This is what I wore the day we embarked on our honeymoon trip to Africa. I’m currently in the process of editing over 2000 photos, but pictures from our trip will definitely be up soon! In the meantime, enjoy this “before” picture. I’ll warn you now that I’m several shades darker after my two weeks under African sun. 🙂
For the trip to Africa, we had been given forewarning that we needed to wear natural khaki colors and nothing bright to attract the animals. You can imagine my dismay as I live for the brights! I did manage to find a few pieces of clothing in my closet in neutral yellows and grays. My original plan of pairing my neutral tops with just jean shorts also ended up failing once I learned that blues apparently attract mosquitos (and malaria). Thankfully, a few days before we left for our trip I was able to find these perfect little olive green shorts at Macy’s. You can’t imagine how relieved I was!
And you are seeing correctly. I’m wearing sandals with no heel. *gasp!!* If I could walk in sand for several miles in heels, I would. But unfortunately even that will end up killing my feet. These sandals are gonna be just the ticket. 🙂
