Sapphire Safari

______Oh man, it's been one of those weeks.  One of those weeks where just when you've finished something for the sole purpose of getting ahead, you receive even more things to do, and you're all, wait a minute! I just finished something that's due in two weeks.  What's going on?  And then you start acting a little bit insane over the tiniest things and maniacally work your butt off all week until you're finally greeted by the weekend's warm embrace.  But I guess that's kind of how most people's weeks go, no?

______ The result of such a hectic week was one crazy dream that you guys may or may not be interested in hearing about.  I dreamt that I was a giant bat whose primary objective was to a) fly around like the super cool bat that I was and b) liquify myself into a ship's hull to obtain a sacred golden vegetable (I think it was celery?) that was crucial to the opening of the newest Hobby Lobby arts and crafts store.  Unfortunately, I kept getting blocked off by this flying purple holiday wreath and the humans below detected that I was not entirely of the bat species, both factors which made my mission quite difficult.  I think my mission was successful in the end, though.  I'm not entirely sure.  I might've actually caught on fire.

______Upon researching some of the symbols that appeared in this totally interesting dream, I learned that I am apparently bitterly disappointed with life, have realized a new dark potential within myself, and need to worry about my financial situation.  Well, that's one super enlightening and positive way to see it!

______So basically, the interpretation makes just as much sense as my dream.  What about you guys?  Any silly and/or thought-provoking dreams you'd like to share?

Your dream sounds beyond epic - like something i would want to incept, haha. I feel like dreams that are adventures never really finish before you wake up so you never know the ending. It's pretty frustrating.

I love that you mixed royal blue with leopard though - it's one of those combinations I would never try but ends up looking amazing on someone else. Gorgeous! You always rock those bright colors! :)

My dreams are always so weird but I think yours takes the cake. Last night I did dream that I owned a houseboating company but unfortunately there was no sacred golden veggies on my boats.

I always love how you wear awesome little socks with your boots. It adds such a great detail.

That deep blue it´s a beautiful color in you.. I like it your blouse.. And your accesories are beautiful...


Well... said...

Whoa, that is one crazy dream 0_o
Haha, I'm jealous you remembered even that much, I usually wake up and forget mine. However, I will always remember this one dream where I was flying over a carnival in a hot air balloon that crashed, and I was hunted down by my teachers that were sending blow darts at me.
Yeah...I'd be interested to know the meaning behind THAT dream for sure!
Annnyyywaaay, may I just say that rich shade of blue is just stunning on you Ali :) And your matching socks strike again! I love em!

I had a dream one time that I met a guy in the downtown area of my city and he was holding a huge fish. And I mean huge, and it appeared that he had just caught it. We then preceded to have coffee together and the fish just sat on the table with us hahaha
My roommate is convinced that I'm going to meet this man one day when I'm walking downtown. Not too sure what it really means though.

On another note, I love this look!!

Love the jewel tones and leopard! I have not had a memorable dream in a while, though I do enjoy looking up the symbolism when I do - what great insight!

You're so pretty Ali Hval!!

Keit said...

My dreams are usually one of those- WTF moments :D Yours is kind of funny :D I don't think symbolism will help much to decipher it. They write always the same things- having problems with money, friends or boyfriend yada yada. Blue look great on you, I'm jealous :D I look like a ghost in blue.

Cynthia Adiesti Alivia said...

Oh God, you look gorgeous :D that blue on you just stunning!

Love the royal blue with the leopard! The necklace is wow!!
I frequently have weird dreams and more frequently nightmares. I will do an incredible scary book if I write all my dreams. :D

Daria said...

:D I always dream crazy stuff like that :D
And as you can see in my current post, I love the leo print, so it's no surprise that I really really like your combination. You inspired me to wear my dress with a blue sweater over it ;)

you look gorgeous, the blue looks so good on you!


Joyce said...

Woah that is a pretty crazy dream but also so awesome. Bats are so cool and the fact that you could liquify yourself makes it even more cool! My dreams are usually pretty weird too although I can only remember parts of it after I wake up and then the parts I remember don't make all that much sense even though it seemed very logical when I was sleeping. (like I still remember this one dream where I had a dog but it didn't have a face but it liked to eat fried rice...)

Anyway, I LOVE the bright blue and how it matches the pretty necklace. You have so many colorful clothes :D

sonia de macedo said...

Wow what a dream! I've had a few like that and once you look into their meanings it does kinda make sense and enlightens you slightly! Loving the cobalt blue on you lovely,

folloving you!

Marie McGrath (The Joy of Fashion) said...

That certainly sounds like an interesting dream! I usually have lame dreams that are just things that I have seen in love movies or stuff like that. In fact, most of the times I don't dream at all. I'm so sorry to hear you had such a hectic week. BTW, You look fab!

Katie Aman said...

Hahaha! I have crazy dreams ALL THE TIME. Last night in my dream I was in a cabin in the woods and a hawk was flying around and it saw me and tried to get in the window to eat me. So naturally I had to hide behind a refrigerator so that it couldn't look into my eyes, which would make it want to eat me. Sounds legit right?
In other news I adore your ensemble once again! That blue looks just fantastic on you and your bib necklace is stunning! Such a beautiful accessory to this outfit. The leopard is great on you too-you have some serious gams!

Ashley said...

What an insane dream!! I haven't had a dream that epic in a long time!

You look amazing (as always), lovely! I thought red was your color, but blue looks just as stunning on you. I think you might just be a 'rainbow' girl as any color of the rainbow looks absolutely perfect on you! I am also loving the addition of the leopard...too fantastic! xx
