A Styling Safari

I am beyond elated to share that I will be taking the holiday of lifetime with my family on a whirlwind safari in South Africa in two weeks! Having worked at Animal Planet and considering my fam’s menagerie of various pets, this trip is made for us.


In anticipation of target tank tops, dusty running shoes, lived-in sweats for the long plane ride and the other usual unattractive gear I require when touring, I decided to compile some fantasy runway looks that are safari-inspired. They may have no place in reality but hey, sometimes it’s fun to use your imagination!


You could get right down to business in utilitarian Milly


You could go glam with an iridescent sheen in Lanvin


You could punk up the basic collared khaki shirt in Louis Vuitton


Don some comfy chic separates with Derek Lam


Or dare to channel your inner Indiana Jones meets gypsy in my favourite runway look from Ralph Lauren

If your head is screwed on straight (and you’re not a trophy wife) than you could ditch the runway visions all together and don this super cute safari ensemble from J Crew:


Ringspun cotton painted-graphic tee, $39.50, Selima for J.Crew aviator sunglasses, $275.00, Favorite-fit everyday chino, $59.50, Rimini metallic flat sandals, $98.00

For now, I’ll just stick with my Mossimo tanks…
