affordable safari inspired look

A look that has always been a favorite of mine. As I spent a lot of time playing football or  adventurous games in my childhood, my favorite movie character wasn’t the typical girly, pink stereotype. I preferred pretending to run around as Lara Croft or Kim Possible and save the world. This meant that camouflage and rather green and brown tones were exactly my thing. It hasn’t really changed much, only that I like it to be more sophisticated and clean. With the years the perspective towards dressing changed and my point of view turned into a more serious kind of approach to fashion. Which doesn’t mean I don’t like to experiment with new things and wear dreary looks but let’s say I moved away from looking like a an action figure in order to make me feel courageous.
Inspired by safari clothing, and probably Yves Saint Laurent’s very first safari jacket, I created a look which is meant to be a budget version of a special favorite of mine – the safari look .
Especially the light wrap dress from Bonprix.ch seemed perfect to me to stay fresh during warmer summer days which we are (hopefully) facing soon.
It can be combined with the silk scarfes either as a tie neck scarf or tied around the bag.
To emphasize the feminine side of the outfit I added some sleek accessories.
