Inspired By: The Classics Vol. 8

We're already at Volume 8 of The Classics Series! Awesome, right? Since it's summertime (at least in the Northern Hemisphere), I chose journey books because people tend to travel more when it's warm. Have you read any of the books below? I read The Adventures of Huckberry Finn and some of Moby Dick, but gave up because it's so dense. 

Any books in particular you would like to see next time?

The Jungle Book
The Jungle Book
Written by Rudyard Kipling, The Jungle Book consists of 14 tales, the most well-known is about Mowgli, a boy raised by a pack of wolves and the wild animals of the jungle. 

For a casual look that is perfect for summer and lounging around in trees or hammocks, wear a palm tree print kimono, an embroidered white crop top, green shorts, a colorful bracelet, and tan sandals. Or go for a fancier but still wild look: a leaf print crop top, a black pleated skirt, a tiger ring, and black wedges. 

Buy the Book: B&N | Amazon

Moby Dick
Moby Dick
Written by Herman Melville, this is the epic story of Captain Ahab and his maniacal, life-long journey to find and kill the great sperm whale that destroyed his former ship and left him crippled. This is essentially a tale about obsession, man vs. nature, and man vs. self. 

While aboard a ship, you need something comfortable and functional, so wear a blue hoodie, black romper, whale ring, and black booties. Or wear a gray cardigan, light gray tunic, black leggings, whale print scarf, and black flats.

Gulliver's Travels
Gulliver's Travels
Written by Jonathan Swift, this story is about Lemuel Gulliver, who travels to four extraordinary realms: Lilliput, where people are six inches tall; Brobdingnab, a land of giants; Laputa, a flying island, and to a place where intelligent horses are served by savage humanoids. 

You want to look your best when meeting new people, especially when you're in fantastical places, so wear a lace blue dress, black sunglasses, a gold cuff, and black wedges. Or wear a black and white striped dress with a blue necklace, blue bracelet, travel journal, and brown cut-out wedges.

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
The Adventures of Huckberry Finn
Written by Mark Twain, this tale is about Huckleberry Finn, a rebellious young boy who doesn't want to society to make him civilized, so he saves Jim, the runaway slave, and the two of them take a raft down the Mississippi River. Along the journey, the two becomes friends and Huck Finn learns about responsibility. 

Go casual in the hot Southern sun by donning a baseball cap, a red plaid top, distressed jean shorts, lots of bracelets, and blue Toms. Or for a trendy look, wear a striped crop top, distressed overalls, dotted Keds, and a brown crossbody bag.

  1. I had to read Moby Dick in school, and it was the one book that I really struggled with! It's such a dense book. But you've made a great look from it! I also really love the Jungle Book one, it's so perfect for summer right now :)
