Lola's on Long Street| workwear lookpost



During my last weeks at work I popped into a darling little restuarant bistro, Lola's, on Long Street for an informal meeting and also grabbed a bite to eat. Whilst sitting there I soaked up the fusion of sounds and smells emanating from the delis and coffee shops. There is such a vibey atmosphere, and with the authentic mix of diverse cultures, you literally feel as if you’re sitting in a remote vacation spot! It's also a proud moment when one sees our public transport system in full force (the scheduled Myciti buses); still in it's infancy; yet efficient enough to rank on par with those of developed countries. I am passionate about South Africa and my heart fills with pride when we experience these little successes as a country, making us more marketable to the rest of the world. Go SA!
Long Street is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike

Myciti buses run regularly down Long Street as part of the new public transport system

Lola's boast a simple menu, but enough to cater for most tastes. I thoroughly enjoyed the grilled vegetable salad, as well as a few cups of red cappuccino, my non-caffeine fix.

Whilst I can’t remember what I wore, here’s another lookpost on workwear. I really enjoy floral print, and since Spring and the warmer weather was nowhere to be seen, I decided to bring some colour to a dreary, Spring day.
