Happy November guys- how the hell did we get to the end of the year so quickly!? November is a beautiful time in South Africa, as summer is in full spring. The days are hot and long and the nights are short and filled with cooling thunderstorms. The city also transforms into a beautiful purple haze with the blooming of the gorgeous Jacaranda trees- they are my absolute fav! The trees only bloom once a year at the end of October and it’s an amazing sight! Of course I had to dress up and capture the beautiful city that I live in and show it off!
Also as a fun thing recently, Vogue Eyewear invited me to experience #MyCityInVogue. They are currently running a very fun competition on Instagram where every month you share your favourite spot for different events (brunch, tapas, picnic etc.) and you could win the experience at your favourite spot for you and 3 friends! Vogue invited me to share my favourite Tapas spot, and we picked the lovely Social on Main. We were spoiled with drinks, food and good vibes and overall had an amazing afternoon.
What’s better than to spend a Sunday afternoon having mojitos with your 3 best friends? The next theme for #MyCityInVogue is Picnics! Share your favourite picnic spot on Instagram and win the experience for yourself!
To match the beautiful jacaranda trees on the day, I picked my gorg purple sunglasses- aren’t they pretty? I got this cotton candy pink dress from Mango recently, and haven’t stopped wearing it- it’s so flowy and easy going, I wear it to work and then with some heels for a night out. These heels were an amazing buy last year- they were a bit pricey but the wear I have gotten out of them has paid off! I also added a floral clutch to match the whole vibe of the scene, and I love how the look came out.
Don’t you just love these Jacaranda trees?
