{going global}: safari

One of my dreams is to take my husband on an African safari so when we decided to start this weekly "going global" series the first destination was easy...

Observing these exotic, beautiful animals in their natural habitats would be a dream come true.  Aren't these shots amazing?

Now this is the kind of camping/tent I like:)  I could definitely handle this for a week or forever.

You can always opt for this equally charming lodge

with after safari drinks here...

and an outdoor shower.  I've always wanted an outdoor shower!

Though, I don't know if anything has ever looked as relaxing as this outdoor tub.  Can't you imagine lying here after an amazing day.

And this one would work too...

We all can't live in this luxury, but we can draw a little inspiration for our own homes.
I love the serene colors and antique medicine bottles in both pics!


This bedroom is perfect to me and screams "modern safari"!!

Back to the point of a safari...the animals!
Who doesn't want to ride an elephant in a little black swimsuit:)

Or just sit by one in more appropriate attire...

Speaking of attire, safari inspired clothing is so huge right now.  I would wear this upon arriving to my fabulous luxury tent.
and this would be my more practical outfit for a day of exploring...
I'm in love with this glammed up, safari inspired runway show from Ralph Lauren!
I would wear those gold pants in a minute and how cute is the glitzy canteen?!?

Doesn't this look remind you of the white bathroom?

I'm so in love with all things safari!  The safari vibe in decor and fashion is so classic and definitely here to stay. 

Hope everyone had a great trip and an even better weekend (b/c this trip was pretend and the weekend is really here)...enjoy!

  1. oh that tent /house is amazing. I also like the green top in your outfit selection. Do you know who makes it?

  2. Laurel,
