how to wear a safari skirt

we’re continuing the week with our focus on separates, particularly on skirts.  there are so many different types of skirts it’s impossible to feature them all, and almost as hard for me to narrow them down to the few i want to feature. yesterday, we featured a lovely pencil skirt from J.Crew—one of my favorites from this season.  today, we’re taking a more classic approach and going safari chic.  specifically, we’re talking how to wear a safari skirt—a foundational piece for any wardrobe. 

how to wear a safari skirt

i’m not stranger to safari chic.  over the years, i’ve featured it extensively on the blog.  whether it be a safari dress or British khaki shirt, i’m all about this look.  today, we’re featuring a heritage cotton-linen safari skirt from Banana Republic.  it’s a classic look and a perfect neutral foundation to build an outfit around.  i’ve paired it with a black turtleneck top from Nordstrom, and to create visual interest, i’ve pulled in a pair of woven wedge sandals

turtleneck top 

i’ve been crushing on turtleneck tops this summer.   for those of you that don’t mind going sleeveless, they’re a great way to mix up the your summer top game.  i’m sticking with black today, because i generally stick with neutrals when going safari chic—white, black, grey, and olive.   if you’re not feeling the turtleneck top, go with a classic tee.  you really can’t go wrong.

fashion flash 

it’s been a while since we’ve done a fashion flash video, so i wanted to make sure to feature it.  junior style put a new twist on it, so if you were a fan of the series or you’re looking for a little pick-me-up this hump day, definitely take a look for a 360 view of today’s OOTD.

    Hi Beth,
    Two things: I’d love to know the locations of each of your shoots (perhaps a nod within your commentary for the day?) and I see you’re an aficionado (like me) of the bottom button unbuttoned on a skirt. I think it makes the legs look a bunch longer.
    Thanks for what you do, have a good day, and stay well,

    Love the neutrals here–the top and the sandals are excellent with it. Looks great. Jr Style would make his dad very proud, I’m sure. He’s done a yeoman’s job of all the photos and videos.

    Hi Beth,
    I’ve been a following of your blog for awhile and I really enjoy it. I have a suggestion please find so new area to take pictures around your town.
    I don’t mean to be disrespectful but your picture are beginning to be stale. On another subject maybe mixed in a few casual outfits as some one who has retired from banking, I still want to look polish when I’m going to Trader Joe’s, banking , etc. but not look like I’m dress up to go nowhere..
    So happy your knee surgery was a success and you are back to blogging.

    You look absolutely fabulous! LOVE the black sleeveless mock turtleneck top. So classy looking. My favorite pic is the one with your right foot stepping forward and you looking down. Fabulous. Absolutely fabulous. Will aim to achieve this OOTD look for myself. Thanks for the inspiration!~
