Today I chose to pick a trend and commit to it from head to toe. I find it helps turn what could be a 15 min. outfit selection into a swift 5 min. – try it next time you find yourself staring into the oblivion of your closet.
When I first spotted the safari style a couple years back, I knew the key piece worth investing in would be a pair of fitted cargo pants. Around that same time Martin + Osa (the former American Eagle designer boutique) was going out of business, and there just happened to be one right around the corner from my office. With everything 70% off, I felt even more safe in my decision to try out the safari trend, and nabbed a pair of deep army green cargo pants.
I’ve since then added some key accessories, like a pair of rustic ankle boots from All Saints that I’ve literally been living in ever since I bought the last pair from Bloomingdales – god bless that sales person who hunted them down for me, no pun intended…
Striped Tank & Cargo Pants: Martin + Osa (splurge vs. steal). Blazer: Urban Outfitters (similar here and here). Boots: All Saints. Jewelry: cuff was a gift from my grandma, and turqouise ring was handed down by my mom, circa 1970. Sunglasses: random boutique buy from The Grove (cool acetate pair here).
