Happy Monday beautiful people! I made a quick pop down to Cape Town last week for a bit of work and a bit of play. It’s easily my favourite city in the world and every time I go visit it, I find something new to do. I will have a list of fun things to do in Cape Town this summer up on the blog soon, and one of those things is a visit to Babylonstoren! I have been wanting to visit it for ages and finally made it there this weekend, and it was everything I imagined and more!
Dating back to 1692, Babylonstoren is a historic Cape Dutch farm that boasts one of the best-preserved farmyards in the Cape. It has the most amazing gardens that are laid out over 3,5 hectares (8 acres), and the gardens are divided into 15 sections that comprise fruit, vegetables, berries, bees for pollinating, indigenous plants, fragrant lawns, a prickly pear maze, ducks and chickens, and more.
Every aspect of Babylonstoren is gorgeous and you can spend hours and hours walking amongst the gardens and admiring every corner of it. We also went there on a gorgeous clear day so we really got to see this gorgeous farm from every angle.
I planned an outfit for Babylonstoren and the moment I saw the pretty prickly pear maze, I knew it would make the perfect backdrop. I bought this dress at H&M recently because I love the off-the-shoulder design and the bright yellow colour is perfect for summer! It is a looser fit, which was perfect for the delicious lunch that we had at the Greenhouse Restaurant.
There is also the famous restaurant, Babel, on the property, which serves amazing cuisine. However, the food at the Greenhouse was just lovely and all the produce is made freshly on the farm.
I paired the bright yellow dress with even brighter turquoise tassel earrings and a bold red lip. If you going to go bright, you got to go bold right? I am also loving my new Giorgio Armani sunnies from Sunglass Hut, because they’re the perfect classic shape with a bit of fun. Have you been to Babylonstoren yet?
