Happy Saturday Everyone!
I know it’s been almost a month since my last blog post. Sorry for the long hiatus! I returned from my trip to South Africa two weeks ago and I spent that time catching up with friends and work. I even got to see Hamilton, while it was in Charlotte and it’s one of the best musicals I’ve ever seen. I definitely recommend seeing it if it comes to a city near you!
So, South Africa was honestly the best vacation I’ve ever taken. I spent my time primarily in Johannesburg and Cape Town and got to do a whole lot like going on a safari, learning more about Nelson Mandela and Apartheid, saw where the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean meet and ate waaaay too much food. I completely fell in love with the country and I can’t wait to go back! Today’s blog post is going to be different, in the sense that I’m going to feature 5 of my favorite outfits that I wore during my vacation.
The first outfit is what I wore to my cousin’s wedding in Johannesburg, which was the primary reason for going to South Africa. It’s an ankara skirt and blouse that I paired with long pink tassel earrings, a cream clutch purse and flowered heels.
The second outfit is what I wore the first day I arrived in Johannesburg. It’s black overalls (similar overalls), with a pink velvet t-shirt. I paired the outfit with a pink headband, a multicolored crossbody bag (similar bag) and silver sneakers.
The next two photos actually feature two different outfits, but utilize similar items. The first photo is what I wore to Mandela Square. It’s a patchwork denim jacket (similar jacket) layered over a white tank and paired with black jeans and Vans sneakers. The next photo is what I wore to a cultural village and safari. It features the same denim jacket and sneakers but with a black tank and checkered pants (similar pants).
The third outfit is what I wore my first day out in Cape Town. I have an orange and white blazer layered over a white tank and paired with black jeans. I also have a beaded necklace and silver metallic sneakers.
And the final outfit is what I wore on my last day in Cape Town. I have a floral orange kimono (similar kimono) layered over a white t-shirt and paired with blue jeans. For shoes, I have silver metallic sneakers.
