weekend inspiration: safari & travel

Something I've been inspired by lately is the safari/travel style. Thinking back, I've always been drawn to certain elements of this style, but never fully realized it. Here's a few things that have gotten me into it lately:
1) a trip to Pottery Barn (their botanical prints, travel goods, and the Cavallini line)
2) watching The Painted Veil and Jurassic Park : )
3) Q's new military uniforms
4) thinking about our upcoming Hawaii trip

(bomber jacket by jcrew; sofa by pinch design via olivet; luggage by JW Hulme Co via wool & spool)

I've been full of creative ideas with this in mind (but not doing Indiana Jones marathons just yet). Anyone else liking this style?

So cute, I love that entire first outfit from J. Crew, pairing such a girly skirt with a bomber like that seems intimidating, but looks so cute. I'm so jealous you're going to Hawaii, it's so nice to have something to look forward to and plan for.

oooh, I really like this style too. I like too many styles I think. Seeing all this makes me want to travel so bad. That's right, I am traveling to Israel in one week. But I'd like to go to Africa or something like that. I put that Painted Veil movie in my Netflix que thanks to you, so it should be coming soon. I love everything you've posted about here, the jacket, the dress, the sofa and the bag. I love leather bags like that. I love all your inspiration lately. I need to get my act in gear on my blog. Maybe after I get back from my trip. Things have been a little cray around here. Have a wonderful weekend.

I like this look too! It reminded me of Rebecca's posts over on Ardent Sparrow (have you seen it?) she is doing a little travel series and this would fit perfectly. Can just imagine whisking myself away with that luggage you showed!
I wish I had a little of your creativity this week, I have been feeling quite the opposite and it has become a struggle! But I know I will pull out of it v.soon.
Have a great weekend.

Hello Ali! Love all of this! The Painted Veil is a wonderful movie, isn't it? I would really like to read the book. I really love that lovely dress and that bag just makes me want to faint! (no pun intended!)
