Monochrome Love

Hello lovely readers!

Since Spring has sprung, Capetonians have experienced several seasons - Summer heat, Spring freshness, Winter rain and Autumn crispness. These photos were taken on a particularly lovely day, when I went to lunch at Knife restaurant at Crystal Towers.  As most people will do on a stunning day, we enjoyed our lunch on the terrace, with the stunning view of Table Mountain as the backdrop.

Its days like these that I’m reminded of the beautiful city we live in, and as I’m writing this, I have an overcast view of Table Mountain - beautiful nonetheless. I suppose we should enjoy this lovely city as it is now, before the tourists descend, resulting in overcrowded madness at all our favourite hangouts! Before we know it, it will be beaches packed to capacity, Hout Bay drives filled with traffic and queues of people wanting to visit Robben Island and Table Mountain.

Its unfortunate, that this is also the month my kids are submerged in exams, which means I cannot go indulge in the "tourist in your own town” activities.

I therefore hope, that those of you who are able, go out and enjoy our sights and become a tourist for a day, at least! Try the City Sightseeing Tour it’s so much fun!

Enjoy the pics of my take on the monochrome trend - I’ve paired my polka dot shirt with a relaxed tuxedo pants for a leisurely look.

Since it was October, my little bit of pink I wore all month
