South Africa Wish List

J.Crew passport cover, Linell Ellis clutch

The flights have been booked, the window seats chosen, the AirBnB secured, the day trips booked…I’m ready for my next big trip! If you’ve been following me on Twitter you’ll know where I’m headed, but for those of you who don’t…it’s South Africa! I depart in less than a month, spending a one-day layover in London (my first time), two days in Johannesburg just in time for Fashion Week (seriously, NYFW is for newbs; time to go international!), and then a full week in the glorious Cape Town. With under a month to go I’m in full acquisition mode, trying to make sure I have anything and everything I may need, sartorial and otherwise.

Here’s a peak into what I’m hoping to be packing…

For Love and Lemons “Antigua Mini Dress”; for a casual yet trendy date out; hoping this won’t be too skin-baring, but paired with a leather jacket I think it will perfect (and maybe even a good look for Fashion Week!).

Going with the spring trend of “cool girl gingham”, a printed midi skirt is a perfect-for-layering multi-use piece to have packed. It could be worn with sandals and a tee for casual exploring, or with a button up for a more dressed up vibe. Definitely a piece to wear for the wineries, too!

When you go to Africa, you like, have to go on a safari. This Philip Lim dress is the perfect dress for four-wheeling around the desert amongst the wildlife, though this vintage-lover will probably end up in a thrifted Banana Republic (they did begin as safari wear, did you know!?)

As for footwear, I’ll be bringing a bunch of my favorites but am coveting some cozy yet sporty-trendy flat sandals. These glammed up Steve Madden’s are perfect for pairing with cuffed denim or flirty dresses.

And, because I’ll be in Africa and on the coast and diving into pools, one swimsuit isn’t enough. This Kiini Swimsuit is the perfect blend of bohemian trendy and bold colors to play off the natural scenery. #gimme

Case of Love Camera bag (for toting around and keeping my camera safe), from Fashion Week to the beach; shark diving and the safari, this bag will be chic yet purposeful.

Something about polka dots screams “flirty and fabulous”, and this being an anniversary trip with my love, that is definitely the vibe I’m going for. I’m thinking this Rock Frock dress for a day date of exploring the city innards.

 

Have you ever traveled to Cape Town or Johannesburg? What would YOU pack?
