For the past couple of days I’ve been enjoying sunsets, swimming and safaris in South Africa. It’s been amazing to escape to the wilderness and for a photography-obsessed girl like me the beautiful nature reserves made the perfect getaway.
I travelled with just a small carry-on suitcase mostly full of beige walking gear and one pair of hiking boots but…I couldn’t resist a cliché safari chic blog post. My khaki playsuit was an ASOS bargain and the woven fabric was very comfortable for riding around in a Land Rover (although a little inconvenient for tan lines I must admit). I love the adjustable utility belt as it gives a flash of gold against the green and also a more fitted waist.
With a colour like khaki I love to accessorise and gold definitely works the best against the muted tone (as well as adding a little detail to a one-piece outfit). After spending my mornings in the same pair of muddy beige walking trousers for horse riding it’s lovely to dress up for game drives or dinner and feel glamorous again! If you’re looking for some tropical print or khaki dresses for under £10 try M and M Direct.
At the moment my favourite gold jewellery is this gorgeous gold necklace and earring set from Fiorelli (who now do jewellery as well as handbags!) The layered trinkets and treasures on three chains have such a lovely matte gold finish – I don’t have much matte jewellery but I’m going to invest in more as I think it looks so much more stylish than shimmery piece which would appear too ‘showy-offy’ with an outfit like this.
When I was packing jewellery for this trip I loved how the gold of these necklaces matched one of my favourite watches. This stylish Ceramic Linked Crystal Watch is from the new Accessorize watch collection and the bracelet strap is perfect for a chic outfit like this one. Oh and did I mention it’s only £40.00? You can’t go wrong with a crystal-detailed watch for that price can you!
It’s been so exciting sharing my African adventures so to say thank you for all of the lovely comments I’ve had recently I have an exciting giveaway in collaboration with Accessorize. All you have to do is enter below to be in with a chance of winning this gorgeous gold watch. Good luck!
