I’m in My Right Place

I’m actually good
Can’t help it if we’re tilted

A final look from my trip to South Africa…These photos were shot the last day of our stay at the Aquila Game Reserve and Park. I wanted to take advantage that the horses were in their enclosure, though they clearly had very little interest in posing for pictures with this camera-happy lady. Oh well. I wore this safari-perfect dress I found at DC’s number one consignment shop, Current Boutique (and number one isn’t a personal superlative; they’ve won every local award for the position!) and found the hat at its competitor, Buffalo Exchange. A match made in heaven, found in the States but perfect for the desert of Africa. #ThriftedWin

Also, can we talk about this song?? Thanks to Songza’s “Obsessively New 2015” playlist I have become obsessed with Christine and The Queens. Her smooth voice swapping between French and English mixed with her sweet dance moves has me on a musical bender. Not to mention this Kate Mara look a like has menswear inspired style down pat complete with cropped trousers and loafers to covet. Now if only she would play a show this side of the Atlantic I’d be the happiest gal.

Oh, Baby, Every Morning There are Mountains To Climb

When we were young, we used to live so close to it
And we were scared and we were beautiful
And when I peered over the edge and seen death, if we are always the same


Before I delve into all the photos from my African safari and the amazing wildlife and scenery I saw during my stay at the Aquila Game Reserve I’m going to share with you one outfit post. After reading up on proper safari attire, Z and I opted for neutral earthy tones to wear to best blend in with the surroundings of the Karoo. The layers provided us with the perfect coverage for the 4 hour drive, including a stop for some bubbling champagne and enjoying the views overlooking a clearing of zebras and rhinos. Can we say amazing once in a lifetime experience #takemeback !?

Let me know what you think of our looks, and be sure you’re following me to see more of my trip to South Africa!
