This is my look for the What I Wore Safari Chic Style Challenge. Having recently found myself wearing something that I considered safari chic, I wanted to take this challenge as an opportunity to find a new way to wear this trend.
I recently pulled this military jacket out of a storage container from what feels like a past life. It has a detachable hood, and I much prefer this jacket without it. I love a classic white button down. I honestly think I could wear one every day and never feel bored because they’re so versatile. This one is a boyfriend cut and pairing it with a boxy jacket prompted me to anchor it with a belt. I've worn this pink leopard print scarf many times but never thought to wear it as a belt before. I think I will try to find new ways to wear scarves
To finish it off, I added my Louis Vuitton bag because its classic print seems to evoke a utilitarian quality that fits the jacket. And, of course, my Cynthia Vincent for Target wedges…because if I was on a safari I would definitely want to wear five inch wedges.
This won't be my last attempt at safari chic. In the process of deciding upon this outfit, I tried on a few others that I am excited to wear. I just need some warmer weather!
