Summer of Wanderlust – Maasai Mara

As we pulled up the Maasai village deep in the heart of the Mara, the land was dotted with bright pops of red and blue.  The Maasai wear the traditional shuka, a cotton piece of fabric that can be worn in a variety ways.  The bold red color a camouflage against the surrounding earth.

Strands of millions of tiny beads drape each woman’s neck and they are breathtakingly regal.  Like other women I have seen in places like Rajasthan, India,  I am blown away by their beauty and fearless embrace of color.  They are jewels scattered across the vast landscape.

This week’s look book is inspired by these sacred people and their unparalleled adornment.

You can read more about my travels to Kenya, here.  If you are looking for more Africa inspired fashion, check out this and this.
