A Wedding Update: Planning for the Honeymoooooon

As you may or may not know, Travis and I have quite the honeymoon planned. We're headed to Africa for almost three weeks and are going to go on a safari through the Serengeti, Ngorogoro Crater, Lake Manyara, and Lake Tarangire in Tanzania. We're also going to spend some time at the Konokono Beach Resort in Zanzibar before heading up to Istanbul for a couple of days. 

I'm starting to stress about a couple of wedding-related things, but nothing more than HOW ON EARTH DO I PACK FOR THIS TRIP???? Not only will the weather be pretty different, but our activities are going to change drastically throughout our vacation. I'm starting to outline the dream outfits in my head, hoping we look a bit more like this and less like this on the safari and wondering if a swimsuit like this might fit into my budget for January. 

I've been thinking of all of the clothing I already have (safari jacket, hiking boots, Everlane tees, maxi dresses that can go from casual to dressy with a simple accessory change) that I'll be packing, and I've added a few practical items from Ex Officio (like these Bug Repellant pants) to Christmas lists for Travis and me. I don't want to pack too much that I can't wear again, so I'm thinking of keeping it simple with:

1. GAP cargo khakis, $40, 2. Nordstrom Fedora, $54, 3. LOFT boyfriend shirt, $50,
4. Nordstrom TOMS, $54, 5. GAP straight-leg khakis, $50, 6. Nordstrom Vince bermuda shorts, $160

Has anyone been on safari?? What do you recommend as far as clothing? I'm pretty good at packing light, and want to keep that up for this trip, but also don't want to be without something that you found essential! 

Lastly, I'm not going to be able to post at all while I'm gone. I'm hoping to plan ahead enough that I have around 18 guest posts. If you're interested, please email me at brimarie@workclothesisuppose.com so that we can chat about details. Ideally I'd have all of the posts to me by 1/25 so that I can get them all queued up before the wedding, so hopefully I'm giving lots of advance warning to make that possible :)
