My “Feeling Adventurous” Outfit
Shop the look:
The title of this outfit post makes it sound as though I went hiking through the African Safari or bungee jumping off a cliff. Which is a bit misleading, I will admit. In reality, I just went and had a beer and some pizza and then finally went to see Jurassic World (and absolutely loved it!).
But this outfit does, for some reason, make me feel as though I could go hiking through the desert or rock climbing. Maybe it’s because these gladiator sandals and this skirt are so comfortable, or more than likely, it’s because every time I look down at my necklace I think I have a snake wrapped around my neck. And who doesn’t feel like they’re living on the edge then?
I love this bendable necklace because 1.) It’s different and unique 2.) I never wear it the same way twice. 3.) Every time I wear it someone asks me where I bought it from.
I honestly am not 100 percent sure on where I bought this necklace, I’ve had it since high school…but I think it was a Bebe outlet store. I have found some identical versions of it on Etsy, though. (Etsy is just the best.)
This whole outfit is comfortable enough for any kind of adventure, too. (OK just about any adventure, maybe not bungee jumping.) Which is great, when being out and about in the 90+ degree heat. I am just not getting any more used to how hot and muggy it is here in the summer! I had no idea the East Coast had such hot summers! And I was told this one is actually a cooler one – jeez! It’s 60 degrees Fahrenheit back in Wisconsin. Haha.
Now I’m curious, do you have an outfit or accessory that makes you feel a little more adventurous? Let me know in the comments!
Where to find it:
Sandals: Coconuts by Matisse (Similar here)
Top: Maurices (similar)
Purse: DSW (similar)
Can you believe I haven’t seen Jurassic World yet? Shameful, I know 🙂
You are rocking the heck out of that outfit! Cool sandals, and I love the purple!
Haha! I waited forever to see it too, Jen! I honestly didn’t think it was going to be that great, but Chris Pratt was just too much fun for it to be a bad movie. And, of course, dinosaurs are always a good time! 🙂 Haha. And thank you so much! 🙂
The pleats on the skirt are quite amazing. And the bendable necklace is stunning. It’s always great to see bold unusual accessories. As a jewelry designer, I most certainly appreciate that:).
Thank you so much, Elena! That’s awesome that you are a jewelry designer – I will definitely have to check out your site. 🙂
This is adorable! I love the purple color. It really makes the outfit pop!
Thank you so much, Sarah! I really need to get more purple in my wardrobe. Haha. 😉
Love, love, love your entire outfit but now I don’t like the SNAKE necklace! Eeeww!!
Collin And Carson went to the movie also. They loved it!
Love you and miss you Sweety!!
Ha! Glad Colin and Carson enjoyed the movie, too! Love and miss you too Aunt Wendy. 🙂
Love this snake like necklace. It’s so neat that you can change it around like that. It totally goes with your outfit. Cute gray skirt too. Well, I would have to go with fishnets and boots haha:)
Thanks, Joanna! And fishnets and boots will definitely make me feel adventurous too! 🙂
really loving this purple top on you! The necklace is so unique and totally cool. I love pieces that stand out like that and make others stop and question you about it. For me, wearing comfy boat shoes feels adventurous haha. I guess because I can walk comfortably for hours in them.
Thank you, Amanda! And you and I are on the same page with feeling adventurous in comfy shoes. 😉
lovely blog 🙂
happy Sunday! 🙂
Thank you! Happy Sunday to you as well! 🙂
Firstly, Jurassic World was everything a sequel should have been! I loved it.
Second, that purple colour…swoon! Together with grey…iconic!
Love this outfit today. xo
Haha – Chris Pratt was the best in it. I want to watch it again, now!
And aw…thank you, Liana! You’re the sweetest!
Yay, Jurassic World! You look great! I have a few pieces from high school too where I’m like…where DID this com from haha? XO
Haha! Jurassic World is the best! Sometimes it pays to hold on to accessories from high school. 🙂
The top is so beautiful on you. I love the colour of it. Gorgeous!
And I thought of a snake when I saw the necklace! It really could be a snake coiled around your neck – very cool indeed. I don’t really have any outfits or accessories that make me feel adventurous, except for maybe my Marvel superheroes top – but I have had a real snake around my neck once!
I sometimes feel adventurous wearing a pretty frilly dress, because I know I’m going to be over dressed, so knowing that makes me feel adventurous. So I think it’s very dependent on what situation you’re in.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend.
You’re the sweetest, Mona! You really need to wear the Marvel superheroes top in a future blog post! I would love to see it. And holy smokes! You had a real snake around your neck? That would be very cool! I personally am not terrified of snakes like the majority of the population…but spiders are a different story. I know what you mean about wearing a frilly dress, that can make me feel adventurous as well (and generally overdressed, haha).
