Sweet Safari




-

I've always found something incomprehensibly chic about earthy tones when combined with unusual textures and flashes of gold.  Butter soft nude leathers and blush laced lingerie paired with buckled-up khaki - it's still very much my idea of heaven..


Karen Millen Soft Tencel Safari Playsuit - As far as khaki goes, this has to be the most stylish way of wearing it; the high collar, belt and breast pockets are all fantastic finishes typical of Karen Millen.  The only downside I can find is that it's dry clean only


Hallhuber Cotton-tied Top - Admittedly, I'm slightly shocked I haven't stumbled across this tie-front top before now and especially as I was only in House of Fraser's clothing department just the other day.  Tie-front tops boast the potential to be incredibly flattering and with a price tag falling just under £50, Hallhuber presents the perfect opportunity to test that


DKNY Embroidered Mini Skirt - The perfect, fully-lined skirt to wear with a loose fitting white v-neck tee or spaghetti-strap silk cami


Emilio Luca Crock Heels at Brantano* - Also available in black, these burgundy croc court shoes get a thumbs up from me for both style and comfort with those sturdy heels!  


Alex Monroe Feather Necklace - Ever since laying eyes on their Bumblebee necklace a couple of years ago, I've been completely smitten with the brand.. and things aren't about to get any easier for me now I've spotted their beautifully delicate Feather Necklace


Kiki de Montparnasse La Reve Lace and Silk Bra - If you follow me on Twitter, you'll already know I'm obsessed with lingerie, with it being a case of 'the prettier, the better'.  With this in mind, I'm thrilled to now have Kiki de Montparnasse on my radar.. 


Valentino Round Frame Stud Sunglasses - Soft blush colour?  Symmetrical studs?  Round frames?  Valentino?  Count me in!  


Karen Millen Modern Leather Box Bag - Of all types of holidays/travels, weekend breaks are my absolute favourite and so whenever purchasing a new bag, I keep this in mind.  Karen Millen's Leather Box Bag is not only roomy, it's also on sale at John Lewis! 


Bobbi Brown Sandy Nudes Nail Shades - My ever-growing nail polish collection is fit to burst, but that doesn't stop me from eyeing up these gorgeously natural shades by Bobbi Brown


ps. Needless to say, we're talking safari style, as opposed to actually wearing mini skirts and heels to admire wildlife!

With love,

Gabrielle x

  1. The items you picked are just lovely and the color palette is really pretty as well. That playsuit is incredibly chic and the Bobbi Brown nail polishes are so gorgeously wearable.
