While in LA yesterday, I went to the Beverly Center (the mall in Beverly Hills) for the first time since I was like 15.  Retail must be dead, because that place was so empty (old video about dead malls here).  I maybe saw two other people walking around.  And because it’s Beverly Hills, it was one of those rare malls that still had good stores in it.  In total, I bought 5 new things for my work wardrobe.  I thought about doing a stereotypical eye-roll-inducing “mall haul” post even though that’s not what I ever do, but luckily for you,  I’m too exhausted from all the traveling and lack of sleep to do that right now.  I thought I’d start off by posting what I wore today instead.

outfit: simple safari v2.0

safari outfit 2

Last weekend, I spent a lot of time outdoors in this outfit.  It’s version 2 of my ‘safari’ outfit (the original you can see here).  The tribal pattern in this French Connection shirt is sort of fun (it has a fancy gold zipper on the back).  Also want to mention that it’s been a couple weeks since I received these classic wedge sandals from kork ease and I’ve been so happy with this purchase.  After standing/walking in them all day for 3 days at a recent music festival, I can truly attest to their comfort.  If my Birks are a 10 in comfort level, this is an 8, and probably tennis shoes would fall somewhere in between.  I wonder if Kork Ease realizes that APC has essentially ripped off their original design? …hm.  This APC half moon bag was perfectly made for a safari too, it was  actually designed to accommodate the width of a Poland Spring water bottle which is really paying off in this summer heat!
