Inspired By: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty + Sponsor: Omoroka

Last week, when I needed a pick-me-up, I went to see The Secret Life of Walter Mitty by myself, and I'm so glad I did. It was a wonderful, feel-good movie about adventure, taking risks, seeing the world in new ways, and believing in yourself. I couldn't stop smiling while watching it!

This movie is about Walter Mitty, who daydreams about going on adventures and about winning the heart of his co-worker, Cheryl. He works at Life magazine, which is transitioning to an online magazine, so it's his job to handle the photograph that is going to be used as a cover for the final print issue, but the photograph isn't there, so he goes on an adventure to track down the photographer, Sean O'Connell.

Walter Mitty (Ben Stiler, who also directed the film) turns the negatives into photographs for the cover of Life magazine. Negative 25 is supposed to be used as the last cover, but it's missing, so Walter has to go and find Sean, the photographer. Walter is a daydreamer and a hard-working guy, so he doesn't want the last issue to go to print without a cover. 

Dress like Walter in his office attire: white button up, black pencil skirt, red purse, colorful watch, and bow wedges. Or if you're skateboarding through Iceland, wear a burgundy sweater, cargo pants, brown wallet, and black flats. 

Cheryl Melhoff

Cheryl Melhoff (Kristen Wiig) is Walter's kind co-worker, who helps him figure out where Sean is currently taking pictures. She has a young son, Rich, who likes to skateboard. Walter daydreams about her while he's in the office and when he's on his adventures. 

A cute office look is to wear a blue chiffon blouse, blue printed pencil skirt, long necklace, and black heels. Or if you're singing in someone's daydream with a guitar, inspiring them to take the leap, wear a striped sweater, feather necklace, pink bracelet, distressed jeans, and boots. 

Sean O'Connell

Sean O'Connell (Sean Penn) is a photojournalist who travels the world taking pictures for Life magazine. He has a close relationship with Walter, despite the two never having met. Along with the last negatives, Sean sends Walter a leather wallet with Life's motto embossed in it. 

If you're out taking photographs out in the far reaches of the world, wear a hooded coat, black sweater, green pants, lace-up boots, and a camera mug. Or dress in a black coat, black chiffon blouse, black jeans, and gray booties. 

Adventure Outfits
Walter Mitty has daydreamed all his life about traveling the world, so that he could have something exciting to put on his eHarmony profile and so that he could win over Cheryl. It's only when negative 25 is missing that Walter finally gets up the courage to get on a plane and have an adventure. 

During the film, Sean gives Walter a wallet that is embossed with Life's motto:
"To see the world,
things dangerous to come to,
to see behind walls, draw closer,
to find each other, and to feel.
That is the purpose of life."
I put together two sightseeing outfits: you could wear a denim dress, tribal print cardigan, map watch, bird earrings, and yellow flats. Or instead you could wear a photograph t-shirt, jeans, white Converse, bicycle print scarf, and travel journal.
