Three Ways to Wear Thursday: Safari, Safari, Safari


Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

It’s Thursday, which means it is time for this week’s fabulous TWTWT! Yay! Shall we get started?!

For this week’s TWTWT, I am going to be throwing it back to three ways I have worked “safari” into my everyday wardrobe. Ahh….there is nothing better than remembering my childhood love for safari and adventure *wink* If you missed the wicked throwbacks to my trips to the zoo + safari-themed kid bedroom…click here and here. You won’t regret it–my 90s fashion was totally on point *wink*

Now, without further ado, let’s take a look at the TWTWT outfits. :) Be sure to come back tomorrow for the “Letter from the Editor” to find out all the things that inspired me to do a safari-themed week on VIP. 

Throwback 1:

Not a very far back “throwback” (considering this outfit was yesterday *wink*)–BUT it is still one of my favorite ways I have worn “safari”.

Throwback 2: 

Meeting + Q&A with Betsey Johnson. I sported a fabulous, solid leopard dress. A bold and sassy way of wearing safari.

Throwback 3: 

A casual way of sporting safari. I love the slouchy shorts with cute leopard blouse.

Weekly Whistle: Dreaming of a Safari Adventure


Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Woo hoo! It’s Wednesday…finally *wink* That means the work week is half way over. My brain already wants it to be the weekend because I woke up this morning thinking it was Friday. Obviously, I did not have enough coffee yesterday *wink*

Between this beautiful spring weather we are having here in Tennessee + the VIP safari theme this week–I am craving adventure…especially one to South Africa *wink* BUT since visiting South Africa is out of the picture at the moment, I am just going to show y’all this week’s Weekly Whistle + pretend I’m Meryl Streep in Out Of Africa (minus the scene where she battles the lion–that’s just too scary for this chickadee). 

Look 1:

I changed up the accessories in this week’s Weekly Whistle to show how something as simple as a different belt can take an ensemble from event-to-event in a snap…or a buckle, if you will *wink*
