Most of you know that Rueben and I are going on holiday in Thailand for two weeks. This is the first time I am going to be out of South Africa and I am really looking forward to experiencing a culture that is very different from my own.
I will be taking a blogging break while I am on holiday. I know I will miss blogging very much and I am looking forward to doing some Thailand posts when I get back. I can never stay away from the Internet for too long so I will probably be tweeting and reading your lovely blogs from time to time.

I decided a while ago that I wouldn’t buy anything new so that I could save the shopping for Thailand. This was hard to stick to but I managed to do very well. I attended a wedding on Saturday and finding something to wear was particularly tricky. It was a Muslim wedding and I found that most of my dresses were too casual or showed too much flesh for my liking. I had to improvise a bit so I could avoid an emergency dress hunt on Saturday morning. I wore this polka dot Jay Jay’s dress which is quite casual and used the cropped jacket to make it more formal. The heels and clutch definitely glammed it up significantly. I was happy with the end result and so relieved that I didn’t have to break my no shopping rule.

I find that browsing through old photos can definitely improve one’s mood. I found these taken on a Summer’s day when we went for a drive. I could never get sick of taking drives and enjoying the scenery en-route. My favourite thing to wear while doing so is a sun dress. So, here’s the sun dress of the day along with my favourite piece of scenery of the day.

I am so excited because next week I leave for Thailand where I can enjoy drives and scenery in a country that I have never been to before.

I have definitely come to terms with the fact that Spring in Cape Town is a guessing game. The weather changes drastically from day to day, but I choose to focus on the days when the weather is better. This is an outfit I wore on one of those better days. It definitely had me thinking about Summer and how easy and comfortable Summer outfits can be. A shorts, top and sandals are comfy and simple to pull off. I particularly like this shorts that I bought at Ackermans recently. It’s a perfect fit for me. Isn’t great when you find something that’s the perfect fit? If you’ve been following my Twitter account then you might already know that I am very impressed with Ackermans lately. I never bought anything there until recently, keep it up Ackermans!

I hope everyone has a good week!
