What I Would Have Worn In Africa This Spring! | Fashionable Safari Outfits

Our family had a very exciting trip planned to Africa this spring that we canceled for obvious reasons. I was pretty upset, but I am thankful we’re healthy and still getting quality family time at home!

In a recent video, I asked if you wanted to see what I would have packed for an African safari, and you overwhelmingly said yes! I’m sharing those items and what I ended up keeping below. When shopping for Africa, my inspiration was Meryl Streep’s character in Out Of Africa. Have you seen it??

#1 | A.L.C. Dress

I decided to keep this gorgeous A.L.C. dress because a shirt dress is pretty versatile, and I knew I’d wear it again…even if it is just around the house for now! It’s a beautiful tan color, has a flattering belted waist, and the length is perfect (I’m 5’4” for reference). The utility trend is very popular right now and I was excited to find this elegant option!

#2 | Green Romper

This green romper by Pistola also goes along with the utility trend. The longer inseam (5”) is age-appropriate so no need to worry about it being too short! I love the buttons down the front and on the sides, and the pockets! I’ll be sharing more utility trend favorites in a post next week!

#3 | Self Portrait Strapless Top

How fun is this strapless top by Self Portrait!? It’s the perfect mix of sexy, modest, and chic. It has a flattering belted waist, cool pockets, and zipper up the front! It’s so unique and cool. I’ve paired it here with white jeans and wedges.

#4 | Rails White Button-Down & Rag & Bone Hat

I planned to take my favorite white button-down by Rails. It’s 100% cotton so it’s lightweight, comfortable, and super cool! I’m wearing it with another item I would have taken…the white Rag & Bone hat! I have this hat in another color but loved the white too! I shared more about this shirt and another by Rails in this post.

#5 | Marissa Webb Shorts

These Marissa Webb shorts are from last summer and are sold out at a lot of places so I linked similar options for you. I love the super high waist and paper bag style! I paired them with my favorite sleeveless top by Frame and some Vince Camuto mules. Find more photos of this outfit here.

#7 | Brown Sandals

I’ve been wearing these sandals all spring and summer. They look a lot like the Saint Laurent pair but are a fraction of the price! And they’re comfortable and versatile! I shared these and other great slide-on sandals in this post.

#8 | White Tee

A white tee is one of those items I pack for ANY trip that I go on! If you missed it, I did a video review 10 different white tees in this video. I featured a bunch of white tops in this post too if you want more ideas.

What Else I Would Have Packed

I always love to find some new pieces when I go on a trip. It somehow enhances the whole experience for me when I really “Look” the part. Does that make sense? Do you do that too?? Please share in the comments.

  1. dear Erin
    You always make me feel better with your lovely videos !
    I was humiliated at the grocery store for trying to buy 2 packs of paper towels
    There was no sign and I could not know that I was walking into such an unpleasant situation Thus the new normal has slapped me in my face and it still hurts !
    Oh well at least I am still well and counting my many blessings !
    You are one of them !
    Thank you!
