I am going to South Africa tomorrow for work and am being told I should try to bring a carry on for a little over a week. I really don’t know how this is going to be possible but I’m trying to pack versatile items that will work for me in lots of different ways. My key piece for my upcoming safari weekend? A chambray shirt from Madewell. It’s the only new thing that I bought for the trip (it costs $75 so I think that’s allowed) and I have a feeling I will wear it a ton after I come back. I plan on wearing this on the plane with a pair of leggings but I have four different bottoms to try with it as well. I can tuck it into neutral shorts for seeing giraffes, tied at the waist with a white pair of J Brand twill pants while possibly riding an elephant (I feel like I can wear white after Labor Day in Africa, no?) and worn just loosely with cuffed sleeves with a pair of straight leg jeans. One option I won’t be trying in Africa but looks adorable for fall is tucked into a black leather skirt. I still love this one from Madewell!
