Around Cape Town

Hi everyone! How’s your week going?
Today I show you one of the places we visited this past weekend: an organic food market called the Oranjezicht Market.

This impressive farmers’ market operates every Saturday, near the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, and has beautiful sea views up the coast to Blouberg.

We went to the Waterfront to try Tasha’s restaurant, a new Spanish Turkish restaurant that serves delicious food in a very pleasant bright space.

We had polenta risoto (amazing), traditional South African breakfast, and a smoothie with green vegetables.

If you go to the Waterfront, we recommend you stop at Tasha’s for a coffee or lunch. Nice decoration and good quality food at affordable prices.

 

 

Winter Look

For the last days of winter in Cape Town and the beginning of Spring, here is a look I suggest that can be worn day or night and even to work if you change the jeans for something more formal.

The fine coat or long jacket are from a local brand here in South Africa that I have just discovered. http://www.mrp.com/en_za They have cute things at very good prices.

The bag is from Liu-Jo from the new collection, I chose this grey stone color because it is easy to match and is seasonless.

The jeans I had from a previous season, a basic I use a lot being one of my favorites, from SOS by Orza Studio.

A very comfortable easy look for summer, with this black and white Mango dress (new). For a casual evening to wear with other accessories, heels, or black bag to create a more sophisticated look.

Friendly-Madrid-Uterque

Gladiator sandals are a must for Spring-Summer 2015. These from Uterque (new), I found them in the store by chance they were supposedly out of stock. You can tie the strips lower down or around your legs like in the photo.
