Rhodes Memorial Outing

I consider myself incredibly lucky to be living in Cape Town, as it is one of the most beautiful and diverse cities in the world. Cape Town also happens to be incredibly rich in history.

Rhodes Memorial has become somewhat of a controversial monument and unfortunately part of it has been damaged by vandals. Perched on the side of the mountain, the views are spectacular and Sir Herbert Baker designs never disappoint.

I usually remove my glasses or wear contacts when in front of the lens, but I am kindof crushing on my new glasses. They strike the perfect balance between classic and modern. Another new favourite of mine is this faux motorcycle jacket from Forever21 which is perfect for the bipolar weather we’re having at the moment. It also happens to perfectly complement my usual uniform of jeans (Witchery), flats (old) and monochrome blouse (Forever21). As an added bonus it was also really affordable.

No visit would be complete without a drink enjoyed at the cute restaurant behind the memorial. If you ever get the opportunity to visit, I sure hope you do!
