Kill Me Now

"What do you know about golf?"
"That it's a good walk spoiled."

Rory goes on a golf outing with her grandfather and actually has a good time, causing Lorelai to get jealous. Meanwhile, a double wedding at the inn has everyone stressing out.

Dress Like a Gilmore:

Here Lorelai is wearing an olive green, slightly see-through cardigan over a classic black dress.

Go golfing and use it as an excuse to wear a dorky outfit.

The Lorelai's First Day at Chilton

"I need coffee in an IV."

Lorelai wakes up late on Rory's first day at Chilton, making a bad first impression with her wardrobe choice. Rory has a hard day, making enemies with Paris, getting teased by Tristan, and realizing all the work she will have to do to catch up.

Live Like a Gilmore:
Nothing's girlier than painting each other's nails. Especially if it ends in an impromptu dance party!

"People are particularly stupid today, I can't talk to any more of them."

Rory is accepted to Chilton. In order to pay for tuition, Lorelai is forced to ask her parents for a loan. They agree on the condition that Lorelai and Rory attend Friday night dinners each week. 

Dress Like a Gilmore:

Although this season's wardrobe is still stuck in the 90's fashion, there are a few key pieces that are timeless.
In the opening scene, Lorelai shows up to Luke's wearing a pink cardigan and knitted striped beanie. This look shows her individual, child-like personality.

Live Like a Gilmore:

Install Friday night dinners. Whether it's with family or a group of close friends, start a tradition of having dinner once a week. Since Fridays are busy nights for most people, you may want to revert to a week night instead.

Carry coffee everywhere. Even if you can't afford to always buy a cup of coffee, invest in a plastic or ceramic mug that looks like a typical disposable coffee cup.
