A new “What I Wore on Instagram” post has been long overdue – so here it is! For the last two months I’ve had a few favorite accessories on heavy rotation that compliment a variety of outfits (primarily dresses). Since many of my items are from last season or were purchased abroad I did my best to link to similar pieces if the original item is no longer available. I’m hoping to share more posts on style and fashion when I’m back in the states (and no longer living out of a suitcase!), until then I hope this helps you prepare for your own warm-weather adventures in the coming months!
When visiting iconic destinations like the pyramids, I like to wear something timeless (rather than trendy) to ensure I’ll love our pictures for decades to come. This popover top is perfect for warm weather and pairs beautifully with all sorts of skirts, including this flowy circle skirt. I got a lot of questions about my belt on Instagram and it’s just a normal brown leather belt that I got in a larger size so I could tie it instead of buckle the belt.
When taking bush planes between safari lodges, luggage is restricted to 20kg per person in soft-sided duffles. We are obsessed with our leather duffles from Very Troubled Child with their whimsical animal designs inspired by the luggage in Wes Anderson’s Darjeeling Limited.
I love this ruffled silk beach coverup from Palmona Blue and have been wearing it in beachy destinations around the world. (See it in Greece here and Vietnam here.) The tie waist is so flattering and works well thrown over a bathing suit. I found an original bamboo ark bag from the 1970s while in Provence last summer and enjoyed toting it around while we were in the Seychelles – it’s roomy enough for sunscreen, a magazine and bottle of water!
I discovered Rocio UK‘s beautiful collection of wooden handbags while in the UK before Christmas. Their ladylike designs are made entirely of lacquered wood in a range of gorgeous colors and classic silhouettes that pair perfectly with spring and summer dresses.
This white shirtdress is my favorite travel dress because it is so versatile. The eyelet cutouts make it comfortable in hot weather but the short sleeves and midi hem ensure you’re covered enough when visiting more conservative cultures. A packing essential in my book!
This yellow dress was one of my favorite fashion finds of the trip. It’s from a South African store called Poetry, which is similar to an Anthropologie. While the dress is sold out, I’ve linked to similar styles below and recommend checking out their stores if you are planning a trip to South Africa!
