A friend of mine is embarking on a trip of a lifetime a two week African Safari. I was pulling some clothes together for her and realized you don’t need to be going on an African Safari to take advantage of the army/utility trend. These pieces are great for everyday life and traveling over Spring Break and Summer. Think Banana Republic in the 80’s…I still covet my army shorts I got from there.
