A Nod to Safari Chic

Safari-inspired styling is always a favorite this time of year. There’s such a relaxed elegance about safari chic looks. Utility jackets. Loose-fitting shirts. Natural fabrics. Neutral tones. All perfect elements for laid-back summer style.

Last Saturday, I pulled together a few separates that when worn together give a nod to the safari chic trend. My J.Crew oversized boy shirt in olive is a great stand-in for a utility jacket and is an effortless topper for a white tee.

I’ve been a huge fan of the combination of olive and yellow since Marissa Webb revealed The New BR, a collection filled with fresh combinations of the colors. So, my yellow, ostrich-embossed Kate Spade clutch adds the perfect pop of color.

When I first spotted the Report Signature “Pammy” sandals in Burlington Coat Factory, I knew they would be a go-to, neutral sandal for the spring and summer.
