Welcome to the jungle- Urban Safari for the win!

I try to find ideas for my blog posts from my everyday life. What inspires me, what are my style goals, what exotic places do I want to visit…BAM!!! (snap back into reality). My fashionable daydreams are constantly interrupted with “Mommy, Mom, Mummy, Mumm” ringing in the background of every thought. But fear not, I will not let the less-than-glamorous life of a Mom stop me from coming up with creative content for you, my lovely readers. Thank you children (B & V) for demanding to watch multiple episodes of The Lion Guard last Saturday while singing “Hakuna Matata” over and over. Viola, the Urban Safari blog topic was born!

I often struggle this time of year with what to wear as seasons transition from Winter to Spring. Stores are filled with new Spring styes, and I am beyond tired of my winter frocks, so how do I dress current and new without looking like I’m 2 months too early for spring break? Answer: this season’s Urban Safari trend. Focusing on neutrals like army green, khaki, denim,  & white, while mixing in tribal prints and stripes, makes this the perfect trend for a seamless transition into Spring.

The beauty of this adventure seeking inspiration is that most of us already own key pieces to create a killer safari look, but finding great styles within this genre is easy too. It’s all about how you put them together to achieve the layered Safari look with a little Urban edge. Denim is a must, and if you don’t already have at least 2 great pairs of jeans, please come to Beckett immediately, we can help you! Vests are also key for nailing this trend, and since we are still in Winter months, a vest can help layer on the warmth too. Go through your closet and pull out anything army green, tan, white, or cream – these colors can be layered together to create a jungle palette that is both neutral and polished with a hint of safari. Finally, you must, must, must find a pop of tribal to inject some personality into your ensemble. Accessories are a great and usually inexpensive way to set your look off!

It’s a jungle out there – so go for the kill with these amazing looks (modeled by some fab Beckett Babes)!
