Some people were curious as to what you would wear on a safari. I researched and here are my picks and why:
1) Michael Kors Crepe Dress: Safaris can get very warm and uncomfortable, since you are in an open car for a long period of time. I would probably do a dress, since I’m more of a dress girl and I never mind the heat as much. You can also do khaki cargoes (Ralph Lauren always makes a cute pair) with a 3/4 sleeve khaki cotton shirt. The reason for so much khaki? You want to blend into the animal’s natural surroundings. You can also do olive green and sludgy brown colors but whatever you do, avoid bright colors unless you want to be somebody’s lunch.
2) Tan and White Tods Sneaker: Sandals are not recommended for safaris because chances are they might slip off and/or you will get lots of bug bites. I chose the Tods sneaker because it’s quiet luxury at it’s best and the colors are very subtle. Plus, these are way cuter than some other close-toed shoes I’ve seen for safaris.
3) Ray Bans: Sand can get into your eyes rather easily on a safari and can cause discomfort that will distract you during your journey. Take my advice: try to wear these as much as possible, especially if you wear contacts. And skip the mascara.
4) Tan Cotton Head Scarf: The cotton absorbs perspiration and the scarf keeps hair out of your face. Or you can do a cute ponytail. Either way, leave your Hermes silk scarf at home.
5) Hermes Blanket: Lots of people say that it can get pretty chilly at night time, so when relaxing in your room, throw this on for extra comfort.
6) L’oreal Sublime Self-Tanner: It’s much more flattering to be tan while wearing shorts and earth tones your entire trip. Self-tan a few days before you go to Africa.
7) Chanel Lip Balm: Since you won’t be wearing much make-up, at least splurge on the lip balm. This one has a beautiful consistency and will protect your lips from nature’s harsh elements.
