Safari Chic on the Cheap

A lot of fashion bloggers have been writing about Old Navy's new Urban Explorer line. Most of the items are Safari-inspired. Safari-themed fashion seems have become more of classic style than a trend and the clean lines of Old Navy's clothing reflects that.

My safari inspiration board:

I think we can thank Todd Oldham for this great turnaround at Old Navy. Apparently in March the store will release its Palm Beach themed line. I can't wait.

Safari Romper and Printed Belted Dress both $29.50:



Canvas Wedges and Platform Sandals both $34.50:

I love the pair of sandals on the right. I saw it on the website and just loved the coloring.

The new Domino Mag also has a little blurb on a photographer who works in Africa...for inspiration.

I was just there this weekend and lots of cute stuff...I totally forgot that Todd Oldham was a designer there...makes so much more sense on why I'm liking their new stuff.

Fashion Tidbits, I though about that. I guess a romper would be uncomfortable for someone with a long torso!

Wendy, I know, they're the perfect shades.

Faithsalutes, I loved her tent - it's so luxurious looking.

Thanks Lynn - we decided it was about time.

Thanks Jacquelyn!

You said it WendyB.

Ambika - that romper would make a cute dress. I bet you could turn it into one.

Thanks Maru.

Fashion Therapist, I remembered the Todd Oldham fact when I first saw the line because it's so different from Old Navy's former lines.

I'd kind of given up hope in 'Old Navy' but looking at what you posted I might have to give them another chance. Nice style choices.

AsianCajuns said...

Maru, I'd love to help. Let me take another look at what you've got in your closet...

aschlee, I feel the same way. yay for Old Navy!
