Today’s outfit draws inspiration from one of the most radiant women in mythological history. Greek mythology has always been an avid interest of mine. Artemis is my favorite of the Ancient Greek deities. She is confident and strong and doesn’t need a man to define her worth.
Artemis (or Diana to the Romans) is the goddess of the hunt. She is the purest of the goddesses and lives in the forests of Ancient Greece. I think in these modern times, Artemis would roam the woods in something like this.
My braided ponytail and sturdy brown riding boots give that aura of the huntress. I always wear my hair this way when I play sports or go running. It’s one of the reasons I wanted to grow my hair long years ago. I love the tough yet graceful look of a high swishy braid.
The billowy floral top is from Bardot. I loved it the instant I saw it. This is the element that really says “modern-day Artemis” to me. The Ancient Greeks were all about drapery, and this is the only element of the outfit that nods to that style.
I love pretty socks! Like undergarments, socks are special because they can be your little secret. I love cute things that no one sees but me. Wearing fun socks is one more reason why wearing boots is so fun.
Along with Artemis, I also found inspiration in a dystopian future. Katniss Everdeen makes hunting sexy and stylish without even trying. (Though I suppose the stylist team for the movie gave every element of this outfit heaps of thought.) I loved the character in the books, and the movie did her justice completely. Katniss would totally wear my boots if she lived in this universe. Bonus tidbit: Liam Hemsworth (shown above) is an Australian actor! He and his brother are HOT.
I love this photo. It shows how one of my new favorite celebrities can pull off the Greek look as well. What a beautiful woman. I love that there are so many up and coming actresses who are strong and beautiful. No wonder I find her inspiring.
