A few nights ago, Allen and I had an Indiana Jones marathon for his school project. Ergo, the look today. I felt working for the Australian Zoo because I ended up looking like Terri Irwin or one their staff there =) Nonetheless, this was an easy get-up, thanks to the monochromatic tone. Just grab everything that has the same shade/color in your closet and off you go! (I literally grabbed these because my boss called me to cover the day for him).

The polo shirt was a thrift find from Bambang during my college days. It was all worth the trip because I only got it for about P30 (less than $1) and I've been using it for a decade already. Although the fabric has been thinning out, it gives the polo a fake "sheer" look which you can wear during summer (despite the sleeves). One thing I also love about it is the gold and silvery thread woven on the fabric, which from a certain angle (under a light or sun) gives the top a"shiny, shimmery, splendid!" look!.

Complete the outfit with Jean and Rosz animal necklace. When I bought this necklace I thought that the use would be limited because, well, it's kind of hard to imagine having an elephant hanging in your neck like you are part of a tribal council. But surprise, surprise!

Since animal-anythings are trending these days (leopard/cheetah prints, insect rings, meat couture by Lady Gaga, Lady Gaga as an egg, Lady Gaga as a rhino [her anatomical prosthetics at the Grammy's- read the article at Jean and Rosz site] Animal liberation/PETA, etc!), you can pair this with whatever you can think of! (I once wore this to a job interview). I also wore the multilayer wooden bead bracelet to have a cohesive rustic look.
As an accent, I used my orange clip-on garter belt (bought from a bazaar) to add a bit of color to a dangerously-boring-outfit-if-you-are-not-careful-with-what-you-pile-on!

Later , I will change to my flip-flops when it gets warmer =)

@ Lance Thanks! I should've changed the title to Animal Kingdom, as my belt is a butterfly too! Teehee!

@ Kevin I love it too! It's a good buy from Jean and Rosz =)
