3 words: BAD HAIR DAY.
I woke up late (as usual) so no time to wash my hair. the best I could do was a good spritz of Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder. Despite the busy morning, I somehow managed to pull out an amazing outfit (well to me it's pretty amazing..hhahaha.its one of my favorite looks in my whole life) together. As I flicked my closet, I quickly grabbed this top Valencia gave me as part of my Christmas package and the jungle and hunting scene started to pop in my mind as I reached for the cargo shorts.. and voila! the outfit was born ! (I seem to be exaggerating at this time.. dont ask why)
7jan-2
Blouse from Valencia, Mango cargo shorts with diagonal buttons, Mango khaki vest, Lace up boots from China, Bottega Venetta bag
7jan-1
I'm so glad I can wear these wooden bangles ! I bought for US$1.50 for 3 in Bali, but I never wore them because they were wayyy too big. Turns out that they stood still when I layered it over the blouse sleeves . It's actually one of my outfit's favorite details.
bracelets: studded one from Valencia too, chain bauble watch from Marc Jacobs, Moselle gold thin bangles. Forever21 Cameo pin (worn on vest). Fred Flare gold chain necklace.
7jan-3
choose a new location for shooting the photos. my mom was awake in the morning, so I didn't want her starring and asking me a wide range of questions while I was photo-session-ing. My only solution was to go downstairs where there was no one.
7jan-4
ready to kick some monkey ass (*not..)

Close up of the shoes and some trinkets..

this was my inspiration board. I've been wanting to try out the Jungle Safari girl look but I've never actually did it until now ! I'm so glad I tried the outfit out :D this also means that I've done one of my new year resolutions which is to try out new styles !

Do you think this trend will continue until the next spring collections? I mean staying trendy for 2 years in fashion is quite long.. Will it last longer?

Ohhh I love the hunter-istic outfit!! The lacy blouse combined with the cargo shorts really gives it an edginess!! I've never tried hair powder before, does it really work?

Thanks for the sweet comments as always, dear! The photoshoot pics were taken by my bf while he was around. Usually, I use the good ole tripod:)

Indy said...

I love how you're wearing the bangle on your upper arm! You look great - that little jacket is awesome!

Erika said...

First of all, if this is you having a bad hair day, I'd like to see you when you're having a good hair day. You look amazing, Michelle!!

Second, I definitely think the whole jungle/safari trend will stick around for awhile longer - it's fabulous!! :)

Nadia Kamballa said...

Love your outfit, and that's NOT such a bad hair.. :P

I think the safari look will last longer, with a bit of modification here and there, of course..

that blouse valencia sent you is just GORGEOUS. i'm so in love with it :) and you're i agree about the wooden bangle. it really makes the outfit!

Style Artisan said...

Safari style is truly a classic. It may fade off the fashion radar a little, but I don't think it ever really goes out of style.

And you look fantastic in it!

simplenotch said...

That was quite an outfit. Such complexity, I understand that girls found joy on doing the routine and matching things. Boy does too. But I'm just glad it isn't take too much time nor effort for to prepare for our day, jeans, , watch, shirt ( or tee), loafers (or snickers) will do just fine. Need a push for special place or occasions ? Sport jacket will do. Cheers.
