Dear my fashionistas and travelers, welcome to another fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. Today’s fashion story stands out from the others we experienced together this season because we are going on a real exotic fashion safari to far away Sri Lanka with my friends from the Italian fashion house Loro Piana and the Swiss watch brand Certina.
When we think of safaris, we all imagine light linen jackets with 4 pockets, which in the fashion world are defined as “Safari Field Jackets”, which are indispensable in the collections of all famous brands every spring/summer collection. There is no brand that has not made this jacket in any of its versions, but only one world Italian brand has managed to make a timeless iconic classic – Loro Piana.
If by any chance you missed my first travel letter from Sri Lanka, you can read it by visiting this link, I am sure you will enjoy it.
When I saw the linen jacket that arrived in a beautiful box, the first thing I thought was: “God, when I’m going to wear a jacket like this, this is the perfect safari jacket!”. Shortly afterwards, a few weeks later to be exact, an invitation from the Sri Lankan Tourism Board followed to visit my favorite dream island again. The first thing I remembered was the famous exotic safari in Sri Lanka and I took my Safari jacket out of my wardrobe and excitedly counted down the days and hours until the trip with the help of my new faithful buddy Certina DS Jubilee whom I also took with me on an adventure of a lifetime.
I am sure that many of you are wondering what the safari, wildlife and national parks of Sri Lanka really look like, so I think now it’s the perfect time to describe this amazing experience to you!
Sri Lanka is an island country that is rich in diversity of geographical relief forms with extremely rich flora and fauna. Sri Lanka is a true paradise for all nature and animal lovers. There are 26 national parks and over 500 protected areas on this small island, which together cover about 27% of Sri Lanka’s area. The modest size of Sri Lanka allows you to experience all these little natural wonders in a relatively short period of time.
I will share with you the best tips on which national parks you can visit in Sri Lanka to see your favorite animals or enjoy extraordinary landscapes and exotic plants. If you want to see:
Leopards: Yala National Park, Wilpattu National Park.
Elephants: Udawalawa National Park, Minneriya / Kaudulla National Park and Hurulu Eco Park.
Bears and Sloths: Wilpattu National Park
Exotic bird species: Bundala National Park, Kumana National Park, Gal Oya National Park.
If you want to enjoy amazing landscapes: Horton Plains National Park, Gal Oya National Park.
During my second visit to Sri Lanka I had the opportunity to see exotic safaris and unusual river safaris. If you want to experiment like me and pack your suitcases with fashion pieces in which you will look fantastic and then have pictures as proof that you can show your grandchildren how fashionable and cool you were, then this post is perfect for you! 😀
I have always run Mr.M blog because of my immense love for beautiful and positive things in life that have never disappointed me, and those are fashion, travel and some lifestyle topics that fill our daily lives with beautiful and positive vibes. I am really glad and my heart is full when I receive your emails and messages about how my stories encouraged someone to do something new and unusual in their life.
I feel great happiness and indescribable joy that Mr.M blog has become a great community of people who enjoy the beautiful moments in life and I will always try to meet the expectations of people who are with me on this unusual life journey and it is nice to know that there are people who appreciate someone’s work to show some beautiful aspects of life with unusual stories almost every week for 7 years.
One of the brands that has recognized positive energy and love for adventures and unusual journeys is the Swiss watch brand Certina. We have already met with this brand during the winter season on the Mr.M blog and if you are interested to know why this brand is so special and unique, read the story at this link.
Certina watches are known for their precision, reliability and sporty character. The sports watch brand has built an international reputation for quality Swiss workmanship, during its long history, which is more than 130 years long.
Certina is a symbol of durability and longevity, which is why the mascot of the turtle armor brand symbolizes robustness and longevity – characteristics that all Certina watches, without exception. Therefore, it is no wonder that turtle armor has been a symbol of the brand since the 1960s. Today, the distinctive outline can still be found on almost every Certina watch, as well as on the brand logo. It evokes the exceptional endurance that characterizes every Certina watch.
Today, after 60 years, Certina DS Jubile adorns my hand. It is an unusual feeling when one such brand with unique watch designs is my new partner in my adventures. The watch you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is the DS Jubile model, which exists in two versions, the basic one with a steel bracelet and the other with a leather bracelet.
This watch combines precious materials with maximum precision. This elegant men’s watch is equipped with an 18K yellow gold frame. It is powered by an innovative PrecidriveTM quartz movement, whose precision and reliability are confirmed by COSC. The watch has a date display. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and stainless steel case make this watch durable and robust: the watch can withstand water pressures up to 10 ATM. Illuminated hands contrast with the background and thus always provide the best readability. The stainless steel bracelet, which is attached to the wrist together with the button, makes this model from Certina impressive!

Certain pieces of my today’s outfit, such as a linen Safari jacket, a T-shirt and trousers, are part of the new Loro Piana Spring – Summer 2022 collection.
Since today’s outfit was in a certain elegant Safari vibe with classic trousers, a linen jacket and a silk T-shirt, I decided to wear my favorite GuidoMaggi sneakers made of real snakeskin. I have to admit that they complemented this exotic safari outfit in a very unusual way.
Of course, the beige-taupe color goes great with the colors that predominate in my spring wardrobe. GuidoMaggi brand is run by the famous Italian footwear designer Emanuele Briganti, who is at the very top of the footwear and leather goods industry and has conquered the fashion scene.
