Once upon a time I really wanted to be an archaeologist. If it wasn't for the fact that I HATE dirt I might have. I took an archaeology class in college and it is still one of my favourite classes. The professor had the most bizarre habits, but they made it all the more interesting. I think my loves of adventure and history melded perfectly into the Indiana Jones story. While my sisters were all up in Star Wars (don't get me wrong, I love it!), I preferred the sexy adventures of Indiana Jones. And the score is absolutely perfect! Oh John Williams and your perfect sixths! So I turned into a music nerd instead of a sexy adventuring archaeologist. You win some, you lose some. :-)
In an effort to keep cool I dressed like Indiana Jones yesterday. Or at least the female version of Indiana Jones. Cotton blouse, check. Cotton skirt, check. Barely there sandals, check. Funky "anthropological" jewelry, check. Brown Adventure hat, check. I did a pretty good job of keeping me cool. Well as cool as could be. It was still hotter than hell, but not because of my clothes. I knew I wanted to wear this skirt and blouse together, but it looked so plain once I put it on, so I added the belt. Then the jewelry, then the sandals, and I started looking like some sort of adventuring archaeologist and figured I'd go for the full effect. Too bad my whip is in the shop. (I don't really have a whip...)
The hat is one that I found buried in the depths of a bin at the Salvation Army months ago. I've been trying to figure out how to style it ever since. I was planing on going with an The Edge Of Love theme, but I kinda like this better. It may not be the most glamorous outfit ever, but by George it's perfect for hunting for hidden treasures. Even if my kind of treasure happens to be at Goodwill and not the amazon.
