style spotter: luxury safari

In March, we had to ask ourselves the ultimate question: What in the world does a girl wear on safari?? What exactly do we wear on our feet to trek through the South African bush? What kind of pants will keep us cool in the sun while keeping mosquitos away? Are there any colors that startle lions?? In the weeks leading up to our trip to South Africa, we joked about outfitting ourselves in cargo khaki, hiking boots, and bucket hats. When the time came, we opted for utilitarian over style, each sporting olive khaki pants (with only a FEW cargo pockets), lightweight tanks and tees, and sneakers. We embarked on our first game drive, departing from Sabi Sabi Game Reserve about…

style spotter: lanzarote

They’re not kidding when they say the grass is always greener. Come August, we’re dying for Autumn. Come November, we can’t wait for Christmas. But come the last few weeks before Christmas? We’re wishing that January 1st magically marked the first day of summer instead of the first of the new year. We’ve been on a bit of an island kick these days, and it’s shown no signs of letting up. But while Barbados had us dreaming of lazy afternoons on white sandy beaches, turquoise water lapping at our toes, we’ve currently got our sights on Lanzarote — the easternmost of the Canary Islands, which, as a whole, seems to regularly catch our eye.
