When we were kids, adventures were all make-believe. We were pirates, doctors, astronauts, and even - as was the case in my childhood - dinosaurs. Now that I'm more grown up, I no longer think about how awesome it would be to be a triceratops and ram things with my face (okay, that's a lie, I still think about it sometimes but not as much as before). But I do still dream of adventure, as I'm sure all of you do too. These days, my idea of adventure is to explore new places and rediscover old ones. I want to see all that this little blue speck we live on has to offer.
This outfit reminds me of my desire for adventure. I think it's the boots and the cartography cardigan combined. The boots are a rich chestnutty brown color, which makes me think of leather suitcases covered in destination stickers. And of course, the cardigan is map print! The overall ensemble is part librarian, part Indiana Jones, and part maître d’ (it's the big bow-ed white shirt).
