.50-$35.00 each. You can dress up your day-off look with adorable boots like these $60 side-zip snakeskins by Christian Siriano for Payless, or a simple printed hobo like this $20 one from Old Navy:


Now that you're awake (thanks, coffee!) and decked out, what are your plans for the day?
