If Safari Chic Were A Thing

Is it a thing...? Because I does look like that's what I was trying to achieve here, albeit subconsciously. I mean, all the tan and camel shades, plus the deep green and the boots...some safari vibez going on here, amirite?
(At least, based on what I know from photos of safaris other people go on.)




But like I mentioned, it wasn't done intentionally. If it were intentional, well, it just wouldn't be befitting at all now would it, since I have no immediate plans to go on a safari, nor did I secretly go on one recently.

I do know that if I ever get to go on a safari, I'd revisit this entire ensemble.



What I wanted to do on this particular day was to put on this cool tan corduroy shirt but I didn't want to just throw on a pair of jeans underneath, even though — hand to heart — jeans is exactly what I would pair the shirt with from here onwards because it's just the ultimate easy way to go for any kind of top.

That day was one of my rare shoot days though (and getting rarer thanks to my constant back-and-forth travels from Selangor to Johor) so I thought I should make things slightly more interesting, so safari chic it is.

  1. Liyana this is an amazing take on safari chic - nothing Meryl Streep in Out of Africa about this (in a good way)!! Tan and dark green together is fabulous, and then to top it all off with Timberland boots... truly genius!

    1. Thank you so much, Catherine! I really liked the dark green and tan combination too, which was a pleasant surprise for me.

      I have to confess, I have never seen Out of Africa - in fact, this is the first time I'm hearing about it, yikes, is that bad? I adore Meryl Streep as an actress so I would have loved to watch it!

    1. Thank you Judy! <3 Never really was much of a tan/camel person but ironically my own outfit is changing my mind, haha! But I was very much inspired by the many neutral-based street style photos on Pinterest. I'm glad you like the colours here!

    1. Thank you Katia! <3 I have to be honest, I honestly am so pleased you commented on it again. Just makes me happy to know this outfit is generally well-received, when I thought would be a little controversial. Thank youuu.

  4. Hand to heart, you looked bomb! OMG, I cannot get over this safari chic outfit. I hope you'll do more variations to this style theme. It's so refreshing and I can even imagine you with a bunch of wild animals in the background at a safari. Perhaps you will visit one, one day :D xoxox

    1. Oooh hoping to visit an authentic safari for sure, the kind where the humans are the ones in the cage or something so that they're not pestering the wild animals, you know? Providing I gather enough courage to do so, that is!
