    I like your picks! When I read “safari” I thought head-to-toe khaki, and the Indiana Jones look. But these are great ideas. Love the clean look of the Marc Jacobs Drill Safari Cotton Jacket! (but not the price lol)
    I’m going to add some of the animal prints and bold patterns to boost my (boring) wardrobe!

    I bet your wardrobe is more lively than you make it out to be, Mimi :) My personal fave is the giraffe print blouse. I love how it’s a safari print, but it’s a little more offbeat.
