Three Ways to Wear Thursday: Safari, Safari, Safari

IMG_9689

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”.

Outfit details + more photos here.

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.

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to VIP for Throwback Thursday!

Today, we are going on an escapade *cue Janet Jackson’s Escapade* back in time–I have had Janet Jackson stuck in my head since early this morning…*cue Rhythm Nation* Oh, it was such a fun ride to the movie set–or at least it was for me…I cannot speak for everyone else in the car *wink*  I digres…back to why we are adventuring back in time!

I recently entered REDBOOK  “Real Women Style Awards,” and to celebrate TBT, I want to share with y’all five of the ten outfits I submitted. Hopefully, the VIP will be one of the top 25 finalists…*fingers crossed* BUT we will not know until April 8th…Soooo while we wait, let’s take a look at these five throwback outfits *wink* 

Ah...this look has me so ready for summer! Do y'all remember this cute outfit from the VIP Accessories Challenge: First Strapless Dress of Summer series?
