I am strangely feeling so safari-chic in this outfit. All thanks to this denim vest from Next Jeans–it exudes this casual, rugged vibe without having to rely on detail-overload and distressed fabric. It has the right amount of hardware and the wash is so outstanding! I would even go as far as saying that this is my ensemble’s statement piece.
I actually wear this vest out a lot when I want to downplay an outfit–if it’s too sexy or too formal, I just pop the vest into the mix and it tones everything down.
So during this hot and sweltering day, I wore this outfit for a short trip to the local grocer’s. My boyfriend loves it when I cook, he likes the idea of me being “domesticated” (for the future or something)–which is a pretty funny and ironic idea, but altogether sweet nevertheless. Because I love the way he pretends and says my cooking is “grand”, I indulge him from time to time. To be able to do my errands quick, I wore this pretty comfortable and breezy outfit–it allowed me to walk through aisles hassle-free and grab whatever ingredient I needed!
Anyway, although we don’t live in Africa and a Safari excursion is nowhere near possible (unless you head to Singapore or Subic), it doesn’t mean that you can’t… internalize the whole “going to the Safari” mindset. The term “Safari” is Swahili for “long journey” and life is indeed a very long journey. It’s all about how one lives it, of course, so always choose to live it the way you want (in a good way, of course) so you leave no room for regrets.
No regrets, no excuses, no apologies.
This set was taken weeks ago and I have yet to figure out the settings of my camera. I don’t even want to bother with it anymore, I just want to buy a new one. Some parts are coming out overly exposed while the rest are dark and heightening the brightness would only over-expose the rest of the photo. Is it time to invest in a new camera or do I not fix what ain’t broke?
