Safari Chic: Take Two

| |

June 19, 2010

Jacket: UO (Urban Outfitters)
Shirt: Trouvé (Nordstrom)
Jeans: J. Crew
Shoes: Cynthia Vincent for Target
Scarf (worn as belt): BCBG Max Azria
Bracelet: H & M (San Francisco)
Ring: BCBG Max Azria
Bag: Louis Vuitton (My mom)

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 once if summer comes to Portland.

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!

AHHHH! Those Cynthia Vincent for Target wedges continue to taunt me from the feet of other people! I want them SO BADLY but couldn't find them anywhere grrrr.

All jealousy aside - they do look great on you, my dear! Like how you added the pink scarf to spice up the safari color palette.

xoxo, Ashley
