Sophisticated Safari

My current thoughts are for something along the lines of 'Sophisticated Safari'.
Its a good summer look, that can be worn to work.
So I am thinking a Safari inspired jacket with simple wide leg pants, gored long skirt and contrast top. My accessory would probably be a beaded necklace.

I was hankering after a red suit, but I think a khaki/sage type colour would be a whole lot more wearable, and I could introduce the red in a knit top as a twist.

My starting point is going to be this jacket - Simplicity 4231, which is now OOP but I think bridges the gap between Safari and office wear.

Love this jacket, Ruthie! I was also thinking about safari inspired things (there was some stuff in the last BWoFs), it looks just great.

Hope you will have time to do this jacket!
