Flashback Friday: Military + Safari Looks


Just when you thought I forgot about Flashback Friday posts, I'm back with a plethora of pictures featuring bad photo quality and bad blonde highlights. :-) Instead of showing you multiple ways to wear one item for Flashback Friday though, I'm showing a bunch of different military + safari outfits. I'm calling it "military + safari" because as I started to save outfits for this post I realized there really isn't much difference between the two trends. They both call for a large amount of olive and neutral colors and have an overabundance of cargo pockets. Some looks are decidedly more military or more safari, but I decided I would include all of them and let you choose. Are you a fan of this trend? Which outfit do you like the best?












Military + safari shopping options

1. Old Navy vest, $28
2. Urban Outfitters green vest, $69
3. Sierra Trading Post skirt, $39.95
4. 6pm cargo skirt, $34.99
5. Urban Outfitters vest, $69
6. Target belt, $10.39
7. Old Navy jacket, $39.94
8. Ralph Lauren cargo skirt, $89.50

  4. Awesome post, J! I love when you do these compilation entries! =D  All of your outfits are great (like always), but I have to say I have my favorites! These are my favorites:

    1.  The all white ensemble with the military jacket, 
    2.  The olive green shorts, black blouse and edgy statement necklace
    3.  The snakeskin top with the belted skirt

    Sorry I couldn't just pick one look =D And as I'm sure you can tell, I'm a huge fan of both military and safari trends!

  10. I love how you've shown many different military and safari looks. Its nice to see the different options and then you can apply it to your wardrobe. My favorite is the one with the military jacket and the white shorts and white tank top.

  14. I'm a fan of this trend! Funny to read your post today because I happen to have chosen a military + safari look myself this morning (orange zebra H&M blouse and military green NY&Co chinos). It's a tough call, but I think outfit #4 (the white t and shorts paired with military jacket) and the last one (black blouse and military green shorts) are my definite faves.

  27. Gosh, I hope this doesn't sound inappropriate but you have the BEST legs! Inspiration for the treadmill for sure! I really like the last look with the black shirt. The necklace and heels take it into very stylish territory.

  29. I actually have two favorites...the one with the glitzy sequined skirt and the two-pocket safari shirt - I like the mixture of feminine and masculine elements.  My other favorite is the black shirt with the olive green shorts - that outfit just looks comfy!

  30. Hooray! I really did almost think you gave up on Flashback Fridays! I'm so happy they're back. They are back, right? :-D

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh my gosh Kate you just made me laugh! :-) I won't be doing them every Friday, but I'm glad to hear you enjoy them and will definitely consider doing them more often!
