Adventure is Out There!


  Yesterday, I took an adventure with my clothes. You see, though I can be a homebody, there are just some days when I feel like going somewhere else. "Somewhere else" doesn't necessarily have to be far, but even then, "somewhere else" isn't always convenient. There is a way, however, to add a little adventure to life, without leaving the beaten path of life's daily duties.
   A clothing adventure may not seem like much, but it has been said that variety is the spice of life. Adding a little variety to one's fashion life can make a girl feel like a world traveler, or even a time traveler. All it took for me yesterday was a big scarf and a long, flowing skirt. Though no one knew of the change but me, it made my afternoon of errands in the coastal winter weather into a day of adventures under stormy skies. 



  This adventurous outfit features a dark chambray tunic tucked under my trusty tiered maxi skirt. A faux leather and crocheted belt cinches in my waist and keeps the tunic in place. The crowning element of this outfit is a huge printed square scarf that I tied bandanna style and coaxed into a pleasing shape. Next, a dutch braid keeps with the adventure flavor. Adding a bit more pizzazz is a cameo cocktail ring. Last but not least, boots are the perfect finishing touch for this winter look.

Do you ever have days when you want to go on an adventure?
Have you ever worn an "adventurer" outfit?


Your word is a lamp to my feet

And a light to my path.

Psalm 119:105
